“Awesome Celebration in awesome restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We celebrated our 11th Adoption Day celebration at Epicure on August 13 after a week in Guatemala. It was a very special night for us and Epicure was the perfect place to end our trip. John, the owner, was most hospitable and accommodating of our large group (9). The service and wait staff was outstanding and the food was delicious. Highly recommend Epicure when you are in Antigua!!

“DELI-delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This place is perfect for lunch. Their Italian inspired menu has lots of things to graze on while you enjoy their beautiful garden.

We enjoyed the anti pasto platter with loads of fresh cuts from their own deli and afterwards shared a perfect sized pizza for two.

Make sure you browse through their deli as you might find some very interesting international snacks! We found Dutch stroopwafels and german candy we love.

What a nice surprise, we also paid just $20 so can't go wrong.

“My favorite restaurant in Antigua”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Wow!! One has to eat here to believe it. This is a restaurant and a deli. All the edibles in the deli are made at Epicure. It is all very fresh and reasonable priced. They have lots of gourmet items which are imported from the US. It was quite surprising to see items from Trader Joe's. The imported items are pricier but that is the norm in all shops in Guatemala. Their spice selection is amazing and very reasonably priced, The staff is friendly and helpful and seem to enjoy working here which is a testament to the friendly, professional owner, John.

The restaurant is delightful. The atmosphere is incredible, a beautifully manicured courtyard. We appreciate a statement on the menu asking children to remain at their table. It enriches the experience for all. We have had lunch and dinner three times here in the last week. Each meal was wonderful. Delicious, great presentation and friendly waitstaff. The Spinach crepes and filet mignon were wonderful. My husband ate the best burger he has had outside the US. The soups, chicken, and salads are very good. I strongly recommend this charming restaurant as well as the deli.

“Good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Our visit to Epicure was good.

The deli section has some nice items but is very pricey.

In the garden restaurant we had fish and chips and a sandwich.

Both were good. Not great as the fish was on the dry side. Maybe a little
overcooked.

Service was good as in average.

“Fantastic Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I went here for dinner during one of my two evenings in Antigua and was more than impressed. Our waitress spoke English very well and was able to speak to us in both Spanish and English clearly. We sat outside in a beautiful garden-setting. It does get dark in the evening and would be more suitable for adults, rather than families.

My meal was phenomenal! I had asparagus-stuffed mahi-mahi with a side of potatoes. I then had a delicious dessert - it was the perfect hybrid of pudding and creme brulee. I highly recommend the food.
