We spent a week in Florida starting in Key West then on to Naples and spent our last night here in Key Biscayne. Needless to say we had some great food, but this was my absolute favorite. I love Mexican food and am used to my local restaurants run by our awesome Mexican friends, but this place was just so... More

This is a great Mexican restaurant on the grounds of the Ritz Carlton, Key Biscayne. If you like $17 margaritas and high priced food you will love this. The beach setting is magnificent so you truly get what you pay for here

I have been to the Cantina several times as a long time resident of Key Biscayne. With such limited options on the Key I find myself returning and each time regretting it and vowing never to return. The view and setting bring me back but the food, drinks and service is simply awful and not worth the price at all.... More

Lovely setting, didn't realise it was in the grounds of the ritz-carlton and normally that would put me off but it made no difference, it is a very chilled out restaurant with friendly staff and in a great beachfront setting - a great little Mexican soundtrack in the background. And the food... I had the seared scallops on a bed... More

This restaurant staff friendly, the food was good and the location near the beach was just great. You could see the cargo ships and cruise ships going out. Really neat.

As a miami resident I have been coming to this place with my family for the past 7 years on a regular basis. Good has been consistently good I would say, the spot is truly one of the best in miami, but the service is getting worst and worst. The staff is very nice, no question about it, but way... More

Great atmosphere and food was better than an average Mexican but it is the Ritz-Carlton so not cheap!

This was the highlight of our stay in the hotel. The fish tacos were amazing as well as the guacamole. If you like spicy food, ask for the chef's special hot sauce. It was outstanding! So yummy we ate here 3 times in 3 days! I would come back just for the tacos!

We are there our first night we had tacos and fajitas, fried calamari and 2 beers and it was $131.00. The food was good and the service was also good but I don't think that warrants the hefty price tag. I went off the resort the next day and found equally good food for half the price. The atmosphere is... More
