We were very excited to have a dinner at Catina however the portion of food was good but every thing comes out deep fried . The expectation of food quality was very low of what we pay.

Get in there and try the big burrito. This thing is massive. Grab a bucket of coronas to wash it all down. Worth a visit. Yum yum

This restaurant is over priced. The portions are quite large, but it is all the lettuce and tomatoes they put on the plate that make you think you have a huge meal. Very disappointed there were no fish tacos - a staple in any good...More

When it comes to Mexican restaurants in Newcastle, Cantina is up there with the best. Get on down and try the Naked Burrito. The extensive menu has more choice than you could imagine, and even has a range of Italian meals and share plates making it the perfect restaurant for dining out. You can enjoy cocktails, mocktails and Margarita Monday's, where you get two Margarita's for the price of one.
