I've come here for over 2 decades through the years. I love the fun vibe here, love the location in walking distance to the beach, love the ambiance, etc. The food is ok to good but it's worth it for everything else (including the price).

I love the ambiance of this place, feels like a surf joint, but unfortunately the food is not great. There just is not much flavor. Seems would be difficult for Mexican restaurant to have bland food but this one does.

We spent the whole nite playing cards and celebrating our teenage daughter’s birthday. Eleazar, our waiter, was so kind and attentive. We had to eat gluten free, and he made sure we were taken care of. Thank you so much to the entire Baja Cantina...More

This was exactly what we were looking for. Our waitress , Olivia, was terrific. She suggested the perfect tequila drink and anticipated our every want. Fajitas with steak and chicken were great.

This was the food highlight of my time in California. I even jokingly (kinda) called my girlfriend after eating at Baja Cantina and told her that she and I would fly out to have dinner there. Can’t wait to go back!

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
