    In terms of decor, the restaurant doesn't have much personality, but the booths are cozy, and the magaritas, tacos and fajitas are very tasty. Great little neighborhood spot.

    The decor is not what you would expect in a Mexican restaurant. And the food even less. The decor is classy with a hint of Mexican and the food is delicious and a contemporary version of what would be Mexican. The services was good. The night my family was there it was too cold to sit outside but the area would have been very charming. The fountain outside is beautiful and a great picture backdrop. Dessert was fabulous. The brownie was one of the best I've had.

    Rudest valet person ever but we shook it off and started over. The restaurant looks plain. They are going for a sort of contemporary minimalist look. Our server was good which came to be the only real above average thing about Cantina Laredo. After an extensive chat with her about the various margaritas & our desire for the best/ top shelf tequila, a very average (at best) drink appeared. The suggested tableside guacamole was not very flavorful or impressive at all. It needed spices of some kind despite having their "secret" ingredient. The salsas and chips were good. Our carne asada & carnitas pork shanks were better, but still mildly flavored. At every turn we were left disappointed. Not bad but not good either. We just won't be back.

    Having dined at Cantina Laredo in the Dallas area for years, I was excited to find one in the Orlando area. HUGE difference. Everything was "fair." That's about as good as I can put it. Not great. Not bad. Just fair. Nothing exceptional, unfortunately.

    It was my daughter sweet 16 and I wanted to do something special plus have enough room to invite family & friends. Originally this was going to be about 5-7 people but last minute changed to about 15. The restaurant was wonderful regarding the change and put us in a private room! My daughter was so surprised! The food was amazing, service spectacular and our waiter, Andy, was absolutely the best!! Would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting the Orlando area! We're already making plans to go back next month for my birthday!

    If you are looking for great inbetween Tex-Mex and authentic Mexican, Cantina Laredo is the spot. It is neccesary to state that the service was on-point for all the times dined at (been to restaurant 2 times). Props to the waiters/waitresses there. The food was good (Tacos al Pastor and Carne Asada). The Tacos al Pastor was good, but not as great as the first time here. The Carne Asada was spectcular and on-point; interesting note that the meat was bedded on top of the chimichurri sauce. The rice/beans that the taco/carne came with can use some improvement; but does not take away from the meal. The ambience, style and design of the restaurants is great; each factor compliments each other to produce an energtic and lively environment.

    In a strip mall so can be a little difficult to find. We sat outside next to the fountain which was very pretty and large! We were sat outside at our request but the hostess forgot to tell our waiter so we were there for 20 minutes before my husband went in to see what was going on. She was very apologetic though and so was the waiter. My husband and I had the beef fajita nachos which unlike what I was used to, came as individual chips with cheddar instead of the white cheese and had beans as well as the steak, pepper and onion. They were actually pretty good but be aware because it is different then anyone else does and there's no way to tell from the description. Free chips and salsa were very good and overall ambiance was nice.

    I kept coming across the same few Mexican recommendations on TripAdvisor & had decided on one of them when my husband said he'd check Open Table. That's when we saw Cantina Laredo & luckily they had reservations available for that same night. So glad we found this place! The restaurant is big so can accommodate lots of people at once but there are plenty of servers so service wasn't an issue. All of our dishes were delicious as were the chips & salsa that are replaced continuously unless you say stop! I have a picky 9-yr old who enjoyed his generous portion of "Mexican" chicken fingers as well! Would recommend if looking for a decent Mexican place while in Orlando.

    Cantina Laredo has the closest tasting food to traditional Tex-Mex found in Texas that we have been able to find in Florida. The salsas (two types both served upon arriving) are unique and very good. The food is billed as gourmet Mexican by the restaurant, but I'd still call it Tex-Mex and not mean it in a derogatory manner. The prices are high for this type of food but not out of line with restaurants in the Dr. Phillips area. We will definitely be back and recommend it to anyone seeking good Tex-Mex food in Florida.

    Tableside prep of guacamole was nicely done and taste was superior. Bar drinks are strong and the mojitos are superior (not too sweet as most are around here). We sampled several dishes and were pleased with all of them, my particular favorite being the enchiladas de mole. Dishes were not as spicy as I've had in South Texas and Mexico, but authentic enough and to be expected in a tourist area. The Mole' sauce was well prepared and quite good. We had a party of four and desired good food and service in a nice quiet setting for conversation with friends. We were not disappointed. We found this gem after leaving a nearby establishment for more appropriate atmosphere (other place was too loud for conversation).

    Food was prepared well and arrived at the table hot. The waiter knew the menu well and suggested a plain sounding desert that turned out to be a production of table preparation of a piece of apple pie. We would definitely go back there. The only downside is the close proximity to Disney and the presence of noisy children always seems to be an issue at this otherwise classy adult restaurant.
