Probably the worse service I have ever had in my life. We asked more than one server if we could get some drinks. Both said yes and then walked away. The food took so long, by the time the last person in our group of 12 got their food, the first two people were finished eating. The food was good,... More

I love Cantina Mexicana for lunch for dinner, for Corona, and everything is so fresh and tasty. It has a charming casual atmosphere and feels like you are in Mexico, The price is right and the food is always good. They also have an outdoor patio this time of year which is great as well. I love Mexico and this... More

We had dinner here on Mothers Day. The restaurant was quiet, but the food was amazing. I had the Zapatas feast and it was a ton of food. We each tried something different and everyone enjoyed their meal. We didn't have dessert, but next time we'll stay for that. The owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome. Money... More

I've lived in the GTA for 10 years and I've been going to this place since I moved here. I always liked the place, but a few years ago I had the privilege of traveling in Mexico, accompanied by a local chef. I can tell you this food is authentic Mexican. Every dish is prepared on site, and arrive fresh... More

Cantina Mexicana can be a little on the high side if your experience of Mexican food is limited, but the dishes are very traditional and decidedly different than your typical chain TexMex restaurant

Most restaurants in the area are chain restaurants. Not this one! Authentic Mexican food and drink in the type of Mexican restaurant you encountered on your last trip to Mexico, if you left the resort and went into town! Not too large but, plenty of atmosphere! The restaurant is owned and run by a very gracious lady who IS actually... More

I rarely, almost never, give a 5 out of 5 rating as I like to give the business something to work for. But sometimes when a feel a restaurant was already a 4 out of 5 and somehow they managed to make my experience better, then they deserve the 5 of 5. I have been going to Cantina Mexicana for... More

We frequent Cantina Mexicana a few times a year with family (2 young sons) and sometimes our parents, who are vegetarian. We have always found that the food is very tasty, and no difficulty finding vegetarian options. The kids also like the food. I can see why some people feel that the owner is rude - I think it's just... More
