serving sizes were very small and quite expensive. Ceviche wasnt very good and neither was the stuffed eggplant
Food was excellent. Excellent service by Jose. Celebrated my husbands birthday here and had a fantastic evening. We ordered two menu items each and were stuffed full. All the staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Three of us ate six different plates and shared a pitcher of margaritas .... not one complaint! Fun and delicious. Our only regret was not coming here sooner. We will be back for sure.
Mexican food prepared creatively - unique dishes, including many small ones designed for sharing. Interesting ambiance - high ceilings, with shelving on the walls containing odd Mexican statuettes and pottery, and other walls with paintings. Close by a playhouse so good for pre-theater.
Great food and great staff. Found the place through google search and it has fantastic reviews. I have been to La Carnita before a bunch of times and the food taste and quality is totally comparable. I found the DJ for Saturday night the music was too loud, I could not have a conversation with my wife who was sitting right across from me. Otherwise place has great decor and character.
A great spot for something authentic and a little different.
Excellent spot with great great food. Waiter was knowledgable on his products and very helpful. Food was well portioned and came out at an appropriate pace.
Such great food and ambiance in a really cool area!
The margaritas are unbeatable. We first ordered the original guacamole, which was made table side. It was nice and salty, and flavourful. My meat eater boyfriend said that he never orders guacamole intentionally, but he remarked that he might be "a convert." We then had the Ensalada Diabilito which was nice and fresh with a crispy touch. I am currently living in Tofino, BC aka the land of the taco and I was surprised at how delightful the baja tacos were. The cod was lightly battered to perfection, and the tacos weren't overwhelmed with the extras - a fine balance. As our mains, we ordered a Gringa and the Cuero De Panza Al Horno which I had found the shaved pork to be a bit on the drier side, but still really tasty with the gouda cheese. My boyfriend admitted that his eyes were bigger than his stomach and he couldn't finish his pork belly but thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Overall, great meal! Next time we'll have to try the tasting menu, and take a journey through Mexico with El Cantrin. Thank you for the wonderful experience!
Food is very good but way too expensive, portions are so small you have to keep ordering more food. Disappointing.
, I dine in several Mexican restaurants , I was impress with the decor the atmosphere was nice , server was great , food was ok but didn’t impress my palet as I was expected.
