A large group of us invaded this place, so spacious, we were seated in the large area right at the back of the restaurant as there was more than 40 of us. Most of us ordered the Salmon which was accompanied by mash, we ordered chips so ended up with 2 potatoes based sides. We got to choose our own... More

Best meal we had in Guatemala. Service was good and food was fresh and organic. Hosts went out of their way to please. A little on the pricey side for Guatemala but compared to most of the typically bland food it was worth the extra cost.

We dropped in on a rainy day for a glass of wine. The prices are high, but the atmosphere was special, and the proprietor was friendly. The business is located in an old historic church--amazing ambiance!

A must stop where the menu is great but with the quality of organic ingredients along with phenomenal chefs is impressive even for Antigua. I recommend giving your control over to the house and have them make a memorable evening for you. We have never been disappointed.

What is most notable about this restaurant is the pasta - it is not dried from a box but fresh and made from scratch! As a result the food is very high quality. It is just off the main square so the location is also excellent. It caters to an American/European clientele. We also had the pizza that was delicious.... More

Dinner here was a treat. Who knew you could find such great Italian food in Guatemala? We ordered the arugula salad which was fantastic. Salad was organic, fresh and tasty. We ordered pastas for the main. Pasta is homemade and outstanding. One of us had the pesto sauce and the other the prosciutto, mushrooms and cream. Service was excellent as... More

Small, quaint, homey, convenient – owner always present. Unimpeachable service, food so good you’ll wanna slap yo mama, bathroom so clean you could perform minor surgery in there. Feels more like your attending a small party, hosted by Peter and Carla, than simply going out to eat. Deseo que estaba alli ahora.

Best kept secret outside of Italy. You would never expect food this authentic and tasty in this hidden gem of Antigua. A must visit to anyone craving italien food or just a romantic evening with your special someone. Music was a throw back to all the greats, staff was polite and welcoming. Thx to all the staff of cafe opera... More
