I came here with my boyfriend for lunch without reservation. The staff was kind enough to offer a table for an hour so we appreciate it. The design of the interior and chinaware looks cute and interesting. We ordered three dishes without knowing the portion size. We couldn't finish everything and had to take away because we felt bad throwing... More

Two of my friends and I wanted to eat dinner here, granted it was a Saturday night around 9, but there was a table open, and one of the waitress refused to serve us, and was completely hostile also..we just held up 3 fingers without even saying a word and she just said "no," and even after we said we'd...

We had booked a table in advance and glad we did as the restaurant was very busy. The food was tasty but as other people suggest nothing spectacular. Also the portions were so large we couldn't finish our meal. Service was a little hasty, but staff seemed friendly enough. There are plenty of other restaurants to choose from in Prague... More

We don't understand why this place is so popular. The food isn't great and it requires a reservation because of the local urban myth that it has good food. Anyway, the food is OK, and the service is fine. But it is always crowded, and a reservation is usually required.

Not sure why this place gets amazing reviews? Possibly because there are very few mexican restaurants in Prague. We arrived around 6pm on 3rd April, no available tables so we sat at the bar. I had veg fajitas and hubby had chicken. Both ok, but nothing outstanding, I asked for jalapeno's instead of refried beans. Advised sure no problem, food... More

Came here after reading the reviews and thought it was ok, but not something I'd write home about. We booked a table, as per suggestions. The service was fine, but not outstanding. We were persuaded to get some nachos to start which were not needed in the slightest, and by the time you added in the guacamole, sour cream and... More

The restaurant had all the tables reserved when we got there but they allowed us to stay and eat as long as we were done in time for the next people. The food was amazing - really good Mexican and huge portions. Bit more expensive than other restaurants in Prague but worth it. The staff speak very little English, and... More

My partner and I visited Cantina whilst on a short break to Prague - it was absolutely delicious. The food was so tasty we ordered far too much but somehow managed to eat it all! The meat is so tender and tastes amazing - definitely one of the best Mexican Restaurants I have been to. The atmosphere of the restaurant... More

like shdw, I found this to be a decent restaurant with delicious food.... For me, the bonus was that it provided food which was gluten-free and despite the fact I had forgotten my translation, the staff recognised the words when written down and provided a delicious meal. The only problem was that there was so much! I think I had... More

Cantina is a decent restaurant with delicious food, casual atmosphere and middle level of pricing. I had chicken fajitas and enjoyed the food very much. The place was almost full which is usually a sign of a good restaurant. Cantina might not be the right choice if you're on a budget but when you feel like rewarding yourself with some... More
