We have eaten at many many Mexican places, both in Oregon and California. This little restaurant ranks right up with the best. The food is amazingly delicious, fresh and savory, and very reasonable price-wise. The service is excellent and the view beautiful. The ambiance could be better, but once you take a bite of what ever you ordered, you won't notice.

This is real Mexican - not American Mexican. No cheddar cheese. No rice. No giant tub of chips and salsa. The menu is not extensive but covers all the bases. Homemade everything. The best guacamole I've had in a restaurant ever, served with chips made from tortillas made in house. Yummy! The service was excellent and the view is lovely. When the restaurant is filled with locals, not tourists; you know you've found a winner! We'll go back every trip to Astoria,

If we don't eat here at least weekly I start to have withdrawals! Love their homemade tortillas, the salsa, the guacamole (the make it fresh when you order it)...everything is so good! (They're also great for ordering food to go)

If you are looking for atmosphere, or ambience, skip this joint. But if you let your taste buds take the drivers seat when it comes to food, then let your buds drive you to this amazing local favorite! My wife is Mexican, and grew up in Mexico, and now lives on white-ville North Oregon coast. She craves this place because it takes like home! The staff is super friendly, and the food literally is so great. If you want authentic delicious Mexican food, take a drive to check out this wonderful family owned restaurant!

La Cabana may look like a fireworks stand from the outside but inside you will find authentic Mexican food cooked to order. Sitting just south of the Old Young's Bay Bridge, this restaurant has one of the best views in the area looking out to the bay and the Columbia River. You can dine inside or out but it is usually windy outside. The interior decoration and tables and chairs is a mix of this and that with slightly sloping bar stools at the panoramic window. But it is clean. And, the food is the best. The guacamole is excellent--made fresh when ordered and mashed not pureed. The chips are homemade and just as good as the guacamole. This is enough for a group of 4. I've tried their three platters and found them to be excellent. The corn tortillas are hand made and fresh. My husband likes the Burrito Mojado that comes with a choice of meat and is covered in their own enchilada sauce. I also liked the Trio--one of their special Dishes. I always bring home some leftovers from their large servings. The service is always attentive and pleasant. As La Cabana gets more popular, you may need to wait for a table. They have take-out if you are in a hurry.
