Decided to go Mexican although it is not my favourite food - this place has changed my mind! Situated above Titos beach bar it is very colourful and a very happy go lucky sort of place. Will get straight on to the menu. Shared a starter of stuffed Jalapeno peppers, very tasty stuffed with cheese. For mains we had the... More

Not sure what's happened here , I know the owner Tito is no longer there but he was never hands on. Just popped in for a couple of Tacos & beers, on entrance the staff looked unhappy and stressed even though it was almost empty . They usually give you a few tacos and salsa while you wait but not...

I have visited here on previous stays in Mojacar with my boyfriend, this time we had our little boy and my parents with us who had never been before. The food was as fantastic as ever, the service was spot on and the atmosphere perfect. Will definitely return on our next visit to Mojacar.

Having lived close by for over 10 years, went to La Cantina for the first time, and was pleasantly surprised to find a gem on my doorstep. Great food, excellent service, the atmosphere was without doubt one of the best we have experienced in Mojacar. I can only recommend this restaurant as a must visit on your list of places... More

To be honest mexican food is my least favorite food. What I am reviewing here is the wonderful music provided, the great atmosphere, the decor, the staff and the whole shebang. The place is very artistically done as well as being by the sea. If you like Mexican food you will probably like that too, but for us the mariachi... More

Very friendly staff - Australian waiter so helpful with great advice. Sometimes Mexican food can be bland but all dishes so very tasty. Sombrero's for photos a nice touch. Surprised not offered tequila slammers as other tables were and had these offered on previous visit. Good value dining experience nevertheless.

Although the building and garden setting of this restaurant was nice, the quality of food was pretty poor. Things looked bad from the start when the Nacho chips that arrived were stale and damp (i.e. not crisp). The food we got was edible but just lacking the flavour, care and attention that you would expect. Service was ok though.

Visited with a 6 and 8 year old who loved the choices from the main menu - no need for the children's choices. Great meals for the adults too- all cooked beautifully. The mariachi guitar player was a brilliant extra touch. Surroundings were colourful and comfortable. Staff were fabulous. Helpful and friendly. We loved it and will be back again... More

Hi CJ of Bristol Thanks so much for your great review of Tito's Cantina - we are really pleased to learn that you and your family had such a great experience at our Mexican restaurant. Isn't the Mariachi fun? And such good entertainment for families....and we are equally pleased that the children liked the food....it seems to be a big... More
