There was one lonely expat customer at the bar having a drink, the restaurant was empty. We sat down at one of the tables and were handed the menu, to our surprise most of... More

This restaurant is within walking distance of where I am staying. I had seen the other reviews praising their Mexican food, and was curious if you could really get good Mexican food here. Besides, as a vet myself, I wanted to meet other vets. All the hype about their food was well deserved! I had several different items over various... More

Went here while I was visiting my parents and the food is awesome. This is coming from someone who lives is in San Diego, CA (near the border of Mexico) and has a ton of Mexican food all the time. The atmosphere was really nice and quiet. The set up of the restaurant was very clean and organized. Anyways, definitely... More

Their real genius is making available to the Philippine community with discerning taste buds the taste of Mexican cooking the way it's done the gringo side of... More

I enjoyed patronizing the VFW "La Cantina". It has a Tex Mex, as well as a good international menu, and a good assortment of drinks for the money. I also enjoyed talking with some of the "Long in the Tooth" patrons there, that adds to a nice social atmosphere. I plan to visit there again when I can get back... More

This newly relocated VFW Post and Canteen ("La Cantina Mexican Rest.") has remodeled the old "Finnigans" bar and rest. and added a great menu of Mexican and international favorites. The breakfast is still the best value in the Philippines for American and Aussie, as well as Filipino breakfast favorites. But the real treat is the addition of a full Mexican... More
