It is just "Spanish" style but definitely not authentic Spanish. The tapas were good, though. They also have San Miguel beer, and the location in Pietermaai is very convenient. Excellent for a drink.

Will never go back. We ordered two simple tapas and a couple of beers. Waited 10 minutes to order. Then waited another 40+ minutes and no food. Terrible service and they didn't even seem to care that we left.

La Cantina has a great location on the corner with seating all around the porch. However the tapas that we ordered were not very impressive. Individual tapas can add up quickly, so they have a menu where you can order unlimited tapas for 40 Nafl.,...More
