We were touring Antigua and our friend took us here. It was a perfect place to stop and have a rooftop bucket of Gallo beer. The views are amazing, lovely breeze. We were there very early in the afternoon, maybe around 3pm, so we did...More

I liked to hit happy hours at this rooftop bar. The food is just so-so, except the french fries are good!

Small place, but nice location. The best item on the menu is the lava burger, which is quite tasty and big. Enjoy the sun and sights from the terrace. The bar is quite good as well.

The food and drinks are awesome, but as is style for Guatemala the drinks are pretty weak but if you ask nicely, they will make your drink 'más fuerte'. The fries and burgers were delicious.

Good place to get burgers and onion rings. The place is a great bar atmosphere. If its raining you can get burgers ordered to ocelot and not even leave your seat.

Food and service was good. What was great was the views! Narrow winding stairs to the terrace were a bit rickety! But once you were there it was worth it. Prices reasonable for the area.

Thank you. It sounds like a concept issue for the most part. We do target a young crowd on the weekends. Where i do feel sorry for you is the service in the day. What a disgraceful way to treat a client. I am furious...More
