“Keep doing what you're doing!”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 via mobile

Great atmosphere, I love the open kitchen downstairs which is fab when with a group of friends. Food is devilishly good! Went Saturday night for a quick bite to eat, as per usual bit off more than I could handle with a chicken burrito, the other half went for a killer BBQ and bacon burger. Can't fault it! They churn out some pretty nifty cocktails too which is a bonus! Cheers guys!

“Cant fault it. Epic food and really nice staff!”
Reviewed 28 December 2012

Popped in for a bit of lunch after christmas shopping. Its a real shame its tucked away up a little passage cause its a real gem!!

The staff are freindly and attentive without being in your face and making you feel hastled and the open plan kitchen is a great idea. We actually watched our lunch being made and the chef that was on that day was a top guy... Made us both laugh, real salt of the earth! Which sums the place up really; profesional yet friendly and approachable.

I cant recommend this place highly enough, service, food and ambiance deserve 6* on here. We will definatly be back in the new year to try out the Mexican Cantina Cafe in the evening.

The guy who said go to 'Telco' clearly has no idea what hes talking about!!

“Filled a food gap in Shrewsbury - amazing food!”
Reviewed 19 December 2012

I've been here 3 times since it opened and I can never wait to go again. The food is delicious and you'll be hard pushed to find another mexican restaurant in Shrewsbury. It's my favourite type of food so I hope The Cantina (formerly MeMe's) sticks around for good. There is a great choice of food and drink, (including my boyfriends rare cocktail of choice the Caipirinha). The restaurant itself is rather cosy and we have found it difficult to get a table but they are happy to serve you food at the bar. The bar is surrounding their kitchen so you can see them preparing the food, this makes the experience all the more mouthwatering and last time resulted in difficult decisions when it came to ordering. I would recommend it to everyone and we will definitely be going again.

“Delicious meal in pleasant surroundings”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

This restaurant is tucked away down one of the little alleys off the High Street. It is relatively small so probably best to book. The food was very good and the service friendly. Price good, so very good value for money.
