Well yahoo and thank you! We sure do like getting reviews like this one! And I think our Mexican tortilla soup is like stateside Deli chicken soup, good for when you're feeling ill and yummy when you're feeling well! glad you enjoyed. I'd suggest next visit you try our clam chowder. not very objective coming from me, but it IS... More

We heard about this place from someone staying at Wyndham. We expected just a little hole in the wall place, but were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious, service was great and portions were very generous-we all came home with leftovers! The only negative is its on a busy highway, so if you sit outside, it's kind of noisy. We...

We are so very appreciative of the referral/recommendations you Wyndham members give to each other about us! It's apparently a very happy, chatty, friendly atmosphere over there! Thanks so much for the lovely shout out. More

Went here on a recommendation from another guest at Worldmark resort. We arrived at perfect time of 5;30pm, not busy yet. Got seated right away by very friendly staff. Food arrived within minutes and was piping hot. Everything was delicious! Highly, highly recommend this little place and having reservations if eating after 6pm. Only downside is the noisy traffic from... More

They say the best referrals are by word-of-mouth and Coral Baja guests are the proof in the pudding. Doubly glad to hear that not only did you enjoy the food and service but you came in from a recommendation of a neighbor in your resort. Hope you try us for breakfast and/or lunch in the future, thanks for the post! More

We had a chicken Marsala dinner which was phenomenal. The portion was so large we had it for dinner another evening. The staff were pleasant and the service was very good.

Delighted with your contentment of your meal. If you're chicken lovers, might I suggest the Chicken Saltimbocca next time (currently on our "daily specials" board), as well as our chicken Piccata, which isn't on the menu or the specials board at this time, but it's one of my favorites, and they'll make it on request!

I am not sure this is the right restaurant - it did not look anything like the picture. However, the prawn dinner we shared was well enough for two and definitely a five-star meal. We wished we had tried them sooner so we could have tried more dishes. Excellent service, not a good location at all. Road noise very loud... More

Eva-Marie A, Owner at Sardina Cantina, responded to this review

So pleased you enjoyed your entree! Sorry about the road noise, this time of year I can only suggest to make reservations for dinner as we do have limited seating and we can place you inside where it's quieter. There's rarely a need for reservations for either breakfast or lunch, which might be an option for next time. And I... More

My wife and I arrived a day early for a business meeting and were looking for a relaxed dinner with authentic food. Sardina Cantina was a great choice. The food was prepared with fresh ingredients and seasoned appropriate to the dish. The natchos were the best I have ever had(coming from a Texan). They were piled high in a bowl... More

Every time we visit San Jose we go to Sardina Cantina at least once. The food is very good and the atmosphere is always fun and upbeat. Lots of expats go there and you can speak English and pay in dollars if you want to. The marguerites are really good and strong. Always a guaranteed good evening.

We stayed nearby and became addicted to their amazing breakfast burritos. Super friendly family owned restaurant. Appears to be a favorite of local condo owners as it's always busy at breakfast (but note that they don't open super early - check the hours before you go). Loved that you could get fresh italian sausage with your eggs. Their breakfast scramble... More

We're so pleased you enjoyed your breakfasts with us! Our emphasis on the menu is seafood but we do serve pasta, Mexican food, chicken dishes, salads, soups, steaks etc. and hailing originally from New York, (I'm kind of picky about my Italian food), was ecstatic to learn that our chef can make a chicken Parmesan that rivals any New York...
