Recommended by our B&B. Authentic Guatemalan food with a large menu.TGhey have 2 locations on Calle del Arco because the original one can't handle all the foot traffic so they opened a 2nd opne acropss the street with an identical menu for the most part.Open, busy, noise and fun.

Enjoyed a group dinner here; food was tasty, nice environment with authentic Guatemalan touches - including food display and kitchen tools. We had a large dining room to ourselves and service was good.

If you want authentic Guatemalan food...check this place out- everything was delicious- and filling. Loads of yummy flavours. It's a really cool atmosphere and the servers were all very friendly and helpful. I would happily go back here again!

Whenever I come to Antigua, i must come to this place again. Even though the now have 3 restaurants in town, the first one founded is by far the best. A great cozy environment, awesome food and incredible service.
