Fonda de la Calle Real has been in Antigua forever. It became famous a long time ago, when there was no restaurants in Antigua, because of their grill next to the maim street ( the street with the Arch) which attracted tourist walking by with incredible smells. It started mostly as a steak house but has transitioned offering Guatemalan traditional... More

Great food & service with a awesome atmosphere. We have now eaten here 4 times for lunch & dinner and have enjoyed great food & wine. My favourite is the Stuffed peppers & my husbands favourite is the very tasty Chicken soup. We have also tried a few other traditional dishes & have not been disappointed.

Went to the 3a Calle poniente branch of this restaurant- nice courtyard setting. He had the Ka'qik (turkey soup), she had the pepian vegetariano (flavourful stew) both came with rice, tamal, tortillas, plate of condiments, but the highlight was the delicious, pale green salsa picante- I may be addicted. Service was sweet and attentive

They have a great ambience. Lovely courtyard, which was great. The food was uneven, where we ordered a steak dish (great!!) and a fish dish (bland). For the price, I would have expected both plates to have been tasty.

Fonda de la Calle Real is actually three restaurants, all close to the central park. The restaurant a partial block north on 5th Avenue on the left is the main one, nice inside, several eating areas, good service. The one on the left across the street from the first one is where I used to eat, now seems old and... More

Beautiful restaurant just across the road from our hotel, having a peaceful open candle-lit patio with lots of greenery as well as attractive inside dining areas with framed pictures on the walls and lots of antique bits and pieces such as an old cooking range. This was also one of the few places that featured genuine Mayan dishes on the... More

As always I ask the locals where to go for some good local food. Another restaurant owner suggested Fonda de la because I wanted Pepian and Mole de Plantano both he said was excellent at this place. Since it wasn't busy I did get waited on but the older waitress had a problem understanding English even when I pointed it... More

We visited this restaurant in February 2017. We had heard that many famous people had eaten here and it was the place to go for good food in excellent surroundings. Unfortunately it failed to live up to our expectation. The restaurant was busy but it was apparent there were not enough staff on. It took ages to get served and... More
