Great Burgers, Great View

Lava is on the second floor of what's best described IMHO as a 'bar complex.' The terrace is a great spot from which to enjoy a late afternoon drink and views of the sunset - and Agua, the biggest of the three volcanoes you can see from Antigua. The burgers there are really good - in fact I'd... read more

Hubby and I stopped in for burgers - should have only had one to share, it was huge. Great selection of burgers, you will definitely find something you like.

I always go to Lava Burger for their Man Burgers. I can never successfully finish a burger and that's a good thing. it means I'm satisfied; more than satisfied. they have great fries and a great view I'm not a big fan of the bar scene but overall a great restaurant with great flavors and a great hangout atmosphere

This place has a great location with really fun people. The outdoor terrace is beautiful. There is also a bar downstairs with a chiller vibe. Great drinks and food, really friendly owner. You will undoubtedly meet cool people and must stop through if ever in Antigua!!!

The burger I ordered was great. A few things could have made it better but great non the less. Two of the people from our group ordered mild wings and could barely finish them because they were so hot. Prices were not too bad. Over all it was a good restaurant with an amazing view. For sure worth a visit.

The place where Lava is also has 3 other bars: Ocelot, Whiskey Den and another bar/restaurant that was always empty. Lava is a rooftop terrace with tables and chairs everywhere. It can get somewhat crowded depending on the day of the week and the time. You can buy buckets of beers, fishbowl cocktails, or other drinks and cocktails from the... More

Great burgers, great view, everything about the place was fantastic. We were all a bit hungover from the night before when there was a brill party and we had a blast up on the new terrace they have there. We felt better in no time. One of the girls tending bar even went downstairs to get us this crazy ice... More

Great venue within 100m from the parque central on 4th - approached via a courtyard and up the stairs. Good music - not too intrusive. Great food. Wasn't too busy when we visited - just as well as it rained. However great viewing platform for the accompanying storm.

My experience at Lava was great! I went last Thursday, and it was buffalo wings for Q2.00. Best wings I have had in a long time here in Guatemala. The food recommendation (Jalapeño Burger) was an excellent choice along with the beer (Brooklyn IPA). I liked that the sauce for the wings were cooked with the chicken and not just... More

So me and my wife and some friends went to Lava the other night and we ate 6 pounds of wings. We asked for them to be cooked a bit longer because we all like them a little crunchier. OH these wings did not disappoint! Lava has a specialty sauce called Coca Cola Bar b Q and it is very... More
