A local canteen at heart, we are all about fresh, local and seasonal produce. True to our name our food is influenced by Mediterranean cuisine with a modern Australian twist. A fully licensed venue, our extensive wine list features a range of exciting domestic and international drops, as well as lots of cocktails of course!

“Terrific tapas!”
Reviewed July 14, 2012 via mobile

We went to Cantina with a small group of 5 and ordered progressive tapas off the menu to share (about 4 starters, 3 mains and dessert). Each dish was incredible!!! They were different and special. The wine was equally amazing. The service was brilliant and the manager had impeccable wine knowledge. Couldn't fault this restaurant which is a must visit in Perth. Being from Melbourne we were blown away by the food which is on par with some of Melbourne's best restaurants.

“Consistently excellent”
Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

Breakfast, lunch or dinner- Cantina is great! There are also BYO evenings.

Love the coffee, the duck liver parfait, the gnocchi and pasta.

Service is always knowledgeable and efficient.

“At last amazing food and service in Perth”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

What an amazing find on Beaufort Street at inner city suburb, Mt Lawley. We shared the small eats like the smooth as silk duck liver parfait, salumi platter with excellent chorizo and morcilla (black pudding), accompanied by house made pickled cucumbers and carrots. The highlight had to be the baby goat braised with pearl barley topped with tangy lemon yogurt. Even the brussel sprouts were to die for ... nice n crispy on the outside topped with pine nuts and chilli jam. We will be sending all our friends and talking about this place upon our return to Queensland. The service here was impeccable and knowledgeable. The perfect evening. Thank you.

“Fantastic breakfast at Cantina”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

After our son played football on Sunday morning we went to nearby Beaufort St to find a cafe for breakfast. We don't know the area very well but knew there was plenty of choice along there. We chose Cantina 663 purely because it was packed and the food we saw on the plates looked good.

Great choice - the coffee was fantastic (great silky milk guys) and the food was all well cooked and presented and in good quantities. Service attentive and knowledgable without being patronising.

$65 for 3 of us including a second round of coffees. Not cheap but worth every cent.
