I had a special guest visiting me in Antigua, and we wanted a place where we could enjoy ourselves and the restaurant and its setting without having anything to worry about it. The Palacio de Doña Leonor and its staff rose to the occasion. The roast breast of duck with an extraordinary sauce of wine-stained chopped figs was way out of the ordinary. I don't think I have ever eaten so slowly. That was until the chocolate soufflé dessert came; I wanted to live forever. The service was exactly right--things moved along, but never briskly; leisurely without being slow; friendly without being intrusive; formal without being obsequious. The garden and its fountain did their part superbly.
I can hardly wait for my special friend to return to Antigua; we'll go to Doña Leonor's Palace again!
