Finally foodies and budget conscience travellers alike can agree on a Whistler restaurant. La Cantina's $3 tacos are delicious and authentically Mexican. This is really good food priced better than sushi nigiri. I want a boat full of ten tacos next time I go. The beef tongue was a surprisingly delicious treat, while the rock fish, tuna, pork and brisket tacos were wonderful as expected. This small but funky hole in the wall will surely be lined up out the door for years to come.

A taco is an amazing and versatile food concept - so many places bastardize this delicious food but La Cantina keeps it simple and authentic. The flavours were incredible. I had rockfish, house chorizzo, beef tongue, tuna, and pork belly... three hours later I went back for another chorizzo and beef tongue washing it down with delicious Mexican pineapple soda. Yummy in every bite! The ambience of the place is truly amazing; the music sucks you right in and you just don't want to leave this place. Great for socializing and incredibly versatile! Really well done!

The tacos are great. I went in for a few and had all of them except for the tofu. A great spot for lunch in Whistler when there aren't many around. I highly recommend the pork belly.

So... strolled in one day to find our that they're not totally open for business.

$3 a taco - pick as many flavours as you like. Fresh, delicious, quick, and so so yummy. A party of flavours dazzled me and made my tummy so happy.

Rockfish and the Pulled Pork were my favourite. They also had some vegetarian options, and are licensed; would be awesome to have a meal their in the late evening! Great atmosphere and loved the decor.
