After being in many restaurants in Guatemala, and this one being highly recommended, it was a bit disappointing. The drinks were average, and the tapas platter was not as tasty as expected. My friend and I did go to their ice cream shop around the corner a few days later and it was outstanding! Unique and different flavours and the... More

I thank you and your friend above sincerely for your kind words about the ice cream shop, and wonder what I can do to show you that the restaurant is, indeed, way above average, but in the middle of training new staff. If you are still in Antigua, do come by and let me know, and I'll show you "what... More

The owner and ice-cream wizard Alex is a culinary mastermind! We have just returned from our first experience (definitely not our last) at Sobremesa and we are trying to rearrange our final day in Antigua tomorrow around opportunities to devour more of the desserts, they are THAT good. If you have a sweet tooth, you CANNOT overlook this joint. We... More

I really don't remember what I had to eat. I was dining with some new acquaintances and I was unsure how the evening would go so I ordered a drink to lighten up. All it took was one Sangria with Booze and I was happy for the rest of the evening. It was potent without being overpowering and really good.

Thank you! We go to a lot of trouble to make good drinks that aren't so strong you can't walk out afterward (which has happened) or so full of ice that the drinker isn't offended by the lack of actual booze (which we see in a lot of other places). I'm so glad you liked your sangria. We are working... More

Very impressed with the Owner's attention and interest in the quality of food being served. We shared an appetizer and pizza (thin crust) and all was excellent. Each time we visit Antigua we checkout new restaurants and this was another great find on Tripadvisor. Would definitely return.

Attentive service with major presence of Alex Ferrar, the owner. Don't be thrown off by the menu having pictures of the food. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked great. Had the "mora chipotle", tenderloin in a blackberry chipotle reduction. High quality piece of meat and the sauce was a unique delight. Many exotic desert choices. Came away raving

Thank you very much! And I'm glad you mentioned that about our menu having pictures of the food. I am proud of the fact that our dishes come out looking like that, instead of like other restaurants where what you see isn't even close to what you get. I'm am so glad you enjoyed your evening with us! More

We dined at Sobremesa during our recent visit to Antigua. One of our guides had recommended it and said Alex was doing new things with food. He wanted us to try the Caprese Salad. So - we went for it. The Caprese salad had delicious juicy tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and the kicker - a basil sorbet! The basil sorbet made... More

Based on Trip Advisor rankings and reviews we dined at Sobremesa on our most recent trip to Antigua. We sat in the back patio area, which is a very relaxing location.

We had a good time bantering back and forth with Alex in the pretty garden to start - reminiscing about the Bahamas where Alex once lived and we have sailed. And then we moved on to food. The tapas platter to start was delicious and the Wendy pizza that followed was also good. At the end of the evening we... More

I really appreciate that, thank you! And yes, service has been slow lately. We have grown so much and I need to hire more employees, both in the kitchen and to handle the tables. I will get right on it. Thanks again! More
