“Expect quality in every offering and equally high prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

I've never eaten at the restaurant but have often frequented the deli when I decided to splurge. Best sourdough crispy/chewy baguettes I've encountered almost anywhere including the States (and the only great value in the store for 15Q each); great pickles; nice selection of cheeses; great selection of meats sliced in person, including smoked turkey crusted with black peppercorns; they also have in their freezer a variety of hard to find meats and cuts like lamb, duck, ground turkey patties, etc. They also occasionally rotisserie their own chicken and sometimes have roast quail. But, it is all pretty costly. The turkey patties I bought were over $10/pound, but, for some of the only ground turkey I would trust in Guatemala it was worth it for wonton soup. The owner said they also owned a farm where most of the meat came from. For stew meat, oxtails and the like, I'd recommend going to the market early in the mornings on market days, instead of Epicure.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We have been to Epicure on several occassions and it seems it is best to
visit when the owner is present within the restaurant. If the owner is not on
the floor, everything is hit or miss.

The last couple times we have been thoroughly dis-appointed.

Service was poor. Slow, unattentive and unfriendly.

The chicken was rubbery and tasteless. The pasta was overcooked to the point
of being mushy. All the food was poor at best. The portion size also seems to
be getting smaller.

The only thing that remains very good is the garden setting and the beautiful
selection of cheese, salads, sausages and cold meats avaiable at the deli counter.

Certainly poor value overall.

Fantastic food and service !!! AAA+

My wife and I have been there many times, and the food is always delicious, and portions are generous. Atmosphere transports you to a another place...totally pleasant. We recommend highly! February 2013 ws our most recent visit, but we always go there when staying in Antigua.

“Outstanding food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Best spinach crepes I have ever had anywhere. Spinach was also used to color them, so they were a beautiful green. So good I went back the second day I was there and had some outstanding potato soup.
