Antigua, GT: Angie, Angie
This is a great new restaurant in Antigua, Guatemala. I believe they have only been open a few months and they are located by Cafe No Se and Cafe Sky. We had read a couple good reviews and so decided to check this new place out. We were very happy we did! Our server was delightful and was happy to switch to English when we didn't understand something. The prices were very reasonable as this menu shows (only in Spanish):
Some of us got the homemade spinach raviolis. I tried the ones with a blue cheese sauce and my friend the pesto. We were both very happy. Another friend ordered the gnocchi and she did think they were too heavy but that was the only disappointing meal of the evening. My husband ordered the roasted chicken which he devoured. My other friend got the Argentinian ribs and, although the cut of the meat was different than what he was used to, he did say that they were delicious. Another friend ordered the huge salad with grilled grapes and goat cheese and it was absolutely beautiful. So beautiful that I immediately ordered one when our server came back.
The restaurant definitely has a bohemian atmosphere with a huge patio in the back. The tables were plastic but decorated with some textiles to make up for it. The garden didn't compare to some of the others we sat in but we were happy to be outside eating dinner in February so we were content.
Here are some photos:
Seriously, God bless you, for not only trying recommended restaurants, but stepping into a place no one else tried. I have Angie, Angie on my list to try. Delicious looking dishes.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR REPORTING BACK !!!
This is such a help to others planning a trip to the area. I apprieciate all the comments about the places we both like such as Hector's, Sabe Rico, Dona Gavi, Bistro Cinc as that is a back up about the great food there.
However, I appreceiate even more the reprots on the places where our tastes differ, Chocola La LA, La Cuevita and Chocolarti. It gives a more balanced view to others making a decision about where to eat.
Thanks personally on the info about the food at the Vivero, as I didn't have much there and will probably skip making a trip back. Still worth it for the flowers.
I'm glad you liked Pangea. There are a few restaurants I liked a lot but haven't got around to reporting about yet, becuase I wanted to gie them a little more thoughtful posts. Pagea was one of them. I'll try to add to your post soon. Chef Neil is somewhat of a trip. A really nice young guy.
Glad Monoloco worked out for you. I thought of you on Super Bowl Sunday at a restaurant in Cocoles that is on the way to Lake Atitlan. They had the Super Bowl on and even a special snack menu for the game .... but no one in the restaurant was interested.
Nice reports. Thanks again..
