From in front of Café Rainbow on the cobblestoned 7a. Avenida Sur, with its unobstructed view of Volcán de Agua, and beneath the carved wooden signboard of this restaurant, bar and bookshop, I would step into an establishment whose character embodies that of La Antigua...More

Founded in 1992 Rainbow offers a delicious selection of international and local food made with fresh ingredients(some of them organic)at really good prices in a great atmosphere. Since the opening of the restaurant, we've been hosting live music every night which started with our now very famous Open Mic Night (Wednesdays at 8pm).Hope to see you around!
