The restaurant incorrectly marked me as a no show which I then had to rectify with open table. Other than that, the service was ok, although some of the waiters were waiting around outside for some bizarre reason and not to greet people coming in. The guacamole and dessert were delicious. However the mains were very average and pretty bland. We were advised on a signature dish (tempura prawns) which were uninspiring. They say you can’t get great Mexican food in London and unfortunately CL does not buck this trend.
Best TexMex food I have found in London! The guacamole, queso and steak fajitas were all very good.
Slow and t
Super friendly staff, food was very tasty and the mocktails divine. Maybe a little on the pricey side, but worth it.
As always, very good food - this is why we return so frequently, we are rarely let down. This time, the experience was made even more special by our waiter, Diogo! Nothing was too much trouble, he was both attentive and inventive, and he went out of his way to ensure that our experience was memorable. This was particularly important because although my wife and I have been to Cantina Laredo many times, this was my son's first visit, and it was a special occasion for him. Suffice to say that he (my son) will be a frequent visitor to Cantina Laredo as well in the future! Way to go, Diogo!
Great place but a little pricey for Mexican food!
I went with 2 colleagues for dinner at 6.00pm on a Friday evening. The experience was brilliant; the food was excellent - fresh and nicely cooked for all three meals. Service was prompt and polite. We really enjoyed our visit and will certainly be returning.
This was my second time at the restaurant. Both times I chose steak (t-bone the first time and steak with habanero butter more recently). They were cooked to perfection each time. The creamy potatoes were nice too.
My friends chose from the pre theatre menu and went for the chicken tortillas and vegetarian tortillas which they loved. Fajita mains were ok.
Food is average. Service was awful.
Went for a 2 course pre theatre menu but the food took so long we didn't have time for the dessert! Food v overpriced. Go to Dishoom next door instead!
Food was great!! Loved the guacamole selection and a mixed variety of entradas and main. Slightly disappointed with the churros, they were too oily.
Great service and good ambience
A bit noisy around, customers in the table next to us were shouting instead of speaking
Lousy tasteless bland food..I mean hullo...were in a Mexican restaurant !!!??? Portions are tiny, irregular fillings..fillings also are just filled with half fillings..trying to be different..but guys youve got it all wrong !
Also when bookings for 2 people..you dont give a bar seating..when 50% of the restaurant is empty..!!
You dont treat me well..theres noway im coming back..youve just lost a customer..!
Worst Mexican restaurant in London. Extremely expensive, very small portions, tasteless, doesn't feel like a Mexican at all. We ordered 2 pre-theatre menus. Tacos de platano, greasy and raw inside fried plantain dough with beans inside??? (I could even tell if there was something inside). Pulled pork mini buns, which were like tasteless burgers. For main: marinated ribs, which were the dryest ribs I ever tried and rib-eye tacos, really a scam. For dessert they have a brownie with boiling caramel. I dont know who was the genius that put together brownie + boiling caramel, but its really dabgerous, my fiance burnt his tongue really bad.
Recommendation: Wahacas is 100 times more tasty and cheaper.
Good food, very good service
Good food, great atmosphere, central location
We dined at Cantons Laredo after a visit to the theatre so didn't arrive until 22:00. Our welcome was warm & we found all the staff that we encountered to be friendly.
The speed of service was good & the food was of an excellent standard.
Overall an enjoyable experience.
Great location, fab food, well looked after. Highly recommended.
Had lunch with a friend. Have eaten here many times so have not been disappointed as yet. It was very quiet but I guess, being the Easter hols. and all the road works and building works, it has inevitably had an impact.
Good food, modern twist on Mexican fare, pleasant environment, a little pricey
Lovely food & great service, the only negative I have is you are quite packed in as the tables are close together
Lovely food, great service. Amazing frozen margaritas. Definetely have one if you like margaritas. I had the raspberry one. Fresh guacamole is tasty but probably not worth the money. We also had steak fajita which was the best i had in a very long time. Would definitely recommend.
Great restaurant and amazing food!
Great food, favourite thing was the fresh guacamole that they prepare in front of you, definitely recommend!
Stumbled across this restaurant a few years ago and it’s now our ‘go to’ whenever we are in town. The table side guacamole is literally the freshest thing you will ever eat!
Always save room for the sizzling chocolate brownie 😋
Food was good although service wasn’t very attentive and quite expensive for what it was. The margaritas were a bit too thin on the alcohol!
Dined on a Sunday night, receptionist looked unfriendly and annoyed. Once escorted to the table, we were served by a rude Spanish waiter (maybe supervisor, he had a different shirt from the others) who promptly advised us we only had 10 mins before kitchen would close (was 9 pm). After choosing one small dish for myself (his rudeness really put me off) he said in an arrogant way I could not order any more items. I would rather starve than being served in this way! Definitely not the warm service you would expect from a Mexican restaurant.
On another note, food was great. Modern, well presented and tasteful. Churros to die for. Restaurant looks pretty and elegant.
Very unique dining experience. Excellent food choice and quality. Large, airy restaurant - first class service. We are going back there in March. Excellent!
This is my third visit and it's always a consistent experience. Pleasant welcome, great service and most importantly the food is really delicious and inventive.
Love veggie fajitas and filling. come here occasionally as more expensive than normal resturants i go to. Nice mocktails and good dessert. some veggi options and luckyily i like them.
We had the set menu which included a delicious strawberry margarita. Had the aubergine fajitas and mushroom tacos--excellent. Great friendly service and a nice atmosphere.
We had a pre theatre meal, good choice on the menu and good value.
Why no Open Table points though?
Great food - we tried the weekend Brunch and is worth the value... Try the Chicken Quesadilla, Steak and Churros!
Good food and service. A little bit crowded and tables very close together which made the environment quite loud.
Their fresh guacamole is a must, micktails were great. Good service and very accommodating for large groups and child friendly.
Simply faultless. Superb food and superb service.
Amazing food. I have been dreaming about the food since I ate it. Really delicious cocktails. We shared a few medium plates between 2 of us to be able to try more dishes and EVERYTHING was amazing. I will definitely be back again.
From the outside, with a window onto a wall of tequilas displayed as beautiful objects, Cantina Laredo gives the impression that the food and ambiance will have some magic, but it feels a little flat and anticlimactic. There is so much potential for a little bit of fun and theatre given food and extensive menu for cocktails, tequila and mezcal on offer, but the team inside, while polite, seemed little connected to the potential for fun! The food is tasty but was cooling as it arrived at our table. This would be a good place for a large party that can create their own ambiance.
Gear place to have dinner or lunch. It is not local Mexican and rather international Mexican menu. However it is a great menu and you can't go wrong.
