“Almost cured me from wanting mexican food”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

The food was simply uninteresting. The taco sauce with the free nachos was good, but otherwise I cannot recommend eating here.
The waiters were nice and helpful enough, but why they had to place a couple with a screaming baby right next to us in a restaurant with guest at only one other table I simply do not understand.
We asked to be moved to the other end of the restaurant, because otherwise we would have been unable to enjoy our food - eh, if the food had been enjoyable....

“Yummy Mexican Food”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Cantina Laredo is a good place to get Mexican food in Abu Dhabi. The table-side guacamole is delicious and between 8 of us, we devoured 3 orders of it! We all ordered different foods and everyone seemed pleased with their meal. The portions were a good size so some of us ended up taking food home. This may also be because we ate so many chips with the guacamole before the meal! We were celebrating a birthday and the staff does a lively song and brings a desert for the birthday person.

“Good-acamole!”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

A great place to eat Mexican (perhaps the best in Abu Dhabi!), and the best way to start is with the Guacamole made fresh at your table. Cantina Laredo offers a great variety of food and much of it that we have tried was really good.

Unfortunately, you wouldn't notice the restaurant set in a quieter part of the Khalidiya Mall unless you really went there.

And certainly good value for money.

“Excellent and authentic”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

Went here after visiting a couple malls and the Emirates Palace (I live in Dubai). Have to say that it was very good, prices were decent, food was fresh, and the staff were very nice.
