Although this restaurant is only once every 2 weeks, the center itself, where the kids come every day after school teaches far more than cooking. Only the older kids 12-16 learn how to plan the meal, to cook it, to serve it (in English), to make the menus (on computers) and to clean up and politely ask for payment. The 100Q (about $12) that we pay is for the delicious food, for the upkeep of the center, for the computers, supplies and and the profit is used for the continued education of the chlldren who come from all around the village where the center is located.

KIDS Restaurant is a gem in Antigua! Run by TESS Unlimited, children who are part of their education program put on the restaurant every other Friday to practice cooking, English, and raise money for the program. And they do a great job! For only Q100 including free transport, this will be the highlight of your time in Antigua.

My family travel a lot, and the one thing I always look for when traveling are unique restaurants in each location. Out of all the cities and countries we've ever visited KIDS Restaurant is without a doubt the most unique and special place.

The restaurant is actually part of an organization T.E.S.S. Unlimited which works with many underprivileged children in the area. It supplies them a location for them to learn for free and do many things they otherwise wouldn't.

Every other week, the organization opens its doors for dinner on Fridays where the Kids do all the cooking, serving and welcoming. This gives the children who are interested in cooking a great environment to do what they love, and to serve to outsiders. The idea is spectacular.

All the proceeds go right back into the organization for more support.

Interestingly enough, the food here is better than most of the upscale restaurants we've eaten at in Antigua.

Plus, T.E.S.S. Unlimited has another amazing program which is helping kids in Guatemala who are born with Cleft lips for free surgeries and therapy afterward. There are no other programs like this with so much love and dedication and devotion.

Honestly, if you visit Antigua and don't come to this restaurant your visit is definitely incomplete!
