Fodor's Review

An old Antigua favorite, this place has three locations serving the same Guatemalan and Mexican fare. The original restaurant, on 5 Avenida Norte near Parque Central, has pleasant views from the second floor. It tends to be a bit cramped, however. Newer spaces, across the street and around the corner on 3 Calle, are in colonial homes spacious enough to offer indoor and outdoor seating. Musicians stroll about on weekends. The menu includes queso fundido and the restaurant's

famous caldo real (a hearty chicken soup).

I eat there every year!!!

I visit Antigua once a year and visiting the restaurant is a MUST for me. On Sundays they usually have a "band" playing, including the miramba! Try the "little bit of everything", or the grilled tomato (my veggen friend's favorite). I tried the fish this year (just returned Sat to NY) and it was not bad either.

For "Typical" Guatemalan Food--You Must Eat Here

La Fonda de la Calle Real (remember the exact name because imitations exist) now has 3 branches in Antigua. They are all cute. They serve "typical" Guatemalan dishes--thus, a must for any traveler. Their recent claim to fame is that former President Clinton ate here. I don't know if he liked the food or not, but I loved it, especially the hearty chicken soup.
