Absolutely worth going here!

Best shrimp ceviche ever! Salsa is fresh and home made. Chips are delicious as well as everything else that was served. Our server Ana was a delight. It's family owned and run. Portions and price are right on the money. We'll be going back.

Excellent find! Great food and service. Family run. Food is very fresh and prices very reasonable. Great alternative to the crowded, expensive tourist traps in the area!

We were the last customers to be served the evening we went. The staff was very attentive and spent some time with us talking about the photos on the wall and their heritage, etc. The food could have been much worse and we still would have enjoyed the meal due to the conversation. The Chili Relleno was very good, and... More

We find it hard to find decent vegetarian food when we travel, not knowing the places. Invariably we get stuck with pizza or subs. We wanted to try our luck and were pleasantly surprised here in la cabana restaurant l. The usual veggie options like quesadilla and burrito are out of the world. I wold definitely recommend this place if... More

We enjoy trying new places at the beach and we're glad we found this gem. The portions are large, the taste is very good, and the prices are very reasonable. The guacamole was so good we ordered it three times. The gigantic burrito was the size of a small infant and was about four times the size of their normal... More

I was very surprised by the great food considering that the restaurant seems to be almost empty every time I visit. I highly recommend Chicken Nachos and the Stuffed jalepenos on the appetizer menu! YUM YUM! The only thing is that they need to provide bigger slices of lemons with their water.
