Meet the owner

“Boom!” That’s how Cantina unexpectedly started from the first day for owners Marianne Larochelle and Serge Landau. “Boui boui” is Marianne’s expression for the lively, convivial atmosphere the couple wanted and did conjure at their California-inspired, Mexican taqueria restaurant, which they opened on du Centre Street in Pointe St-Charles in 2010.

“We wanted to create a Mexican restaurant with a Californian freshness and health-consciousness and without the greasiness of some of the Mexican food you find there.” Says Marianne.

If the “insta-boom” signified that Serge and Marianne had acted well on their intuitions, research and creative aspirations, they were not aware of the subtleties of running a restaurant. “The first year was really hard, it took off so fast and we were disorganised. We definitely took a while to find our rhythm.”

Excellents tacos et enchilladas sur place ou à emporter. Pas très dispendieux. Une très bonne adresse pour le lunch ou le souper.
