I come to Antigua often where I lead groups for a non-profit I work with. We go to the Jade store next door to this restaurant often, so I decided to try this for lunch. It was just divine! The menu is sophisticated and delicious....More

Just off of Central Park in downtown Antigua, Benjamin Metiz creates and serves some of the best food I've ever eaten. Lunch, dinner, dessert - all 3?! And don't miss his fancy spices in their creative containers...

I've been to Metiz many times and each time I'm pleasantly surprised. They offer composed, unpretentious dishes. Simply put - they just have great food. Go here for delicious pastas, salads and sandwiches. Always a delight and I'll be back soon.

The place does not look like much of a deal, but the food is amazing. I had the hummus with garlic and a serrano ham sandwich. It was all very simple, but it is obvious that all ingredients are top quality and I can't put...More

Hello, I am glad you came after 4 months in antigua. So bad your experience was not so great. I should say that if you read the menu before ordering you should see that we put pesto in our caprese. Maybe it's a sin, but...More

The owner is from France, young and hard working. He has created a modern Bistro setting that is stylish and very clean. His prices are mid range to moderately higher. But what do you expect for the best quality food and properly prepared in a...More
