    Good to be able to have a drink in the marina and the margarita was tasty.
    Lack of communication between staff and myself. Charged AED25 for a tablespoon of guacamole (which we thought was a side for the burrito) and because we didn’t want to pay an extra 25 they took it away and I assume threw it in the bin, instead of leaving it for us. My veggie tacos were very small and had a lack of filling for a main course. I left hungry. Smoking inside restaurant (didn’t know this was even a thing anymore) so stank of smoke while eating. Shame as this could be a great addition to the Marina with a few tweaks.

    Listen up, folks, because I'm about to tell you about the best kept secret in town: Chalcos Cantina.
    The food is off the charts, the drinks are lethal, and the atmosphere is straight up wicked. They've got all the classic Mexican Food Truck dishes you love, but they also take things to the next level with creative and innovative plates that'll make your taste buds dance. And let's not forget about the drinks — the bartenders are mixologists in the truest sense, crafting cocktails that are as del

    Unfortunately I needed to update my 5 start review and change it to 2. This used to be my favourite spot for Friday chill. They used to have delicious burrito. At some point the quality dropped dramatically. I stopped coming but gave it a chance yesterday thinking that maybe they had some temporary issues. Unfortunately nothing has changed — the rice in the burrito was dry, the stuffing in general was not good. In addition we payed more than usually because not only they raised the prices but al – show

    I won’t even give any star if there is any option to do that. Be very careful with the drinks you order.

    We ordered couple of margaritas with premium tequila. Being my family in business of liquor, i have knowledge of it. We were standing right next to the bar while bartender was making our drink. We witnessed that he didn’t use the premium tequila we ordered. We ordered check. We were charged with premium tequila even though it was not used. We told them that we did not get premium one as we s

      Hi yah,
      I am sorry to hear about your experience. My name is Edgar and I am one of the partners here at Cantina. I have investigated what happened with your order. Yes you are right they made your margaritas with Jose Cuervo at the beginning but they realized the mistake and kept those margaritas back. They made the next round with Don Julio and that is what they served your table. I checked the cameras and that is correct. I am truly sorry with the misunderstanding. They made a mistake but they

    Was looking for a spot with drinks and apps while walking through the Marina.

    Service was great initially. Chips and salsa and the guacamole were excellent.

    However, things took a turn for the worse with our beverage order. We ordered 3 margaritas which were meant to have premium tequila over the house (Jose Cuervo). Being that we are on vacation, a little splurge was on our mind to begin with.

    My family is in the business, so watching the bartender/owner prepare our margaritas was painful b

    After living in Southern California I KNOW good Mexican food and this is GREAT. Great food, drinks and views into the marina. I highly recommend. The chefs are straight from Mexico and the food shows it. Also this place can be fun place to let loose on weekends when the DJ is there.

    Nice ambience, 'instagramable' place — best thing is the service. All staff greets you with their warm and bright smile. Dalila and Alejandra particularly stood out. Very proactive with nice, genuine, caring service. Kudos to this 2 passionate women

    Lovely food we has loads of starters all fab my favourite was cheesy corn on the cob, mains are good good selection of wines and spirits

    Price ok.
    Venue good.
    But service too eager.
    Main came 5 mins after starter, but then it took 15 mins to get a bottle of Corona…
    Nachos starter was delicious, however Enchiladas were terrible.
    Would recommend, but expect hit and miss for service/food.

    Cool place with affordable prices, something difficult to find in Dubai!
  • 10 november 2022, 3:02 pm
    Decent. HH is good value

    A bit loud. Prefer if you could also sit/drink outside.

    Rinconcito en Dubai con ambiente latino, buena música y comida abundante y rica. El servicio de camareras muy bueno, simpático y muy encantadoras.
    Tienen happy hour de Corona y tacos a probar en otra ocasión!

    Good food good drinks but it was a bit weird when the waitress handed me the card machine to add a tip when there was already a 10% gratuity added on my bill for a table of 2 people.
