We just had a delicious meal at a most interesting boutique restaurant. It is owned by Alexander Ferrar who is an artist, chef, and author ,with his wife Rita who created the garden patio. Excellent food, service, ambience. Alexander is wonderful to talk to. Helpful if you have questions about Antigua too. And generous with stories about his art if... More

I went to the restaurant for ice cream because I didnt know there was an ice cream shop. The option they had there were limited, but I got to chose the strawberry and pretzels one. IT WAS AMAZING! I would have never thought of this combination! Next time I´m in Antigua II´ll make sure I´ll go to the ice cream... More

Nice spot, offbeat owner, good wine recommendation, impressive pizza... BUT, drinking water not available except if purchased in a plastic bottle. Not my thing, not green, not sustainable. Why leave your customers thirsty? Will happily return to Sobremesa when a glass of drinking water is provided with the meal!

Sir, I understand your concern, but as I told you in person, tap water here is not potable, and every filter I have tried leaves something floating in the water (calcium, magnesium, or clay powder) or a funny taste which other customers do not find agreeable. I have tried many different methods and bottled water is the safest. I am... More

I have to say I was extremely impressed with pretty much everything about the restaurant. The staff seemed very interested in making sure everything was perfect for our New Years Eve dinner. The food was incredible, sharing a pizza and a pasta dish. The chipotle sauce on the pasta was amazing as well as the extremely fresh and large shrimp... More

Coming from New York, I could easily say that this is the best restaurant I have been to. MUST have their ice cream, and the paintings in the restaurant look gorgeous. The prices are absurdly good, even for two college kids like us, and the host is extremelly friendly and entertaining.

This is actually one of my favourite restaurants in Antigua. We went the 1st time a couple of years ago. The restaurant is located very close to the Central Park in Antigua, probably like 100 ft away. Since a while it got renovated and now there are two rooms for guests. Nevertheless, in total you may have around 10 tables.... More

Thank you very much! I am so glad you said that. Yes, we have grown quite a bit. When we started out we could only seat 14 people and now we seat 60, and I went from only one employee to seven. Of course, the prices of our dishes have gone up because of that. The rent has quadrupled, and... More

We were simply walking around central Antigua without a specific restaurant in mind, but we wanted to find a venue that would offer us local cuisine a cut or three above the usual holes in the walls and we stumbled upon Sobremesa. As we perused the menu in the doorway, the co-owner, Alex, invited us inside and seated us at... More

We ended up here at the advice of Trip Advisor reviewers and it did not disappoint. My 12 year old daughter and I had a lovely meal in the semi covered patio in the back. Comfortable even on a cool night. Our server was friendly and helpful. We had the Caprese, Margherita pizza and ratatouille. Delicious. While pricey, it was... More

Always come away from Sobremesa feeling like a well fed and entertained traveler or for that matter a resident who wondered into a little world of my own choosing, really everything changes as you view the art, chat with the owner Alex, about his latest novel or admire his art hanging right there on the walls,the food is great everything...
