We ate here in a very large group of friends close to the winter holidays. The food was very good. We ate the specials which had been recommended and while not the best food I've ever eaten, it was good. What was great though was the ponché (special Christmas punch) and the torrejas (special dessert).

They have the best soup I've found in Guatemala. If someone you love has a cold, either their chicken or their turkey soup is great (and huge--easily serves two meals). The rest of the food is fine, but I found it a little less engaging. Tamales were a little watery, to my mind. Salad had too much iceburg lettuce. Nice deserts--I really liked the sort of dumplings in wine.

I would give this one six stars if i could. This is the best restaurant in Antigua. I have eaten here dozens of times and never had anything i didn't love (not like, love) service is good and prices are fair.

Good for typical Guatemalan food. Decent wine list but as expensive as 4 star restaurants. Guacomole was a great starter.

A great spot to eat some very authentic Guatemalan food. They have some common stuff on the menu that you see other places, but they also have some items that you won't find everywhere. Well worth the stop.
