After walking out of Istanblue (which I posted about earlier), we had no place to go. One guy in out party of 6 suggested Cantina, so we took a chance. Fortunately, they were able to accommodate us, and I remain grateful. Fabulous salsa, average pitcher of margaritas, average food, lots of noise. But I'm not complaining, just trying to give... More

My husband and I had a great lunch here yesterday, August 6. I had the Lobster Burrito and he had the Habanero Shrimp Burrito. Mine was bursting with lobster to my delight, along with sautéed spinach, black beans and corn. My husband's Habanero Shrimp Burrito also had an abundance of shrimp, asparagus, black beans and corn. Both were made with... More

We cam here on Sunday afternoon. We sat outside which was nice, except the table are just about on top of each other, and I was facing the person at the next table which was a little uncomfortable. The chips and salsa were good, and the open faced quesidilla appetizer wasn't bad, but the chicken chimichanga dinner was dry and... More

We were in Saratoga to see a band in Cafe Lena around the corner, and as we are big Mexican food fans we decided this would be a good choice. But we were to be very disappointed. Not very attentive service wss followed by the most flavor less Mexican food I have tasted in years. Not really sure how it... More

Have been to the Cantina several times. The food is good and the drinks are enjoyable, and you can't beat Saratoga in the Summertime! I wish they had an offering of a less chunky salsa and hi-end frozen margaritas - that's my personal preference, however, it won't stop me from going back. The Cantina is close to everything downtown and... More

I've eaten here several times over the past few years, often with my daughter before or after a SPAC performance. This was the case this week. We arrived on a hot, busy evening and were told the wait was 20 minutes inside but we could be seated outside immediately. We had an 8 o'clock curtain so opted for outside. Water... More

The food was OK but the drinks, service and atmosphere were great. I would definitely recommend this place for drinks and appetizers.

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
