Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The two girls serving were rude and dismissive. Got the impression they didn’t want us there. No-one else was in the restaurant Ordered the food. When the bell was rang to say food was ready to take to the table the two members of staff...spent a good 5-10 mins messing about chatting and moving chairs. We were tempted to go and get the food off the counter ourselves. Food very average. Cauliflower and chickpea taco soft tortilla so spicy hit couldn’t eat it. It only has 1 chilli on the menu. Really mean amount of avocado on the other dishes. Raised it with staff. They had no idea what they were doing. Looked gormless said “what do you mean ‘hot’? 🤦‍♀️ Won’t be back!More

Amazing food. We had chargrilled corn and an array of tacos - sooooo good. Definitely recommend. Friendly staff. We were passing through, left behind a scarf with sentimental value and the posted it to is. How nice is that. Recommended!

Really good takeaway. Not the cheapest but very good food and easy to use Uber to get delivery. Burritos were very good value and sticky pork burger was delicious.

We had a lovely meal and lovely cocktails. Quick service, and great atmosphere. Staff were helpful and the location is perfect, parking was no problem even though it was a Friday night as we booked early

Arrived as first time visiting the place & our first meal in Bendigo but was disappointed by the attitude & lack of friendliness of the staff from start to finish (think Faulty Towers). The couple of the next table were told condescendingly that the dish...they asked about 'you wont like it if you have never heard of it'. Thankfully we liked both of the dishes we ordered but not rushing back.More

Visited with partner and 14yo grandson. All our food was value for money, good, filling and tasty but the tap beer ordered was WARM. They tried to rectify but only slightly better - obviously a problem on the night we attended.

We started with a nachos, well l never thought making a nachos was hard but clearly its hard for some. Bloody bland tasteless no melted cheese, just some disgusting pre fabricated cheese sauce garbage. The 12 hour brisket burrito was only slightly better but still...no where near exceptable. The fish taco was say so. Will never be returning. Oh and the number of times l saw the young cook take his baseball cap off and play with his hair, no gloves no washing hands then started eating chips. Mate, seriously your not upto it. Very poor, obviously no training. General rules in hospitality not upto any level. Wonder why l left the industry after 31 years. AppuallingMore

Lunch yesterday (Sunday) - delicious well-presented food. But you can't claim the best cocktails in Bendigo if you serve a margarita without a salt rim and made with Bickford's lime cordial. Pathetic excuse " too busy at the moment"

The dinner was very nice, don’t get my wrong but when it came time to order dessert, it’s a whole different story. Me and my family ordered the churros. After an hour and a half of waiting, been spoken too by 2 employees and telling...them about the wait and seeing at least 10 plates of the churros being served to customers around us we get approached by an employee saying that they were out of churros. We then went to pay and they tried to charge us for the churros that we never even got. After 10 minutes of negotiation we finally got a 25% discount of the meal. Very disappointing to have to wait an hour an a half to find out there isn’t any left when you can see multiple plates being served. The main dish was nice but the customer service was very poor. Would only go there as a last resort now.More

Our entrees arrived promptly however there was a long wait for our mains and then another long wait for our desserts. And this while the restaurant wasn’t busy. The food was average. The Chimichanga lacked salt. The waitresses were attentive however as they didn’t have...sections they all kept asking us the same questions. Wouldn’t recommend Cantina.More

Pretty disappointed with our dinner tonight. Booked a table, wasn’t set up. We’re seated at the table right near the door, with very heavy foot traffic. Meals took an hour from order to table. Some took even longer. We’re advised 40 minutes after ordering that...a meat selection was sold out. I canceled my sides as I finished my main and they hadn’t come out. In the end they did give us 25% off, which is nice, but a little communication goes a long way. One positive - the food was delicious! Just a shame about the rest.More

Had 2 for 1 cocktails very delicious. The churros came out raw on one plate and had to ask for ice cream and extra chocolate sauce even know ordered. Then had to ask for cutlery for ice cream. When paying told waitress what I had...but she just charged me the whole bill. No QR code supplied at any stage for COVID tracing and our details were not requested. Very young or inexperienced staff on the floor not leadership. Would only return to drink cocktails.More
