Nice ambiance, great service, but I wasn't blown away by what I ordered. I had the a blood orange gin cocktail which I think was a little too sweet and might have been tastier using fresh fruit rather than blood orange flavored soda. I also ordered the jalapeño banana pasta, which sounded very interesting but overall left something to be... More

I knew it. I've caught one of my cooks cutting corners on that sauce before and told her never to do it again, but I had a feeling she would continue if my back was turned. I wish you had told me, though, so I could have fixed it. And I have found the drinks are not being made the... More

Our group of 3 friends went here for dinner this evening and had a amazing time. First - the food. The food was particularly delicious because it was more than the sum of it's parts. For example, I had a tenderloin steak in a blackberry chipotle sauce. The sauce on its own was good, the steak was good, but together... More

My girlfriend & I wanted to splash out for a meal & were recommended to come here - we're so glad we did! I had the best steak I've ever had (although it was a new recipe Alex was trying out so unfortunately not on the menu yet) & my girlfriend loved her food as well. We'll definitely go back... More

I was pleasantly surprised when we came across this restaurant in Antigua, Guatemala. Sobremesa is an inviting restaurant and is also an art gallery. http://www.alexferrar.com/ I ordered the Linguini with chicken and I haven't had such an amazing meal of flavor explosions like this in a long time. The prices are comparable to other restaurants nearby, but you can't pass... More

I don't remember las time I ate in such a wonderful restaurant. The Croque Jean Poulet was delicious and the ice cream dessert was the best!

Sobremesa and Hector's fight it out for best food in Antigua in my opinion (the Croque Madame was super tasty). But you won't get a dinner show like this anywhere else. The owner Alex runs his restaurant (and around the corner specialty ice cream shop) well. Everything that we had here was delicious (including an amazing pumpkin cheesecake with a... More

After a delicious breakfast elsewhere,...I passed by 'Sobremesa' and got talking to the American owner...as I was not feeling hungry...but liked the look of the restaurant, I told him I would be back! I returned later on that day to a delicious late lunch. The cuisine is very innovative and most tasty. The service also was most attentive. Whenever I... More
