I found this restaurant/take out from a Groupon and now am a regular. They have a limited selection of Mexican fare including quesadillas, chili and burritos but what they have is top quality. It's like a Mexican version of Subway: you choose your style (burrito,...More

In my opinion the food here is bland. I've eaten here about 4 times because they have groupons. If I was paying full price there are better options like Burrito Jax or Dee Dee's

This is a sandwich place essentially, good for lunches or snacks but it is not the type of place one would go for casual dining. The food is good, and they make efforts to serve fresh authentic food, but somehow it lacks authenticity. But it...More

This place was truly amazing! I had a burrito bowl with chicken, rice, black beans, pico de gallo and the best guac ever! The quality of the food and service was second to none. I will absolutely make a point to stop here for lunch/supper...More

This modest place with counter service actually provides the best Mexican food in the city. We had beef enchiladas at our most recent visit. The pulled beef filling was flavourful with just the right amount of spice. There were two very large tortillas, topped with...More

Good location close to the Public Gardens and Downtown Halifax. Eat in or take out. Eating in is casual (nothing fancy). The food is great and the prices are reasonable. Try the burrito! It is a meal on it’s own.

Hello. I am sorry you were disappointed, and it is so out of tune with other reviews we have had on Trip Advisor, Yelp, Urban Spoon, Facebook & twitter, as well as critic reviews the Cantina received. As I understand it you were let down...More

Stopped in after hearing about it. Had a beef burrito and man was it good. No deep fryers, no freezers all fresh and all delicious! Tucked in a little corner by the gardens on South Park Street. Try it!

I had high hopes - all fast, fresh, spicy and freshly prepared. But all 4 dishes on my combo plate were lukewarm. Thing is, they don't use microwave ovens, so if I wanted it hot, it would have to go in the oven, and I...More
