Antigua Restaurant in Caracas
An incredible restaurant where the mix of the old world and gourmet food go hand in hand. The decor of Antigua is not an easy task; mixing the latin culture charged with saints, antiques and vivid colors it came out pretty nice this time. The result is a pleasure for the eye, the ambience is elegant with a real cozy feeling from grandam’s home with a twist. I love the bar with religious figures without minding the scale, the vintage mirrors are all over in a way that brings a little light to the dark cozy corners. Every element at Antigua has a story and that’s the beauty of it. What’s best it’s that you get to enjoy this almost theatrical restaurant without the “thrift store” scent. On the contrary, you will be dazzled by the beautifully presented gourmet dishes and their amazing aroma.
The use of the light is very well done. There are plenty of rooms for having a cocktail and feel cozy and private, create by the use of crystal pendant lights;while other parts of the restaurant are filled with natural light for a layback lunch or brunch.
A delicious bakery in case you want to bring home more of the gourmet desserts Antigua offers.
The walls are at the main diner are a theatrical display of old books and antiques.
Other walls display paintings of saint at many sizes as well as empty vintage frames.
You can even bring home some “pasta fresca”.
To make this place even more impressive you can also find palm trees in the inside.
