Dined on a Sunday night, receptionist looked unfriendly and annoyed. Once escorted to the table, we were served by a rude Spanish waiter (maybe supervisor, he had a different shirt from the others) who promptly advised us we only had 10 mins before kitchen would close (was 9 pm). After choosing one small dish for myself (his rudeness really put me off) he said in an arrogant way I could not order any more items. I would rather starve than being served in this way! Definitely not the warm service you would expect from a Mexican restaurant.
On another note, food was great. Modern, well presented and tasteful. Churros to die for. Restaurant looks pretty and elegant.
Very unique dining experience. Excellent food choice and quality. Large, airy restaurant - first class service. We are going back there in March. Excellent!
This is my third visit and it's always a consistent experience. Pleasant welcome, great service and most importantly the food is really delicious and inventive.
Love veggie fajitas and filling. come here occasionally as more expensive than normal resturants i go to. Nice mocktails and good dessert. some veggi options and luckyily i like them.
We had the set menu which included a delicious strawberry margarita. Had the aubergine fajitas and mushroom tacos--excellent. Great friendly service and a nice atmosphere.
We had a pre theatre meal, good choice on the menu and good value.
Why no Open Table points though?
Great food - we tried the weekend Brunch and is worth the value... Try the Chicken Quesadilla, Steak and Churros!
Good food and service. A little bit crowded and tables very close together which made the environment quite loud.
Their fresh guacamole is a must, micktails were great. Good service and very accommodating for large groups and child friendly.
Simply faultless. Superb food and superb service.
Amazing food. I have been dreaming about the food since I ate it. Really delicious cocktails. We shared a few medium plates between 2 of us to be able to try more dishes and EVERYTHING was amazing. I will definitely be back again.
From the outside, with a window onto a wall of tequilas displayed as beautiful objects, Cantina Laredo gives the impression that the food and ambiance will have some magic, but it feels a little flat and anticlimactic. There is so much potential for a little bit of fun and theatre given food and extensive menu for cocktails, tequila and mezcal on offer, but the team inside, while polite, seemed little connected to the potential for fun! The food is tasty but was cooling as it arrived at our table. This would be a good place for a large party that can create their own ambiance.
Gear place to have dinner or lunch. It is not local Mexican and rather international Mexican menu. However it is a great menu and you can't go wrong.
When we arrive we were told that they were closing and couldn’t sit us. After arguing that we had made the reservation thru OpenTable and it was confirmed, we were allowed to eat but told us we had to order quickly.
Steak fajita was very chewy. We could not enjoy the food.
Have always loved this place but last night the service was frustratingly slow. It took 30 mins to get our desserts and they only arrived after we asked the waiter to check on them. Then towards the end of the evening a heated argument broke out among the waiting and bar staff at the bar, which was loud enough to drown out conversation at our table. Food was good, as always, but it was really let down by the service.
Very disappointed by the welcome - the staff were uninterested upon my arrival. Furthermore they clearly hadn't noted my request regarding my seating preference so had to refuse their seating suggestion. The waitress serving was very welcoming and helpful unlike the rest of the staff especially the managers.
The food was pretty average compared to other Mexican fare I have experienced in London.
Upon departure they couldn't even be bothered to say good bye.
Overall an average experience.
Starters & small plates good. Fajitas very average sadly. A nice atmosphere.
Had a fabulous pre theatre meal with my girlfriend. Started with Margaritas and i had a 3 course pre theater and she chose from A La carte menu.
Thie atmosphere was superb as night with Christmas parties and we did not mind the noise. We were there at 5 pm and finished in 2 hours before our Musical started.
Great Service and excellent food.
Starter = go for Guacomole prepared at the table and for dessert go for Churros. They are excellent.
Great food and incredible flavours. Maybe put a radiator on, we had to sit in our coats, cold resturant.
Amazing as always!
Fabulous meal! Really great selection of dishes and delicious food. The staff are super lovely and overall relaxed atmosphere.
came here for a bottomless brunch with my boyfriend. Atmosphere was exactly want we wanted. Service was amamzing and the drinks and food didnt disappoint.
The food is always delicious but the service(usually good) was very poor last time. Our waitress seemed annoyed by any question, did not bring all dishes and we had to ask twice for a missing dish. I understand it is not an easy job but she defintely could have done a better one
Loved the restaurant, food, service, ambience! Took my best friend here for her 28th Birthday and the food was amazing. It was slightly pricey, the food and drinks were great. I will definitely be coming back.
3rd visit and Cantina Laredo never fails to deliver excellent food and service. We went as a family to celebrate my daughter's 18th and it couldn't have been better - a real treat and already looking forward to our next visit!
I imagined this place might be more atmospheric but it is a bit canteen-like, brightly lit. Some of the food was excellent, some was merely ok (one sensed it wasn’t made with passion). The service was difficult to understand and not particularly attentive.
Food took over an hour to arrive and we had to leave without eating anything! Horrendous service. Avoid pre-theatre for sure!
Of all the restaurants that I have booked through Open Table this shows up more times than any other in my account history. Why? Because it is a great place to eat before the theatre providing excellent food, service and if you dine off the pre theatre menu very reasonably priced.
Food was fresh and tasty but overall a little underwhelming. Margeritas lacked a bit of punch. £50 brunch deal a touch overpriced. Service deteriorated when restaurant became busier. Would go again for guac and cocktails.
Really goood food. Suitable for friends to hang out
Great location for theatres. Welcoming staff. Superb service. Mariano outstanding. Wide array of food option; some really delicious. Generous portions. Would go again.
Ambience is nice after the re-fit but the food seems to have gone downhill a bit. I was sad that the menu no longer contains the chicken mole or some of the warm salads. The tacos we ordered were tasty but quite dry, and the substitution of Nutella for mole disappointing.
Really enjoyed my dinner at Cantina Laredo. I am a great fan of Mexican Cuisine and was definitely not disappointed with the variety of dishes, which were very well executed (combination of spices/flavours, quality & presentation). It's impressive that they have so many different guacamoles for starters! They offer a good choice of cocktails and wines too. My friend and I were very well looked after by Amina (Waitress), who also kindly helped us when there was a confusion with a certain dish order.
The ambience was perfectly suited to our needs: jovial but not overly noisy, therefore able to hold a conversation and hear each other (which unfortunately is difficult these days!).
Would definitely recommend to friends and business acquaintances.
I was given a gift card for my 40th birthday as I wanted to try authentic Mexican. Food was great. Service was friendly and efficient. Would recommend for something different on a special occasion. My husband told the waiter that it was my birthday, so dessert came out on a happy birthday plate with candles.
Food was great. I had a steak taco, steak was perfectly cooked. Only the portion was little small. (3 small soft tacos on a plate) If you are hungry prepare yourself to order more. Margarita (lime) was great. Service was fantastic. I ll go there again.
I have been to the restaurant many times but on this occasion I found the food bland and disappointing.
Best Mexican food and drinks to find in London. My only negative comment might be about its location, as it is located in a very touristy and crowded area in central London. Hopefully they will open a branch in a quieter location in London.
Food was excellent as always
