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.

The best features of this meal were a lovely margarita, and that the guacamole starter was prepared from fresh ingredients at the table. I also enjoyed the enchiladas in chocolate, though the portions could have been bigger. But we're used to large portions here in the Lake District, so maybe the portions were fine for Londoners.

Myself and my husband ate here last Saturday evening before we went to the theatre, after seeing it reviewed on here. We didn't book, but I would do so in the future, as they were quite busy and packed by the time we left. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and the service was slick. We both had the pre-theatre menu which we thought was great value. The starters were served quickly and were fresh and delicious. We had a beef fajitas and a vegetable fajitas and both were huge and lovely. The beef was still pink and the vegetables were varied and cooked perfectly. We had house margaritas but no room for dessert regrettably. Thank you for a lovely meal, we will be back.

I went to the Covent Garden restaurant several times, and really liked the food; although, it's not authentic Mexican. The guacamole that the servers prepare right at your table is flavorful and fresh, as is the sea bass and vegetarian quesadillas. Fish tacos... not so great, but you can't win them all. Drinks = good with a lot of alcohol. Very satisfying food/experience at a medium price that's not cheap, but typical for London. Sidewalk seating is nice for people watching. I'd return here again and again.

Amazing food, the portions were great. Try the scalloped potatoes on the sides menu they are amazing! We had the chicken enchiladas in the chocolate sauce which really was different and very tasty

We visited this restaurant for an early dinner, and even though we had no reservation we managed to get a table. The portions were big and we completely overordered (couldn't walk afterwards!). Service was excellent! Very attentive but not pushy. Everything was tasty, except from their special Margaritas which I found very watery and not really tasty.
