When we lived in Marina del Rey 20+ years ago we were a Friday regular and loved the authentic Mexican food, the robust margarita's and the bottomless chips and salsa.

We had the opportunity to come back for a local visit and were pleasantly surprised to find the restaurant still there. So, we went in and found that we were transplanted back 20 years, the food was still excellent, the margarita's still as great and of course the authentic chips and spicy salsa still amazing. If you want authentic Mexican food, this is the place to be!

I love mole and the mole here is as good as the mole I've enjoyed near Mexico City. The food was fabulous. We did take-out fajitas one night and dined in another night. This is a little part of Mexico in California. Very authentic and the staff was absolutely wonderful. A must visit!

Stumbled upon this on our way back to the hotel so we decided to try it and so glad we did. Food was wonderful and so were desserts. Would definitely return if we weren't leaving tomorrow!

Baja Cantina is a superior dining experience, especially for fans of Mexican Cuisine. If they had Oscars for Margaritas, this place would win every year. The Mexican cuisine is as good or better than any other place in LA. Their Monday night special spare ribs are as good or better than you get in places that specialize in barbecue. Cheerful atmosphere, friendly service,,,Who could ask for anything more?

Had lunch with family while doing the Santa Monica - Venice bike trail. Good burritos, service okay and atmosphere relaxed.
