'Latin culture is vibrant, energetic and there is always a cause for celebration. Inspired by multiple cultures across South America, Comuna Cantina isn’t just a dining experience – grazing over good food and sipping delicious drinks is a way of life. We offer a range of tacos, burritos, quesadillas with a full cocktail and bar menu. It’s all about Latin America Street Food and a viva la Vida attitude. The high-energy buzz in the atmosphere is like no other Latin-inspired. The bright and lively interior is paired with music so catchy you’ll be shimmying at the table. In fact, at the venues, the staff say, “BUT FIRST, WE DANCE!” – and there’s no need to save it for the weekend. At any time during the week, the place is PUMPING WITH GOOD VIBES'

The food was delicious and the staff were super friendly. My only issue was we were seated at a booth which wasn't the most plus-size or pregnancy-friendly seating and made it difficult to get in and out from the table. Would definitely come here again as the serving sizes were huge and the drinks were incredible would ask for a different table next time.

Although the staff were lovely, a lack of communication meant my friend and I were asked by 4 different staff members for our order…which we had placed and waited 15 minutes for. We were seated right down in a back corner (at a dirty table which had to be cleaned) which meant there was so real atmosphere. Drinks were your standard price although we only stayed for one. Overall, not the most amazing experience.

We came here for my daughter’s 20th birthday with family snd friends. It was a great night out - not super fancy or expensive, just right. Funky vibe with a DJ, we had outdoor seating, which was better for noise levels/we could talk. Service was wonderful - our wait staff were attentive and very friendly. Drinks/drink selection was great, food was wonderful too. Overall a great night with family and friends.

Bottomless Margs and Moves experience, overpriced for some dry tacos and only 4 drink options to choose from, staff were not so friendly, two of the girls on the floor were lovely and tried their best considering it was a bit busy, however drinks took way to long, 15-20 minutes waiting for what’s supposed to be “as many drinks in 2 hours” we each had 5 drinks in that time could get more elsewhere for a real bottomless margs experience, so definitely not worth it. Atmosphere wasn’t that great no “moves” as per event description with repetitive music and no hype or excitement from the team.

I would say 3.5/5 stars. The music was way too loud, to the point where my partner and I were sitting next to each other and couldn’t hear each other. We also could barely hear the waiter and visa versus - resulting in us being given the wrong food. The nachos were average, the chicken meal that we received, but was not what we ordered, was delicious so not all that bad that they got our order wrong. The drinks were very strong and tasty, and super cute - great for photos. Food decently priced too so that was good. Overall, I probably would only go back for pre-drinks (not dinner) and I would need to be outside. It is way too loud inside near the bar, I hope this is amended in the future for other patrons.

I booked Comuna Cantina for dinner to surprise my girlfriends by asking them to be my bridesmaids. When I called them last minute, freaking out and trying not to be seen with the gifts while getting out of my Uber, Chloe took it upon herself to help me. She met me at the Uber, hid the boxes and delivered them to my table a couple of cocktails later which made the experience so much more special. She did all of this while completely under the pump as the venue was packed. Not only Chloe but all staff were amazing, the food was nice, cocktails unreal and the atmosphere was an absolute vibe! Thank you comuna cantina. I will 100% be back.

I love Communa! Usually I would rate everything pretty high.

But we went on awful day when it was windy and cold outside. I'm heavily pregnant and I was given a high table when there were seats available inside. There wasn't enough heaters outside.

We sat out the back so it wasn’t too noisy. Shown the QR code for menu but unclear how to order. Tried online but not for dine in. Was table service just no one came to serve us- all forgotten out the back. Oh and table was really wobbly ! Otherwise ok.

I just felt we were rushed off our table and we hadn't even been there an 1hour. I was appproched twice and we hadn't even finished our drinks. I know you may have had a lot of bookings but rushing everyone off isn't going to get those customers to come back. Plus we would have spent more only we were rushed off.

Booked a table a week in advance. Then tried to call everyday after to add numbers ... to no avail. Emails... no response. Finally got through on the day of and was told I had to send another email... what a nightmare process that was! Upon arrival we were told the usual 2 hours for groups over 10ppl didn't apply tonight and we had to be out in 1.5hrs (even though we were 14/15 people). Then 1 hour into our time we were told abruptly that we had 25min left, before they would ask us to leave. We were still waiting on our food at that stage which didn't arrive for another 20min or so (food which we ordered immediately upon arrival). They allowed us to eat but the restaurant needs to have a serious think about their booking times and processes as overall this was a horrible experience (especially for a group that most likely spent over $600).

We absolutely loved dining here! To begin with service was excellent and received all our drinks and food very quickly! Vibes were excellent and the staffs recommendations were delicious!! However we paid the bill and left and then got a phone call accusing us of skipping out on the bill? It didn’t really sit well with us because we were contacted on a mobile number and greeted with “are you coming back?! You haven’t paid!” Which was confusing for us, no explanation of a glitch or mistake was given. Once I text through a photo of proof of payment we got no reply? Really upsetting because we absolutely adored our overall experience and would love to come back! However, that will be hard if we are blacklisted for skipping out on the bill (even though we paid??) apart from that we LOVED it! And hope we will be allowed back 😅 ❤️🕺🏽

Couldnt talk with our friends because it was very very loud. What's the point of having a sit down restaurant when you can't have a conversation?
