Description: Cantina Laredo offers something completely new, a sophisticated approach to traditional Mexican cuisine. Our ethos at Cantina Laredo is to blend old with new by using contemporary and traditional techniques to bring a modern twist to the authentic flavours from all regions of Mexico. The menu is a culinary exploration of Mexico’s regional cuisines in search of Mexico’s most incredible flavours. Traditional and contemporary techniques combine to produce an intriguing menu that pays homage to authentic Mexican flavours. Emphasis is on the bold and intense flavours with simple presentation using high quality ingredients. Dishes are authentic, but not traditional with a modern approach to recreate classic dishes and invent new ones. The menu has been designed to create a sophisticated, yet informal and relaxed dining experience. There is no set procedure on ordering, dishes are designed to be shared at the table or enjoyed individually.

Food and drinks are incredibly overpriced.
£30 for a small platter of grilled meat.
Very disappointing. Don't go there.

I will definitely be returning to Cantina Laredo. We spent several evenings and we enjoyed. Good cocktails, gourmet food. Happy atmosphere, without being noisy. Soft dinning without being boring.
Last time when we came, I was upset by a chewing gum on my jeans. The owner noticed and proposed me his special spray to remove it. He looked for it, itself, at the kitchen and it worked. I was impressed by his friendly attitude.
I fully enjoyed my meal, but this seemed to be normal for every customer entering Cantina Loredo. We highly recommend taking a turn to visit this restaurant next time when you are near upper St Martins Lane.

We had a mix of 'signature dishes' such as chicken stuffed with prawns and typical ones. They were all very tasty. The empanadas as particularly hot so beware! Wines are reasonably priced. The margeritas are very good. Definitely worth a visit.
