Made the classic traveller's mistake- long day, worn out fell for the convenience and street appeal. He had bland, chewy beef, she had slimy, greasy, chewy chicken. The waiter did not give us the correct change, but by then we just wanted to leave and put it behind us. There are many other, better choices in Antigua. Don't fall for... More

They have very good food, local dishes at a very affordable price. Parking is an issue in that street.

A block north of the square towards the arch is the restaurant El Sabor Del Tiempo. The building is very old and worth a visit to see the building interior. You enter the restaurant through a liquor store with a large selection behind a counter. In the counter is a selection of cigars. They also sell chocolates. It is well... More

My husband and I came in for a nice relaxing dinner pulled in by the inviting atmosphere. We were completely underwhelmed with the food. We ordered olives, Caesar salad and a pizza. The olives were ordinary green and black olives from a can; the salad over dressed and soggy; and the pizza bland. The crust was something I could've made... More

What a wonderful discovery in Antigua. The building is just phenominal. The wine deliciously cool and crisp, the staff charming. Do go up onto the roof and enjoy the 360 views.

The restaurant looks nice but the food is so-so. Grilled piglet + house wine is 125 qtz, Chicken Brest in sauce - 90. I would not go there twice.

We were jet-lagged and weary and just wanted to taste something warm before going to bed. We were so pleased we chose El sabor del tiempo. The decor was welcoming (a converted interior with old furniture, a counter and large bottles, maybe previously an old pharmacy). The waiter recommended Sopa de frijol Blanco (white bean soup). Beans = Central America,... More

The place is really nice, with an incredible atmosphere, but the food, as least what we got, was bad (we ordered tenderloin and mutton), either too much or not enough cooked (speaking Spanish did not help). That was disappointing, and the service was not better.
