This is a step south of the border; Mariachi music and Latino classics echo through the reasonably priced, bright yellow space, which caters to a trendy crowd of young professionals and expats craving zesty Mexican cuisine. Brazilian coffee bean sacks cover the ceiling while neon Mexican beer signs, neon cacti, colorful sombreros and pictures of the Mexican rodeo complement the numerous Aztec figures dotted around the place. Usually busy, the combination of Tex-Mex favorites and the upbeat atmosphere is a crowd pleaser; reservations are recommended. You can expect a reasonably priced menu offering standard Tex-Mex fare: nachos, quesadillas, and burritos served with salsa and guacamole. Margaritas and Mexican beers are also available. Make sure to order the fajitas, which could possibly be the best you'll find this side of the pond. The staff is very friendly, attentive and efficient. Cantina is located on the edge of Lesser Town in the picturesque quarter of Ujezd.
