My wife and I visited the Balboa area of Newport Beach last weekend. We spent the afternoon of Cinco d Mayo at the Cabo Cantina. We had excellent service and what a great atmosphere to hang out. They have good cold cerveza, excellent food, and delicious margaritas. The atmosphere is fun and loud, with beer pong going on and corn... More

If you need a place to get a quick drink and something to eat, then Cabo Cantina will probably fit the bill. Unless you're a local, one visit is enough. While the servers are very pleasant the food is mediocre at best.

My buddy and I ordered some wings for a snack. They were quick to serve and tasted great. Bar had a great view of the beach... More

We visited this restaurant while vacationing in Newport Beach. The staff was friendly, the drinks were strong, the food was excellent, and the price was reasonable. We went during happy hour and enjoyed two-for-one drinks. They have an extensive margarita menu.

It was loud as the games were playing on the screens, but the food was fast and the drinks were great. It is not fancy, the prices were moderate.

We had rented a beach home, just down from the bar. Our first day we went to take a walk and got to cabo , which was our first bar we came too, and was our last stop for the night. They offer extra large margaritas, for a small up charge. They were good, but a little weak for my... More

The restaurant is located b the beach and is always full of people! It's very beautiful but a bit loud with all the TV's at their highest volume! The beer and margaritas are great. The service is OK.
