Great Ambience, Great Food

Super Mojitos while browsing the excellent menu, the food was authentic and presented well, as you would expect from a "Tito " brand the staff were super. Will be back for more !

To be honest mexican food is my least favorite food. What I am reviewing here is the wonderful music provided, the great atmosphere, the decor, the staff and the whole shebang. The place is very artistically done as well as being by the sea. If you like Mexican food you will probably like that too, but for us the mariachi... More

Very friendly staff - Australian waiter so helpful with great advice. Sometimes Mexican food can be bland but all dishes so very tasty. Sombrero's for photos a nice touch. Surprised not offered tequila slammers as other tables were and had these offered on previous visit. Good value dining experience nevertheless.

Although the building and garden setting of this restaurant was nice, the quality of food was pretty poor. Things looked bad from the start when the Nacho chips that arrived were stale and damp (i.e. not crisp). The food we got was edible but just lacking the flavour, care and attention that you would expect. Service was ok though.

Visited with a 6 and 8 year old who loved the choices from the main menu - no need for the children's choices. Great meals for the adults too- all cooked beautifully. The mariachi guitar player was a brilliant extra touch. Surroundings were colourful and comfortable. Staff were fabulous. Helpful and friendly. We loved it and will be back again... More

Having been to the bar during the day, thought we'd try upstairs at the restaurant. Friendly staff and a nice relaxing setting. There isn't a massive choice of what food to have, but the food we had (Beef and Chicken Enchiladas) were good and filling. Had a few cocktails which were decent and even got to wear the sombreros. Good... More

Most Mexican restaurants are really Tex Mex , but this little gem has the authentic feel of Mexico. Quaint decor , smiling young staff and genuine imported beers help to provide the atmosphere that reminds me of that lovely , fun , country. I was surprised how much the food has improved since my last visit a couple of years... More

We have visited La Cantina a few times but it just gets better & better. Our visit in April included entertainment by a brilliant Mexican themed singer Pepe. The food is excellent and the service first class. This is a sister restaurant to Tito's Chiringuito and complements it very well. You can be assured of a very warm welcome at... More
