Slow service, tasteless chicken wings, teaspoon of pulled pork and tasteless chimichanga with wilted gem lettuce. This restaurant needs more than 241 cocktails to entice people! Avoid!!

The lunchtime meal deal of a main, side and drink for £7 is terrific value. Staff always seem to be friendly and efficient as well. This is my go-to lunch spot in Southampton when I fancy something more substantial than a sandwich from Tesco!

Cantina was the city of Southampton's original Mexican restaurant. Our much loved neighborhood Cantina is a firm favourite amongst our army of loyal Amigos, for its rustic charm, freshly prepared authentic Mexican food and laid back atmosphere. Celebrating ten years of being at the heart of the Bedford Place buzzing bar and restaurant community, we've marked this milestone with a new look that is respectful to our status as a firm favourite on the local dining scene. The striking new decor, and vibrant atmosphere along with our brand new menu make Cantina one you definitely do not want to miss.
