This place is a hidden gem. Incredible food at a reasonable price. Owners are wonderful. I don't go to Cranbrook without eating here.

I knew when I walked in that this was authentic... It looked like the small town restaurants in Central America... Right down to the colour, the table covers, and pictures. The owners are so nice and great service. I enjoyed the food even as a vegetarian. I will go again. The only challenge that I can understand they cannot afford... More

It's always fun to go to Cancun for lunch or dinner. This family run restaurant is clean and the atmosphere is colourful. Food is tasty and I really enjoy the chile relleno's are one of my favourites. It's nice to have chips and salsa served at the table to start. The refried beans are yummy too. Great service.

We stopped in Cranbrook for one night on our way to the coast. The hotel we stayed at recommended Cancun to us. We were told that the food was excellent and the closest thing to authentic Mexican food that can be found this far north. The desk clerks recommendation was spot on. The food is amazing, price is right and... More

Owned by the same couple from Guatemala for at least the last 11 years, this place is a staple of the Cranbrook restaurant scene. My colleagues and I have visited the Cancun regularly when passing through each May (usually Cinco de Mayo). The food is genuine and so good. Be sure to have a margarita to go with it!

This lovely little restaurant is the real deal! Authentic and utterly scrumptious Mexican and Salvadoran fare! We were seated right away and quickly got our drinks. It takes a little while to get your meal because it is homemade. We enjoyed the wait because we were sipping on fresh mango and lime margaritas from glasses so frosty they were smoking!... More

Wow - a Salvadoran restaurant in Cranbrook, who would have thought? Came here for lunch and had Tingas and they blew me away so much I had to come back for enchiladas. This place is incredible! Beautifully decorated in festive traditional art, the sweetest old couple from El Salvidor are the owners and hosts. Free nacho appetizer with every meal... More

We've been visiting Cancun Restaurant for years. Arturo and Mila are 'seasoned citizens' with beautiful hearts who work hard to provide fresh, authentic food for a very decent price. It is a place you want to go to when you have time as all their meals are made to order and good food takes time to prepare. I've had everything... More

We had a birthday here and we all loved our food. Service was friendly though they were busy so a bit slower that evening but it was WELL worth the wait! Authentic eecuadorean and Mexican food loaded with cheesey goodness (or for the lactards in our group they ordered without cheese).

Thank Ruth A
