Address: 4 Avenida Sur #4, Antigua Guatemala 03001, Guatemala

Facebook: Guat-ik Bistro

Located just a stone’s throw from the central square, Guatik is a restaurant offering a refined menu with a twist on local flavors. Guatemalan dishes are mixed with Asian flavors, all in a colorful decor. An ideal place to eat well, and try a gastronomy that’s a little different from the classic local « comedors ».

2. La Pasta Nostra

Address: 6a Calle Poniente 18, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala

Facebook: La Pasta Nostra

La Pasta Nostra is an Italian restaurant, as you’d expect, with a superb little sheltered terrace that’s a lot of fun after dark. The pasta is excellent, and you can also eat one of the best burratas in the country (if not THE best!). The prices are right and the atmosphere very warm.

Food lovers, welcome! Mesón Panza Verde is Antigua’s most exclusive restaurant. Located within the hotel of the same name, it offers a highly appreciated upscale experience. It’s the ideal place to discover or rediscover improved Guatemalan classics, but also flavors from elsewhere, notably France, thanks to the chef, who is also French!

4. Queso y Vino

Address: 1- Calle Poniente No. 1, Antigua Guatemala

Facebook: Quesos Y Vino

The large terrace and intimate setting of each table, set far apart from one another, make for a unique experience. At Queso y Vino, the chef is Italian and offers a selection of tasty pizzas to die for. The dough is very thin, but the portions are extremely generous!

We end this culinary journey with a well-known Antiguan address. Samsara is THE vegan restaurant in town, and the food is so good that it’s never full! It’s open early in the morning for hearty breakfasts, as well as for lunch and dinner. The menu includes excellent natural juices, dishes based on tofu, quinoa and fresh vegetables. All for a very reasonable price and a cozy atmosphere to match!

As you can see, Antigua is full of great places to eat, each as original as the next. There’s something for every budget and taste! For a 100% local experience, don’t hesitate to step through the door of a comedor, to try out Guatemalan breakfasts and dishes: red beans, tortillas, ripe avocados, eggs, and portions that will fill your stomach for the day!
