Siitz' - The Mayan way to say delight

Siitz', gourmet restaurante in Antigua GuatemalaDespite the fierce competition, the number of restaurants in Antigua is on a constant rise. According to Tripadvisor the colonial city counts close to 240 gastronomic establishments. An unbelievable density, considering the city's extension of just eight by eight blocks. Those who aim for a piece of the pie, especially a succulent one of the weekend business, do well to stimulate their creativity and dynamize their offerings, if they intend to emerge from the mass.

A restaurant that's starting to catch our attention in this respect is Elú, better known as Elú de El Convento Boutique Hotel. Apart from the welcoming and cozy ambiance, it stands out for its management's admirable originality when it comes to organizing culinary activities. Carmen Ochoa, hotel manager, and Miguel Abac, maitre of the restaurant, emphasized in a recent interview that it's all part of a well-devised strategy, aimed at the upcoming relaunch of the restaurant under it original name Siitz'. In Mayan language the name means "delight" or "delicacy" and that eloquently describes the vocation of the restaurant. Read on to find out what Siitz' is all about.
