Perfect, really good food. The food was made with love, presentation of the food and the interior of the restaurant was great. My husband and I ordered 2 starters, Nachos with cheese and avocado. We also took a combo for 2 with a blue corn...taco with chicken, quesidilla, beef tortilla and avocado nachos. For drink frozen strawberry margarita. There was too much food, but it was really really tasty. Thank you Max, the service was excellent. We were here for the first time and will come again. I highly recommend. We had a table reservation (a party of 4), although on weekdays you might get a table without a reservation.More

We didn’t know where we should go eat dinner, so we asked a local resident... They recommended this restaurant... We came here with pretty low expectations... But the expectations didn't become reality! The quality of food and service was amazing! (we had a good laugh...from the jokes on the walls) Everyone will find something to eat here! PS: if you heard someone say that it is spicy here, they weren't lying! It is spicy...More

Texas Cantina is very good restaurant. Service was very good ( thank You Max) and also food. We'll eat here again when we next time go to Tallinn. The Only thing that comes to mind is that I would hope to know that there is...corianter in the food. That is not my favourite (tastes a bit like soap to me) and that would be good thing to ask from the customer making the order.More

Thank you! We are sorry you didn't like the cilantro in our food. Unfortunately chopped cilantro can be found in most Tex-Mex dishes. Next time please let the server know you don't like it.

Visited the place with a friend. Staff was super friendly even though they were in a rush. We had to wait for our food for quite a while but it was worth it at the end. If you’re looking for a chill place with excellent...grilled texmex food this is your best bet in Tallinn.More

Yet again a great visit to the Cantina. 2nd visit to the new restaurant but it's still got the same charm as the old place. Service was excellent and friendly as usual and the bbq baby back ribs were great. Oh i discovered Jalapeno Daisy...too....Lovely!More

Amazing good, Great service, lovely atmosphere. We were told upon arrival that would be approximately 45 minutes wait on the food, which only gave us time to enjoy a drink before dinner. The margaritas are amazing.

We liked the food and drinks. The waitress that served us was nice and answered our questions with pleasure. However, we had other not so pleasant things to say. We reserved the table for 8 pm and even pre-ordered food. When we arrived, we immediately...received all food (chicken wings were cold though), BUT our drinks arrived 35 min later. So, we pretty much almost finished our food by that moment. It seemed like the place was either understaffed or something else happened. Anyway, drinks should always come first!!! Just to make your customers tipsy, happier and more patient. I understand that there're situations when the place is busy, but a small complimentary drink or some other good will gesture would definitely make us feel more satisfied.More

The first time we visited and by throwing absolutely great food and points to the staff ✌️😊 Even though the food took its own time to arrive, our waiter (Max?) made sure that everything was fine. We will definitely visit again

We sat in the rear terrace and had a combo plate with various small servings of entree items and hot (very spicy) chicken wings to accompany. It was more than enough food for two, which is good to know because the prices posted on the...menu outside are pretty lofty (but not at all out of line for Tallinn, especially in the old town). So, basically a good value. Food was nicely done with a variety of interesting flavors. I can't speak for authenticity, but the preparation was definitely many cuts above the carelessly put together clumps of cheese and ground meat that passes for Mexican or Tex-Mex in many places I've been to in the US and elsewhere and comparable to the best I've had. So, the kitchen knows what it's doing and takes the trouble to do it well. Service was personable and attentive. So, the serving staff also does what it should.More

Excellent atmosphere. The food was delicious. The service was slow but not the fault of the waitresses or waiters, it was no big deal. Amazing margheritas. It was so good we went back again during our stay. As a side note, can I say that...even if the service is not satisfactory, to actually name the server, like some posters did is nothing short of a nasty move. There is no need to name names. These are real people who need these jobs so well done for singling out staff instead of it being a teaching moment and speaking to someone there and then. Hope you feel really important after naming waiters. My friend and I loved it and would recommend!More

Had a lot of fun with friends trying different margaritas. My favourite is the Habanero Margarita, but the Margarita Coronita has the best entertainment value ☺️ Our waiter Max was very fun and knew a lot about different drinks. They even sang us Happy Birthday...and we got free cake 🎉More

Howdy! For Friday/Saturday night it is necessary to make a reservation. For any other days - we usually have couple free tables in the evening - but it is always better to book a table via booking@texas.ee or our homepage.
