Set in a garden this restaurant is a favorite of local expatriates. Not at all a typical Guatemalan menu Sabe Rico's offers Interesting combinations in their sandwiches and salads. Nice place to have lunch. I have been there several times.

I ate here MANY times when I lived in Guatemala, and even though I ate at a lot of restaurants in Antigua, Sabe Rico was one of my very favorites. When you first walk by, it looks like a small shop, but if you continue further inside you will see a chocolate shop, a small garden courtyard, and a huge... More

Restaurant divided into different sections for coffee and snacks and the garden area had a very diversified menu, great smoothies, good service and nice atmosphere.

Nice place to visit if you have some time. Food was good not great. Drinks were fine, but came to the table very slowly. Some staff spoke English, has bilingual menu. The ambiance is very beautiful, wish staff was a bit more attentive.

This is a lovely restaurant with a beautiful garden. Tables are spread under trees and birds are singing. It is quaint and exotic. The food is very good and healthy. The people are very friendly. But.... The service is extremely slow. We had a large group (30 people) for breakfast. Although we had a lot of fun, but the service... More

Sabe rico is one of my favorite places to go in Antigua, and I go almost every time I am there. You literally cannot go wrong with their menu, and everything is worth the price, though expensive for someone making a Guatemalan salary. The juices are refreshing. The shakshuka is one of my favorites. They are very friendly, and the... More

Go to the backyard near stonewall. The garden is just stunning. Ordered "Pechuga de pollo a la crema" plus arroz, puré de zanahoria and one Gallo . Chicken was perfect. Totally Q150 (20$). Service was slow and unattentive.

The seating in the garden is very nice, nice ambiance, friendly & helpful staff. The food was good, didn't blow our mind. Coffee was okish, would suggest to take the juices. The shakshuka was very nice although I am not sure the spices where a little heated in a pan before to release the flavors. We missed a little punch.... More

Our last stop for dinner while in Antigua was here based on our hotel's recommendation. There were six of us (two teenagers, one pre-teen, and three adults) for a 6:30pm reservation. We arrived early and were shown our table right away. The eating area of the restaurant is tucked in the back while from street level there is a bakery... More

Loved Sabe Rico! I went for breakfast one day while in Guatemala and went back a FEW times to get chocolates or snacks. The garden was beautiful and was a really pleasant area to have a relaxing breakfast.
