We lucked into this restaurant while exploring the area close to Hotel Sor Juana. Like many places in Antigua, this has a rather plain front hiding a beautiful courtyard. The service and food were excellent. The traditional bean soup, chicken pepian, rice with shrimp and...More

We were on an enjoyable walking tour of Antigua and we stopped at this place for a buffet lunch - they seem to specialise in this (although I did notice they do an a la carte style menu as well). It is just around the...More

This is the restaurant that got me hooked on Guatemalan flavours. I had an assortment of Maya inspired stews. They mostly look similar but the range of flavours are mind blowing. I think the suban'ik was my favourite, but everything was tasty. The service was...More

We started at the casa Santa Domingo hotel across the way from the restaurant and wanted to venture out for a tradition Guatemalan meal. This place was great! By no means is it a fine dining experience but it hit every mark we were looking...More

The restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide. It was amazing. We sat outside and was entertained by a local band that played great music. The food was the "show stopper". I had the Chicken Pepian and it was the best. Others in...More

We found this restaurant just wandering around town, and we are so glad that we did! Not only was the food and service top-knotch, but the view and surroundings as stunning as the rest. Reasonably priced and worth every quetzal.
