La Pena de Sol has a broad menu of good Mexican/Guatemalan food. We especially enjoyed the chicken fajitas. Their prices are competitive with others serving similar food. Service could be better. I liked the ambiance .

Looking for more than just a meal, head to La Pena. Nightly musicians (usually) provide for a great evening. Food is excellent.

We have been here many times and have found the food and ambiance to be very good. The typical latino menu is quite large and there are choices for everyone. Service is always good. The music is fantastic.

Since owners Bill and Mary have left it has lost all of its unique andian music entertainment and atmosphere. We where very disappointed since this is a regular destination each year that we are in Antiguain the pastwe would give it excellent ratings in alall categories.

Cozy atmosphere and good service. The chicken skewers were excellent, and so was everything else our table ordered. They even have karaoke.

Knowing that those amazing owners have been pushed out, I see no reason to ever come here again. They were hugely what made this place special. I hope them the best. Now it is just ruined.

We stopped by for a drink and to listen to some music. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we enjoyed listening to a local musician singing and playing a guitar. We were shown the new menu coming out this week and it looks very appealing. This is a nice restaurant to relax in and to enjoy your evening.

Good food, service could be a bit more.....smiley? The servicer seemed overwhelmed with our group, yet in fact he had it well undercontrol. I think he was just not a real smiley guy, making it seem he was not happy. On to the food. Everyone in our party seemed to really enjoy the meal. I had the fish Volcan. I... More

Ate there three times. Food was good, entertainment was good and different each time. Reason for 4 star is that the service was very slow on our third trip and there was no explanation why. We were told food will be out shortly but it wasn't

Our mission team group dined here. While they "were out all beef dishes" that evening, the fish and chicken dishes were delicious. I had the Two Volcanoes Fish dish and it was excellent. Our server was nice and friendly. We loved the live music and outdoor courtyard seating.
