Popped in after arriving in Asheville, seated right away. Food spicy & just okay, a bit pricey. $12 quesadilla $10 for 2 chicken tacos - sides were good. Now I can say I've tried it.

Wonderful Mexican food. Great service. They did not service the free basket of chips, but that was okay because there was plenty of food. My husband and I ordered the Vegetarian fajitas and it was delicious and piping hot.

Wonderful weather so decided to eat outside on the patio. A lot of familes with small children so it was very noisy and ruined the atmosphere. Wait staff was excellent, food was very tasty except for the fresh salsa, too much vinegar in the tomatillo,...More

In Biltmore village. Beautiful. Has covered wrap around porch. Nice interior. Good food, great service. I really liked it but my husband said it's just another taco place. My quesadilla had a great and different taste. So I thought it was great.

This restaurant is great for the entire family and even though we didn't have need of a high chair--I would imagine they have them.

The Cantina at Historic Biltmore Village features handmade Fresh Mex and the only tequila bar in Asheville. We're a great choice for dinner with friends, a family gathering, or even a romantic evening with someone special. Our expansive menu offers handmade Southwestern favorites with a twist of Asheville. We use only the freshest ingredients grown locally when available and strive to be conscientious of our extended and immediate environments. We compost the leftovers and aim at being as sustainable as possible. Start things off with tempting appetizers like the Chiles Rellenos and our Ultimate Queso Dip, just to name a few. Cantina favorites include The Biltmore Chicken Quesadilla Best Ever Baja Fish Tacos, and vegetarian options like The AshVeggie Burrito. Have an event coming up? Let the Cantina help feed your guests with on and off site caterings at prices to fit any budget. We have a wide assortment of proven crowd pleasing buffets, and are happy to customize for specific requests. The Cantina is also an active member of our community. If you opt to donate one of your two sides offered with each entrée, The Cantina will donate that portion to a local food charity. The cash equivalent of one donated side can feed up to 6 of our neighbors in need. We at The Cantina are honored to be a part of Asheville and the unique enclave that is Historic Biltmore Village. Whatever brings you in, we hope you enjoy your meal and time spent in our company, and that you return again soon for Asheville's most unique and delicious Fresh Mex and Tequila Bar!
