Cantina Laredo

|
Gourmet Mexican food in Gulfstream Villiage.


What we had:

The table chips weren't fresh, but the salsas were nice and flavorful. We enjoyed a richly-smoked mild salsa and a nice, bright spicy salsa.

We ended up eating (chips) until we were over-stuffed.

My DH had the chicken and steak tacos--the chix was over-cooked but ok; the steak was well-seasoned and cooked to perfection. The tacos wete accompanied by nice fresh avocado, tomato that actually saw the sun and sides of really nice fresh black beans with cojito and bland-but-not-terrible Mexican rice. Nicely seasoned queso was served as an additional optional topping.

I had a chicken & shrimp dish--dry and bland chix with perfectly cooked shrimp, a poblano white wine sauce (good taste, but salty finish) and nice veg side with almonds that was not over-processed.


D├ęcor:

Nice, modern, austere.


Service:

The staff was all over the place; herds of them were walking back and forth during the meal - hopefully it was shift switch time.


Overall impressions:

Nice decor, decent American-ivied menu (read: cheese heavy). On the pricey side with an average plate price in the low 20s.
