We had a delightful dinner at Cantina Beach. The views and atmosphere take you worlds away from reality. The margaritas and table-side guacamole were fantastic. The service for the evening we went was spot on. The fish tacos are very impressive, and the other items we ordered were about what you might expect. We enjoyed it so much we are... More

We ate lunch at the Cantina yesterday for Mother's Day. I have read a few articles about this restaurant and wanted to give it a try. The meal and the margaritas are way overpriced for mediocre Mexican food. I really would not mind paying for GREAT food but this is nothing special at all. I was quite surprised for a... More

After our initial plans fell through, I was happy that we ended up walking to the Ritz on Key Biscayne. IT IS BEAUTIFUL We walked through the lobby and headed... More

Seemed pricey for Mexican food but considering the location and view it was not that bad. Happy hour margarita $10 and tacos $6 a piece. They were small but packed with very good shredded beef. Waiter was very good. Loved the decor and views hard to beat.

Cantina has great food in a beautiful location. They have gluten free items marked on the menu. We ate there twice during our stay. Each time it seemed liked they were understaffed. The staff was great but obviously very busy. The cushions on the chairs inside had a bad smell, probably from the hundreds of wet bathing suits. We sat... More

Cantina Beach is located on Key Biscayne at Ritz Carlton Key. The décor is tropical wonderful and the weather is great. The staff is good and so is the menu. Most of the customers are tourists, or staying at the hotel. I had ice tea , pulled beef tamales with tomatillo sauce tapas.
