About Us

Founded in 1984 in Antigua Guatemala by Monika Grave (from Germany) .

Welten Restaurant was founded in 1984 in Antigua Guatemala, fulfilling the long term dream of Monika Grave, a German architect with a passion for food who had fallen in love at first sight with Guatemala.

Traditionally in Antigua at this time, businesses and other establishments were endowed with the Spanish, family names of their proprietors. Monika in turn gave her restaurant her grandmother’s surname; “Welten” (also meaning ‘worlds’ in German) thereby both keeping with this tradition and simultaneously alluding to the “international” character of her restaurant’s cuisine.

Since then, Welten has earned an excellent reputation here in Antigua Guatemala; not only for our famous dishes, but also the personal attention with which they are served, and magical ambience of the restaurant.

Following the success of the November 2003 Jazz Festival in Antigua, Welten shall once again be presenting live music! For more information, please visit LIVE MUSIC section of our web site.

There are so many other tales; - of toasts, reunions and celebrations and we invite you to come and create some of our own memories in one of the most authentic corners of Antigua.

Our Staff

From the very beginning, Monika Grave was eager to train a team of Antiguans for her kitchen.

“I needed women capable of preparing both European as well as central American and Caribbean dishes. I soon discovered that the Guatemalans not only quickly mastered these recipes but moreover were keen to innovate, introducing new flavors and tastes. They have since constituted the very heart of Welten”.

Our team of chefs is composed of 10 women who work in pairs in 5 culinary departments; soups and warm starters, cold dishes, desserts and salads, meats and seafood, fish and ceviches and last but not least our homemade pastas and breads.

Linking these efforts with our customers is the warm and personal service of our waiters, who look forward to welcoming you.

Today, Monika’s dream continues to be fulfilled by our current manager, who had been her right hand since the early years.

"Our goal is to serve you with the best cook and a great service"
