Booked for a pre theatre dinner and was not disappointed. Having the guacamole made fresh at the table was a lovely touch and the meal as a whole was spot on.
The portion sizes are not massive but the food is tasty and done very well.
If i was in the area again and fancied a Mexican I'd definitely go back.
Great service, nothing too much trouble for the staff
Guacamole is a must! Good vegetarian options
Food was absolutely wonder!
Food was absolutely wonder! Our waitress was attentive and helpful but never over bearing. The standard menu may be a little pricey but certainly worth it. The pre-theatre menu was extremely good value for money. Would eat there again in a shot.
Mexican food with a difference.
I have been here many times and I'm never disappointed. I used to live in LA where Mexican restaurants are abundant and excellent, but Cantina Laredo is the best Mexican restaurant that I have ever been to. The food presentation is excellent and the flavors are exquisite. I highly recommend the Del Mar or the fajitas. The margaritas are the best!
Great dining experience!!
Amazing service and food, perfect for group lunches! Set menu is great value (loved the fact that they offer it on Saturdays too!) - highly recommend the CAMARONES CON TOCINO (bacon-wrapped tiger prawns with sweet potato sauce), CARNITAS TACOS, CASCABEL ZUCCHINI side, and APPLE PIE MEXICANO! Def going back to try the churros ;) & don't forget to order their top shelf guacamole!
I visited with my Grandma and mum, the former of who hates flavour and the latter who is a real foodie. The food was delicious, flavoursome and exciting and my mum and I really enjoyed it.
The staff were so accommodating that they took away the spice from my grandma's dish as well as replacing the tortillas for my wheat intolerant mother.
All in all, great service, fantastic food and all at a reasonable price.
Check it out!
Amazing frozen margarita's
Amazing frozen margarita's & guacamole made fresh at the table. Lovely waitress & tasty food
Fabulous Mexican restaurant
A great Mexican restaurant with a good number of vegetarian options. The ambience was very good. I would certainly recommend this to my friends. My new go to place in London for Mexican food.
Fantastic - again
This is the second time I've been to Cantina Laredo - it was fantastic once again.
Great food (especially the guacamole), great service and great cocktails! I would recommend the restaurant to anyone who likes Mexican food - much better than many other Mexican restaurants in London.
A pleasant surprise
I booked based on online recommendations and it did not disappoint. The restaurant was quite busy, had a long waiting list, so would suggest booking in advance. We got a booth, which was nice and spacious. The decor is somewhat modern, but true to Mexican modern style. The drinks were nice and came quickly, we had guacamole made on the table, quesadillas, which were very tasty, and then a variety of dishes. Highly recommend the carnitas and also the papas con crema which are seasoned to perfection. Churros for dessert are a real must, then for a constitutional walk around Covent Garden!!
Guacamole was amazing - the presentation was very slick and it tasted so good. Everything else was lovely. Looking forward to going back again.
Excellent food, excellent service.
I picked this restaurant online from a Google search and the good reviews on Tripadvisor to celebrate my birthday with family. I was not disappointed. Booking online was easy, they were expecting us, and even though we arrived early, our table was ready. The reception and the service was warm and friendly, the food and the cocktails were superb, and even though the restaurant was packed, service was in a timely fashion. There was loads to choose from on the menu, all of my party chose different things and were all impressed with their choices, especially the sea bass fish of the day dish. Overall, it was worth the price tag for a special occasion.
Great Food & Venue
I went to Cantina Laredo with a friend... We weren't disappointed.
The food was great - the special Guacamole starter being made infront of us was a great touch in itself. As were the half price cocktails.
The remaining food was equally great.
No complaints on the service either - they were very friendly and attentive.
Definitely worth a visit.
We've been in restaurant on friday evening, it was full of people (most of them without reservation), the rooms are well organized, the table not so close one to another. People inside, unfortunately, speak too loudly, creating a loud noise, obliging us to speak loud to hear our words and our very nice and gentle waiter to do so. The food was ecellent, but not very hot (as I like).
The staff were on the ball.
The staff were on the ball.
The Fajitas were amazing, the apple pie and chocolate Brownie were to die for..
As for the raspberry mojitos and cocktails mmmmmm , would highly recommend.
We all had the pretheatre
We all had the pretheatre menu which wasgreat value with a wide variety of choice. The service and the food was excellent. Will definitely go again and recommend to anyone going to London.
Everything was excellent!
From the prompt seating (we had reservations) to the really nice, friendly and efficient waitress to the yummy starters, mains and desserts - everything was just excellent. The only negative - and it's a small one - was a large group of women were seated in our area as we were eating and they were so loud and obnoxious! This isn't the restaurants fault, but they might've been told to book a room!
Πολύ καλό εστιατόριο στην
Πολύ καλό εστιατόριο στην καρδιά του Covent Garden σε τιμές σωστές για Λονδίνο.
Good authentic Mexican
Good selection of authentic Mexican dishes, including interesting and less common options. The guacamole they make at your table is especially delicious, as are the margaritas.
Lived Up to Expectations!
Not being a local it is always a little hit or miss on booking a restaurant that you don't know, but reading the reviews for this one, it didn't disappoint. The setting was great, lively but not too noisy that you couldn't have a conversation, the service was great (especially if you get Anne she was great!) and the food was great too! A constant flow of people made it a great atmosphere. We have a birthday celebration and it was a great way to end the evening. I can recommend the Expresso Martini's!! Looking forward to an excuse to book again!
I'm still dreaming about the food..
Service was great. The restaurant wasn't busy but filled up when we arrived. It was clean and looked good. The menu was varied. The food was outstanding. I have never eaten such a tasty meal in my life! My one criticism was that the table we had felt like it was in a bit of a corridor. When the waitress came to make the guacamole at the table, there was another waitress squashed in behind her doing the same for another table, and it suddenly felt awkward! I'd have liked a bit more privacy...the booths looked great but they explained that they'd already been reserved. However the price was reasonable, the food was fantastic and the service was great too. I'd heartily recommend.
Great food served with a smile
I really enjoyed my trip to this restaurant. The waiter was very friendly, was helpful and took an interest.
I am vegan and the waiter made suggestions about what I could alter on the vegetarian menu (yes there was a separate vegetarian menu).
The food was great. Started with guacamole which is made for you at the table. It looks so easy and quick! And there was plenty of food. I had fajitas and it was packed with interesting vegetables.
I would recommend this restaurant to others.
We took friends who live abroad - with their 15 year old son - to Cantina Laredo for supper, to show them something different (authentic Mexican food) in a setting that would make the young gent feel at home. What a hit! They loved the food. The service was great - really helpful with excellent advice on what to choose and how to combine things. And we made a new discovery - the Guadelahara Michelada - a bloody Mary made with beer - zingy and refreshing- we're addicted!!
Friday Night Out
Good food, service was attentive, cocktails lovely, quite noisy. Would definitely go again.
Best starters I have ever had in a Mexican restaurant.
Service was excellent.
Thoroughly enjoyed my meal here.
We arrived a little early
We arrived a little early but were shown straight to our table by friendly staff,despite it being a busy Saturday night. The lighting was a little low for reading the vast menu and the music a touch loud for easy conversation between six but it didn't detract too much. The service was faultless. The staff were helpful, knowledgable and friendly. The food and drinks came quickly but not so much so that we felt rushed as can sometimes happen. All six of us loved the food we had chosen..even a fussy 12 year old vegetarian! The guacamole made at the table was delicious and entertaining to watch. The cocktails were also heavenly. A great place to eat after a show.
Great late lunch.
Went here for husbands birthday, my sister in law was with us who is a chief and she loved it! Would def go here again, a fun lunch with great food, they also put a candle and wrote happy birthday on my husbands desert plate. Great meal..... Thank you.
Great for a night with friends
Great night, tasty Mexican food. Recommend the guacamole. Espresso Martinis lush. Excellent service. Great value.
Best Mexican Ever!
The food was outstanding!! Definitely worth getting the guacamole made at the table for a starter. I really want to try everything on the menu, everything was so good! I love Mexican food and this was the best I've had outside of Mexico.
Great Covent Garden eating
Really impressed with both the food and service. Guacamole freshly prepared at your table was a highlight. Fajitas for main were good but not too different to what I've had before but the apple pie dessert was amazing. Cocktail menu was good too.
Booked a table, arrived a little early but it was ready by the time we had ordered the drinks. Food was lovely, service was prompt and one of our party left a bag behind which was found and looked after until the next day
fresh food and courtesy above all in this resaturant.
I have to recommend guacamole sauce (spicy or not) to a good start.
the go as you likes tell you, I had fajitas with pescado, my family with different kind of meats, all were cool.
Def have to go back again.
The waitress was pure pro
Booked this restaurant for a post-theatre meal and was not disappointed. So glad we moved away from usual chain restaurants we use in London for a change and will definitely eat here again & again.
Service and welcome was perfect with a very helpful explanation of the menu.
We had our Guacamole mixed at the table and served with Tortilla Chips, very tasty.
I had fajitas (beef & chicken) with all the extras plus mexican rice and sweet potato sides. Husband had enchiladas which were equally delicious!.
Desserts were Pecan Brownie & Churros. Yummy.
We sat in really comfy seats with plenty of room and overall our experience there topped the day.
Another great night at the Cantina!
This was our third time at Cantina Laredo. The service is always fantastic - friendly and efficient, the ambience is great - lively, fun and relaxed, and the food is lovely - a wide selection of fresh, tasty and moreish Mexican food. The prepared-at-your-table guacamole is a must!
Drinks are fabulous - they've got a great drinks menu to satisfy whatever you fancy, be it beer, wine or yummy cocktails. I very much doubt this will be our last visit.
Excellent lunch party
Seven of us were treated to a fabulous lunch of creative, delicious and well presented food in a very warm and friendly environment. The staff were very attentive at all times and we were not rushed at all, allowed to savour the courses very much in our own time. Cantina Laredo is highly recommended.
Fantastic food - particularly the home made ice-cream in unusual flavours. Cocktails were a bit on the expensive side, but overall a great experience.
Nice Restaurant in Covent Garden
Seen this place a number of times but it's taken me a while to eat there. We went on a Tuesday evening and the place was quite busy. Really good vegetarian and seafood options as well as meats. The guacamole is made fresh at your table which is a really nice touch. I will go back again.
Great food! The fresh-made guacamole was a treat, and the starter platter along with the carnitas taquierias were absolutely filling and fabulous.
It was easy to get a seat even on weekday evenings, and I was also able to book a table for Friday evening merely hours earlier in the day.
The cloakroom service, not very common in London restaurants, was particularly helpful.
Great authentic mexican food
Very tasty authentic Mexican food. Would definitely recommend this restaurant :)
Love it love it
First time at Cantina Laredo and couldn't have had a nicer experience
Loved the choice on the set menu for pre theatre and loved the guacamole show making can't wait to return our waitress was lovely and made us feel welcome
Great night out
One of the best meals you'll get in the area. Great service too - no rush. Recommend for a group or a romantic night out.
A very enjoyable evening meal.
A very enjoyable evening meal. Our booked table was ready immediately we arrived and the attention of the serving staff was first class.
3rd time we've eaten here & not disappointed once. Food is excellent can recommend having the guacamole made at the table. Make sure you order sour cream as well. Service friendly & efficient. A great way to spend time with friends or enjoy time after theatre
Dinner with Friends
Amazing food and great service! Brilliant veg choices can't wait to try the other dishes on the menu :)
Best Mexican restaurant I have been to.
Thankfully no glutinous plop.
Delicious Mexican in London, good variety and fresh ingredients. Staff was accommodative especially that the restaurant was very busy but then again we booked 1 month in advance. Initially they gave away our table when we were 10 min late but later made up for it with giving us a booth within 10 min of arriving.
Fajitas, Nacho and guac, Flautas...all were superb. If you like churros, they are great here too.
Good quality food at a reasonable
Good quality food at a reasonable price is not easy to find around Leicester Square but Laredo has it. A good mix of regular mexican favourites and a few dishes you wouldn't get at the "chains". Starter platter very good. Cocktails were really good too and the service was great - didn't wait too long for courses but equally were not pushed out of the door at the end despite it being a very busy Saturday evening.
Really good Mexican restaurant, excellent service and very good food. Would recommend to friends and will definitely be back next time we are in London
It is a real pleasure to go
It is a real pleasure to go there: the food is delicious and the service is helpful and super friendly.
The Margarita is outstanding.
This time, we went on a Sunday evening and we enjoyed it more than on a Saturday evening, when there are mostly to much customers.
Family & friends Saturday lunch.
We loved the at-table prepared guacamole, highly recommended. Food good variety, good quality & value. Wine expensive. I would definitely return.
