Good Place for Lunch in Antigua

Hi - we are coming to Guatemala off of a cruiseship. We are doing a ship's tour "Antigua on our own" where the ship provides transportation into Antigua (from Puerto Quetzal - 90 minute drive). I am assuming that we will be left in the "town centre" type of thing for 3.5 hours. Can anyone recommend a good restaurant for lunch? I am allergic to seafood so would need other options. Anything with a view? We leave in two days & I am short on time to finish my research, so any opinions would be greatly appreciated :)

Thanks very much!

I've read many recommendations for Cafe Sky for the views, but I've never eaten there. tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g295366-d160…

Sabe Rico and Cafe Ana are also both great and only a few blocks from the central park.

We've had drinks at the Cafe Sky and the views are indeed fantastic.

Cafe sky is about the only one with a view. But it is bar food. Something elegant.. Cafe Condessa which is right on the park. Avoid Frida's. Meson Panza Verde.. good Guat. food (which isn't spicy-folks think of Mexico). It's probably the best for your category.

If you haven't already left and manage to see this--there are good comida tipica choices in San Felipe, a short tuk-tuk ride from downtown Antigua. There's also a historical cathedral and artisan market. A nice place to spend an hour or so.

Two years ago we spent 5 days in Antigua and tried out as many restaurants as we could. Our favourite was El Sereno with its lovely patio, special "cave seating" and great roof-top views. Food was excellent and reasonable.
