Food was really good, however not much spicy if you like spicy food, even the very spicy sauce they brought with the nachos was more in the mild side. Our waiter was really nice and very attentive however whereas the starters came in quite fast, it took a long time for the mains to arrive and the same with the... More

We're Americans living here in London and it's taken a long time to find a good Mexican restaurant with the true flavours and a darned good Margarita. We found it here, although when you order the "Three Taco" plate, don't expect three usual sized tacos like in the US -- these are quite small. But everything is so flavourful, it... More

We ate at the Cantina Laredo between theatre showings. The server was friendly and very attentive (Manuel I think), he recommended drinks to go with the food we had ordered. Service was quick and the food very tasty. Choosing from the pre-theatre menu we chose the pulled pork and the mushroom tacos for starter followed by chicken/steak fajitas and chicken... More

A lovely place to eat close to theatres,Covent Garden and the tube. Great ambience. The food is tapas and is delicious. Cocktails fabulous with their own take. Everything tastes fresh and homemade. They also prepare fresh guacamole at your table which we loved.

Description
Cantina Laredo offers something completely new, a sophisticated approach to traditional Mexican cuisine. Our ethos at Cantina Laredo is to blend old with new by using contemporary and traditional techniques to bring a modern twist to the authentic flavours from all regions of Mexico. The menu is a culinary exploration of Mexico's regional cuisines in search of Mexico's most incredible flavours. Traditional and contemporary techniques combine to produce an intriguing menu that pays homage to authentic Mexican flavours. Emphasis is on the bold and intense flavours with simple presentation using high quality ingredients. Dishes are authentic, but not traditional with a modern approach to recreate classic dishes and invent new ones. The menu has been designed to create a sophisticated, yet informal and relaxed dining experience. There is no set procedure on ordering, dishes are designed to be shared at the table or enjoyed individually.
