    The food was excellent. Tortilla Soup was very flavorful with a great combination of ingredients. The cactus salad also outstanding. We split one salad and still left some. We both had the Grouper Ajillo Style. The piece of fish was huge and perfectly cooked. Tha ajillo seasonings and sauce were excellent. While this may be an unusual complaint, the servings were all too large. We could have split both the soup and the main course and still have been completely satisfied. The price was high like all the good restaurants at Vidanta but the serving sizes could have been reduced and a small reduction in price would be appropriate.

    The service, food and ambiance were fantastic. The best meal of our trip so far. The guacamole was fresh and delicious. Braised Ribs were tender and the 8 hands was like a fine steak. The Cocktail cart is a must. Try the Margarita frozen with liquid nitrogen or the Mexican Margarita.

    Despite a reservation for outdoor seating, they would only seat us inside. And the table was in a corner, and the windows were all fogged over so we couldn't see outside. The server was terrific, and the food was wonderful, but we were not happy with our seating, and they said they had no room to move us to a better table. The restaurant has large screens and blaring music which we found much too loud.

    It took a while but we finally were able to get a reservation for dinner! The service was wonderful, as our waiter Miguel was incredible! He was friendly and very helpful! The food was scrumptious and the mariachis came into the restaurant twice to play and sing! Try it out! You will not be disappointed!

    Delicious food is the best reason to return to a restaurant. We went to Cantina in December and thought it was wonderful, so we went back this trip. I can only say it was even better this time.. Service is wonderful; they can’t do enough to make your experience pleasant. Atmosphere: how can you beat a beautiful view of the ocean?

    Our server told us about the drink of the day for Oscar night. We asked twice how much the drink cost. He could not tell us. He said probably $10-$11 US dollars. We agreed to get the drink then after he served us, he told us it was $15.00. We felt that we were taken advantage of and the drink wasn’t good.

    We had dinner twice at La Cantina. Both were magical experiences. Starting with the chips and salsa. Wow!! The chips varied in color and flavor and the seven salsas were flavor explosions. Each entre we had was expertly prepared and beautifully presented. The sea bass was moist and the sear was perfect. The short rib was outstanding. The enchiladas suizas held just the right amount of tang. The service is friendly and expert. Don’t forget the margaritas. They use a lovely smoky tequila and balance the flavors perfectly.

    Everything from the appetizers to the Main Course were excellent. The drinks they serve are very good as well too. The service was spot on and very friendly as well as attentive. My wife had the short ribs in the green Molé sauce. I had the octopus. It probably was the best octopus I’ve ever had. I would highly recommend this for anybody coming to the area. Also, I thought that the prices were exceedingly reasonable.
