“Great place, even better than before”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

I was always a huge fan of the prior Baja but the new ownership has elevated this place to a new level. Slightly different menu but kept the favorites. Service is top notch and margheritas perfect. I was shocked to see such a creative dessert menu with a Mexican take on bananas foster! Will definitely go back.

“Same place, different name and owner”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

Oh, how we missed the Baja Cafe. Such a local hang out and great for two for one margeritas on Wednesday night. It's reopened as the Baja Cantina and although it's been cleaned up a bit, it's the same employees, same atmosphere. Unfortunately, it's the same mediocre food. Why they kept the same kitchen staff and menu is a mystery. Fun local place, but there's much better Mexican (if you can call it that) food elsewhere.

“Glad to see you back!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

The place, formerly the Baja Café, has reopened as the Baja Cantina with new management, some fresh paint and decoration, and some improvement in the interior layout. Pretty much the same menu and a nice tequila assortment. Food was good, if predictable and portions were more than adequate. They'll be adding specials and some deserts and should do fine once they get "re-discovered."

“Restored Quality to a Previous Theme”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Thankfully there is a new owner at what once was Baja Cafe in Boca Raton. For the last two years the place had slipped in quality under an owner who had assumed management after the original owner moved her business back north. Now under the name Baja Cantina, the new owner, Richard, has restored the quality to this establishment. We have been there twice to eat now and have been very impressed with the quality, freshness, and wonderful attitude of the staff. I encourage those of you like us who lost faith in what once was a great establishment to revisit this new wonderful rendition!. -Brad Ducoat Boca Raton
