Description

The first part of this trip makes the most of a relaxed sunset view point at Altamira, a sleepy town on the hills overlooking Antigua City and its volcanoes. We’ll take our private transfer, up the windy roads, to the lookout point (about 20 mins away), widely recognised on Instagram for large wooden hands jutting into the clouds. The area includes a unique sculpture trail and walk through local gardens. For those who want to relax a bit more, then there’s time to sit, have a drink in one of the bars (if we arrive in time) and soak in the view…

Then for the main event… Montagu. Back in Antigua, this is a restaurant and experimental kitchen, not open to the public. Owned by Andres, he’s making a name for himself in Antigua for his passion for fermentation and combining unusual ingredients. We’ll have the restaurant to ourselves, or sometimes smaller groups and you’ll be able to see your dinner being cooked in front of you. Not only that, there’s a cocktail bar stocked & ready for your requests, using Andres’ homemade ingredients and vinegar elixirs.

For dinner you’ll be served up first a selection of Andres’ pickles, preserves and fresh bread. And then traditional tacos, but with less traditional fillings such pulled pork & pineapple, bacon and shrimp and pickled egg-plant & avocado. We can assure you that you’ll not leave hungry. In fact, it's more likely you’ll leave with leftovers for the next day AND arms full of preserves, homemade pasta and sauces.

Who this experience is good for

- Any one who wants to enjoy a relaxed view point and community style dinner
- One of the most relaxed and favourite events for nature and food lovers

Little disappointing and not a sunset.

The concept behind it is cool, especially from a local perspective, but when travelers are there it’s just content. Unfortunately our group arrived after sunset and everything was pitch black and there were no views. Dinner was great though.

If it’s views & food, I’m in.

Altamira is stunning even after a rainy day, The way to get in is intriguing at least until they complete it but even still if it was left the way it is, it’s a fun experience. Altamira is very local, it’s an ongoing 6 year project and I could come back once a week. Dinner at Montagu after was private and great for interactions. Food & drinks, delish!

Great views and best food experience in Antigua

Altamira was a great experience. I'm glad it was arranged for the group. It was very fun to share the experience of the views, and the steps and thc colorful and creative photo spots along the way. Montagu is a hidden gem. The owners are truly culinary experts and artists.

Taco Boy Loves Tacos, and these are right on up there.

Taco Boy love Tacos. All tacos good. These tacos better than good. These tacos delicious. I miss these tacos.

For real, this is just a really fun evening seeing some jaw-dropping scenery, the strange inner workings of the mind of a mountain troll/artist, and a great time to hang with the crew.
