Really enjoyed going to a Tuesday night talk here at 5.30 pm. Rainbow seem to offer some great themed nights! Drinks were good prices and their hummus was decent! Friendly service.

We ate here on our first day in Antigua and it was very good. The three of us tried three different things and enjoyed them all. The lemonade was great.

Rainbow café offers all types of Latin American and international food. I had the house speciality chicken, my wife the nachos. The nachos were delicious, the chicken was also good. Portions are very generous. They have live music in the evening normally after 8PM.

We stumbled across Rainbow Cafe when looking for somewhere for dinner. There's a nice atmosphere here and the food was good value. Good options for vegetarians and non-vegetarians and a healthly menu.

Every Wednesday they offer is "open-mic" night from 8:00 -10:00, so we went twice while visiting Antigua. Each visit the meals were excellent, so we highly recommend dining at this eatery. It's a little hard to find at first, but just follow the sounds for...More

Founded in 1992 Rainbow offers a delicious selection of international and local food made with fresh ingredients(some of them organic)at really good prices in a great atmosphere. Since the opening of the restaurant, we've been hosting live music every night which started with our now very famous Open Mic Night (Wednesdays at 8pm).Hope to see you around!
