We chose Cantina 109 because they offer vegetarian entrees. We prefer outside seating but were hesitant based on the previous review about flies. We sat outside anyway and there were no flies. The wet burrito and veggie enchiladas were delicious! Chips and salsa were great...too! Server Shyler was friendly and attentive. The manager stopped by and we asked about the fly review. Apparently there was just one week when they were a nuisance. We enjoyed our dinner and we will be back!More

First my waitress Natalia was excellent and very attentive. The bartender Chase made great margaritas and the kitchen staff made great grouper tacos. Amazing all around, all ready recommended to my friends.

Nice outdoor patio. Great service. Food - ehhhh but it was a decent place. I had a salad - the dressing was misstated - said it was a viniagrette - i checked - but it wasn't. I'll try somewhere else.

My husband and I often come with family and/or friends for their taco special on Tuesdays. The food never disappoints and the service is exceptional! It’s fun to have the guacamole made table side, too. The general manager, Mike, often stops by to make sure...everything is A-okay. Definitely recommend Cantina 109!More

Pam is the most amazing and the best server as always. The taco Tuesday is always spot on with specials. This is a hidden gem and a must for the tequila aficionado.

Very tasty choices. Ordered tacos and burritos. The burrito was served cut in half. Never had that before. Was tasty. Not the best ever. Margaritas were great. The service was very good. Definitely go back.

Recently stopped into Cantina 109 to order take out, we were seated outside as requested and promptly provide menus, freshly made complementary tortillas and excellent salsa. I ordered a Dos Eqius which was served ice cold ! The Lady ordered the large Taco Salad, oh...myyyy it’s large with ground beef, served with all the trimmings. She loved it and plenty left over for another dinner. I ordered the Tacos Al Carbon, 3 generous fajita style chicken Tacos served with my requested sides of black beans and rice. The Tacos were delicious, cilantro and lime nicely finishing the flavor. And again this was a generous portion which provide ample leftovers. And Barb the server was Great ! Yes, we will be back.More

Staying on Sanibel island but no Mexican restaurants. Found Cantina 109 thru Trip Advisor. Went to Fort Myers for mini golf and dinner. Restaurant located in nice mall. Service was excellent, food very good and nicely decorated. Our family recommends it.
