I've been here twice now. Love the busy atmosphere - always packed and lively. The fish tacos which are tasty - perhaps could be filled a little more. Staff are friendly although sometimes it's hard to get their attention! All in all awesome Mexican food - would recommend.

Food: Went here for lunch and ate the Guac and Chips, Fish Tacos and Chorizo tacos as well. All was very tasty, the guacamole was good and they give a substantial portion to go with the chips. Fish was tender, with a refreshing garnish and tasty sauce. Chorizo was really good and I would recommend trying these. A little bit... More

Wow! The tacos here are really really good. Portion sizes are huge and awesome, as the tacos are filled to the max. They have a lot of different types of tacos, more than other taco places I've been to like Grand Electric, Wilbur, La Carnita. I would definitely go again, definitely a nice change from going to the previous places.... More

Good Mexican food ... comparable to many good taco cantina's...order different tacos.... fish, chickens, beef, veggie....not a very big beer selection (should have Mexican beers)... funky setting... I would go again

I've been to Cantina a bunch of times, always a delicious and satisfying meal. Amazing tacos and burritos. The guacamole is awesome. It is on the pricey side though ($15 for 3 small tacos)

My lunch companion and I are both regular customers of the Junction and the Dupont location. Today, we stopped in at the Junction for a lunch. I entered with a coffee cup in hand, having stopped at a neighbouring coffeehouse beforehand. We were greeted and very curtly told that I was not allowed to bring in an outside drink. This... More

The place was really cool and I liked it a lot. They have a decent selection of Mexican beers and a pretty good menu. I had the chicken burrito plated. It was pretty good but I think I will try the handheld style next time. I thought the service was decent, though there is a little room for improvement (our... More

I ordered a bucket of Coronas and started off with some chips and guacamole. The guac and chips were perfect! Also tried a fish taco and short rib taco. The fish taco was my favourite. Fried perfectly and good balance of toppings. Both tacos were stuffed with meat and toppings. The best way to go is to order 3 tacos... More

This place is grossly overpriced. The shrimp tacos are very good, but the chicken taco with mango slices was disappointing. My fresh guacamole was delicious, but the portion was small and not worth the price. The portions are small. The service was average. The restrooms are downstairs and the floors are dangerous, as they are extremely slippery. The conditions are... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
The go-to area for new business start-ups, the spry and creative persona of the West End thrives along its streets. Its independent boutiques, galleries, restaurants, and shops offer brands that can't be found elsewhere. Buildings with ground floor consumer spaces sport up-top artist's lofts, and the West End attracts artists, designers, and fashion industry professionals to its living quarters. It is in the cross-hairs of gentrification, but still resisting it with ironic relish. Hot deals can still be found here on furniture and knick-knacks,. Its call to culinary glory is in its well-priced homemade Polish food, hosting Toronto's go-to spots for hot pierogis and cold borscht. High Park, the largest green space in the city, is a place for dreamers and poets to wander and rest, not to mention a number of energetic actors staging outdoor plays in the summertime.
