We ate here twice during our week stay in Antigua. The first night was rainy, but it did not prevent us from having a nice dinner inside the house in a room with a fireplace lit! The fish with mango was amazing. We also enjoyed garbanzo soup. Daiquiris on the house! The second time was just for dessert before our... More

Welten is definitely the most romantic restaurant in a very romantic town! The restaurant provides an amazing space and ambiance for a lovely evening. It has been described by some as the best restaurant in Guatemala. I will give top billing to this restaurant even though the actual meal I had was less than perfect. The service was stellar and...

5 Stars all the way. One of the most beautiful restaurants we have visited with rose pedals and candles afloat in the pool. International menu and we both had steaks and sides. Delicious!!! Superb service and prices reflect the 5 star dining experience.

We were referred to this restaurant by the front desk person at our hotel, as being one of just a few places that were open for Xmas eve dinner. Our server was very nice, and I got to practice my Spanish with him. We started with the ceviche appetizer, which was just o.k. (we had better in other places in... More

Welsen looks small from the outside, but it extends way back, and is actually big enough for very large groups. Spacious, comfortable dining area with a canopy overhead lets you enjoy the mild weather but stay 'protected.' I didn't have a big meal - just an eggplant parmiagania and an alcoholic drink. It was not 'memorable,' but definitely well prepared... More

The atmosphere of this place is great, you can choose your seating options depending on your mood, inside, covered patio or outside. We choose the covered patio seating which was very comfortable and nicely decorated. I had the beef tenderloin with fried potatoes, my friend had the fish with steamed potatoes. The fish had heavy butter and garlic, the beef... More

The food and wine was good, as was the atmosphere. It is great for a party. The food was somewhat Italian.
