Fun atmosphere with good food, HUGE margaritas (enough to share) and good service. We got the cucumber margarita (I cannot remember the actual name) and the cosmopolitan margarita. Two of us split each of them. Food was nothing extraordinary, but was good. We had good...More

Margaritas are gigantic. They claim the large margaritas are with Patron tequila which I believe so. Friendly staff. We listened to their recommendation and was a not disappointed. It doesn't have the greatest ambience but wonderful view and good food.

If you need a place to get a quick drink and something to eat, then Cabo Cantina will probably fit the bill. Unless you're a local, one visit is enough. While the servers are very pleasant the food is mediocre at best.

Swung by here for drinks after visiting the pier and driving the PCH. We sat at the bar, the bartender was quick and attentive and super friendly. Margarita was mixed strong but tasted great. My buddy and I ordered some wings for a snack. They...More

We visited this restaurant while vacationing in Newport Beach. The staff was friendly, the drinks were strong, the food was excellent, and the price was reasonable. We went during happy hour and enjoyed two-for-one drinks. They have an extensive margarita menu.
