Our Story

Welcome To Bistrot CinQ

Bistrot Cinq opened its doors on November 16, 2007. It’s the vision of renowned American Chef, Robbin Haas. Inspired by the bistros he visited during his trips to France, Robbin created the atmosphere of a typical “French Bistrot” in the heart of Antigua, Guatemala.

The Bistrot Cinq is a cozy restaurant, where you can kick back and relax, knowing we’ll do everything we can to take good care of you and help you feel at home. We’re a place full of stories, joy and a lot of life, where the beauty of Antigua, Guatemala is mixed with the inspiring charm of Paris.

Bistrot Cinq specializes in creating culinary experiences that exceed the expectations of everyone who visits us.

We’re proud to continue being one of the best destinations in Antigua, to enjoy a delicious meal, a good bottle of wine, explore the mysteries of absinthe or spend an unforgettable moment in great company.

This has been on a standout on my list of Antigua restaurants for a couple of years now. I've yet to be disappointed. The food is inventive, the service is good, it's well-located a couple of blocks from the plaza, and you simply cannot go wrong. I've been there alone, with family, and with friends and I'm confident every time I take someone there that they'll be happy.

We once again were thrilled with our delicious meal and incredible service by Marlon and company. We first visited 10 years ago, and are happy to say many of the same people are still there. Everyone works very well together, to create a memorable meal, by providing warm and genuine service. We loved the talented accordion player and had to remind ourselves we were in Antiqua and not Paris. Thank you to Marlon and his colleagues for such a lovely dining experience!

Nunca falla! El servicio siempre es impecable, todo el personal es súper preparado y amigable. La comida... sensacional! Desde la mantequilla hasta el key lime pie (mi favorito), son sabores deliciosamente combinados, y texturas cremosas con productos de calidad. No necesitan nombres de platillos o técnicas ultra refinadas porque se centran en la simpleza de los productos y el conocimiento de prepararlos bien.
