We went here twice! First time I asked for the beef fajitas, I asked for them to be spicy and it was really nice. The sour cream, guacamole and salsa sauces were homemade and I loved them! The second time I went I got their speciality which was the chilli rjo and it was the hottest thing on the menu.... More

Definitely worth booking this small, bustling and authentic Mexican place. Broad selection of authentic dishes with free tortillas and hot sauce on arrival to test your chili mettle. Warm welcome made better by compulsory sombrero photo opps !

This place is a must if you enjoy Mexican food..We had the mixed fajitas....absolutely gorgeous..the salsa and guacamole were definitely home made. Emma's Cantina is located in the old town off the beaten track from the harbour restaurants. If your are not sure how to find it ask a taxi driver?? You won't be disappointed..
