“Lovely location and delicious cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Antanos has the luck to be located in one of Atenas' old historic wooden houses. Refurbished and repainted a joyful yellow, the house is gorgeous. Make sure to notice the floor, which is called "mosaico" and are concrete tiles power-pressed with color for their patterns.

The cuisine is delicious here, and the tables are usually all full. Go early! The mammoth-sized watermelon juice is my favorite drink. Best food items include the Asian chicken, the Monterrey chicken, sea bass - both garlic and also breaded, the fajitas and the traditional plate called a "casado."

Love your coffee? Ask for the big mug and you'll be there at least an hour sipping blissfully!

“Only average food in a cute house in Atenas”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

This was second time at Antanos and unfortunately it has not improved. It was okay the first time but this time it went down a couple more notches. I ordered a glass of Cabernet wine and it was very warm and tasted like it had been open a couple days. The fried fish plate was overlooked. Fish was dry and slightly burnt. Another person in the group had a different plate that included fish and it was also dry and overlooked. The hamburger was not up to par with other burgers in town. They need to improve the quality of their food and find a chef. Also do a better job storing the wine.
