Great snack place!

Loved the chips and home made salsa and hot sauces! At least I believe they were in house made. We were assured they were! Will come back to try more!!

Sat at the bar and had chicken enchiladas with mole sauce. They were FANTASTIC! The chips and salsa provided were good quality and the service was efficient and friendly.

Had lunch at this lively restaurant. Appreciated that the menu offered some twists on the traditional Mexican fare. For example, they don't just have "taco salad" but several salads with fresh toppings such as grilled shrimp (tasty) and papaya, and several dressing options. They also have half orders of nachos in case you aren't sharing a big platter. Would return!

I like the ambiance, and the food there especially the fajitas. The happy hour has some good deals. Also, a good place to watch a Seahawks game. There is free wifi there.

I remember having this incredible salad on the top floor of Pacific Place last year so a friend and I returned after seeing a movie the other night. Recognized the Mexico Cantina right away and, despite being crowded, we were shown to a small booth right away and received very attentive service. Our server was very friendly and she was... More

A challenge to fit a family of 12 on a Saturday night - but our waiter did a fabulous job taking our orders and answering our questions. I liked the eggplant; others had the steak, salmon, and chicken salad - don't know everything around the big table. Loved the chips. Not so fond of my margarita. Nice ambience and easy... More

We joined another coupler a Friday night out (Figgy Pudding Caroling Competition) and headed over to Pacific Place for something to eat. We ended up at the Mexica Cantina Y Cocina. Both couples shared fajitas - really packed with flavor and a great value, too! Even though there was a 45-minute wait in the dining room we got immediate seating... More

I've been here twice within the last 2 months. The first time I tried the seafood enchilada. It was very good. I came back a month later and had steak fajita and I was not impressed. They do provide great service. I would suggest checking on the unisex bathroom regularly. With the amount of food that the customers have in... More

The food was good, the chips and salsa above average. However, we ordered the queso, which was nothing like what we are used to in Texas! For starters, we don't serve queso with plantain chip slices! And I think they used a different cheese. Not what we were expecting. The server was not that helpful nor friendly. When we asked... More

My husband and I ate dinner here on July 24 in the lounge. There are several TV's on running sports with closed captioning. This is an open space into the restaurant and loud - not uncomfortably so, just not muted or dampened in any way. Low key theming, comfortable chairs at smaller tables. We had to ask for menus and...
