This was our first time here. The views from the outdoor seating and service were great. Grady was very helpful. The food was pretty good but was a little overpriced.

I was showing a few venues to one of my performers who is getting his feet wet in the Tampa Bay music scene for season work and we discovered this gem of a restaurant! The food was exceptional and layered with flavor! And our server, Rick, made a dinner an engaging experience with his fantastic personality and professional flair for customer service. Rick is an example of a server who loves his job and knows how and when to lead his customers to upgrade their menu choices. Marina Cantina is fortunate to have him on their staff, I will be back again - and hopefully, Justo Saborit will be performing there in the next few months!

As a corporate pilot, I have traveled to the Clearwater area numerous times for two and three day trips. Dollar for dollar you can’t beat this place. Outdoor dinning is available with gas heaters for those cool nights. The restaurant overlooks the beautiful marina.

Their salsa and chips are excellent, and the menu has lots to chose from. Shane, our waiter, did an excellent job and answered any questions we had.

I had a dish that had grouper, shrimp, scallops,mussels, over a bed of Spanish rice.my favorite seafood meal ever!

Give this great Cantina a try, it will not disappoint!

When we arrived we decided to sit outside. Once seated it was too cold and asked to be moved, the manager quickly escorted us inside and sat us promptly. Our server Samantha was very pleasant and attentive. The food was very good, my wife got the chicken taco's and I got the carne asada. Both were very flavorful. My favorite was the homemade salsa, very fresh with the warm tortilla chips they serve. We had a great experience at Marina Cantina.

Wife and I had dinner and drinks at Marina Cantina and we greatly enjoyed our whole night! Derrick, our waiter was great, and offered good suggestions and helped the bartender make the drinks we wanted. Enjoyed the salsa and chips and casa ceviche and the ahi tuna in the ceviche was among the best we have ever had. Very fresh fish and drinks as well with great clean ingredients. We enjoyed the monkfish dinner and paella. Definitely a great place for dinner on a nice evening! Enjoyed the live music (from a restaurant downstairs) from our outside table (musician said he's there every Friday 6-10 p.m.).
