My boyfriend and I went to dinner last week at Izakaya and it was an incredible experience. Not only was the food delicious and unique, the service and atmosphere (intimate, romantic) were also incredible. The owners were in the kitchen and they made us feel...More

Went here tonight with the family. The service was great and the food was delicious but the portions were way to small. We left having to look for another place to eat.

NOT WHAT WE EXPECTED. Sashimi was really good... eggplant with miso was underwhelming, tempura as well(and not a decent size). Ordered ribs, tasted extremely gamey, more fat than meat. Chef’s treatment towards staff not the best...

The GT twist on the miso eggplant was awesome. Tempura perfect. The owners are accomplished sushi masters and students of Japanese cuisine. And it shows! I’m also glad to report if they have a raw fish special it’s because they finally found some to meet...More

Had the tempura vegetables, each was cooked to perfection, the yakatori was well prepared and the ribs were excellent. Originally thought not enough food for the money, but my wife and I discovered we had plenty.

I highly recommend this spot. Really great food and service. They were very friendly to a solo traveller who speaks very little Spanish. The miso eggplant was to die for. I also recommend the yakitori and wantons.

After eight days in Guatemala, we were ready- okay, past ready- for some culinary variety! While this restaurant is pricey compared to most, it is so worth it! The menu is not very lengthy but it offered real variety and everything we ordered was absolutely...More

The food here was great! My boyfriend and I decided to make this our "expensive" meal on our 2 week vacation around CA. With that said, it definitely isn't the most expensive place in Antigua. It was reasonably priced and the food was delicious. We...More

Izakaya is a Japanese Sake Establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. Enticing Oriental Appetizers with a tropical twist, creating a fusion between Guatemalan and Asian flavors. Fine cuisine prepared in an open kitchen, by reknown chefs with an international trajectory, which includes Nobu, Zuma & Gordon Ramsay in London. Cozy atmosphere and great music.
