“Prompt Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

What struck me about this place other than it was a few hundred years old and it was an old nunnery I was told, was the fact that the waiters were literally running to and from the kitchen with the orders. The food was great and the ambiance was amazing.

“Excellent food and environs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Ate there twice on our 6 day visit. The hotel and associated museums and ruins are a MUST, even if you don't eat there. We spent a couple of hours after our meal just wandering through the grounds, looking at artwork, gardens, museums. All free (except, of course, for the meal).

“Excellent Food from exquisite chefs in Magical location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The service from the greeting until we left was top. The wine list was nice and the wine good! The food was wonderful and creative, ie. a Bacon Foam on top of an inspired entree. The candle-lite setting was within the halls of the convent of Santo Domingo and were charming.
Even in a city full of excellent cuisine, Restaurante Casa Santo Domingo was special.

“Great Dinning & Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Good relaxing atmosphere. Also a good place for couples to enjoy time together. The menu was varied and all the food was good. Antigua Guatemala has great dinning everywhere!

“B E A U tiful setting!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Went with a moderately large group and had a lovely dinner. Wine list was a bit weak on whites, but strong on reds. Most dinners were excellent, and some were truly spectacular. The Santo Domingo is truly beautiful to behold before and after dark. Service was timely and for the most part unobtrusive. A bit pricey, but worth it!
