This restaurant easily matches very high end steak houses but at about half the cost. Their steaks rival the quality of any I've ever had. The atmosphere is casual and the service can fall behind, but overall this is one of my favorite restaurants in Orlando.

Linda's La Cantina still serves one of the best steak dinners in the Orlando area. It doesn't have the upscale appearance of many chain steak houses but it does offer a comfortable and welcoming place for a great steak. The service staff usually does a fine job especially the long time staff. Linda's is very popular with the locals and... More

We just dined at Linda's La Cantina restaurant, and it is one of our favorites! Their steaks are excellent and cooked to order. We love their spaghetti and even their fresh baked bread is excellent. Husband enjoys their minestrone soup. One tip -- if you want to eat there on Saturday evening, make reservations earlier in the week. By the... More

We have been coming here for years. I have been to all the more expensive steak restaurants but I keep coming back here. Why? The food is excellent and the wait staff is as well. Don't expect all the modern fancy decor. It's more like the simple, down home place you keep returning too. Order the ribeye you won't be... More

The steaks are consistently the best available in all of Central Florida. The restaurant has checkered table cloths and a line out the door. Nothing fancy in this family owned restaurant but the steaks overflow the plate and on any night you can find the place filled with locals celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and prom or just out for a good...

Linda's has been around for ever and serves the best steaks you can imagine. The Ribeye is always cooked to perfection and the prices are reasonable. This place is popular so make reservations on weekends.

Went to Linda's for dinner. Had the NY strip and spaghetti. Steak was one the best I've had in a long time. Nice atmosphere and has a full liquor bar. Will return the next time in area.

So glad that our friends took us to Linda's La Cantina. They said that the steaks would be good- they were amazingly good: huge, perfectly prepared, tasty and juicy! The staff were very welcoming and the accompanying wine, bread and sides were lovely. Can't wait to visit Orlando again!

We were visiting family in Orlando & they took us to this restaurant. They told us they have had the best steaks ever... This was really something coming from them since they have traveled around the world & I'm sure have tasted several steaks! We made reservations they day before (highly recommended) for 7:00 pm. When we arrived, it was... More

This used to be the best steak in town at a reasonable for good steak price. It was a mom and pop steak house with a huge following until a fire caused a rebuild and a divorce made it just Linda's La Cantina. The excellent quality continued for 25 more years until Linda's daughter/son- in-law duo essentially took it over... More
