My husband & I have been here about 3 times sometimes with a large group. On our most recent visit, we had tacos and burritos - both large portions and very good. I agree with a previous reviewer about the celerity of the service at Cantina. Our food came out in about 7 minutes - not kidding! On previous occasions,... More

I'm a local. Been here several times, but I don't ever remember leaving there still hungry. I had their Baja fish tacos...3 very small that came with a side of rice and beans. The size of the fish was not even noticable. Another at our table had the scallop, shrimp and lobster taco. Was a decent size, however, it was... More

Had dinner there on a Monday in mid-June - not very crowded. We had 4 adults and two children (4 & 6) and had been there previously. Ordered a variety of menu items, seated in the 'bar' section. Rating would have been higher except for two factors. Kitchen was swift in getting our food out but maybe too swift. Waitress... More

We popped in here for a quick drink and a snack while waiting to go to a concert at SPAC. We were disappointed. They gave us chips and salsa and while the salsa was amazing – the chips seemed very stale. My wine tasted funny and the atmosphere was ok. We sat at the bar and the bartender seemed pretty... More

We decided to stop in and try this restaurant while out walking around the downtown area. They had a cute outdoor seating area but it was getting a bit cooler so we put our name in for an inside table. Service was very good. We ordered mojitos which were excellent the best I have ever had. The nachos were o.k.... More

Great Mexican food in a fun atmosphere. The outdoor patio was open and packed early in the night. There was a musician providing live music which was varied and great. The variety of drinks and menu choices was refreshing. I ordered the tostada del mar, and my girlfriend ordered the chicken fajita. The portions were perfect and delicious, the salsa... More

Everyone loves a good Mexican restaurant. The food at Cantina is pretty good - the burritos are decent, and the steak quesadilla is worth going back for. The margaritas are good, but try to go during happy hour. They charge a ridiculous price for a pitcher of flavered margs - $45. They're not THAT good! Still, if you go during... More

The Cantina Restaurant in Saratoga is a real stand out. It is easy to get okay Mexican food in the capital region, it is hard to find anything good. While it is a trip from my home in Albany it is well worth it. The homemade chips and salsa were a delicious start, paired with cheese enchiladas and a glass... More

The chips and salsa were very good, our server, nicki was nice. I had the mushroom enchiladas. There was a taste I wasn't fond of but it was ok. My friend had the fish taco and said it was very good. The traditional guacamole was just ok, I like chunks of avocado in my guacamol. The place was crowded so... More
