Seemed pricey for Mexican food but considering the location and view it was not that bad. Happy hour margarita $10 and tacos $6 a piece. They were small but packed with very good shredded beef. Waiter was very good. Loved the decor and views hard to beat.

The setting is wonderful and the food is delicious. Paola is by far the best waitress in the World! Visited twice during our stay and each time we loved it.

Cantina has great food in a beautiful location. They have gluten free items marked on the menu. We ate there twice during our stay. Each time it seemed liked they were understaffed.

Cantina Beach is located on Key Biscayne at Ritz Carlton Key. The décor is tropical wonderful and the weather is great. The staff is good and so is the menu. Most of the customers are tourists, or staying at the hotel. I had ice tea , pulled beef tamales with tomatillo sauce tapas.

Although it was quite cool that day, the views were still agree with others that the guacamole is very good- not the best I've ever had but nonetheless very simple and tasty. The lunch menu is compact which is good but almost too limiting. The basic venue with enchiladas, taguitos and ensaladas. I had the chicken enchiladas. The tomatillo sauce... More

Great service and food, but is overpriced for just regular Mexican. However the guacamole was very good. Be sure to watch how much salt she puts in though.

We have heard about this restaurant from friends and how good the food was so couldn't wait to try it out. They were absolute correct. Sitting outside on the waterfront made it more special as the sun went down and the cruise ships began to leave the port of Miami. Guacamole was fantastic as well as the fajitas. Happy hour... More
