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

The food is AMAZING. I fell in love with a simple sandwich. The owner is what gives it the special touch. He talks about his life and his passion and how without any experience with cooking or art he came up with the most brilliantly unique place to enjoy a meal. LOVE EVERY THING ABOUT IT.

We decided the exotic was an opportunity to accept. I had Shark; it was succulent and ample. My wife had Lamb; portion was just right, leaving room for dessert. The dessert was rich in flavor and creatively assembled. We almost made a mistake by going to a steak house to celebrate our wedding anniversary. You'll delight in Sobremesa.
