“Excellent service and great guacamole”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

Stumbled across Catina by accident and I'm so glad we went in. The service was excellent, the food was good and the guacamole was outstanding! The fresh juices were also delicious.

“So Good, Just Keep Going Back!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is My second review of Cantina Laredo's. We Moved here back in 2008 and We continue to Love This Place. We have visited some of the other Mexican Food Restaurant's in Abu Dhabi and none are as good as this place!!! The Service is excellent, have a wide variety on the menu to choose from. This is a Non-Smoking Restaurant, Credit Cards accepted, & if You are a regular vistor make sure to ask for their "Distinction" Card that is good for All Saleh Bin Lahej Group Restaurant's:) Examples: Chili's, Romano's Macaroni Grill... Cantina Laredo's is also easy on the pocket book, which is a major plus where so many places here in Abu Dhabi are very expensive. They also do delivery.
Pros: Most everything on the menu is good... Favorites--TOP SHELF GUACAMOLE, NACHOS AL CARBON COMBO, SOPA DE TORTILLA, PESCADO DEL DIA, CAMARONES ESCONDIDOS, FAJITAS, SEAFOOD PLATTER, BRISKET TACOS, BRISKET QUESADILLAS
Cons: The ENCHILADAS are not one of their strong areas.But then again We are from Texas where some of the Best Mexican Food Is!!! And We Love the CHILI CON QUESO, but some of the time, it is just way to thick, and other times perfect.
They do have the Best Iced Tea in Abu Dhabi & make sure and try to save room for Desserts, all are good!!!

“If you are craving Mexcain, it will hit the spot!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Let's start off by saying Abu Dhabi doesn't have the best selection of Mexican food but
if you are craving it, this is as close as you will get. I've tried the other resturant at the Shearton and compared to this place it's rubbish. There is only one other place but I have yet to try that one!

A few things.
1. The servers are very friendly.
2. The guacamole is very good; they make it right in front of you.
3. All I've ever really had were the fajitas but they were always good.
4. No margaritas :(

“Great guacamole, average meals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The guacamole is made fresh at your table and is worth the visit. The deserts are also good, but the entrees are just average.
