Cantina Captiva serves up delicious Mexican food and beverages with a tropical island flair!
Plus, they have the best Queso Blanco north of the border, so you must make sure you order some with your meal.
They are located on Captiva Drive, past Andy Rosse Lane, in the same shopping strip as Sunshine Seafood Cafe and Beach Stuff.
I love the casual and relaxing beach-shack look of the place. You can sit outside under a shaded patio, or inside the closed-in porch area by the windows.
A more intimate setting and the bar are further back inside the restaurant. Dollar bills that people have signed fill the walls .......... join the fun and add one of your own!
I love the food here and comparatively speaking, Cantina Captiva is reasonably priced, expect to pay approximately $12-20 per person for dinner.
The Queso Blanco is a melty, gooey, white cheese dipping sauce served with chips and salsa.
I much prefer the authentic homemade corn chips most Mexican restaurants serve over supermarket brands and Cantina doesn't disappoint ..... the chips are addictive and they also come with a freshly made and very delicious salsa.
I've eaten there several times and had the Shrimp Tacos and the Steak Tacos ......... both served with cabbage instead of lettuce for a nice and different twist.
My girls love their Rice and Beans .......... which are served with every meal.
Their Fajitas are the best! You can order beef or chicken ........ personally, I prefer the beef ........ which are slathered with onions, and red and green peppers.
They come out from the kitchen sizzling hot ..... you can get flour or corn tortillas, plus salsa, sour cream and cheese ....... yummy!
Of course, you'll find all your Mexican favorites .... burritos, enchiladas, chimichangas,quesadillas, tamales, tostadas, salads, wraps, guacamole, nachos, and house specialties and wings.
They are open everyday from 11:30AM-10PM for lunch and dinner. Who knew that a Captiva restaurant could have such great Mexican food?! Get yourself to:
