4 Restaurants of Antigua Guatemala for Families

There are many things to do in Antigua Guatemala, it might be a tiny city, but it is filled with a lot of culture & history. It is also a place filled with great restaurants & bars for all tastes & budgets. I have made it my task to explore the many restaurants it offers.

Learn why Antigua is not a place you can ignore when you visit Guatemala.

Here are some that have been approved by my family so far:

1. Cafe de la Escalonia – The first time I visited this restaurant I fell in love with it. The tables are in the middle of a beautiful garden. It is located in what used to be a coffee farm. But it’s not just a restaurant, in it you will find books, ornamental plants & local handcrafts for sale. This is also one of the favorite restaurants of my son because he gets to run around as we wait for our food.


2. Chateau DeFay – This is the first and only vineyard of Guatemala. Here you can take a tour along the vineyard, spend some time playing mini golf or eating at their small restaurant. Before you go home you might even want to buy some of the cheese or wine that they offer. It is located 10 min away from Antigua in a tiny, old, indigenous town.


3. Gaia – Gaia is a beautiful Mediterranean style restaurant where they serve delicious food. You can come here for lunch, dinner and for some drinks with friends at night. You will find it in one of Antigua’s most popular streets: Calle del Arco just half block away from the arc.

4. Cafe Condesa – This is a restaurant located in what used to be a house back when families had 10 or 12 children. You will find it right on the Central Park. It is known among locals as the place where you can have the best coffee in Antigua, I think it is great! The entrance is a book store with some great options. Then you get to a beautiful garden, if you keep on walking you will find 3 more rooms with tables for you to choose from.
