A word from The Cantina - Mill Valley
The Cantina is located in Mill Valley, California and is specialized in Mexican cuisine.
We keep coming back to this
restaurant for Mexican, not just because it is convenient, but because they get the food right every time. Great Chile Rellenos, excellent tostadas and enchiladas, tasty margaritas, warm fresh chips and great service."

A decent Mexican cantina. It is
rather typical California Mexican food served in large portions. Kid friendly and the bar attracts a noisy crowd. Not a place for a quiet dinner. We go there occasionally when the wife doesn't want to cook dinner. Their chile rellenos and crab cakes are good."

From the moment we sat down, and
one of our water glasses was leaking from a hole in the bottom, up until the rest of our food and drinks never came, it was a comedy of errors. The food was good, but the service was indifferent."

A PERFECT FAMILY SPOT WITH A GREAT
SELECTION OF TASTY FOOD, FRIENDLY AND PRETTY PROMPT SERVICE. LARGE PORTIONS THAT ARE PERFECT FOR DOGGIE BAGS BECAUSE CANTINA USES FRESH INGREDIENTS. THEY USE CHICKEN BREAST AND PRIME CUTS OF MEAT, EVERYONE (6) WAS HAPPY WITH THEIR MEAL. NOT TOO NOISEY EXCEPT FOR A FEW UNCONTROLLABLE CHILDREN AT THE NEXT TABLE WHICH SEEMS TO BE THE NORM IN MARIN."

5 people 45 minutes excellent
food, great service, fine margaritas. Couldn't ask for a better, casual dining experience."

The Cantina has this great quality
of feeling like a large, go-to, family Mexican restaurant (easy access, parking lot), with a small bar area that is great for watching sports…(there's even an outdoor patio area off the bar with a TV outside!) AND it also has a cozy, even romantic vibe, inside. the food is excellent, and plentiful - with many choices. you really feel like all your needs are met. note: they close at 9, sharp on Sunday nights. so, if you go that night, like we did - I recommend going before 8 if you plan to hang out a bit. We had to go somewhere else to continue our conversation."

We had a group of 5 and were
greeted warmly as members arrived. The food was really good and we enjoyed it all."

Great place for young kids. Lots
and lots of noise. Worked for us with grandkids. Very good kids menu."

I ordered the CAMARONES RANCHEROS
and the shrimp were over cooked."

Been back recently after not going
for a long time, and was pleasantly surprised that the food had improved 100 fold over last year. We have been back several times since. Maybe they have a new chef. The quality of the food has definitely improved and was excellent, the freshness as well. And put together nicely to make a memorable meal. The drinks were very good, but the food was the best! We will be going back tonight again. Between lunch and dinner we have gone a lot in just the last 2 months. I am so glad we gave it another try. And the waitperson is always wonderful here. Love this California Mexican."

The service was great, but as
others have mentioned they don't give you enough time between your appetizer and your entrée, and the same person (not the waiter) serves you your food ( and seems to be rushed and a little confused who gets what entrée. The Cantina has good Mexican food, but not authentic, but I would definitely return and recommend it to others."

Jose is the best waiter! My
husband is on a restrictive diet and Jose made sure he did not have any salt on his food. The cooks obliged and that alone makes the Cantina a very special place!"
Dined on 7/7/2013
The waiter was very nice, but we
felt a little rushed - the food came super fast and the help seemed a little anxious to get rid of us - I could understand if it was very busy, but it was not. Other than that, the food was good and the server very nice. The house margarita was tasty but very weak in alcohol - so that was a dissappointment."

Cantina has been great lately. I
have been twice in the past month and both experiences were great. Service is very good and very fast. It's a great place to bring kids, and the food is excellent."

Service Outstanding and quick. Daniel is the Best waiter ."

The Cantina is our "go to" when
craving Mexican in Marin .... Simply the best! Better than all the rest!"
Dined on 5/28/2013
The food was really good and so
were the drinks! They have huge tables which are very comfortable, great ambiance, parking right out the door and also outdoor seating...worth a visit...very family friendly and popular...a surprise ...and definitely on the list for more visits...."

We had brunch here on a Sunday and
it was very good. We sat outside on the patio. They had $5 drinks including a nice bloody mary. A couple of weeks later we had dinner there. The food was good, but not quite as good as we have had at other Mexican restaurants. No option to get whole pinto beans. It is a restaurant that we will return to occasionally."

The food is hardly authentic, but
it's not bad. The patio is certainly more pleasant than the interior - and quieter. The servers were pleasant, but not polished. If you want to eat rather than dine, give it a try."

We had a wonderful experience. My
sister has four kids, including twin toddlers. They are a handful! The staff was wonderfully accommodating and helped her feel at ease even when the kids were being crazy and making a mess! The food was great and there were a ton of items on the menu to choose from. The restaurant is beautiful and there patio was very nice as well."

We just had an anniversary dinner
there and we were very pleased with the service and the food. Can't get any better."
Dined on 4/12/2013
All the food was very good,
especially the table side guacamole. The wait staff couldn't have been less interested in us."
