Pleasent afternoon at the Cantina Real

We went into Cantina Real for some chips and a drink to end our day of adventure...We had rented bikes and rode down to Redondo Beach. It was a long day in the sun, and the margaritas were very tasty. To top it off, we got Happy Hour prices and it was practically empty, so no Happy Hour... read more

We had a late lunch here and found the food to be fresh and delicious. The service was quick and friendly. I had the chicken flautas and they were very good. The guacamole was excellent but it was a very small scoop. My husband had the nachos. It was a large serving and very cheesy. The margarita had a fresh... More

Ate dinner inside the restaurant since it was a cool evening. The waiter was friendly and service was efficient. The chips and salsa were great to start with since I hadn't eaten in hours. The food was fresh and the portions were large. I took half the entree home. Good place for a quick and reasonably priced meal.

Great patio seating on Pier Avenue & The Strand. Efficient service. Fresh chips & salsa are complimentary. The margaritas worked their magic. Reasonably priced basic Ameri-mex fare - tacos, fajitas and other cheese-cloaked delights.

This restaurant has few veggie options and high beer prices. It is great to use their outdoor seating to watch people and to enjoy the scenery on a Sunday afternoon. The service is quick and efficient, and the food was acceptable but not great. This place could benefit of cheaper beers or affordable pitchers. I am glad a friend picked... More

Walking along hermosa beach we wanted a place to sit outside, eat and drink and people watch. Checked the menu of this place out, within our budget. Service is excellent, waiter is on top of things, busers are present refilling water and chips salsa. $6 beer, $9 burritos, $15 fajitas. Food came out really fast. The food was pretty good,... More

Our service was excellent and the food was delicious. With 8 people at our table, we all really enjoyed our meals. This is a restaurant which values customer service. We had a group of 10 and we nicely accommodated. Wait staff was attentive enough and we received drinks and food in a timely manner. I will definately return to Cantina... More

Bottomless chips & salsa! Great start! We ordered the chicken fajitas -- they don't serve fajitas for two, but there was enough to share! A friend ordered the enchiladas -- one bean, one cheese -- and said they were excellent! Good prices, good food.
