So I went with a friend to grab a bite to eat and was treated horribly! First of all, we were seated and after us 2 white families of 5 were then seated. Both families were tended to and even served their food before us and it was only two of us. I ordered a burrito when the waiter finally... More

This WAS an incredible authentic Mexican restaurant at a great location on the boardwalk, but sadly it's no longer here!

You really can't go wrong with Cantina's menu. Just about everything on it is at least passable. Some of it is downright tasty, especially when it's slathered with their famous sour cream.

"Outdoor"/indoor seating, very low key, nothing fancy, but great Mexican food and very friendly staff. Except for some biteing flies, we loved the place!

We went into Cantina Real for some chips and a drink to end our day of adventure...We had rented bikes and rode down to Redondo Beach. It was a long day in the sun, and the margaritas were very tasty. To top it off, we got Happy Hour prices and it was practically empty, so no Happy Hour shehanigans to... More

We had a late lunch here and found the food to be fresh and delicious. The service was quick and friendly. I had the chicken flautas and they were very good. The guacamole was excellent but it was a very small scoop. My husband had the nachos. It was a large serving and very cheesy. The margarita had a fresh... More

Ate dinner inside the restaurant since it was a cool evening. The waiter was friendly and service was efficient. The chips and salsa were great to start with since I hadn't eaten in hours. The food was fresh and the portions were large. I took half the entree home. Good place for a quick and reasonably priced meal.
