La Fonda de la Calle Real: "Don't Miss the Caldo Real!" Antigua Guatemala Restaurant Tip by AlwaysATraveler

Antigua Guatemala Restaurants: 102 reviews and 127 photos

We loved this restaurant so much that we went twice which we never do on vacation. There are 3 locations. The fanciest in on 3a Calle Poniente 7. Bill Clinton dined here when on his 1999 Antigua visit.

Favorite Dish: We flipped over the Caldo Real, which I ordered, and I will attempt to replicate at home. It is a simple chicken and rice soup made with lots of cilantro. Dee had the "Bill Clinton" which consisted of chicken, loganiza, chorizo, and steak. On our second visit we both had the Caldo Real.
