The food and service at Don Rodrigo are superb. The steks are great, the guacamole magnificent. Don´t try the shrimp, it is not their specialty and there are other much better options. The tortillas are hand made in a comal. Haven´t tried so good tortillas in a long time. The night show is very entertaining and the marimba music at... More

We were part of a large group that fit very well into this large and beautiful restaurant. The inside is like an old world Hacienda and the outside gardens are magnificent. We had a wonderful meal served very professionally and efficiently followed by a very pleasant music and dance show featuring peasant dances from various parts of the country. It... More

Every time that I go Antigua a take a few hours to lunch at this nice and tasty place. The warm of its personal and the tasty of their food gets enriched with the garden. Ask for the Plato Chapin of Puyaso and remember to ask for rice with fried bananas...Don´t forget to ask for tortillas!

We had an excellent evening watching Mayan dance displays after enjoying a lovely meal. We eat on an open air balcony and our group were all complementary about their meal choices which were a selection of chicken and steak dishes. Service was great , including for reasons unknown to us a free bucket of local beers.

We went to this restaurant for lunch as part of a shore excursion from Puerto Quetzal. It was a beautiful restaurant in an historic building with lovely gardens and traditional spanish decor. There was live music with traditional dancing during the lunch which was fun to watch and added to the atmosphere. The food was very basic, well prepared and... More

The staff here act as if you're their only customer, the cleaning service is very quick, the accommodations are gorgeous, clean, and comfortable too! If you can afford this place it will not disappoint you. Honestly the price isn't that bad for what you get in return. There is a restaurant with live music some nights right here in the... More

Beautiful old hotel, and the restaurant is lovely. The setting is pure Antigua, with heavy beamed ceilings and live marimba music to accompany a folkloric dance show as we dined. Cozy and romantic, and the food is prepared by people who know food. Guatemalan cuisine is generally unremarkable, and our meal was simple but well seasoned. Particularly the caldo de... More
