“Great Food when we needed late dinner”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

The wonderful team at Welten accommodated us just before closing this week and we were so appreciative as we were in need of a late dinner. The Israeli salad was so fresh and the mushrooms were wonderful as well. Two of us had the spinach & ricotta ravioli...and loved it! Steak was also great. Attentive and very accommodating staff!

“Average food”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Welten was recommended to us by several Guatemalan friends. Very nice location in a quite part of Antigua. We were seated in the garden, next to a small pool. Very romantic!! The food however was mediocre (a rather poor imitation of European cuisine) and more expensive than other restaurants in Antigua.

“Great food and great service ”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

With Antigua being a somewhat small town and having a group of 22 we thought we would be limited in the choice of restaurants that would be able to accommodate us. When I asked the front desk of a top local spot the manager recommended Welten to us and I'm glad she did. They put us in there terrace and it was beautiful. Try the four cheese gnocchi and the lobster soup. Very friendly staff with extremely fresh food. Would come again and again
