Now that Marina Cantina is right next to Home Depot, it is easy to find them and their extraordinarily delicious tacos and burritos ( some of the best Mexican food north of the border.) Fresh herbs and spices are one of the keys to this flavorful food. You can take your food out or eat in the pleasant setting of dappled shade provided by the beautiful old trees. The entire experience is laid back and relaxing. Don't miss the fish taco, that is my favorite.

The name says it all...just a little cantina by the marina with outdoor seating. The service was excellent and the food was the best I've ever eaten! I've eaten around the coast of Florida and this is by far the best fish tacos ever! We ordered the brisket burger, fish tacos and quesadillas. The quesadillas were amazing as well loaded with bacon, shrimp, and cheese. The owner even took the time to sit down with us and talk for a minute. We will definitely be visiting here again! Take the time to stop in and eat, all of the food looked amazing!

Based on a friend's recommendation, a cool breeze and a temp in the low 70's, I took my wife there for lunch. They didn't have the Grouper Tacos but had fresh caught Cobia Tacos. They were fantastic! The eating area is outside but it was very clean and comfortable. Cindy, who runs it, is a local who was able to come out and sit with us. She was great fun and full of information. We shall make this a frequent stop restaurant.

Unbelievable Fish Tacos! A real must on our travels! Off the beaten path but make the effort to find it!

If you are trapped in the shopping area near Home Depot and Lowe's and need a break and a bite to eat just point your car in the direction of Nix Boat Yard Rd and you will arrive in two minutes in the land of the Serene, calm and scrumptious world of the Marina Cantina. The tacos, soups, and other foods are all deliciously and subtly seasoned. Spicey, but not to the point where you can't taste the flavor of the sauce. If you want a five alarm fire in your mouth you can always add some datil pepper sauce. If it is a beautiful day you can sit at one of the picnic tables and look out over the Marina. All you have to do is eat and enjoy the view.
