This is the restaurant associated with the Hotel-Muso Casa Santo Domingo. We actually took meals at many different times. The selection was excellent combining local cuisine with traditional dishes. Everything we ordered was well prepared. The service was very attentive and excellent. One of our meseros, Sergio Simón, seemed to be always present and always remembered our preferences. The ambiance... More

Exceptional in every way. My friends and I stumbled upon Santo Domingo by following a corridor from the cobblestone street, past stone basins of water with floating rose petals under a trellised canopy of flora. Tame macaws were perched here and there. This old nunnery features 5 star food at 3 star prices. The setting, service, and food impeccable. My... More

This restaurant has everything you could expect, located in an old convent with specialties that mix local cuisine with the best international dishes. The Chef is one of the best in Guatemala with many prizes under his belt.

We were hot, tired and hungry when we walked into this Hotel/ restaurant. It was an oasis. So quiet, cool and beautiful. The food was excellent as was the service. I could have stayed all day. Take some time to explore the beautiful grounds. We had a guide with us and he told us so much about the place. Very... More

We ended as a reservation for 17 people, at "La Boveda". We ordered diferent types of entrees and was spectacular! I ordered the menu of Sous Vide and tender loin and it was something blowing in my mouth, everything, the details, the room, the desserts... Was simply spectacular!

The tasting menu is one of a very good quality, quantity, and great flavor! It is basically a sample of the whole menu, the red beans and pumpkin soup, is just delicious! As well as the tuna tartare, the salmon in adobo, I think was my favorite. The service is good and kindly, they may forget about some request I... More

We really had a good time here. The food was good and they were very concerned with my gluten allergy. They displayed flags from each country at our table. The guest around kept looking at us and wondering why we were so special. Between the flags and the overly concerned wait staff visiting our table often and then being able... More

Behind a deceptively plain front lies the luxury hotel Casa de Santo Domingo in Antigua, Guatemala. There is a restaurant inside the hotel which is one of the best I have eaten in during my world travels. There are many tourists from all over the world there and the food, presentation, and staff are first class all the way. My... More

The setting of this restaurant is an ancient monastery converted into a resort. The stone walls, natural ventilation, lush gardens and church statutes are beautiful. The restaurant incorporates the church year colors and was donned in purple for Lent during my visit. We enjoyed a Nine Course lunch! This allowed us to enjoy many of the chef's creations and all...
