“Lovely ambiance and great food, expensive but less than in the USA”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

The food was wonderful. Everything meet or exceeded our expectations for the price paid. The setting is very charming and romantic. We sat near the blue pool at a table for two. We could hear the laughter of tables in the main room, which was enjoyable, and we still had a romantic amount of privacy.
Make sure you go up on the rooftop and look around. There are several levels of walkways up there and the views of the volcanoes are sublime.
Highly recommended. The cost is much more expensive than a regular restaurant in Antigua. The value is that a similar experience in the USA would be double the price.
They also have some yoga classes, ask for a schedule. In particular, Marco teaches a wonderful restorative class, I highly recommend it.
Of course get out and enjoy foods from a variety of establishments while visiting, don't only eat fine dinning.

“Our best meal in Antigua”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

We were in town for a wedding and ate here the first night on the advice of a friend. The food was wonderful and the ambiance superb. It was the best meal we had in Antigua.

“Romantic and Elegant”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

Live music, ambiance and the food was spectacular. There were many different rooms and one with a small pool next to the tables. Touring the entire property was also beautiful

“It's all about the service”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

I was told by friends to go to this restaurant, a bit pricey but worth the experience. Our group did not get to dine there as we were left standing at the host counter for over 5-7 minutes without a single person acknowledging our existence. We left and went to a small diner down the street.

This comment is difficult for us to comprehend as it is not in full context of their experience. This person is from a sophisticated restaurant city but seemed unable to approach the reception desk which is near the front door? We have two managers on duty who did mention someone who came with several people with no reservation on a night when we were sold out. They were angry with us for not being able to accommodate them. We, of course, are happy to be a very busy and popular restaurant with a well deserved excellent reputation and a majority of our guests make advance reservations. We love taking care of our guests and are disappointed that this guest was unable to experience our wonderful food, service and magical environment.

“Our Favorite Restaurant in Antigua”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

By far our favorite place to dine (and also for Sunday brunch) in La Antigua. Residing here we have dined in Panza Verde more times than I can remember and we keep coming back. The amazing venue, the excellent and friendly service and on top of that the food. I have to admit that leading a vegan life style means limited food options on the menu (that can be said about all restaurants in town), yet there are a few options available on the menu and the kitchen has always been willing to accommodate to our needs (including Gluten free pasta), the Thai Curry stir-fry is our absolute favorite.
Panza Verde is not just a place to eat, it is an experience; a special evening out!
