We enjoyed an absolutely delicious meal here. We were well looked after by our waitress, Kirsty who took great care explaining the menu to us. I had fajitas and the dips that came with it were the best I've tasted. It's a really cosy, nicely decorated restaurant. We felt it was a quality meal at a reasonable price. The complimentary...

normally my wife and I choose badly on the first night. Hunger pangs take over and the first place will do. In this case the first place, almost literally, as it is right beside the entrance to Bellvue Aquarius, is Emma's Cantina. Vet good food, great service and a most enjoyable meal.

A regular lanza visitor, heard that Emma's Cantina was the best mexican on the island so though we would go. The first thing I noticed outside the restaurant were the 'rules'!!, a little off putting before you've even stepped inside. Anyway, on the basis I didn't have a buggie, was appropriately dressed etc. etc. we stepped inside. Service was good,... More

I went here twice last week on my stay. I had their fajitas which are very fairly price. They also do decent sangria. I would recommend this restaurant over any other I visited in the week. Great atmosphere too.

Visited this great place last year and the food was excellent. I like hot and spicy food and my brother in law and sister recommended the Hot Chilli which was "parp" tastic. Hot and spicy is what you order and its what you get. Great value and hope to return this year.

We dined here last week and it was excellent! I am a vegetarian and ordered the veggie chimichangas. It was one of the most delicious meals I have ever eaten. Great value for money, lovely atmosphere and fantastic staff! If I return to the Island I will definitely return to this restaurant!
