“Get in sooner rather than later - Acland St Cantina is the next big thing”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

Far from being just another new Mexican eatery serving average fare and cashing in on the trend, Acland St Cantina is the real deal. The menu features both classic Mexican cuisine and some other less common delights – all of which are fresh, delicious and affordable. The dishes have obviously been crafted with great care and attention and exhibit a degree of innovation and authenticity lacking in many of the Mexican restaurants opening up all over Melbourne.

“Great Mexican. Friendly service. Bit pricey.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

Not your standard Mexican restaurant. The food - generally served on share plates - resembles nothing at Taco Bill's. Much higher standard here.

Lots of unfamiliar words on the menu - something restaurants in Melbourne seem to love, to look all fancy - but our waitress was a great guide.

The fish tacos and the peanut butter ice cream dessert were particularly good.

Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
