Enjoyed my food immensely..Had shrimp stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon and it was out of this world. Had a little mustard spice sauce and oh was it good. My margarita on the rocks was great. Drinks are a bit pricey but it was so worth it. Definitely going again next time in town!

Antigua has food from all over Latin America - Mexico, Cuba, Ecuador, Argentina and more. I have eaten here a couple of times and the service has always been very good. I have eaten both the Cuban beef and the Ecuadorian shrimp - both were very good. The shrimp were big, tasty and there were lots of them. The cocktails... More

I had a confirmed printed copy of my reservation at this restaurant through Open Table but the restaurant claimed they did not have it in their system and so they refused to seat us or offer any other accomodations.

Very tasty food, nice atmosphere, and good service. My wife, who is fussy about where she dines, says she wants to go back.

Went with another couple who chose this restaurant for our theatre night. Everything was excellent and waiter was helpful in choosing something not too spicey. I had Ropa Viega (shredded beef), my husband had Antiqua Tequila Cream Chicken. Others had Mole Poblano and some tapas. We had blackberry Sangria with our meal.

Drove down from Saint Germain to attend the sport show at State Fair Park. Milwaukee is a great city and has many smaller family run neighborhood restaurants. This was our first experience at Antigua and we are looking forward to many more. They really live up to the positive reviews. A somewhat contemporary room that was warm and inviting. Classy...

We heard from friends about Antigua and decided to eat there this week. The quiet, relaxing ambience allowed our table to easily hear each other and enjoy conversation, much unlike the chain restaurants and wine bars. We where greeted by friendly staff and had a wonderful waitress who could give recommendations for those that were undecided by the many choices... More

We thought we were going to a Mexican restaurant. When we arrived for lunch and started looking at the menu, most of the entrees were not "Mexican" but were Cuban, Central or South American dishes. Not that we're complaining! We tried the Ropa Vieja and Cuban pork. Contrary to one of the other reviewers statements, the Cuban pork was shredded,... More

We have eaten at Antigua several times over the past year and we keep going back. I try a new entrée every time I go and have never had a bad meal there. The entrees are refreshingly different than the standard Mexican faire, featuring sauces and spices with an exotic flair. I recommend the Ropa Vieja, a Cuban dish with... More
