Description: Welten was founded in 1983, earning since then an excellent reputation; not only for our dishes, but also for the personal attention with which they are served. Each area has been carefully decorated in its own distinctive style to sit the mood and taste of each customer. Those who appreciate gourmet cuisine will find that Welten offers the best of both, international and Guatemalan cooking all made to order using the freshest ingredients.

This restaurant has surpased my expectations in Guatemala, service was impecable, food was excelent, decoration magical with rose petal and floating candles on the pool and to top it off this musician stopped at our table to play some songs. What can be more romantic than this? we had 2 big tables of 10 and a table of 4 since it was a couple of days before our wedding, our friends from all over traveled and were extremely happy with Welten.

We dined there for about two hours, starting around 6 pm and were the only customers in the restaurant the entire time.
The swimming pool strewn with rose petals and candles was romantic, but the food just wasn't that good, especially for the price. We started with a shrimp and avocado salad that was average. I enjoyed my wife's beet pasta with cream sauce but should not have ordered one of the evening's specials, seafood pasta with a creamy tomato sauce. The shrimp were tough, rubbery, and overdone.

At an old colonial house, like most fine restaurants in Antigua, with pool full of rose petals, chimney, and hanging flowers you will feel as if you are the main actors in a fairy tale. Food is decent and the atmosphere makes up for whatever little gap you might find in the food.

Welten is an absolute delight... immaculately clean... delicious food... and the most professional staff in the region. At the back of the restuarant there is more private, more exclusive seating around a swimming pool and fountain that has rose petals on the water during the daytime, and candles floating in small bowls at nice. A stunningly beautiful place. On another visit I went with business associates; we grabbed a back table and worked over a spectacular meal. The staff attended to our every need, but from a discreet distance. They allowed us to be there all afternoon. Will definitely be going back every time I am in Antigua.

A true Antigua classic with a great "back story" this restaurant has great charm. The food is well prepared and very expensive, yet why not splurge every once in awhile. Be SURE to get out back to the large pool that is filled with roses! Stunning place for a romantic meal
