For you vegetarian folks out there, you'll find a veggie sandwich that's pretty darned good. Fresh bread and vegetables (with cheese). Also, our order of guacamole was good. For you vegan folks, sorry, no dice.

We had margaritas as well and they were pretty good. They're frozen (blended) and the server confirmed that the ice was made of purified water (phew!). Normally, we prefer ours on the rocks, but we didn't get the chance to ask about that.

Perhaps our server was having a bad day, because he was inattentive and very short with us. Yes, we're gringoes and yes, we were speaking clear, polite Spanish. So i don't think this was a language problem.

Overall, go there for the proximity to the square and the buzz of being in town, but not for the service.

We enjoyed a couple cervezas at La Cantina one evening. Sat outside and watched that happening in the square. Nice little place to check out!

This place is great for watching the goings on in the square while having a drink and perhaps ordering anything but a sandwich. Where is the meat? Our sandwich literally had such a thin slice of meat we had to go in search of it to ensure it was actually there.

Service was fast, but that could be because it wouldn't have taken long to make our sandwich.

Again the other food may have bee better but stay away from the sandwich.

Bad, pre-made, overpriced margaritas. Pushy, condescending, sneery waiters. Bill was added incorrectly and finally we put down the correct amount and left. Valladolid has too many nice places to eat to just put up with this for the great people-watching location.

We do not pre-make anything at La Cantina, our Margaritas are made at time of ordering from good reposado tequila (Viuda de Romero, Xalisco or Mision) and the price is $55. Pesos or the equivalent of $4.40 US dollars.
If we made a mistake in adding your bill, we apologize.
Our staff is by no means pushy, nor condescending or sneery, because of their Maya background, they might have had a difficulty in communicating as their English is limited, but I know they try their best to be of service. Your comment in general is so far from reflecting the reality of our restaurant, that it hardly deserves an answer.
