We were simply walking around central Antigua without a specific restaurant in mind, but we wanted to find a venue that would offer us local cuisine a cut or three above the usual holes in the walls and we stumbled upon Sobremesa. As we perused the menu in the doorway, the co-owner, Alex, invited us inside and seated us at... More

Thank you very much! I'm so glad you liked it! And you should see some of the houses and boutique hotels my wife built. When I saw her first hotel, our second month dating, I knew I had a keeper. More

We ended up here at the advice of Trip Advisor reviewers and it did not disappoint. My 12 year old daughter and I had a lovely meal in the semi covered patio in the back. Comfortable even on a cool night. Our server was friendly and helpful. We had the Caprese, Margherita pizza and ratatouille. Delicious. While pricey, it was... More

Always come away from Sobremesa feeling like a well fed and entertained traveler or for that matter a resident who wondered into a little world of my own choosing, really everything changes as you view the art, chat with the owner Alex, about his latest novel or admire his art hanging right there on the walls,the food is great everything...

Pizzas were delicious and not your everyday flavors. To start, we ordered prosciutto and spicy avocado crostini. If I go back, i'd consider ordering 2 orders for my lunch, it was that good. We had the Califano which was pesto, mozzarella, goat cheese pine nuts, eggplant and balsamic onions. Thin crust cooked to perfection. Kids had the Margherita which was... More

Thank you very much! I'm so glad you liked it! About the waiter, I'm very sorry about that. There is no excuse for negligence. If you could please tell me in a private message who it was (tall one, short and stocky and older, or short and skinny) I will have a talk with him and see what happened. And... More

I love this restaurant and have been here several times over last 3 years. Current trip I have eaten my first two nights here - the chicken breast in light creme sauce with bananas/jalapenas and a yummy salsa - the ratatouille with steak - both excellent. The owner is an interesting and talented guy who also paints (many on walls... More

I very much enjoyed my ratatouie with salmon, chocolate cake, and pineapple/banana smoothie. Service staff were very attentive. The fluent manager was helpful and demonstrated excellent initiative in helping suggest a vegetarian entree for me.

Thank you very much. It was a pleasure to serve you, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. While salmon is not usually found on menus in inexpensive restaurants in Guatemala, I think we offer a great value with a price that is competitive. Hope to see you again. More

Great bar and restaurant set among an incredible art collection. Friendly staff, very entertaining proprietor, and a good value right near the main plaza in Antigua.

I liked this restaurant but I wanted to love it because the reviews were so good. I found the menu a bit limited, as most options included some kind of cream base. Not my favorite. I had the tiburon (shark steak) which was quite tasty; chosen for its lack of cream sauce. My 2 companions had pasta but requested marinara... More

I am confused. Out of our nine appetizers, none have cream. Of our eight main courses, only two have cream. We have three seafood dishes, none of which have any. Our seven exotic pizzas have cheese, of course, but only two have small amounts of cream in the sauce. There are three original pasta dishes that do have cream, and... More

The food at Sobremesa is as sophisticated and well considered as anything you might find in a major cosmopolitan area. Access to great local materials and top notch service made our visit to this restaurant a delight.

Sobremesa has two locations, one on 4a Calle Oriente (a sit down restaurant) and another (an ice cream shop) right around the corner at 4a Avenida Sur. Both have the same name, "Sobremesa." This review is for the ice-cream shop. The review is simple: ABSOLUTELY STUNNING ICE-CREAM. Go. It's that simple. This place specializes in unique and intriguing flavor combinations,... More
