This place is cute and simple. it makes you feel like you are in a middle of an old cute town and you are! But our group was not impressed with the food. Mexican food can be so much better than that! Portions were tiny, expensive and service was not the best! Try Chipotle instead! You will eat so much... More

Being one of my favorite restaurants in the community, it was our first stop for the Taste of Streetsville fundraiser in support of our local hospital. The 'Taste of Streetsville' was no deal and didn't offer anything different so we ordered off the regular menu for the same price. It is commonplace to overhear guests complaining about the delays in... More

I went to Cantina Mexicana with a group for a birthday. The waiter consistently forgot to bring the drinks we ordered, so we had to ask him multiple times to bring what we wanted. The food took an hour and a half to come to the table. After an hour we complained and only then did the waiter bring out... More

Cantina Mexicana is the perfect spot to embrace the summer heat with a glass of the delicious sangria or margarita. Everything is fresh and home made from the corn chips and salsa, to the tortilla shells and guacamole. This is an authentic Mexican restaurant and the owner is a sweet woman who you will most likely find stuffing tamales when... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Streetsville. The food is delicious; authentic, fresh and full of flavor. The inside is very colorful with articles highlighting the restaurant's success hang on the walls. food is served on heavy brightly colored dishes from Mexico. There is a patio that needs a little work but has great potential but unnoticeable when... More

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
