“Lives up to the reviews!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

I was in Antigua with some friends and was given the task to find a restaurant for dinner, no pressure. I found Sobremesa on TripAdvisor and it sounded great... nearly perfect reviews... could it really be that good? Yes! Our food was great, the owner was enjoyable, and the others in the restaurant all seemed to be enjoying themselves as much as we were. Everything we ordered from start to finish was delicious. We will definitely be back when we return to Antigua."

“Fun place with great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2011

We found this place on Trip Advisor and had an excellent meal & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! The creative menu was just the start because the owner made the meal even more fun. The cheesecake lived up to its billing of the :best cheesecake ever" and I don't even love cheesecake. It was amazing, melt in your mouth yummy.
We WILL go back when we are there next time!!!

“Fantastic food and ice cream, with a hilarious owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2011

A very cute little place that moved location at the end of July. The American owner is quite a renaissance, as the walls are decorated with his own paintings and there is a bookshelf of his books/novels.
The food was simply astounding, but with no real vegetarian options and all main courses included meat.
There is a sobremesa exotic ice cream store around the corner, and some of the flavours are stocked in the restaurant; but if there isn't something you want, the owner may pop out to get it for you. The cheesecake in a wine reduction sauce was simply divine. Beware the black vanilla bean ice cream: it turns your entire mouth black!

By far our favourite reasonably priced restaurant in Antigua, and Central America.

“Amazing experience, we took over.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2011

In the interest of full disclosure, I went three times during a one week trip to Antigua. We traveled with a group of 60+ and my friends and colleagues all wanted to go after several of us came home raving after the first visit. Alex's (owner) artistry is obvious on the walls, but also in the food. He took great care of us and tolerated us on two occasions when we nearly filled all of his ~14 seats. Want dessert? He will run down the street (literally) to his ice cream shop and provide you with another opportunity to see his creativity in flavor. Hospitality at its finest and food that matches. An all around incredible experience and I can assure you we will be back on future trips!

“Phenomenal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2011

Accidentally stumbled into this place while trying to get out of the rain, couldn't have asked for more. Great art, ambience and service from Alex, and even better food. Opted for the unicorn steak, one of the nicest I've ever had and I've had a lot of steaks! Everyone else in the restaurant were equally amazed by the various dishes and my medium rare steak was cooked to perfection. If the reactions of the other diners who saved room for dessert are anything to go by, the cheesecake is even better. Will definitely try and go back before the end of my stay in Antigua. Can't recommend highly enough.
