We found this place by accident and had breakfast and dinner on two separate occasions. They understood my needs and the food was very nice. The owner was very friendly and helpful as well.

La Pena de Sol has a broad menu of good Mexican/Guatemalan food. We especially enjoyed the chicken fajitas. Their prices are competitive with others serving similar food. Service could be better. I liked the ambiance .

Looking for more than just a meal, head to La Pena. Nightly musicians (usually) provide for a great evening. Food is excellent.

We have been here several time, but not for a while. We immediately noticed that there were changes, so we were a bit leery of the food and service. Well, we shouldn't have been, because both were fantastic. We all ordered something to share from the appetizer section, and them all got the warm brownie dessert. The highlight of the... More

We have been here many times and have found the food and ambiance to be very good. The typical latino menu is quite large and there are choices for everyone. Service is always good. The music is fantastic.

Since owners Bill and Mary have left it has lost all of its unique andian music entertainment and atmosphere. We where very disappointed since this is a regular destination each year that we are in Antiguain the pastwe would give it excellent ratings in alall categories.

Cozy atmosphere and good service. The chicken skewers were excellent, and so was everything else our table ordered. They even have karaoke.

Knowing that those amazing owners have been pushed out, I see no reason to ever come here again. They were hugely what made this place special. I hope them the best. Now it is just ruined.

We stopped by for a drink and to listen to some music. The atmosphere was very relaxing and we enjoyed listening to a local musician singing and playing a guitar. We were shown the new menu coming out this week and it looks very appealing. This is a nice restaurant to relax in and to enjoy your evening.
