My husband and I have dinner at Sobremesa every time we travel to Antigua. This was probably our 5th or 6th time to dine here and it is always delicious! The service is excellent and the owner makes himself available for recommendations and/or questions. The filet with blackberry chipotle sauce is to die for if you like a little spice!... More

We liked the decor very much and the service too. The pizza is comparable to many others and I suppose its hard to differntiate yourself with so many others in Antigua offering pizza. If the price/vallue was better than the pack I would have rated Sobremesa 4 stars.

I think what happened is you got served one of our gluten-free pizzas by mistake. We make the bases in the morning and store them next to the regular ones. While they are good bases and very popular with people who cannot eat gluten, they are not as good as the others. I invite you to come back and try... More

Without a doubt, my top meal since I have been in Antigua for the last month. The menu is imaginative and tastebud popping. It was hard to decide which choice to make, they all sounded fantastic! I choose the Blackberry chipotle - a hearty steak the most amazingly created sauce, mildly spicy but yet so full of flavour. I ate... More

A good pasta dish is my personal favorite meal, and Alex's Linguini al Terrance does not disappoint. The homemade linguini, in a creamy sauce of tomato confit and goat cheese, with thyme makes a perfect meal, especially when paired with a delicious grilled chicken breast. There is something about the sauce that is mysteriously addictive...I find myself returning again and... More

Ma'am, it is always a pleasure to see you and I am always flattered that you almost always order the same dish. We have several other guests that come often and have the same linguini, and it makes me very proud. Thank you very much for your kind words, and we look forward to seeing you in December! More

Night 2 of the stay in Antigua and had to try another restaurant of my recommended list bit more of a trek to this one but it was well worth it! I had the steak with a blackberrry reduction and my taste buds were tingling from the first to the last mouthful. The service was excellent with the host taking... More

This fabulous restaurant deserves every one of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We went here for dinner one night, and were charmed by the amazing art, the eclectic atmosphere, and the wonderful food. I had the beef, and it was cooked beautifully. The sauce with it was the perfect compliment, and the veggies were delicious. Definitely seemed like part... More

Pros. Nice ambiance Great service. Nice art throughout the restaurant. Cons. Food quality average. My steak was under-done and just ok quality. Wine selection very limited. Not a terrible dining experience but for the price expected better. Wouldn't really recommend it. There's better places in Antigua.

Thank you for the Pros. About your steak, I'm sorry. All you had to do was say that it was underdone when we asked you how it was, and we would have fixed it. Since everyone has said their food was excellent recently, I do not know when you might have eaten here. And we have 37 different wines. More

We really enjoyed our meal at Sobremesa. We would have eaten there again if my wife didn't have a "no repeat" policy on restaurants during vacations. Alex, the owner and chef, is multi-talented. He has written multiple novels and also paints. The art in the restaurant consists of all originals. He is very creative with local ingredients and spices. Definitely... More

Alex, who runs the place with his wife, is a visionary in the kitchen and always creates interesting flavor combinations. Married to a Guatemalan, you can see the influence of both his world travels and his Guatemala life in the food. The entrees - including the steak with blackberry sauce - are always amazing, and so are the pizzas. As... More
