Clean, friendly, good service. That's about it. I can't believe anyone would say the food is good, much less authentic! If you know Mexican food AT ALL, you will kick yourself on the way out of this poor excuse for a cantina. Stay away!

My husband and I had dinner and Margaritas at this restaurant 1-20-13. The Margaritas and Mexican food were excellent! The guacamole was prepared tableside. The server, Coleen was excellent! She used gloves to ensure cleanliness and two large avocados rather than the usual one that you receive at other restaurants. We dined with friends and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We look forward to returning soon!

I love the table side guacamole. My favorite entree is the Camarones Diablo - 6 huge shrimp with some bite. Yum, Yum! Check out this new Mexican restaurant. Great service, great deco.

I was able to stop in at Cinco Amigos Mexican Cantina this past Friday night 01-11-13. To say the very least, it was busy, busy. I was alone, so I sat at the bar (bar seats 15 plus people and was almost full with people eating and drinking). I was greeted by the bartender and had a drink in hand and complimentary chips and salsa within the first few minutes of me sitting down. I was able to order my food soon after that. It came very quickly and piping hot. I had a delicious chicken burrito with sour cream, fresh guacamole, pico de gallo, and a light queso sauce glazed on top. I also had sides of rice and refried beans. Both were excellent as well. Even though the restaurant was busy, the service was exceptional and friendly. The restaurant was sparkly clean along with the restrooms. A great atmosphere in general. The prices were very reasonable as well. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with my visit to Cinco Amigos. I'm super excited to have a quality mexican restaurant option here in southwest Florida. I will be returning to Cinco Amigos Mexican Cantina very soon. I really enjoyed myself there and had great food in the interim.

Cinco Amigos was a truly wonderful find. This is a standalone locally owned and operated restaurant. The service, food and atmosphere are all superb.
Our server, Marc, took very good care of us. We started with two appetizers that turned out to be a great deal of food. No problem here with the portion size. The Guacomole Hecho Meesilla was very good. It was prepared tableside by Marc. You can’t get any fresher than that! Next was the 7 Capa Inmersion. This was yet again very ample in size very tasty.
Because of the amount of food in the two appetizers we chose to share an order of Chili Rellenos. It also was more than enough for two. The sauce was very good and the cheeses delicious.
The interior of the restaurant is very attractive and conducive to fine Mexican dining. The entire operation was extremely clean and well maintained. We were there at Christmas time and they had appropriate decorations that were not overdone.
Highly recommended for Mexican dining. Great service and very fine food at reasonable prices.
