We just about didn't eat here because of the cost. After paying 20-30q for breakfast, 55q was a big jump but worth it. First off, the owners have preserved the buildings but added amazing little gardens with chirping birds. Everything is 100% natural with no chemicals and you can really notice the difference in the taste. Lots of gluten free... More

The food here is fresh and made with organic ingredients but I found the menu very confusing. I can recommend the red wine smoothies. This place would be great foe an intimate get-together.

When you see the front door you would not think much of it, but do come inside it is worth it. At the entrance there is a small shop that sells local products and organic stuff. But if you go a little further you will find beautiful gardens where you can have a nice meal in a quiet and peaceful... More

This was my favorite restaurant for breakfast & lunch in all of Antigua. You enter from the street to a courtyard paradise. The further you walk the more courtyard rooms that you get to choose from. The lush plants, songbirds, umbrellas, and tablecloths all unite to create a quaint & lovely setting. I ordered the Dasayuno Figquero (farmer's breakfast) on... More

I don't know what else to say but: Horrible Service, mediocre food, high prices. After I told them I was allergic to nuts they gave me food with nuts. My order wasn't correctly taken. We were overcharged. My meat was overcooked despite asking for medium done. Overall, a poor experience. I will say that it has a beautiful garden and... More

It's an interesting place with all the plants and nature that surrounds that tables. The food was good and varied., but nothing special. We enjoyed the fresh fruit juices, specially the rosa de jamaica (hibiscus) which was very refreshing.

I've been to the restaurant a few times and although the quality varies from very good to just OK, the gardens and privacy are a big plus.

Nice outdoor seating area. We had a couple sandwiches which were pretty good (Rueben and a grilled veggie one). My kids got the pizza which was absolutely terrible. Like melted cheese on a piece of cardboard. In all the other food was good enough not to give a really bad review, but serving that pizza is bad business. It should... More
