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.

“Great Mexican Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

Great Mexican restaurant, different to the usual crop of Mexicans that have appeared in London. Has more traditional dishes, as well as some of the usual one might expect. Service was excellent, friendly and helpful staff. When I was in two minds about what to order for a main, the waitress brought me a sample of the sauce that accompanies one of the dishes so I could try it before ordering! The guacamole which is made in front of you is excellent, I would go back just for that. If you like Mexican and havent been, you must try it.

“Interesting Mexican restaurant in,the heart of the West End”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Finfing a restaurant with a table at 7.30 pm in the west end in a real challenge... anyway we ended up to this mexicain restaurant having in mind to eat Indian foods.... real life. Well, very noisy place, but frindly staff with surprising cuisine. They are making the guacamole in front of you, the cocktails are great, the starters mix mexican tapas was very good, le main courses unusual but acceptable. Good winesnfrom the world : we had New Zeland and italian white wines. The bill was reasonnable for London and the west end

“Excellent Mexican Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

Really fantastic service, the food was so good, I wanted to keep trying things. But my highest praise is this: My biggest enjoyment in food is desert, I can't help it. The deserts I saw served at another table coming in looked absolutely delicious (a brownie with ice cream and churros) and I had decided that I would definitely try to save some stomach space for them. By the end of the meal, I didn't want to have desert, I wanted to try and maintain the taste of my appetizers and main course for as long as possible. My favourite Mexican restaurant so far by far!
