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.

“wonderful location, food and service”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

We stopped in to Cantina Laredo without a reservation on Thursday evening. We were seated at a cozy booth in the back, and Audreia was our fabulous server. She delivered ice water, delicious fish tacos and a mexican apple pie that were fresh, hot and imaginatively displayed on the plate (and skillet for the pie). A super location in Covent Garden, Very fresh, creative food.

“Impeccable service and delicious food! Thank you”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We booked a table at Cantina Laredo for my friends hen do.
There were 22 of us in total and I can honestly say the night could not have been better. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate us and our various dietary requirements. We were allowed to decorate the table and were given an area where we would not disturb the other guests.
The food was delicious, the service was impeccable and the cocktails were simply amazing. All of the guests commented on how successful the night was.
Look out for the guacamole - made at the table and is delicious!

Thanks again Cantina!

“Fantastic lunch”
Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile

What a great find. Coming up to London for a show this afternoon, we found Cantina Laredo on trip advisor and were not disappointed. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, fantastic fresh food bursting with flavour, and lovely cocktails. Clearly a popular place, and now we know why. Recommend the guacamole made at the table, the sharing platter and the El Cubana and margueritas very highly indeed. Will definitely go back.
