This is a great little restaurant with yummy food. The portions aren't huge, but they're filling. It can fill up, so make a reservation if you can.

The limited menu tells you straight off this is a bar with a decent bar menu. Service is excellent. Food is average (burrito). The ambiance is unique with the crickety staircase. Worth a visit.

The food is good compared to the general food in Guatemala, but the food does taste a lot better here because of the atmosphere and the surroundings. The place is small but this way you get to know the people around you. I will definitely recommend this place to everybody who is going to Antigua!

We were after somewhere authentic and local. Wow, this place gets it spot on. We were given such a warm welcome and invited to grab a table up the ladder/stairs to the first floor. Only 3-4 tables there, so very cosy. The beer was ice cold, the wine was lovely, the food was delicious, the atmosphere was fantastic. Brilliant value... More

I met friends at this locally owned neighborhood style dive. It is chic in its ramshackleness and its menu is to die for! I was amazed at the food and the price can't be beat! It's a cool crowd too!

Porque No? is not for everyone. If your taste runs to the Ritz Carlton, it's probably not a good choice for you. If you're adventuresome, appreciate something a little out of the ordinary, then by all means walk a few blocks to Porque No? It's located in a residential neighborhood in the south part of Antigua, off the beaten tourist... More

Porque no? Cafe is really unique with its inside decorations of bottles hanging from the roof and more and that they allow customers to write on basically everything. The food is delicious, while a very small menu we had the burrito and chicken breast, both were served fast and fresh. The servers are the friendliest people and make you feel... More

Small place located in a corner. No signs, just a big green door. Offers fantastic food and great customer service. The best burrito we had during all our trip. Get the table just out in the corner or grab a seat in the tinny upstairs dinning room.

The food was excellent, and our college students loved the ambiance of climbing up a ladder to the second floor where they wrote on the walls. The chef is excellent and the service wonderful
