We stayed at the Costa Verde hotel across the street so this was extremely convenient. I love the open air and live music. The place has a wonderful ambiance and feels very intimate and private table to table. The furniture is gorgeous and unique. The wait staff was very pleasant, spoke English well and were very attentive.
I’m not sure why this wasn’t higher rated as the food was FANTASTIC and I’m a BBQ snob. We got the La Cantina Ribeye and Wrapped Yellowfin Tuna Loin one night and we both had the Ribeye the next visit. Beautifully plated, well seasoned and ample servings.
Would definitely return if we visited the area again.

“Cozy.. Local Band Fun.. Grilled Foods”
La Cantina has a cozy ambiance with a train caboose decor and open space concept with open fire grill kitchen to show. There are two levels wherein the lower level has the local duet musicians playing their tunes (mostly Spanish with English songs in the mix), and the upper quiet area. The waiters are not all bilingual but are attentive. Food has good portions. Grilled seabass was delicious and perfectly cooked. Although the seafood curry dish and the seafood soup seemed to have the same ingredients, both are well cooked in their respective flavors and had the smorgasbord of fish, shrimp, octopus, squid, & shellfish which I like. Eventhough it was raining, we enjoyed our dinner & music as well as the other group several tables away. The 2 couples in their group were dancing away as the band duo sang “Red red wine…”

The restaurant had a great atmosphere, good music from a live band, great service and the food was delicious. We choose to eat there three times over a week stay because we enjoyed it so much.
