Looking for your standard Mexican fare then give it a try. Nothing special on the menu that we could find (been here twice since moving here 5 months ago). If a weekend, know that parking is tough in the area so be ready to shell...More

The food has gone very much downhill since we first started going here 19 years ago. It's a fun place to go for drinks on Sunday after a long day at the beach. Drinks are average and food...well I wouldn't eat there again. It's a...More

This place has a great vibe, fun music and lovely staff. We had the chicken nachos with were incredible, highly recommend. The chicken quesadilla was amazing too, hot, cheesy and delicious. Cocktails were fun and strong. Will be returning.

I take everyone here, especially visitors who foolishly tell me, "The Mexican food in _____________ (Texas, Chicago, New Mexico, whatever) is WAY better than any in California." They never say such silly things again - at least not in my presence! I've been here more...More

Chilled location, if you want beers and tacos. They have great rice, its special, but you have to like coconut flavor. Not a must, but a great choice if you are beaching in the area.

A cosy environment together with good and spicy food make this place worth a visit. Try out their Margaritas!

First time to Baja Cantina...delicious!! We are from Colorado and used Trip advisor to find this great local spot last night. Carne Asada green burrito was great. We sat in the open patio area (no reservation needed).

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
