A relaxed restaurant in the center of Antigua. Really good food. You will feel like dinning in an old colonial Antigua house. You will believe that this restaurant is your home. The atmosphere is very comfy.

I really like Fondo Calle Real for the variation
in guatemalan home style cooking.

Many dishes take a lot of time to prepare if you are
making them in your home so its great to get the
taste you want without all the work.

Try the pepian as its really good.

Service is good too!

I have been to this restaurant several times on my three trips to La Antigua. It is consistently rated as very good to excellent. Yes, the servers wear traditional costumes and many tourists come here, but the food is still excellent. The menu has many choices mostly Guatemalan dishes. The caldo real (chicken, rice soup/stew) is delicious (smaller portion is caldito real).
The prices are very reasonable and the corn tortillas are made by hand! I recommend this restaurant highly.

My visit to Fonda de la Calle Real with my wife and a friend was an average experience. The ambiance and open courtyard of the restaurant are typically Antiguan. The staff were attentive, but our waiter did not heed proper instructions when we asked him to bring grilled tilapia as an addition rather than a main meal! This inflated the price of the bill. The food was okay, nothing spectacular, with prompt service. We chose the local dishes, and I had to ask for the highest heat chilli sauce to add flavour to the rather bland beef stuffed in bell peppers. Overall, a good place but nothing sensational to rock the taste buds and also quite pricey.
