Description: Carlos Cantina & Grill offers a great location & atmosphere with delicious authentic Mexican cuisine. This busy restaurant in the heart of Sidney has been open at the same location for many years & enjoys an outstanding reputation for good food & a loyal following of clientele. The business boasts a consistent top internet restaurant ratings rank, such as the Urban Spoon & Groupon, within the Victoria area for Mexican food. Opening hours are reasonable & the kitchen is organized & fully equipped. Lovely outdoor seating, that takes advantage of the beautiful evenings in lovely Sidney By the Sea, including the popular Sidney Summer Markets, that run Thursday evenings during the summer season right outside its door.

This small cafe offers the best Mexican Food I have ever had! You are always greeted with "How are you doing my friend" and this is one restaurant where you do truly feel like a friend. The owner is always willing to chat and go over the menu with you, and he makes one of the best Margaritas ever! This is also one of the few Mexican restaurants that you go to where the staff actually speak spanish.

This is a small cafe and if you are going during peak hours do phone and make a reservation so you're not disappointed. But don't get mad if they do not have space available. Best time to go is during non peak hours, we prefer to do a late lunch/early dinner and have never had a problem finding a table without a reservation. There is a small outdoor dining area that has one or two tables, but the weather can be unpredictable.

Best items I would have to say are the Chimichangas or anything with their Mole sauce! They have the best Mole sauce around! Entrees offer large portions and vary in price, but $15 a person will get you a huge meal. Approx $3 for chips and salsa. They also offer homemade desserts.

This is a great place to eat and have a good time!

A cute little restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. The food is very good, really enjoy the tortilla soup!! The owner is friendly and outgoing, it's a good little place to go when you're in the mood for good Mexican cuisine.

A great find in Sidney. Pollo en mole was flavourful and very tender. The rest of the menu looks promising also, but I can't imagine ordering anything else!

This is a small Mexican restaurant with a couple of tables outside on the sidewalk as well as a few inside. The food was very tasty and well-priced. The waitress was friendly and knowledgable and we had a very nice meal.
