Antigua, GT: Las Palmas Restaurante
I dropped by Las Palmas to see if there was more Cuba food on the menu other than tostones. Nope.
It is a pleasant restaurant with a good selection of alcoholic beverages. It had the most extensive list of beers that I’ve seen in Antigua.
Though the website mentions Cuban food, the list of their most popular dishes does not include any Cuban dishes. Some menu items include: Lasagna, cilantro-lime tilapia, sirloin steak with house-made bbq sauce, Guatemalan churrasco.
Desserts include chocolate cake, apple pie, brownies, flan, tropical fruit and chocolate mousse.
Breakfast is served on the weekends.
I only had a Sangria. In this case it meant limonada topped with red wine. Both were nice separately and I enjoyed the mix of the two.
The house wine is Clos de Pirique from Chile. You can order it by the glass or box (1 liter for 90 quetzales or about $11).
In addition to the Guatemalan beers they also have Baltika from Russia, Tsingtao, Becks, Heinikan and a few more.
There’s a list of liquors that includes grappa Tignanelo and Limoncello de Capri
There was a Middle Eastern avocado mousse on the menu that might make a good appetizer to acommpany drinks.
I’ve read that the tablecloths are made from the embroidered part of huipiles, the blouses that Mayan women wear.
It was a pleasant place to linger. They offer WiFi so it might be a good place to use a lap top. I didn’t note electrical outlets however.
They also show movies. The schedule is posted on the door.
