This was our first time eating at the Cantina and we had a ball. We ended up going on a busy Saturday night, but we used the call ahead service, which worked great. We called a few minutes before leaving the hotel and although there was a line by the time we got there we only waited a few minutes... More

A notch above in rex Mex food. Great flavors with lots of kick. We went with a large family group plus young kids. The kids meals can be spicy too..so ask our server was excellent and told us the food would be delayed... and it was. We all enjoyed an excellent meal!

We absolutely love this place! We've been going here since they changed their name to the Cantina, it used to be called Neo's Cantina. This place is a must stop for us! Their margaritas are great, the service is great, we love their tomatillo salsa, and I always get the Buffalo Chicken quesadilla! Little secret if you're into hot stuff,... More

Order the Chicken Fajitas. Pate came out cool instead of steaming. Chicken was over cooked and very dry. Server dried off the plate then left immediately. The waitress did not show up to check on us until we were done. No drink refills during dinner. When she did come back i complained about the Fujitsu she said she was sorry... More

So sorry to hear your experience at The Cantina was far less than our best. It is our goal to delight every diner every time and we clearly missed the mark during your visit. I do hope you will consider giving us a try because I can guarantee you that is not our norm. More

Hostess told us 35 minutes more like 1 hour. We went to bar. Bartenders were nice and drinks were good. They finally sat us and waiter was so behind it took us 15 minutes for someone to take our order. We ordered immediately and got our food in about 35 minutes.

I went here with some friends for a late night dinner. The service and food was excellent. The fajitas were enough for 2 of us to split and still have some leftover. The options for a side dish was better than most places. The special grilled veggies was excellent and better than the same old rice and beans.

We arrived on a rainy Sunday evening. The place was not crowded. We chose to sit on the porch. There was one large group and one small family on the porch also. The service was poor for all three groups. We noticed how slow the waitress responded to their requests before we ever saw her. Finally, we got an order... More

Really good fajitas- portion sizes were very large! Fish tacos were tasty, as were the beans. I liked the coconut rice- and the roasted corn was also delicious.

Description
The Cantina at Historic Biltmore Village features handmade Fresh Mex and the only tequila bar in Asheville. We're a great choice for dinner with friends, a family gathering, or even a romantic evening with someone special. Our expansive menu offers handmade Southwestern favorites with a twist of Asheville. We use only the freshest ingredients grown locally when available and strive to be conscientious of our extended and immediate environments. We compost the leftovers and aim at being as sustainable as possible. Start things off with tempting appetizers like the Chiles Rellenos and our Ultimate Queso Dip, just to name a few. Cantina favorites include The Biltmore Chicken Quesadilla Best Ever Baja Fish Tacos, and vegetarian options like The AshVeggie Burrito. Have an event coming up? Let the Cantina help feed your guests with on and off site caterings at prices to fit any budget. We have a wide assortment of proven crowd pleasing buffets, and are happy to customize for specific requests. The Cantina is also an active member of our community. If you opt to donate one of your two sides offered with each entrée, The Cantina will donate that portion to a local food charity. The cash equivalent of one donated side can feed up to 6 of our neighbors in need. We at The Cantina are honored to be a part of Asheville and the unique enclave that is Historic Biltmore Village. Whatever brings you in, we hope you enjoy your meal and time spent in our company, and that you return again soon for Asheville's most unique and delicious Fresh Mex and Tequila Bar!
