We stopped at La Cantina to grab a quick lunch, our meal exceeded expectations. We ordered nachos and veal fajitas, the food was great, not too spicy, just enough chilli kick. Staff very friendly and prices reasonable. Would definitely visit again.

Typical Mexican food with good portion sizes. The staff were friendly and prices were reasonable. We went in the evening when it was dark so didn’t get to appreciate the view.
