“Go for the view”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

El Chaman has a nice but small terrace.

the menu is limited but the pizza is good.

In general its a bar not a restaurant and
as far as bars go its pretty much the same as the rest.

But, hey go for a beer as you move around town.

“Just another bar”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Sure the terrace has a great view of a beautiful
ruin but other than that its hard to differntiate
El Chaman from any other bar in town.

The inside decor is bland. The menú is limited
and food is average.

I would go back for the terrace view but thats about
all.

“Nice bar”
Reviewed May 15, 2013

El Chaman is a nice bar with a small terrace that overlooks
a ruin. At nite its very pretty.

The food menu is very limited so try their pizza.

They have a typical menu for liquor and beers.

Its worth a visit if you are in Antigua

“Great View but avaerage bar.”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Yes, there is a great view of the ruins
just behind El Chaman. Butother than
that its just another average bar in Antigua.

There are dozens and dozens of bars to choose
from in Antigua. Many others offer a better choice
of menus and all have some sort of Happy Hour
or Ladies Night.

So, enjoy El Chaman as you will others in town.
