Dropped in on a walk on a cold winters walk to be greeted with brilliant live music and a wonderful atmosphere. We are locals but the Cantina never fails to disappoint, in this case with one of the best doorstep sandwiches (chicken) which we shared.

We visited Cantina last Friday morning. It was a last minute decision and having to choose between Brewers Fayre and this establishment, there really was no contest. As soon as I walked in there was a lovely ambience and the specials caught my eye. I...More

This place is local to us and is really well situated for a nice walk near the gorgeous Goodrington sands. Every single time I’ve been whether it’s in the week, evening or weekend it’s packed and the owners have definitely got a little gold mine!...More

We are a friendly, family-run cafe/bar/restaurant set on the edge of beautiful Youngs Park. Just a stones throw from Goodrington Sands Beach. We welcome dogs and everyone else! Our food is freshly cooked from raw ingredients. From doorstep sandwiches to our famous hake and handcut chips. Fresh seafood from nearby Brixham market feature often on our specials boards along with meat and produce from surrounding farms. We love being here at Cantina and we really hope you'll like us too.
