It was pretty good, though pretty pricey. Good steaks. The buffalo burger didn't really taste like buffalo, and I have had them before.

This is one of the secret attractions in Antigua, just before entering the wonderful colonial city, going left uphill. The owners of Hotel Santo Domingo have created in the top of Santo Domingo hill, a magical place honouring great painter and sculptor Efrain Recinos, who died in October 2011. His works and even the small Volkswagen beetle that he drove... More

The view from the restaraunt is excellent. Food is pretty good but a bit overpriced. Nice atmosphere at night. Good service. Bathroom is a bit far and in another building.

Santo Domingo del Cerro is the site for Tenedor del Cerro Restaurant. The attraction has fun for all ages. Outdoor Art, Bird Cages with domesticated birds that interact with tourists, a typical gift market, chocolate factory and even a Canopy Circuit. The restaurant is very good and rounds out the visit very well. Excellent Grilled meats, including Ribs. Pastas and... More

The restaurant location and the view are truly breath taking. The food in the other hand is not as great as it should be. Average at most.

Best food in our 4 month trip.Cheap for the quality you get. We stayed in a hostel in town but we used the free shuttle from the hotel in the center till the top. We are budget travellers but this is worth going! Best pizza and best raviolo i had in whole centrzl america.

This is a restaurant located in the middle of a huge complex on top of a mountain. It is only 5-10 minutes drive from Antigua. Apart from the view you have access to a museum, zip lines, live tropical birds to touch and photography, areas of park land and a great restaurant with fantastic service and great prices.

The location is excellent! The views are outstanding. Their art is exciting and interesting to the eyes. Why have a boring menu when you have all of that going for you? Pizza, pasta, and hamburgers? Why??? Prices are similar to what you would pay in town. Maybe they tried being special and failed? I have no idea. But the location... More

Fabulous location with a view of the water and fire volcanoes. Outstanding service and impeccable service. No matter where you came from, they go out of their way to make you feel at home. The gems are the Avocado/tomato/heart of palms salad with any meal you choose, and....granny's flan. Absolutely exquisite!
