Awesome Mexican-Inspired Cuisine.

Our experience was awesome from beginning to end. Table side guacamole was excellent. Chicken and Bacon fajitas with Chipotle wine sauce was very unique. Never saw anything like that on a menu before. It was so good. Skirt steak was so tender and flavorful. For dessert get the sizzling... read more

We were looking for Mexican food and went to Cantina Laredo. We were not disappointed. Great outdoor seating and atmosphere. Amy was a tremendous server and checked on the table frequently. The portions were generous but not over whelming. Prices were in line with other similar establishments.

We also had dessert, Tres Leches, very good! Our friends enjoyed their dinners also, they had a taco plate. Also, the never ending chips were so good and light the salsa... More

We live here and enjoyed the food in the past. Corporate America once again ruined this place in the name of profits. Potatoes in the enchiladas. Not a green thing on the menu but a $10 avocado. REALLY. Drive a little further go to LaPaz in Destin for great expensive Mex fare.

I went to Cantina Laredo to try to find a good Mexican restaurant in an area where most of the restaurants are your typical taco/enchilada style restaurants. Having spent time in Mexico and Texas, I miss the more traditional Mexican fair. Unfortunately, Cantina Laredo, did not meet my expectations. Though the atmosphere was a much higher scale then your typical... More

We enjoy Mexican food but did not care for the food here, Service was excellent and decor was clean and modern. Banquette seats were too low for me to be comfortable but my 6 ft 6 son was satisfied. The noise level was way too loud for me...outside seating would have been a nice option if it had been warmer.... More

Modern Mexican is how this restaurant describes itself. My mother-in-law does not enjoy Mexican food but loved this place. The presentation was good though the food was not exceptional. Making the guacamole at the table was a nice touch. They used black beans for their refried beans which we appreciated. The bonus was the desserts which were to die for.
