Description: Café Sky is THE place to be at dusk in Antigua. Climb the tight winding staircase to the upper terrace and you can watch the sun go down over the town with a 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. The bar underneath, with a covered roof but open sides, is also a nice place to relax with very comfortable seats, subtle lighting and a view towards Iglesia San Francisco and Volcan de Agua. The staff are attentive and there is an extensive menu (including all-day breakfast). They also have possibly the best cocktail drinks in town.

Reviewed October 31, 2013

Great views. Great place to go for one drink to take some photos. But the drink is over-priced and they are watered down.

“Great Time!”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

The service is very, very friendly, laid back yet attentive
and professional.

The menu is extensive including breakfast (served all day), lunch,
dinner and a wide choice of boquitas (appetizers).

We had the nachos mixta with beef and chicken. The easily were
good for four people. Others had spaguetti with a blu cheese sauce,
a shishkebab de pollo and a beef burrito. Everyone was delighted
with their food.

We didnt get to the terrace because it was raining but we will return
another day. The prices are very reasonable because the portions and
quality is worth what you pay.

“Amazing view and one of the best breakfasts in Antigua”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

Try the poached eggs with spinach, they're awesome. For dinner (or lunch) the chicken cordon bleu is fantastic and you just can't go wrong with that view!!

“Wonderful view!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

The view is wonderful from the roof and the staff is very polite and attentive. After only telling the server my name once, he remembered it every time I returned. Great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the city!

“Stick with the beer”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

The location is lovely, but stick with beer. I ordered a mixed drink that wasn't enjoyable. Service was great though, so no complaints.
