Me and the wife loved this place. Seems like it has 2 different functions. You can go in and drink and enjoy some night life but inside at the bar. But for less hustle and bustle you can sit outside and enjoy the warmth and...More

I've loved this place since I was little. The have the best enchiladas I've ever had, and their Enchiladas Suizas are probably in my top 5 favorite foods of all time. The service can be slow parking can be a hassle, but other than that,...More

Baja Cantina has been there for years and is a fabulous place to stop for good traditional Mexican dishes and awesome Margaritas and a long list of beer. A day experiencing Venice Beach has to include Baja Cantina. Talk about Dinner and a Floor Show!...More

When we lived in Marina del Rey 20+ years ago we were a Friday regular and loved the authentic Mexican food, the robust margarita's and the bottomless chips and salsa. We had the opportunity to come back for a local visit and were pleasantly surprised...More

I love mole and the mole here is as good as the mole I've enjoyed near Mexico City. The food was fabulous. We did take-out fajitas one night and dined in another night. This is a little part of Mexico in California. Very authentic and...More

Stumbled upon this on our way back to the hotel so we decided to try it and so glad we did. Food was wonderful and so were desserts. Would definitely return if we weren't leaving tomorrow!

Baja Cantina is a superior dining experience, especially for fans of Mexican Cuisine. If they had Oscars for Margaritas, this place would win every year. The Mexican cuisine is as good or better than any other place in LA. Their Monday night special spare ribs...More

Good food and friendly staff. Margaritas were a hit. The drinks were more expensive than the meal. Enjoyed it two nights.

Great selection of Mexican Food, good beer selection, and fast, friendly service! The chips and salsa has always been tasty, but this last time they really turned up the heat on the salsa! If you like spicy, you will give it a big thumbs up!...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
