“Great to chill out and people watch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Walking along hermosa beach we wanted a place to sit outside, eat and drink and people watch.

Checked the menu of this place out, within our budget.

Service is excellent, waiter is on top of things, busers are present refilling water and chips salsa.

$6 beer, $9 burritos, $15 fajitas.

Food came out really fast.

The food was pretty good, as good as it gets basic mexican.

Hanging out in the sun, ocean breeze and people watching is the highlight.

“delicious food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Our service was excellent and the food was delicious. With 8 people at our table, we all really enjoyed our meals. This is a restaurant which values customer service. We had a group of 10 and we nicely accommodated. Wait staff was attentive enough and we received drinks and food in a timely manner. I will definately return to Cantina Real!

“Light Mexican Fare”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2013

Bottomless chips & salsa! Great start! We ordered the chicken fajitas -- they don't serve fajitas for two, but there was enough to share! A friend ordered the enchiladas -- one bean, one cheese -- and said they were excellent! Good prices, good food.

“great location for people watching”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Food was good but don't be fooled by 'Happy hour ' prices as this is not what you pay, even so the prices were very good compared to UK prices. Several customers had dogs tied up outside. The waitress made a huge fuss of them patting and playing with them, not sure how hygienic this is......

“Extremely Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

We have frequented this eatery 4 times now. The first three visits were good to the very good. My last visit, however, was memorable in a way you do not want. I ordered the "Special"which was Carnitas, which the server recommended. When the meal came, the Carnitas were dry and old, like they had been cooked the day before and had been sitting out overnight. Anyone just viewing the entree would be able to see the carnitas were uneatable. The plate should have never made it to my table. I took a bite just to see if it tasted as bad as it looked....Yup! Had my daughter taste as well. She took it out of her mouth it was so bad.
