There is nothing better than enjoying a pitcher of margaritas, your dogs at your feet, your feet in the sand....A wonderful, island-style casual spot!!

“good food in a dive atmosphere”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

if you need a break from all of the coast type food, this mexican will give it to you (you can still get fish tacos and enchiladas). atmosphere is somewhat of a dive.

“Good change of pace”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We wanted something besides the usual fish, so we went to Cantina Captiva. The atmosphere was a bit cramped, and it had a bit of a dive bar feel, but not really in a bad way. My daughter had quesadillas and enjoyed them. The nachos were hot and good. My son had a burrito and I had a chimicanga. It was well made with not too much tortilla and fried just right. It was a rice/bean based mexican, not really a Tex Mex style, but still done very well. The wait staff was attentive, if a bit slow. Some folks might find Cantina Captiva a bit limted on space, but I thought it had character. I'd go again.

“Horrible Experience”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

We were sat right away. Then it went downhill from there. Our server forgot to refill our drinks, only brought part of our order out, forgot our sides of sour cream and jalapenos. Small amount of food for the price. The burrito was mostly filled with rice than meat and average tacos for the price. When we asked to speak to a manager no one was available. Even though this is the only Mexican restaurant around, it is not worth a visit.
