We stopped here for a light supper, and we were so glad we did. We had the mango mojitos, which were outstanding. The French onion soup was probably one of the best ever had, and the macaroni and cheese was rich but delightful. The service...More

Downtown Antigua in Guatemala, this is our go-to spot for a celebration, or just a good meal. They have a good wine list and menu and try to accommodate any reasonable request. We will be going again this year, visitors coming! Also my birthday approaches.More
