The conceirge at our hotel recommended Hectors. There were five of us for dinner and the entire restaurant probably holds 20 people if that. The ambience is rustic and intimate. They staff greet you with a big smile and a bowl of warm olives. And then there's the food. We had fettucini alfredo made from the noodles drying in the kitchen, beef bourguignon and duck. Every dish delicious!! I will return every trip I make to Antiqua.

Hector's is a small space, right across from El Merced church. Two cozy rooms, open kitchen, charming atmosphere, skilled service.
And really, really good food. We shared the carpaccio - which was incredibly good, clean sharp flavours with lemon and oil complementing the very good beef - as an appetizer. My partner had the pasta special, a carbonara with homemade noodles. I had a beef tenderloin steak sandwich, cooked perfectly with great frites.
We were too full for desert, but they looked good. (Though large enough for two.)
Meal, tip and two large glasses of the house red came in under $40. High for Guatemala, obviously, but the meal was completely worth it.

This small and oddly laid out restaurant is one of the main culinary attractions in Antigua for a reason. The menu is small but extremely good. Thinking about this place makes my mouth water as I type this - that says it all.
Don't miss it if you're in the area. It's just down the road from La Merced, the big yellow church.

Tasty, although limited menu. Great if you like beef! Only one non-meat option (vegetarian quiche) but the kitchen happily whipped up some vegetarian fresh fettuccine for me, which was very tasty. Lovely atmosphere in this small charming restaurant. Go early (before 8) for a table as no reservations are taken.

The Chef has a limited menu, but the food is very high quality and the flavors are amazing. I like the concept: Hector chooses the menu for the day and gives you the quality you will expect in a very expensive restaurant in any other city in the world. Prices are very affordable.
