“Good food and a truly local connection.”
Review of La Canche

La Canche
Ranked #117 of 391 Restaurants in Antigua
Cuisines: Guatemalan
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Although the food can be somewhat cold and slightly overpriced from what you would pay at the market, La Canche is a must for a local connection. With expat run businesses abounding in Antigua, finding a local owner, especially one that has been here her entire life is precious. I am a Guatemalan and can tell you her dishes are authentic and tasty and having a meal in her "trastienda" felt like visiting my great grandmother on Sundays for a tasty meal in her large kitchen.

if your are a bagpack traveler you must stop by here for the lunch or dinner. the owner is an old women with no age, the food is tipical, well served and tasty (no need to have a strong stomack) the place needs some refreshing but it is also part of its asset. defemitely cheap you will love this apart from the touristic place fonda.

This place is just across from the La Merced church a real hole in the wall. The home cooking was excellant, it cost us 45Q each with drinks. A great place to get a good home cooked Guatemalan meal.Great value for the money.

The address is incomplete, so it just sends you to where the street changes from North to South, which is about 2 blocks south of where the restaurant is. You have to go through a small tienda to enter the restaurant.
The food is simple, but excellent, the family is incredibly welcoming, and the price is right.

This place is great. Cheap, and the food is delicious. It's an awesome atmosphere to sit and watch the women prepare the meals, and get to enjoy home cooked food.
