Popped in here for a drink and ended up stopping here to eat. So much more than an Italian. We decided to have the typico the Guatemalan food we were served was excellent and the mojitos were to die for. My Spanish isn't great but we managed to get by. The waitress/barmaid was really good and looked after us really... More

A friend and I stopped here for dinner, as it was close to the hostel and we had gotten in a bit late. The ambiance was very nice, with linen table clothes, candles flickering. The staff were nice and the prices were fair. I had the vegetarian quesadilla which was simple but good. It did not come with beans, which... More

Better not go there while it's full. You may wait forever - especially for the bill and the change. They include 10% service charge - no idea for what.

Visited here Oct 16 on our final night in Antigua. Excellent pizza and pasta and far superior food to one of the more popular 'italian' restaurants we'd visited a few nights earlier. Drinks also fantastic. Would highly recommend - also excellent value for money in Antigua.

This restaurant was recommended by our bus driver who owns the ethical mayan souvenir shop just up the road. The meals were well-priced and the waitress, despite speaking little English, was friendly and welcoming. The food was filling and tasty and the local beer and the included bread was appreciated. After having no wifi for the last 4 days the... More

I had the super burger which was huge and juicy. My BF had the chicken parmesan which was so good he didn't even save me any lol. Service was standard for Guatemala, a bit slow but pleasant. We saw them pull a pizza out of the wood fired pizza whilst we were there and it looked and smelt amazing. We... More

Everytime I eat at El Punto I always love the way they attend, friendly, lovely and smiling staff. From monday to friday they have a Meal of the day and it is worth paying for such a good lunch. My favorite breakfast on the menu is Guate y Punto! If you really want to have a good and affordable lunch,... More

My boyfriend and I decided to have dinner at El Punto, we had visit this place 2 years ago and it was very good, unfortunately it seems there was an ownership change and dinner today was TERRIBLE! We ordered seafood pizza and a mixed pasta plate that included a piece of Lasagna that tasted as bad as it looked. The... More
