We went here for lunch on our 10th year anniversary date! Nicole was an awesome server!!! She made some great recommendations and go bled up every bite! We wished we could’ve stayed a few more days to go back an enjoy some other options, but next time we are in town this will be one of our first stops! PLEASE BRING THIS PLACE TO CALGARY! We need a good Mexican Restraunt!!

What a great new addition to kelowna dining scene. Everything was great. If your looking for cheap Mexican food and drink this is not the place. You get what you pay for I guess.

The spot for low-key and happy nights out! I love the vibe and all the staff! Social distancing is done well, you never feel like there are others around but it's always packed because the food is good. This was the perfect place to celebrate our anniversary, and we will keep coming back!

Tacos were more authentic than you usually get this far north and the double shell makes them quite filling. Very tasty! Good margs as well. Seemed to be the busiest place on Bernard on a quiet Tuesday night. Music is loud but not obnoxious. Great staff!

Friendly atmosphere with excellent service. Hard drinks are a little pricey, but very tasty and lots of liquor. Burritos were very filling and tasty as was the Pescados tacos. Enchilladas were okay.

Would go again.

We had a reservation and we had to wait for a bit to get in. The host gave us a round of Margaritas which definitely made the wait worthwhile. Zoe was our server and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and was great giving suggestions for ordering. The food was awesome. I will definitely be going again. The mango margarita was the best I’ve ever had!

It was a very young, modern, fresh restaurant with amazing food and drinks. The staff and other patrons were super friendly. The vibe at Cantina is just off the hook. We had a lovely time. My only complaint is they gave us a 9:30 reservation and closed at 10 so we felt a little rushed, I would have liked to have more time, and I would have bought more drinks but we sat down pretty much at last call.

Fun spot! Authentic and delicious food. Hilarious waitress who hustled all night for us. Watch she doesn't take your half finished drink though! Energetic, a bit loud. Love the intimate booths for a group. Happy to have you in Kelowna!
