I really enjoyed my meal here! Started with the nachos, came with gauc, salsa and sour cream. Then had chicken burritos, which were really good too! Except small for the price paid...

If you want to try Mexican food, don't even bother going to La Cantinita. It may be appealing since there aren't many options for mexican in the area. But the food is not that great and the service is the worst I've ever had. Been there twice. In the first time I've tried some dishes and the experience was not that bad, apart from the service.

The second time went there with a large group of friends and we were treated really badly just because we only wanted Margaritas and nachos (the rest of the restaurant wasn't even full). The waiters talked down to us everytime we spoke to them and were never helpful. Also they took a long time just to get us the bill. This time, not even the Margaritas were OK. Since we were a large group, what was served was mostly juice with ice. The service is so bad that you shouldn't bother at all. It's a shame since there are no other options around for mexican.

We just stumbled on this clean and bright restaurant. Half the tables were full. The service was more attentive than many places and very friendly. The quesidilla pollo and chimichangas were both very good. Much better than typical US. The margaritas were good tho small. Overall, an excellent meal and a great break in cuisine.

I already had tried mexican food in the States and it was great and honestely what i tried yesterday at La Cantinita wasn't bad at all, really liked it! the food was good and the margaritas too. We had margaritas, nachos for apetizer, chimichangas (chicken and chilli con carne), and for dessert fried banana slices with coconut icecream, it was grea! the food was tasty, and the waitress was really nice. Maybe since it was lunch time, it was really quiet and no orders were mixed or anything, but maybe the decoration could be a little more happier, more mexican ;) The price was ok too i think, €35 for two people, nothing much =)
