If you like Spanish/Mexican food must stop. Been to Bisbee two times and stopped for lunch there twice.

It took 10 minutes after we were seated to get a food server to bring us something to drink. I had to ask a food server to take care of us. The fajitas we order were lacking seasoning.The only plus was the generous portions. We...were told this was the best Mexican restaurant in the community. They need helpMore

Best fish tacos ever. My friend had the enchiladas, which were equally as good. Would highly recommend.

We decided to try Contessas cantina out one night and glad we did! I ordered the Chicken and Shrimp Fajitas and Oh My God-the plate came out sizzling and piled high with jumbo shrimps and what looked like a whole steak cut up on the...plate! I couldn't even finish it-it was fantastic!My wife had Enchiladas which also was great! Service was A+ and very quick which is always nice, but they didn't rush you like some places do! Would highly recommend people!!More

There were nine of us so we had a patio table which was excellent on a beautiful night. Food was delicious and our cocktails and local beer choices were excellent. We will definitely eat here again when we return to Bisbee.

Pretty good Mexican food. Pozole done a bit different than normal with a beef broth. But food was good as was the service. Great cucumber jalapeño margarita

Many choices on the menu and everything is made from scratch no boxed food here. Excellent flavor and food was piping hot. Margaritas were top notch!

We really loved this place. Great service, great food and you MUST try the cucumber jalapeno margarita! The fireplace in the main dining area was so nice for a winter night's meal. Nicely decorated, too. We were very pleased!
