We live in Guatemala City and come to Antigua frequently. IZAKAYA is easily our favourite restaurant. Their food is delicious!! They use only the best quality meet, fish and veggies and prepare it all to perfection. Thank you IZAKAYA, please keep up the great work.

You can tell the chef trained at Nobu! Everything we had here was lovely. It is also a small place so the service is excellent. We ate here twice and both times were fantastic.

Izakaya is a Japanese Sake Establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. Enticing Oriental Appetizers with a tropical twist, creating a fusion between Guatemalan and Asian flavors. Fine cuisine prepared in an open kitchen, by reknown chefs with an international trajectory, which includes Nobu, Zuma & Gordon Ramsay in London. Cozy atmosphere and great music.
