We chose this restaurant on our first visit to the Outer Banks based on personal research and a recommendation from our real estate agency. We were in search of a family restaurant with decent food that didn't break the bank. The Corolla Cantina more than delivered! As a family of 7, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

Stopped in for a quick drink with family while vacationing in corolla. There was nothing great or terrible about the place. Inside, there are maybe 20 seats. They do have an outside area where a few people were sitting. We had all mixed drinks (5 in total). They were about $10 a piece which seemed overpriced for some premade drink... More

Good food but stick to the Mexican food only. Plus a good selection of adult beverages. The menu has a nice selection and service is good. Sit in the outdoor area with a nice view of the lighthouse.

On the suggestion of our guide (Bob's Wild Horse Tours) we decided to eat here before heading to the Currituck Lighthouse. Small and intimate. Very cute waitresses - maybe that's why he suggested? I ordered the California Club and my husband ordered the Shrimp Quesadilla. Both were quite hearty and tasty. The only drawback is they only serve Pepsi products,... More

Very good mexican food, not your typical mexican food. My daughter and I shared the nachos as we were trying to eat a light meal, we got the chicken nachos, the chicken was VERY good, obviously homemade, not frozen. My 7 year old daughter had her first chicken quesadilla (she always gets plain cheese) and loved it!! I dont remember... More

We travel a lot and look for those places that surprise you with the quality if the food. This is one of the best. Their use of spices/ fruits/oils is really special. Have eaten breakfast and dinners here and have left with smile every time.

Excellent Island food. Exactly what you would expect from a beach town. My family really enjoyed this place numerous times during our week spent in OBX. Thanks Nadia for putting up with us. See you next time.

I really like the vibe of this place. Love the outside seating on the lanai. Nadia has brought all of the surf travel comforts from around the world and put it all in one place. I had the Baja Fish Burrito with coconut infused rice and black beans on the side. Good stuff! Just what I'm looking for after a... More
