Reviewed May 5, 2013

This restaurant has delicious, reasonably priced food with an atmosphere that can't be beat. The live Andean music is outstanding, the owners are gracious and you have to try the mojitos. There are many good restaurants in Antigua, but this one keeps us coming back.

This is a nice big restaurant, plenty of space, good menu and very friendly, welcoming staff and ownership. We enjoyed the live Andean music, our dinner (tasty ratatouille) and the house special drink (coconut/piña rum concoction brought from Cartagena). All that said, not really my scene... All tourists and large groups.

We came here for dinner after the owner of our B&B recommended it. The service could have been better and the food was alright. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, but I wouldn't say avoid it either.

La Pena de Sol Latina is a great place to eat and they have live music. Bill and Mary the owners are such wonderful people and go out of their way to make your experience there wonderful. I have been returning there for the last six years and end the night with the best desert in town.

Just got back from an amazing visit to Guatemala. Antigua is fantastic and La Pena del Sol Latina was a great place to hang out for the evening. We were attracted to the place because we saw that there would be live music, so we thought we'd give it a try. We are so glad we did! The service was attentive and the frozen coconut lemonade cocktail was really good (recommended)! The menu has something for everyone - even vegetarian items. (the quesadillas made me happy).
The music started, and it made the experience even better. They call it "progressive Andean" and it reminded me of the music you hear in South America. The musicians are quite talented and their vocal harmonizing was really quite impressive - we even bought cd. There is also a wonderful kid (Hi Felipe!) who makes and sells jewelry who is there in the restaurant. You will see many vendors in Guatemala, and the restaurant has wisely chosen to only allow Felipe to sell inside. He is a great kid working to get himself through school - please check out his necklaces and buy one or two (even if you don't need one). The owners and managers are obviously an asset to their community. I want to go back to La Pena and hopefully, I will be able to return soon!! Guatemala is great! (Just skip Guatemala City).
