Best steak in Orlando

I've been going to La Cantina for close to 50 years. My parents would take me as a child. We went again last night with friends and again it was awesome. We didn't arrive until after 9:00 and we were the last ones to leave. The service was perfect, the food was perfect and the prices are great..

We were visiting Orlando and while we were in town my Cousin took us out to dinner. He said Linda's has the best steaks in all of Orlando. I can tell you I have been to some good steak houses. Peter Luger, Chicago chophouse and Ruth Chris to name a few. When we sat down the server was quick to... More

We are from out-of-state. Our daughter has wanted to take us to La Cantina, so on our latest trip to Orlando we decided to check it out. We went on a week night and without a reservation. We sat in the bar for drinks. More patrons were eating in the bar than just drinking. The decor was slightly dated but... More

For 40 years my wife have enjoyed this steakhouse. Even when we retired and moved across the State we still find ourselves coming back for the steak many times each year.

Another family owned restaurant worth checking out! This is where we go when we want a delicious steak. One of the best steaks in town! :)

The waiters are the sweetest ones you will ever find, the food is superb, the place may need a little update, but that's not why you go there anyway. Place is packed every night.

My husband and I went to Linda's La Cantina for dinner on our anniversary. I had a 4 oz filet mignon, with a salad and baked potato. My husband ordered eggplant parmesan with a side of spaghetti and a salad. For desert, we shared a piece of chocolate cake with coffee. The meal was delicious. The service attentive, efficient, and... More

Unusual deco, reminds me of the 50's but the food is superb. Party of 3, all ordered steaks and were very pleased. The pace here is slow, designed to let you enjoy your meal and company. You do not feel any rush to give up your table to another party which to me is a plus. The homemade salad dressings... More

This restaurant has been a fixture in Orlando for more than fifty years. The atmosphere belies the quality of the steaks. The prices are really reasonable and the sides are unremarkable, but the steaks rival the best I've ever tasted.

We visited La Cantina Saturday night and I am always amazed at how perfect the steaks are every time we come here. We had medium filet, small filet, medium strips and a t-bone and everyone commented how fantastic they were. Of course another reason our night was perfect was Jessie, we ask for her by name because we know that... More
