“Good dishes spoiled by lack of kitchen skill”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

We had a lovely table. The staff were welcoming and helpful. We ordered from an extensive menu, and because the place was quiet there was no reason for mistakes.
An amuse-bouche of almond soup was refreshing. My wife's starter of tempura vegetables was well cooked but lacked imagination. My partridge "risotto" starter was over salted and the quarter partridge left on the bone - as much as I like picking a bone this was not the time and the cooked meat could easily have been removed in preparation. In contrast, my rack of lamb was under-seasoned but served with a tasty cheese crust. I would have liked more of the sauce it stood on. But attractive parcels of spinach wrapped in carrot strips were ruined by large chunks of bitter uncooked garlic. My wife chose slow-cooked suckling pig which was served with black pasta ribbons, cold and sticky and again laced with unpleasant uncooked garlic. All in all, we thought they failed to deliver on promise - perhaps as much a let down to the pleasant owner as ourselves. Perhaps it was the chef's night off, but that's no excuse. Quite expensive and clearly taking advantage of its position in the tourist part of Ubeda.

“Meal with style”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

On our second night in Ubeda we wanted to go up market from usual tapas bars, this place fitted the bill. It was well set out with nice tables and sparkling glass. The wine list was reasonable priced and the menu was to suit most tastes. As before when ordering meat in Spain if medium/rare is required order yours well done!! Good value a two course meal for two with wine 70 euros.

“Wonderful Tasting Menu”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Restaurante Antique is a small restaurant that has plenty of light and is very tastefully decorated. There is a tasting menu that costs 25.50 euros and includes a bottle of wine from Ribera del Duero, Rioja or Rueda. Both my wife and I had the tasting menu.

The tasting menu consists of 6 small plates that are wonderfully presented. The first plate is an aperitif and the last plate is the dessert. This is a great gastronomic treat that one will always remember.

One can also order from the a la carte menu, that is very complete and moderately priced. The service is very good and friendly.

“Nice creative food”
Reviewed 28 July 2013

We went searching for some creative tapas and that's what we found.
We decided to stay in the bar and not the restaurant. The service was nice, the food was exciting (Try the fried olives!) and the price was fair for what we got.

I would strongly recommend it for people searching for something different or not strictly tradictional.
