I love the fact that his menu has what I love to eat- Steak, sandwiches, pizza, tapas- but they're unique dishes. Not only that, but when it comes to the steak, I am very picky about fatty steaks b/c the fat makes me gag. Something about chewing rubber just doesn't sit well.... anyway, he cuts his steaks like a filet mignon. I actually eat every piece instead of slicing away chunks of fat. I've eaten there several times and tried different selections. Oh also his exotic ice creams are ADDICTING! I live in Antigua so it's not uncommon for me to get his Chocolate Libertine ice cream with delicious chocolatey chunks of yumminess about 2-3 times a week. Ok well...I happened to buy it 4 days in a row last week....You've just got to try his restaurant. Oh and his sense of humor might not be well understood by many. He's a man of talent. Just think of the Drama club in high school and then you'll understand his sense of humor. Buy some art or buy a book he's written (he's got like, 7 books!).

Wow...5 star experience! Steaks, homemade ice cream, wine, and art! I didn't expect to find such a chic, eclectic experience in Antigua, Guatemala. But here it is. The food is delicious and the artwork is beautiful. Owner Alex Ferrar, Chef and Artist, has done a wonderful job creating a unique experience for visitors. Please try it, you will not regret it! Perfection!!

If anything, it is worth going just to meet the owner: who else puts unicorn steaks on their menu? The portions were generous and well-prepared. Like other restaurants in Antigua entrees seemed to feature meat, but prices were a bit fairer here.

Another chef who caters to you personally! probably seats 8 to 10 people. Unique menu instead of all the same boring things. Food was wonderful as was the experience.

Great steaks prepared with the finest ingredients. My French friends loved it! The steaks were cooked to perfection, and the cheesecake is the BEST! We have been several times and keep on coming back. The decor "Art Gallery" is very inspiring, and did I mention Alex, the cook, artist etc...? also very inspiring....do NOT leave Antigua, without trying Sobremesa
