Taste of Streetsville

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... read more

A few of us were looking for some authentic Mexican cuisine and found it at Cantina Mexicana. It has an old world feel and pace so if you don't have the time or are looking for fine dining, this isn't the place. But if you're looking for delicious, home-cooked-like food, than you won't disappointed. We tried most of the menu... More

The hubby and I were craving some Authentic Mexican because we had tried some recently while on holiday in Arizona. We were the first ones in the restaurant and we're going to sit outside, but the patio was shabby and not too clean so we opted to sit inside. We both ordered a Sol (mexican) beer which turned out to... More

Such a shame because we had been there twice previously (once 10+ years ago, and once within the last year or two) and had good experiences both of those times. This time we went for lunch with our two kids ages 9 & 5. My oldest had tacos with ground beef, was told there was 'a little' carrots and potatoes... More

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

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
