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.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

I ate at this restaurant on 5th December with four friends and again on the 18th December I held my Senior Team Christmas Event. The restaurant (Tarin) were extremely accommodating when trying to organise the event for 18 people. We had the Doritos Mariachi band at the restaurant and again the team were great in supporting us.

The food is outstanding, clearly prepared with fresh ingredients and well presented. The Guacamole is to die for. All food on both occasions came to the table quickly and the staff are a credit to the management, always friendly and helpful.

Every guest I have taken to this restaurant has commented on how good the whole experience was. I have eaten in many London restaurants and several Mexican and i can genuinely say this place ranks amongst the best i have been to.

“tasty, pricey, busy”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Stumbled across this place last night after Jersey Boys. We waited for about 45 minutes for a table. The desk guy was pretty good, he kept us informed of how many were ahead of us and the fact nobody was leaving, so sorry, etc.

Dinner was excellent. They make a guacamole dip right in front of you, that's a pretty good deal. The rest was very tasty. However, the portions are on the small side, and you have to order side dishes, no rice & beans come standard! Makes it a little expensive by the time you've finished.

Overall, not bad. Not sure I'd go back, a little too fru-fru for me. Great place to take your date & impress her, though.
