Wonderful little tacos with an authentic taste. The beef is my fave ( a little spicy kick to it), but the pork options are tender and delicious too. Wash it down with Jarritos!

The menu is largely what you would expect - garden variety Mexican dishes. But really good food. We enjoyed it and will be back.

This is the second time I am ordering at this restaurant. I ordered each time a bowl -deconstructed burrito with mexican rice, mashed black beans, salad, feta,sour cream, tortilla chips and chicken tinga with potatoes and onions. The taste of anything all together was amazing....Also ordered 2 fish tacos which are very small but very tasty.More

Line up (always there) moves very fast. Service is very fast. OMG the food is just delicious! We had the Burrito (chicken) and Quesadilla - both were delicious and most welcome after a day of biking. Would definitely eat here again!

Had a lovely time with my girlfriends. The food was on point, our server, Chandler was an absolute delight, and the atmosphere was the cherry on top. Will definitely be back on our next trip to Nelson.

My girlfriend and I went there during the weekend of August 8th, 2020. I ordered 2 Rock Fish tacos and 2 Beef Pasilla tacos. My girlfriend ordered 2 Jackfruit tacos. She absolutely loved her Jackfruit tacos and I equally loved my Rockfish tacos. The Beef...Pasilla tacos had great flavour but the beef was a bit dry. The Rockfish tacos were amazing! They were crunchy, flavourful and fun to eat. My girlfriend commented that the flavours of the Jackfruit tacos were outstanding. When we return I'll skip the Beef Pasilla ones but the other 2 will be ordered for sure! I should mention that during these Covid-19 times their precautions were decent. The staff were wearing masks and the lines well managed.More

Ordered some take out for lunch from La Cantina and it was excellent! Our meals were delicious and would highly recommend having a meal here. Can’t wait to go back one day. One of the best guacamole I have had in a long time!

Ordered take out for dinner, it filled us up but was a little disappointing. Definitely not the best Mexican food I've had in the past. Friendly, quick service.

Friendly service and excellent food! Authentic Mexican at it's best. Bring and empty belly. Me and the mrs's had to be rolled out of there .....cause we ate so much.

We drove up to Whistler and wanted a no-fuss, quick dinner that was healthy and delicious. We enjoyed our food and service. Portions were large. I will definitely return the next time I go to Whistler.
