Wife and I very enjoyable meal at the Cantina. Service very attentive. A nice change of food type while on the island.
Casual cantina with seating outside courtyard or inside restaurant. Great margueritas and surf and turf burrito. (Steak and shrimp). Salsa was fresh and spicy. Nice touch to have a fresh salad as my side with the burrito. Ate outside and enjoyed the beautiful evening with good service.

We stumbled across Cantina Captiva and decided to give it a try. It was a good choice! It's a fun little place with good food and fast service. Perhaps too fast, though.
