I do NOT like red meat. But this place changed that. I took the server's recommendation and enjoyed everything. Splendid service and delicious food. EXCELLENT!

My friend and I went to Hector's based on previous reviews in TA. To be honest we were a little taken aback at how small the dining area was and how tiny the kitchen was but they really delivered on the food. I had the...beef bourguignon and my friend had sea bass. Whatever the restaurant may have lacked on first impression, it made up for it in the quality of the food, the service, and friendliness. Do give Hector's a try if you're looking for quality food with a French flair in the most unlikely of places.More

As vegetarians, we usually go to restaurants which get good reviews and have at least a few vegetarian options. Hector's Bistro had very good reviews, and served meat and fish, but had plenty to please us. A tiny place, the service was excellent. The waitress...was the bar tender, and made a perfect margarita. there were very good sweet potato fries, with home made catsup, angel hair pasta with a thin but intense mushroom sauce, roasted whole tomatoes, and a thick mango shake . Every thing excellent!More

This was one of our favourite restaurants in Antigua. It's small but the food is good and the ambience is relaxed.

We had the tenderloin medaillons and it is very very tasty! Perfectly cooked meat and the sauce was amazing. Perfect combination! We returned a couple of days later with friends and had the same as it was so good!! Our friends also enjoyed their meal...(also tenderloin and fish!).. very recommended!!!More

In a small house at a beautiful square, you have a very simple but nice French Bristo. The food is very good, they are very kind and the ambiance has a very good mood.

This is a gem of a restaurant. It has expanded, but is still a tiny restaurant. The food is not inexpensive, but is delightful and worth every Quetzal! Very excited to see they are now serving lunch as well!

Excellence is not the cheapest place in Antigua. Nor is it the most expensive. However it is probably the best place for a quality meal in the whole city. Hectors never disappoints and always rise a great deal at a reasonable price albeit a bit...expensiveMore
