'Latin culture is vibrant, energetic and there is always a cause for celebration. Inspired by multiple cultures across South America, Comuna Cantina isn’t just a dining experience – grazing over good food and sipping delicious drinks is a way of life. We offer a range of tacos, burritos, quesadillas with a full cocktail and bar menu. It’s all about Latin America Street Food and a viva la Vida attitude. The high-energy buzz in the atmosphere is like no other Latin-inspired. The bright and lively interior is paired with music so catchy you’ll be shimmying at the table. In fact, at the venues, the staff say, “BUT FIRST, WE DANCE!” – and there’s no need to save it for the weekend. At any time during the week, the place is PUMPING WITH GOOD VIBES'

Music too loud. Wrong drinks provided. High bar stools/tables uncomfortable to eat at. Mexican food not having rating/chilli wrong. Only the beef version was listed as spicy.

Busy night, very slow service but when they did serve us they really made up for it. Staff were lovely & attentive- just really under the pump. Be prepared to wait for drinks & food. Drinks were made wrong, but staff also took the time to correct issues.

I was super excited to try this place but the food was incredibly disappointing, some of the most average food I’ve had in a while. The staff were a little all over the place and whilst I had confirmation of my booking they couldn’t find it in the system.

The service was great and the food was very enjoyable. However, the portions are small for the price. Conversation at the tables close to the speakers is very difficult.

Lovely waitress, friendly staff.
Delicious cocktails.
Food was the only let down - calamari and chicken bites were both over done / over cooked. They were very busy so maybe that contributed.
Would recommend but maybe at a less busier time?

Cocktails were great - the young male
Bartender was amazing, we did however wait probably 15 minutes for drinks he could’ve done with some help in the bar. Service was pretty good but nothing amazing. Food was awful - nachos had no flavour and were very dry definitely not worth the money. Probably won’t come back can get better service and quality elsewhere

We had a fabulous lunch with family at Comuna Cantina - it was our first time there and we were so glad we had chosen to go there. The decor was very cute, the staff were truly lovely - they just seemed to know when we needed them and nothing was too much of a problem, and the food was really enjoyable with lots of vegetarian options. The cocktails were outstanding too! A really great experience all round and we will definitely return.

We love Comuna Cantina in Everton Park so we were excited to bring my husbands parents to the city one.

First of all the food was great. Could not fault it. The customer service could improve.

I’d definitely return to EP. Not sure if I would come back to the city location.

Food was delicious as always. It was busy but the service was really bad. Wrong drink order, we were served a glass of beer instead of the jug, when sent back, the bar staff just poured the beer from the glass to the jug and then served the jug with water glasses. Boone offered us deserts or other drinks. We felt very rushed and left the table in less than 45 minutes. Thats not exactly what i expect when going out for dinner. Food was amazing!!! I am juste very disappointed by the service as i love al your venues and have been recommending the restaurants to all my friends.

Awesome food and cocktails, noise behind bar a bit loud with dropping of bottles etc (we were seated inside though). Only suggestion would be to give people a couple of minutes to review the menu, we were pounced on within 2 minutes of arriving to order. But love the place and will definitely be back (especially for the cocktails)

Worst “Mexican” I have ever eaten. I had the taco bowl, which consisted of half a can of uncooked and unwashed black beans, some weird grainy taco beef and underwhelming and tasteless sides. Service was friendly but hopeless (understaffed and undertrained). Also, the meal was expensive for something that was worse than airplane food.
