After my RedEye flight from LAX, I took a nap and went out on what felt like a 'forging for food' binge. I had a headache, was very hungry, didn't know the language yet, all I had were US $ and my card. This place caught my eye! The women who work there were so kind. They worked really hard... More

I recall my first couple of visits fondly and remember my first taste of pepian here was delicious. But as I have returned over the years it feels as if the food has become mediocre and the vibe super touristy. I believe there are now better places to find good local food.

Plus, photos of Bill Clinton! We each had a great experience at this lovely place. The soup is incredible, and the guacamole is top-rate.

"La comida tipica," properly translated, is not "typical food" of Guatemala. Rather, it means the traditional specialties of Guatemalan cuisine. That's what La Fonda has been serving for years. La Fonda may not do each and every dish better than absolutely every other restaurant in Antigua. But it offers a wide choice each and every day, and it does so... More

After walking around the streets of Antigua for a few days we had noticed this restaurant and a few others of the same name. The restaurant itself is also noted in the Lonely Plant - Antigua guide. My friend and I were due to leave Antigua the following day so decided that we should treat ourselves to what appeared to... More

Enter this restaurant and you enter into a beautiful courtyard. This is where you will eat. The chefs kitchen is also in the courtyard so you can watch them prepare your meal. Went here for dinner and we were not disappointed. We had 1/4 chicken prepared with potatoes and on my how juicy and wonderfully spiced the chicken was. The... More
