Description: Cantina is a lively Mexican restaurant serving traditional and TexMex food in the Aspen area. Our menu offers everything from enchiladas, carnitas and carne asada to ceviche and wings. All of our food is fresh and prepared in-house daily, and we have daily specials that are always a favorite. We also have a fun happy hour atmosphere, with great drink and food specials. One of the most unique things about Cantina is that we serve our own infused tequila, and have the widest selection of tequila in the area. With the largest seating capacity of any restaurant in Aspen and with four distinct rooms, Cantina is a great place to host your event. We host everything from weddings, rehearsal dinners, corporate events, college and employee events, to Superbowl and New Year’s Eve parties. We can accommodate groups up to 334 people, and have a custom-made dance floor with audio/video facilities for you to enjoy. For the sports lovers, we have plenty of HD televisions and a giant HD screen, so we’re always showing the game.

Great food with great friendly service. We had the fish tacos which were filling and well seasoned. Food came out fast and the waiter Mikey was around to make sure we had everything we needed. Good selections of margaritas, we will be back for sure.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We'll go back. My lovely bride had fish tacos that she describes as delicious. Said her margarita was tops. I had part of a great big, too big taco salad that was wonderful. Did I say it was too big? The place filled up for lunch. We were lucky to get a table at the windows facing out to the intersection on Main - excellent for people watching. Prices were right for a good lunch in pricey Aspen. I do recommend.

“it was okay, but we were not blown away”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

the margs, street tacos, and the tamales were awesome, but the guac had that store-bought look where it was not a fresh green color.

Not so green guac.- sorry you didn't enjoy the guac. We make it completely from scratch daily as we do with our salsas, sauces etc......we have checked to make sure it's as fresh as can possibly be. So glad you enjoyed the rest of your dishes and margs... Thank you for your review

We enjoyed our meals, margaritas & great service. Super great value. Their chips & salsa are addictive. Recommended by a local, we were happy with the overall experience.

“Mexican flair!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Great Mexican food and pleasant staff. The atmosphere takes me back to my Taos days. I highly recommend it. I've never had a bad meal at the Cantina and they make the BEST Margaritas!
