Guatemala: Restaurants, street food and more

Looking through the posts to date here are the restaurants I gleaned. Some have recommended dishes, some just a positive mention. Most have been mentioned in the last few years, some further out so no guarantee those might be open. I hope people will note any closings

I put each city in its own reply so that anyone wanting to add can zone in on the city of choice.

If more than one person commented about a place I added the number of comments next to the restaurant name … (3), for example

My one comment is that for all the people asking info and promising to report back, few did. It really does help other Chowhounds to do a follow up and keep info as fresh as possible.

I also have a reply with all the Chowhound Guatemala links

This thread also contains some recommendations from the website AntiguaDailyPhoto.

I also added some Lonely Planet links. Maybe it will help people recall the names of restaurants they tried.

In the future, if Central America and the Caribbean gets its own board instead of being lumped with a whole different continent, this one thread will be easier to move over there.

I did this mainly for me for when I get out and about. I have a feeling that as usual, I’ll be heading to a place on the list, get the siren call somewhere else and never get to my original destination.

Oddly enough one place that is calling out to me in Antigua is a joint called Mona Lisa that serves Mayan Lasagna done with cacao sauce. That just sounds interesting.
