Description: Café Sky is THE place to be at dusk in Antigua. Climb the tight winding staircase to the upper terrace and you can watch the sun go down over the town with a 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. The bar underneath, with a covered roof but open sides, is also a nice place to relax with very comfortable seats, subtle lighting and a view towards Iglesia San Francisco and Volcan de Agua. The staff are attentive and there is an extensive menu (including all-day breakfast). They also have possibly the best cocktail drinks in town.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

If you ever want to see haven....you need to go to cafe sky....what a view and what a service. ...to see the vulcano mountains and the old city of antigua is amazing....we went there every night around 5pm and had a cocktail before dinner...superior service....staff got to know us and as soon we walked in we got our drinks with out saying it ....every one in this town is so friendly....unbeatable. ...music was perfect with the view....we got to meet the owner he told us the history about the building of cafe sky ...thank you cafe sky for the great time....and if you hear about the bad stories about Guatemala. ..we have them at home too...what a jewel on earth this town and cafe sky is... we will be back for shure...

“Perfect place to relax as you arrive in Antigua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Good food and pleasant service. After a day of traveling, Cafe sky was the perfect place to wind down and enjoy the view from the rooftop.

“great food, great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

The food in Cafe Sky is excellent. The staff are friendly and attentive and the price is reasonable. What made our visit exceptional was the view. Antigua has a surplus of restaurants but very few have a view, which is after all what we came for. Cafe Sky has the best view of any restaurant that we found and we have been back several times. We tried a variety of dishes, all were good, particularly the cordon bleu, the soups and the quesadillas. The nachos have just the right presentation so you're not left with masses of chips and no sauce or vice-versa, and the flavour is well balanced. All told... brilliant!

“Our Type of Place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

For us, we couldn{t have been comfortable and relaxed
than our visit to Cafe Sky.

It almost feels like a beach atmosphere when on the main level
at Sky. Bambo ceilings and decor coupled with tasteful a Mayan
theme.

The menu has something for everyone whether looking for
something international or latino.

We loved the salads (especially the Cobb Salad), the great
main dishes like fried jumbo shrimp and the burrito which
was the biggest I have ever seen.

The staff is EXCELLENT!!!! Friendly, making you feel
welcome and checking to see if you are satisfied with
what they served you. Even the chef made his rounds
to check id we were all happy with we what he prepared.

Prices are excellent too as trhe plates are big enough for
a heart appetite, Prices....nothing to complain about!

Oh by the way, we also loved the terrace view of the
town.

“Awesome in every way!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We had delicious food and great drinks at Cafe Sky. Watch the sun set over the volcano on the roof or sit over the lovely streets on the second level. Fun servers and a fiesta atmosphere make this a family or friends sort of place. Great bar as well with excellent drinks! Amazing quesadillas!
