This is my favorite restaurant. Consistently good food, and helps us stay on budget. Elder is a very friendly and accomodating waiter and I receive a warm welcome from him. The portions are great for the dollar (even for an American)

During my stay in Antigua I ate quite some times in La Vieja Cocina. What I tried was very tasty and you got it for a very good price too (Menu of the day including a drink was 30GTQ, burger with fries and a drink also 30GTQ). Staff was very friendly.

This place is purely local. Good food, economical prices and good Latin Music and spontaneous salsa dancing(even if you can't). It's a safe atmosphere to experience the local bar scene where English is not spoken but wanders are always welcome. Enjoy
