    Even at a small table, it was very difficult to have a conversation, with the music level so high. On the plus side ,Our server was great, very attentive. The food was just alright. Small place and I like that. First time there, might go back and give the food a second chance.

    It's a bit of a drive from our house but when in the area we'll go to Antigua. This time we had the "date night 3 course special". The food was very good and the service great. There was a combo just starting to play when we had to leave to make our theater time. We'll be back.

  • A Nice Find
    pcb1107
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    Found this on OT. Not sure what to expect - found a nice restaurant, focused on quality food, with a twist, coming from Latin cultures (Spain, Argentina, Peru, Brazil, and yes Mexico). Much different than the standard Mexican fare, well prepared and very tasty. It was not busy the night we were there and if it was, may have been a bit on the noisy side as there are high meta ceilings and a hard stone floor. Nice decor, and tables are not jammed together. We loved it and will be back.

    This latin restaurant is wonderful. not just usual Mexican food but all kinds os Latin food, you get to try different dishes than you would at other places. They are willing to make our favorite dish even though it is no longer opn the menu. Only once were we disapointed. we had a dish that said tender beef tenderloin , it was not at all tender it was tough. I would not order that again. Everything else has been very good.

    We had eaten there a year ago on Mother's Day and the food was marvelous. This year, they had a buffet and wouldn't let us order off the menu. They had four kinds of shredded meat, rice, potatoes, black beans and store bought cookies for dessert. When the bill came I almost lost it $29.95 per person! I will give them one more chance with their regular menu, but will not go back for a so-called "Holiday" buffet!

    We had reservations at 6pm and as usual like to sit at the bar for our first drink but no chairs at the bar and it was quite small - nice for a quiet, good meal - nothing special but a latin place to try - not bad - maybe depends on what you order

Even the most fussiest of customers would agree! We were pleasantly surprised when the bill came and will definitely be back for more. Thank you,

    The atmosphere is colorful and cozy with energetic music and laughter filling the air! It is a great place to meet up with a few friends or share a playfully romantic dinner. The food is outstanding and I highly recommend the Sun Dried Tomato & Roasted Pumpkin Seed Guacamole, Ceviche, Mole Poblano, and Steak Ranchero! A glass of one of their three refreshingly fruity Sangrias is a must! ¡Salud!

    Not impressed with food! One table to watch and our waiter ignored us. Had to ask two times to have waters refilled and never asked if we wanted another drink. Food was just okay. Might try when it's not Sunday "brunch" time. Very limited menu at 1:00 in the afternoon... Arrive on Sundays after 2:00, you might have better food and service!! Quiet place because no one was there...we should have known better when we got there and only one other table with customers.

    Love this place and look forward to dining here again. I went along with my date and ordered Paella (seafood). We celebrated Valentine's Day. The meal was delicious. For dessert we had a chocolate raspberry mousse. Yum. Prices are reasonable and ambiance is perfect for a small group or couple.

    The menu combines extraordinary dishes from several Latin American cultures. The management has taken care to bring the Latin flavor to the décor and quality is evident in every detail. Touches like fresh flowers (in winter) and table linens make this a colorful and tasteful escape from the gray city. I enjoyed the empanditas and black bean soup with crunchy onions. The bread was very fresh, toasted perfectly on one side so it was both crunchy and soft, and served with an aioli that I would dearly love to have the recipe for!

    Not my 1st visit to Antigua, but, once again, an extremely satisfying experience. OUTSTANDING service, the kind I iike, where they keep an eye on you, but don't interfere or hand around. That service is what I've experienced, every time. The food? Terrific! This is not a low-cost-quick-taco hit. Instead, Antigua features "latin" food, with choices from Argentina, old Mayan recipes and great Spanish dishes. As for dessert, try anything. The flan is unlike any flan I've ever had; the cake fashioined to replecate the Mexican flag is to die for. GO! ENJOY!

    I really enjoy the different dishes from different countries offered here. My wife and I have been here several times and try new dishes each time. All have been excellent. The last dish was a stuffed pepper with a walnut sauce and pomegranate seeds... wow! The chicken soup (I won't attempt it's name) is sincerely a MUST! The flan is really good, too. Parking lot is kinda tiny. Allow a little time; they're not trying to rush you out. Be adventurous and enjoy.

    I received a certificate for a birthday present and it was by far one of the best restaurants I have ever been to! The food was wonderfully delicious! I have been blessed to have been able to travel throughout Latin America, and I was so happy to get to taste pupusas and pisco again! If I lived closer, I would surely visit more often. I will however recommend this place to everyone I know in the area!

    The place has a caribbean feel. I had the bacon-wrapped shrimp, which was good. Although it was supposed to have shrimp stuffed with cheese, I could not see or taste any cheese. The included salad had a dressing that had a funky dressing, so I only ate half of it. We ordered dessert. My friend had flan, which was good. I had a lemon tart, which was just okay. The service was great.

    Great Sangria, good wine, good meal, but nothing spectacular. We enjoyed the paella for two, but it was a little heavy on the rice and light on the fish. The flan that had "won awards" was more of a cheesecake, and not true egg custard flan.

    Dined on 11/1/2013
    The one thing I have to say I enjoyed about Antigua was the Blackberry Raspberry Sangria. It honestly was the best Sangria I've ever had in my life. The bread we received was stale and the dip that came with it was bizarre. My husband expected something spicy and it had no spice whatsoever. I can't do spicy at all and I could eat it. I've wanted to try Antigua for quite a while as I've driven passed it a hundred times. I'm bummed that it wasn't better as I used my gift cheque on it and didn't leave super happy. It was quite busy and the host wasn't ready with our reservation. We were lucky someone had just left a small 2 person table as we were able to obtain it. I won't be returning.

    Antigua offers a lively, interesting menu; regular offerings of 'special' cuisines; and great neighborhood ambiance. It's an off the beaten path gem - definitely worth seeking out. Prices are affordable; food is sensational -- and service is attentive (challenged only on a crowded Saturday night like the one we visited.) Totally recommended!
