They have one of the best Barbacoa I've ever tried, better than many in Mexico! It was very "clean" (not greasy) and with a smooth odor.

I have been to La Cantina many times and I'm never disappointed! My go to is the barbacoa quesadilla but the fish tacos are also amazing! The service is excellent. Joy has served us most times and is always so friendly and caters to our...needs with a lovely attitude! Aruna is also very attentive. Thanks La Cantina, keep up the stellar work 🤠More

Overall the meal was good so try it out but but ultimately it's food truck nibbles for a premium price. There is no waiter/waitress essentially so you get your own water from a canteen and order up front before seating yourself so not a typical...restaurant.More

Good food at a decent price. Ordered from counter and they bring it out to your table. This was perfect first meal when we arrived as we did not want to wait long to eat after a long travel day. Chips and Guacamole were delicious...and we had 3 tacos and quesadilla which tasted good as well. I recommend this place for a quick and good meal at affordable price!More

Looking for something different, we decided to come here as there was so much choice and we are SO glad we did. The food was delicious, having a range between the 3 of us we experienced a lot of it! The guacamole mountain was perfect...for the nachos and everything else left us full! The staff were friendly and efficient, getting food out quickly to ensure a quick turnaround to maximise the space they have. I'd highly recommend coming here - I think we'll be back before the end of our holiday!More

Horrible food and no service. Went there in hope for a family meal. Burritos for the kids and tacos and margs for the adults. For the kids, ordered rice and burrito - rice was dry and tasted like preservatives. The burrito was dry and bland....Sauce all over the outside so unable to pick up and eat with hands. Tacos - CRAP! Also dry. As for the ‘margaritas’ only served frozen, no fresh. Ended up walking out, without the margarita and went next door to KFC. Go elsewhere - this place was a dud!More

They do so much right here! Delicious tacos, frozen margs and a swift service. The food is really tasty and reasonably priced. Yes you can sit down and eat, but it’s fast service and in/out. So not much of a ‘dining experience’ if you’re looking...for meal rather than a quick dinner. But I’d definitely recommend coming here!More

This place is not great. The food is plentiful. I’ve eaten here a few times. It’s hit or miss . Sometimes the food doesn’t seem fresh. and favors aren’t consistent . Always busy. The service seems overwhelmed and last time we were there not very...helpful. I got eye roles for asking for some chips 😞. If you really need a taco it’s there, but I’d definitely go for something else in the village.More
