Travellers' Choice
We are a friendly, family-run cafe/bar/restaurant set on the edge of beautiful Youngs Park. Just a stones throw from Goodrington Sands Beach. We welcome dogs and everyone else! Our food is freshly cooked from raw ingredients. From doorstep sandwiches to our famous hake and handcut chips. Fresh seafood from nearby Brixham market feature often on our specials boards along with meat and produce from surrounding farms. We love being here at Cantina and we really hope you'll like us too.

Had a fantastic pizza mid afternoon today after our dog walk with a sneeky pint. I would also like to thank the staff for the sausages for the dogs. Glad to see you open again after a tough year. Well done. Mike & Jenny

Sadly the service and food wasn’t good. It took 35 minutes to get a drink delivered to our table and the Buddha bowl was tasteless Hopefully it’s just teething problems

Hi If you can explain your specific hygiene concerns, perhaps we can advise. In the meantime, I can refer you to our most recent environmental health officer visit where we scored the maximum of 5.
