We were jet-lagged and weary and just wanted to taste something warm before going to bed. We were so pleased we chose El sabor del tiempo. The decor was welcoming (a converted interior with old furniture, a counter and large bottles, maybe previously an old pharmacy). The waiter recommended Sopa de frijol Blanco (white bean soup). Beans = Central America,... More

The place is really nice, with an incredible atmosphere, but the food, as least what we got, was bad (we ordered tenderloin and mutton), either too much or not enough cooked (speaking Spanish did not help). That was disappointing, and the service was not better.

Nice restaurant in old Spanish building right in the heart of Antigua. Great atmosphere. Excellent wine and spirits on sale, while the menu is pretty short and somewhat overpriced. On Christmas Eve we ate a nice chicken breast in mushroom sauce, while my wife had a grilled sirloin steak. Both served with baked potatoes and vegatables. Total Bill, including a... More

Almacen Troccoli is a visual delight, beautifully decorated inside and out. It has a lovely courtyard that can accomodate larger groups. The rooftop provides great views of Antigua. The dishes are hit & miss, with the lamb and chicken faring better than the seafood and pork. The service is friendly albeit a bit slow and scattered. Overall a nice experience... More

This place looks like a journey back in time, wonderful atmosphere, which makes it worth a visit. The staff is really friendly too. We enjoyed our food, though you might find the same quality a little cheaper elsewhere.

We came in to have after dinner drinks and to listen to some life music. The atmosphere was outstanding and very attentive. Children happy to have free wifi to keep entertained

I was really surprised to see three very differente concepts in this restaurant: the bar, the live music area and the quite restaurant. You can choose according to the occasion. I stayed at the quite area, next to the garden. About the food: the fondue was ok, nothing extraordinary there, but the pizza was amazing. We ordered the steak pizza,... More
