The mixture of Japanese blended with Spain, whatever the mix. This was one of the best dining experiences our "Gourmet Dinner Club" has had during the three years I have been a member. With absolutely nothing but word of mouth and tripadvisor publicity I have...More

The folks who own Izakaya present a nice fusion of the tapas tradition of Latin America and Japan's analogous tradition, robatayaki. Only about fifteen dishes are offered. We shared three, accompanied by Gallo, Guatemala's signature lager. Izakaya's ceviche was really, really good. The base was...More

My sister had been telling to go for a while, so we finally made plans and drove over to Antigua, which is the most amazing colonial city in the world. The restaurant is small and cozy, with an open kitchen right on the entrance. We...More

Delicious asian fusion gastronomy with fresh ingredients and subtle tastes. While reasonably priced given the quality, the portions are a bit small, so it adds up if you take a couple of dishes. Stylish decor. This is a place to go for the culinary experience.

We had an outstanding meal there! In fact, it was our favorite meal in over a month in Guatemala. We love Japanese cuisine and this restaurant produces creative translations of favorite dishes and creates anew! Will go back again when we return to Antigua.

Izakaya is a Japanese Sake Establishment which also serves food to accompany the drinks. Enticing Oriental Appetizers with a tropical twist, creating a fusion between guatemalan and asian flavors. Fine cuisine prepared in an open kitchen, by reknown chefs with an international trajectory, which includes Nobu, Zuma & Gordon Ramsay in London. Cozy atmosphere and great music.
