Simple, perfect, authentic Mexican food. That is Cantina, an upscale casual Mexican restaurant with authentic flavors and signature cocktails serving lunch and dinner.

The history of Mexican food is a long and diverse one. It is believed that authentic Mexican food might have been derived from the Mayan Indians. Corn tortillas with bean paste were a common food item; but they also ate meat, tropic fruits, and fish. In the mid-1300s, the Aztec empire was thriving, and though the Mayan food staples were still in use, chili peppers, honey, salt, and chocolate found its way into their cooking. Salsa was sold in Aztec marketplaces. salsa, the Spanish word for sauce, is uncooked and sometimes pureed until chunky, smooth, or chopped. Large red tomatoes, tomatillo, chipotle {a staple in the Aztec diet} and the avocado are found in the modern salsa and are the same core ingredients used in the past. We can thank the Aztecs for chocolate. It was through them that the Spaniards brought the product to Europe in 1657.

These historic traditions have helped shape the foundation of our menu and our styles of preparation. We think you'll taste the difference in our commitment to authenticity in every item on our menu.
