Late lunch after a hike

This place has good atmosphere and very good food. The service was fast and the staff were very pleasant. We split a Chicken Quesadilla which was plenty of food for 2. Although guacamole garnish was a bag version, it was a good lunch.

Good value. Basic menu. No views. Fun staff. It's located in a mall close to Arabella Hotel and above the main downtown area. There is nothing particularly interesting about it, but if you are staying in town and need a good meal, they will not disappoint.

This is my 2nd time to this Cantina and it didn't disappoint. Food was excellent, service was very good and the guacamole was to die for. When my family is visiting from out of state and in need for great, authentic Mexican food in Sedona this is the place I take them. We had Chimichanga, tacos, pork carnitas and the... More

Had a great meal here. Just as good as anywhere we've been in Mexico. We each had one of the combos and was almost too much food. Varied menu and everything looked great!

We really enjoyed walking from our small in to this Mexican restaurant. Pretty setting in the midst of interesting shops. The service was quick and efficient. We both enjoyed fajitas - chicken and steak. Such reasonable prices for the amount of food we had! All good.

Javelina Cantina is an all around good Mexican restaurant with great value at Happy Hour for both food and beverage. We eat there from time to time and it is always a decent meal but nothing truly distinct. A large menu with a variety of options and more fish dishes than a lot of other Mexican establishments. Many of our... More

Great food, great service, and great red rock views from the patio! Our server Daniel was top notch! He made good recommendations, but was not pushy. The food arrived quickly and was delicious! We would love to eat there again!

Have been many times and its great food - if not a little expensive. For the tourists, but as locals we avoid it at weekends. It has great cocktails, great salads and good Southwestern food.

We wanted to like this place. The waiter was friendly and service was fine. I had the chicken enchiladas and was disappointed. The chicken was overlooked and a little tough. The flavor was surprisingly bland. We expected better, mostly because this is Arizona and we heard the Mexican food would be really good. The price was what you'd expect at... More
