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... read 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

This place is a hidden gem. A local's favorite. Nothing fancy, but a very good steak. Visited recently for business. I had the cajun shrimp and coconut shrimp appetizer. The coconut shrimp tasted like any other. The cajun shrimp were fairly good. The side salad was like you would find anywhere else. The star of the night was the T-Bone.... More

While on a business trip to Orlando, I found Linda's on a Tuesday evening. The place was full of customers. The waiting time to be seated was of 15 minutes. The place is clean, comfortable, and features a dim lighting. The staff was courteous and attentive. The menu has an array of main items but limited on the accompanying side... More
