Street style setting with a modern feel. $5 frozen margarita and $5 taco on Sunday was a great incentive. Menu is small but ticks the mexican box. The soft crab tacos were great. The nachos unfortunately lacked any sort of flavour or mexican spice so...More

In a great location, we sat in the back area that has more of a breeze. Limited menu but what they do have, they do really well. Margaritas flowed and the food quickly arrived. Great atmosphere and we will be back soon.

La Canteena is a great place to have a few drinks and some great simple meals. The Nachos & Chicken Wings are excellent 👌🏻

La Canteena is a great place to go for a few drinks or a casual meal. It has a very laid-back vibe. Their cocktails are great and I highly recommend their wings - best ever! Service is efficient and very friendly.
