“Terrible food at the Cantina”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

The Cantina is part of Mexico in the World Showcase at Epcot. It is for the quick Mexican bite. A couple of years ago the menu was quite all right. So this year we returned. Unfortunately, we could not find any positive points: the food was terrible, the sauses inedible (that really strange for a Mexican restaurant), the margarita average and there were no seats available so we had to sit on the ground. And quite expensive too. Advice: don't go there.

“Better choices in the World Showcase”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

I've given La cantina de san angel 2 chances and it leaves me disappointed. The food quality is just below average. The nachos are typical theme park junk, the chicken tacos were ok. Location is best thing going for this place.

“A yearly tradition”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

We visit Epcot every Fall, and Cantina de San Angel is always a stop for us, atleast once every visit. We love the nachos! Margaritas are terrific as are the views for Illuminations at night. If you are using the dining plan, this is a terrific Counter Service!

“Better than expected!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Great Mexican food for a theme park. Epcot does it right! My friend and I got the cheese empanadas- they were amazing! We also loved their guacamole- fresh and not too "oniony"! Frozen margarita pretty much a slushy and weak, but refreshing nonetheless.

“Good Mexican at Epcot”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

Family with a picky eater stopped to try the food here at lunch. The picky eater was very impressed with the beef tacos. We also had the nachos and beef sandwich. Better mexican food than I've had in authentic restaurants. Worth the visit.
