For nearly a decade now, Baja Cantina has been serving the very best in Mexican cuisine to local spice lovers and Tex-Mex fans in Sydney’s Glebe. Popular with students, Baja Cantina down Glebe Point Road dishes up mind-blowing burritos, tacos and cocktails that fill the gap without costing an arm and a leg. With numerous options for vegetarians, Baja Cantina is the perfect place to bring the whole crew for a generously apportioned evening of authentic flavour and creative drinks.
Chef and founder Robert Comings opened Baja Cantina to bring authentic California-inspired Mexican cuisine to the hungry masses on Sydney’s Glebe Point Road. Featuring its very own beer garden, Baja Cantina is a lovely place to while away the summer days with an ice-cold beer in hand. Visit the restaurant after 6pm for Mexican food like you’ve always dreamt of, with plenty of weekday specials that make dining at Baja Cantina affordable and accessible for Glebe’s large student population.
Perfect for diners who like eating big, Baja Cantina churns out hefty portions of Mexican cuisine without ever compromising on the quality of the ingredients. You won’t find canned beans or vegetables at this popular eatery – all of Baja Cantina’s dishes are made with the highest standard of quality, with special attention paid to diners who have food allergies or dietary restrictions. We recommend the baja fish tacos for all the seafood lovers out there, or the chimichanga (deep fried burrito) with your choice of filling for times when calorie counting is of no interest. Located in Sydney’s Glebe near Victoria Park, the cuisine at Baja Cantina should not be missed.
Friendly staff, big portions, lively vibe. Bookings only taken at certain times but walk-ins were available depending on availability. Beer garden out the back looked great but no one was there on a Wednesday early night.
Lovely food, lovely drinks, often live music. Most of the staff is super service minded. Lovely colorful mexican interior. My favorite restaurant in Sydney, thanks to the amazing food.
Always love the food here. Good size meals and delicious
Love this place! Yummy food and great atmosphere! Parking is convenient too and reserving a table is easy to do too. Big or small groups it's a good night!
This place has some of the best & most authentic Mexican in Sydney. We absolutely love it there. The atmosphere is great (loved the live music tonight) and the wait staff is friendly. Unfortunately, tonight they were also really hard to catch - flagging down a server for anything we needed challenging, and there were a couple of mixups with items we ordered. This is a rare occurrence, though - usually the service is just fine. Think we just caught a particularly busy night. We'll definitely be back, and if you want authentic Mexican (not Aussie-style Mexican fusion, but solid Mexican food you'd get at solid Mexican restaurants in the U.S.), this place is a great choice.
7 of us really enjoyed the mexican dinner at Baja Cantina on last Saturday night. Food (corm chips guacamole, calamari, baja salad, steak burrito, prawn fajita) and drink (jug of sangria) were plentiful to share and authentic mexican delicious. Service is fast and friendly. Would definitely come back.
Baja Cantina is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. They have fast service, delicious food and reasonable prices. The serving sizes are enormous so be warned. Also if you get the 'fajitas' get one between two, I made that mistake once, never again.
Had a really great evening at Baja Cantina as always, the food was delicious (the queso dip in particular is to die for) and the service was incredibly quick and friendly. Would highly recommend this place to all, best Mexican in the area
Baja Cantina has a fantastic, vibrant atmosphere and great tasting food. Seating indoors and out the back in the leafy green courtyard. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu and even better when paired with a jug of sangria!
Baja Cantina is always amazing! The food never disappointing, the service is always great. The burrito is always a top pick with the mixed dips and corn chips to start with! The cheese dip will change your life!
