“World class: food, service, atmosphere; reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We have eaten at La Pena three times and have been delighted on each occasion. Excellently prepared food deliciously infused with local flavors are the rule. Great appetizers are followed by even better entrees but do save room for the deserts. Live music most nights completes the delightful packages.

“Delicious food, Superb live music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

If you are in Antigua, please visit this place.
We were walking on the street earlier today, with our 2 dogs, and one of the owners went out of his way to tell us that there would be live music later, and our dogs were welcome.
Good move, on his part, and lucky for us. After sampling a couple happy hours, we went to La Pena, and were happily surprised. The musicians were polished, and the food was superb!
Great service, and a lot of positive attention for our pups.
Please don't leave Antigua w/o visiting this place.

“Always a great time and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We never go to La Antigua without visiting this great spot. The last 5 years, we have had our "Team (of 30-40)Dinner" there and have had great feed-back from our members whether it has been a buffet event or a sit-down dinner. The food is delicious!... and the music is great. Try the fish volcanos, the nachos, the chocolate cake or brownies. No, just go often and try everything!!

“Pretty Good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I have eaten here twice and each time the service given to us by the owners has been very, very friendly and accommodating. Last night I had the veggie burger and it was good. I'd eat it again. My friend ate the quesadilla and said that it was better than any she could find in her hometown. The music is not quite my style, but it was not so overpowering that I could not speak with my fellow diners. I'll return, mainly because they are so friendly.
