“Simple restaurant”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Sat at an open window on the street side, very entertaining to watch the people on the streets. Food was decent, service average. Unfortunately, wife and I both had (very minor) GI issues 6 or 8 hours later. Not certain of the source, but suspect. Always be careful to avoid rinsed salads and fruit (advice I understood but didn't follow).

“Safe bet in Antigua”
Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Not as touristy as one might expect given that it is just off the central square. Food was generally good. Chicken rice soup was hearty; our group enjoyed the chile rellenos and the vegetable platter. The 1/2 chicken was the biggest hit. What was billed as mahi mahi was likely tilapia or something else, however. Service was slow and sometimes confused, but, hey this is central America. We had to ask multiple times for drinks. You are certainly not rushed. The kitchen is open which is nice; cleanliness is there for all to see.The bar list was pretty large. The price was modest, about $25 a person for dinner including the tip and wine/beer.
