Pick up the shuttle for 10q from Nim Pot and enjoy the most beautiful views and food. Great views of city and the volcanos. Fuego erupted while we were having breakfast.

What rating do you give when the views are magnificent and the food is mediocre at best? The views are defenitely 5 stars. Sweeping view over Antigua up to Jocotenango and the surrounding mountains. If you walk past the restaurant you get a great view of Fuego on a a good day, worth the trip alone. Getting there is interesting. Dilapidated bus with empty bottles and tools under the seat, going up steeply over a non paved, partially washed out road. Def not for a rainy day as many tables are just covered by umbrellas.
Breakfast buffet is advertised as 8-11 on the weekend. At 12:30 its still the buffet, no other options. While the cook has 6+ pans in front of her for making omelettes, she is only capable of making one at a time, with three folks ahead of you, accept the wait. Options to add things to the omelette are limited. The choice of cheese was a bad one. The cheese was finely grated, dry and salty and did not melt. The effect was the same as trying crackers without having anything to wash it down. With the omelette you have a choice of refried beans, black beans and a concocion of vegetables. Desert is french toast, dry muffins and banana bread which was quite tasty. Saw only pineapple for fruit. There is no set schedule for the bus to return to Antigua. 83Q plus bus and tip doesn't kill you but there are way better options for food. Was told it would be a 30+ minute wait for the bus, but in the end it was only a 10 min wait. Long and short, worthwhile on a sunny and clear day, have a drink and take photos.

Don't miss out on Cerro San Cristobal. Great food and a lovely view! Try not to go too late at night so you can walk around the gardens.

Beautiful View. We toured the garden. Salads with ingredients fresh from the garden, very good. Fish an chips and quesadilla with shrimp were tasty. I had a nice frozen ice tea. You purchase a ticket to catch a ride up a hill to get to this place.

Just about all the ingredients they use are grown right there on the property. You can walk around and look at all the gardens. We love this place! The food is great as well! The shrimp pizza is awesome!
