This delightful restaurant was picked by our tour company for dinner while at Lake Antigua; and my friend and I were very pleased with the dinner and the wine. The staff was very pleasant and attentive to our group. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone wishing to have local food.

My friend invited me to their dinner rehearsal and the food here is great. They served us pepian and it was the best that I had in Antigua. I also tried two of their desserts, rellenitos and mole. They were delicious! Between the two, mole was the sweetest.

I ate here as an "included" dinner in an Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT) packaged tour. It was just a good basic meal; the restaurant was nothing special and did not much atmosphere. The service was average and and like another reviewer we were a large group (i.e. 17) had a choice of three entrees.

We heard about the place from the chef's mother while having lunch down the road. We phoned for reservations for our large group and selected from 3 entrees that were offered that evening. The food and service were excellent. I willl definitely dine here again when I am in Antigua.

English version: The place is very nice, with a big open garden and very quiet location in Antigua. They even accept pets there. However, the food is overepriced and it's not so good for the price they ask. I went there in january 2015 with my family and my wife's relatives. We were the only group there and they waitress...

The long, low ranch bungalow is lovely, with a pleasant garden and a great patio and spacious dining room. I stayed in one of the 5 or so B&B rooms,but didn't have any meals here since I left early each morning on excursions. They packed me a couple champurradas (semi sweet crunchy cookies) for breakfast and those were probably bought... More

Fantastic Restuarant at the north end of town. Upon walking in it doesn't seem like anyone is there and it is also a hotel but just keep going and sit down at a table. In a short moment a waiter will come and ask what you want to drink Tea and Cofee included with any meal. Get the desayuno tipico... More
