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.

Too spicy with no indication on menu. I could not eat my lunch which was disappointing. Also, the reason we were there was that we googled and found them listed as having authentic el pastor tacos, only to find out they were out of them and they had just opened for the day.

Such a cool spot! The only issue we had was the chairs. To sit on bar stools is really uncomfortable for dinner. You can get bar stools that have backs food for thought lol.

It was a great time! Had a group of 14 for a birthday party. They were kind enough to surprise the birthday person by letting us smuggle the cake in and then bringing it out and also cutting it up and distributing it. Highly recommend the place, the servers were nice and the lighting in the place is the best i have seen. Old school retro lights everywhere makes you feel like you walked into a traditional mexican beachside bar. They even had sombreros and fake mustaches if you wanted to get your pictures taken. Only taken a star off the service because for larger groups they don't accomodate individual bills. I know it might be hard for them to do this for larger groups but if they dont do it then the one person that pays for others has to later manage it and do the math which becomes a hassle on the customer's part. But this one little issue is still NO WAY taking away from the fact how amazing these guys are. Thank you! Indy

Loved the food, loved the vibe and all cantina had to offer. Great spot to recommend to friends and family when in the Junction neighbourhood. Staff was very accommodating, even though we had to change our reservation time. They were happy to work with us. We and our friends will be back again !

Very polite server but she forgot on several occasions for basic items (missing knife/fork, another glass of wine) that we asked for but didn’t get first time around. The service rating jumps from 3 to 4 as the kitchen did honor my request to hold off on the Jalapeño salsa on tacos. Not a huge ask but none the less it was done and I appreciated it. All in all an enjoyable time and I’ll be back and would recommend the Cantina to friends!

Every bite of the food is super tasty and the joint is a very cool vibe. If you want one taco a person plus guacamole and chips to share, an a minimum an hour due to service. Incredibly slow to get food, drinks, and bill but they appeared fully staffed. Even our drinks were only taken once which resulted in the table serving themselves to extra bottles of water and heading out for more drinks elsewhere. The bill was another 20min to sort out. We were in no rush but some clients like service on their terms, not waiting around.
