We came here on our last trip and remembered it fondly so we made a point to return. The food was still great and the service excellent. It is a nice break from the typical Antigua food -- unusual takes on come classic dishes. We also enjoyed the unusual paintings on the wall and the tour of the artwork given... More

I was pleasantly surprised! The restaurant is a cute little place near the Central Park. My cousin and I randomly ran into it as we were searching for dinner one night. I ordered a sandwich and she ordered a pasta dish- they both were really tasty. I would eat here again without a doubt.

We had been wanting to try this restaurant. This is our second winter here and we had gone in and looked a few times. It is a beautiful venue, filled with gorgeous artworks. We ordered the shark tartare and the duck with hibiscus sauce to share. The shark dish had a dark thick sauce on the plate which was supposed... More

I received several complaints about you both, that you were abusive and rude not only to people at neighboring tables, but my also own wife, and I was asked to kick you out, but I did not. Why? Because I was worried about the bad review you would write. I was also warned that you would order the most expensive... More

Hungry on our first night in Antiqua after harrowing car ride from Guat City. Saw some winking lights just off the square so over we went...just a great experience! The front area before and to the side of the bar/kitchen was populated by some very "expat-writer " looking types a la Ernest Hemmingway who gave good reviews of the food!... More

Thank you very much! I'm so glad you liked it, and I'm sorry about the hibiscus margarita. I might've put too much simple syrup in it. Won't happen again! It was a pleasure serving you. Enjoy your stay in Antigua! More

Coffee rum nut would have made it with a good strong coffee flavor. How difficult is coffee? Mysterious.

IcookUnicorns, Owner at Sobremesa, responded to this review

No, what is mysterious is that you would rate a restaurant as average, based on one ice cream you had from a separate business, around the corner. What is mysterious is that you would trash a business online instead of telling the owner to his face. I am so sorry the rum flavor overpowered the coffee flavor and ruined your... More

I do have to apologize for that. The cook who made your pizza is leaving us in two days, at the end of this month, and she does not care about the quality of anything she does. I assure you that this will never happen again, and invite you to come try our pizza the way it is normally, which... More

It is a very attractive restaurant and has the appearance of a wonderful eatery. The owner and waiter were very attentive to our group. The descriptions in the menu were exotic indicative of a gourmet restaurant and experienced chef. Sadly, this was not the case.

How odd. Your group seemed very enthusiastic and complimentary about the food and drinks. It is a shame you did not agree. But I'll tell you how you should say it: to my face, so I can do something to make you happier. From a distance and days afterward is way too late. More

We just had a delicious meal at a most interesting boutique restaurant. It is owned by Alexander Ferrar who is an artist, chef, and author ,with his wife Rita who created the garden patio. Excellent food, service, ambience. Alexander is wonderful to talk to. Helpful if you have questions about Antigua too. And generous with stories about his art if... More

I went to the restaurant for ice cream because I didnt know there was an ice cream shop. The option they had there were limited, but I got to chose the strawberry and pretzels one. IT WAS AMAZING!

Nice spot, offbeat owner, good wine recommendation, impressive pizza... BUT, drinking water not available except if purchased in a plastic bottle. Not my thing, not green, not sustainable. Why leave your customers thirsty? Will happily return to Sobremesa when a glass of drinking water is provided with the meal!

Sir, I understand your concern, but as I told you in person, tap water here is not potable, and every filter I have tried leaves something floating in the water (calcium, magnesium, or clay powder) or a funny taste which other customers do not find agreeable. I have tried many different methods and bottled water is the safest. I am... More
