Atmosphere was pleasant, our meal arrived within 10 mins of ordering however after our meal was served this was the last time we seen our waiter. Had to flag down 3 other staff members before we actually got our drinks order. Our meal was nice

We were very excited to have a dinner at Catina however the portion of food was good but every thing comes out deep fried . The expectation of food quality was very low of what we pay.

When it comes to Mexican restaurants in Newcastle, Cantina is up there with the best. Get on down and try the Naked Burrito. The extensive menu has more choice than you could imagine, and even has a range of Italian meals and share plates making it the perfect restaurant for dining out. You can enjoy cocktails, mocktails and Margarita Monday's, where you get two Margarita's for the price of one.
