I've been here a number of times and I'm never disappointed! Its a great place to bring friends to try something delicious and unique. I'm already looking forward to my next visit. I was there on a recent Saturday evening at 5:30 and had to wonder, though, why the hostess felt compelled to inform me that my table was booked at 7:30. It felt rather rude and unwelcoming. I have no control over the efficiency of your kitchen or servers. There must be a better way. A sign? A note on your website?

Best Mexican restaurant ever in my opinion. Homemade hot sauces, crema, and tortillas. Absolutely delicious. Will come back. Excellent service and food is to die for.

Took 10 minutes for someone to seat us even though we had a reservation and tables were open. Three people asked if we had been helped and we said no, and then they walked away. When we finally were seated the food was quick to come to the table and delicious.

I really enjoyed my shrimp burrito and would have said 5 stars but my companion was less impressed with his 3 tacos. Place is definitely worth a visit.

Everything was great. My only comment is that the ceviche is not very authentic. It was mostly avocado and few fish bits in it. Needs more fish!

Too many high stools without backs. You need Cirque de Soleil performers as customers. Not all of us have long legs. Fabulous food.

Service and food were both great. The music was too loud causing everyone to have to talk even louder. Other than that it was a great night.

My daughter chose Playa Cabana Cantina to celebrate her 17th Birthday. Our server was super friendly and attentive and we had barely been served our drinks when the food started arriving. We were all amazed that we didn't have to wait longer. As usual, the food was super fresh and delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant for its excellent Mexican food. We'll definitely be back!

It does get a bit loud in the restaurant but the food was great! Will come again. I ordered the 3 assorted tacos that come with rice and beans but they missed the rice and beans and it took awhile to flag down a waitress. By the time they were brought out I was almost done eating my tacos. It was acknowledged that the rice and beans should have come out automatically. A bit annoying but the service was great otherwise.

Everything was fantastic ..the food was delicious and fresh. The only reason I put 4 stars in atmosphere is that it's a little noisy and a little difficult to have a conversation or hear our waitress with all the crowd noise but it's not the fault of the owner it's just the design of the restaurant. Even having said that I would definitely go again it's worth it for how great the food is.
