Description: Cantina Laredo offers something completely new, a sophisticated approach to traditional Mexican cuisine. Our ethos at Cantina Laredo is to blend old with new by using contemporary and traditional techniques to bring a modern twist to the authentic flavours from all regions of Mexico. The menu is a culinary exploration of Mexico’s regional cuisines in search of Mexico’s most incredible flavours. Traditional and contemporary techniques combine to produce an intriguing menu that pays homage to authentic Mexican flavours. Emphasis is on the bold and intense flavours with simple presentation using high quality ingredients. Dishes are authentic, but not traditional with a modern approach to recreate classic dishes and invent new ones. The menu has been designed to create a sophisticated, yet informal and relaxed dining experience. There is no set procedure on ordering, dishes are designed to be shared at the table or enjoyed individually.

We loved Cantina - the Margeritas were large enough to swim in (and you really need to try both the frozen and the on-the-rocks ones to see which you prefer); the food was tasty and zingy, good quality and great to share; the service was helpful and pleasant.

The service at Cantina was very good with friendly helpful staff and the food was quick to arrive.
The Margaritas were wonderful - personal favorite the frozen one - a must have and went really well with the food that had my tastebuds tingling.
Was surprised that it wasn't totally full on Sunday and would recommend to groups in particular so you can try as many of the items on the menu as possible.
Do have the dip that is made at your table and the quesadillo's were also very good.

The space is vast, with absolutely no Mexican atmosphere whatsoever...feels like an old branch of Foyle's bookstore. The food is nice enough, and the mole sauce delicious. Small portions make it poor value for money. The service Is very efficient and friendly.

The food at the restaurant is simply the best mexican food I have had in the UK. I would strongly recommend this restaurant for a different experience that sets it apart from many other London restaurants. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The guacamole made at the table and the tequila choice help make this somewhere I will definitely go back to.
