Everything was great except for the woman in the booth next to us passing out drunk and staff making her and her gentleman friend leave. However, the staff handled it very well, with great class and tact.

Overpriced with too simple flavours. All dishes were practically a large pile of green leaves hiding a couple of protein items. Cocktails also roo expensive. Not worth the visit.

The waiter didn’t want to be working that evening and he was very negative and it just made us feel uncomfortable. He kept saying the The meal was “family style” but, that would imply large portions to share but, it actually was tapas or small plates. The waiter didn’t recommend anything to us but, he seemed to explain a lot to the table next to us which made us feel very uncomfortable and as if we weren’t meant to be eating at this restaurant. We tried to salvage the evening but, we felt very awkward and uncomfortable about the entire experience. This was the first time for all of us at this restaurant and it was my birthday and I was very embarrassed that I chose this restaurant.

Once again El Cantrin was excellent! We had the tasting menu and each course was fabulously presented - altogether ugh not there for long! Our waiter, Jose, was charming, helpful and fun, and all of the staff were terrific. We love this place!!
