“The Most Innovative Chef in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Every week there is a new dish, a new flavor of ice cream or dessert. The combinations of flavors, ingredients and presentation never fail to amaze me and having eaten from the best restaurants of San Francisco and Las Vegas, I'm always impressed by the culinary wonders that come out of this small one-man kitchen.

“Way more than a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Sobremesa has such character and ambience because of Alex, the chef and owner. He's creative, the food is excellent the art on the walls are so interesting. Alex pays very close attention to each detail and when you talk with him you quickly understand the uniqueness of Sobremesa. It's is the first time I've been so intrigued with the food, decor and the conversation with a restaurant owner. Alex is certainly someone to follow....he's heading somewhere big!!!

“Excellent pizza and ice cream!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

We had the Sombremesa pizza and mezcal, macadamia nut and white chocolate ice cream. Everything was wonderful and if we were here for another day we'd go back and try something else.

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The owner of this place was very friendly. On the verge of to friendly. But the food that were were served was amazing! I have been trying to replicate the sandwich we had their for months to no avail. We ate out a ton in Antigua and this was the best for sure.

Wow, that really hurt. I'm sorry you didn't like it. I remember you, I think. You were the gentleman who told me you were staying at Cirilo, but I don't remember what you ate. Could you please tell me what it was you and your companion had that disappointed you so much that you would write that?
