Blanco Cantina – Calgary Kensington
Blanco Cantina is the ultimate central spot for socializing and watching the game - we are always down to fiesta, whether you grab a quick bite or stay all night. Our tequila & spirits collection is off the hook, with over 100 hand-selected choices. We believe nachos should be as individual as you are, so build your own! We love brunch (ahem, day drinking) so join us weekend & holiday from 11am - 3pm. We have classic margaritas on the rocks, slushy concoctions, and a fun selection of feature cocktails & drinks.

Awesome margaritas. We were running late and they didn’t make a fuss!
Location great. Food , drinks and service mediocre at best. Kensington has better food options and Calgary had better Mexican options. I won’t be back.
Not too good service
I dont know if it was just a off night but service was terrible and the food was warm, ut not hot when it came out... i recommend going to 17th Ave location instead
New location is great, great food, amazing margaritas!!
Thank you for the review! I am glad you enjoyed your time with us, and we hope to see you soon! Check us out for Happy Hour from 3-5 and 9- close everyday for discounted margaritas, draft beer, tacos, and tequila!! See you soon.
Server Vanesa was great. Happy hour tacos fantastic. Street corn was the most unpleasant experience, it was frozen corn rolled in Dorito crumbs, chucks of feta not hot or cooked piled on top, smelling like natural gas, from the supposed grilling ....they initially came out cold were sent back and came out luke warm and mushy....absolutely should mot be on the menu if fresh product with authentic ingredients aren’t being used. Really ruined our overall dining experience.
Good food. Music was very loud couldn’t hear each other talking. Our service was not the best.
Love the Blanco at this location. The tacos and Margs are so good.
The tacos were great, unfortunately the service was not. They also were out of at least 5 beers that they had on the menu. I would not return to this location.
Awesome place for tacos and margaritas. Food, service, and the patio were great. Can't wait to go back.
Lively atmosphere. At times, hard to hear the person sitting across from you. Amazing food and deals!
Great addition to the neighborhood. Great vibe and great food and drink. Highly recommend checking out Blanco in Kensington.
We enjoyed our evening and dining experience at Blanco. The food, service and atmosphere was great!!
Restaurant is nice - good seating and layout. Food was a disappointment.
I definitely recommend the pork tacos! They are delicious!
Happy hour half price is the best!! Location in Kensington is great. Small but cute inside. Service was great!
Great family lunch
Patio experience was great!
The mixed drinks were incredible. The mixologist on the night we were there could win international awards! The food was very good. Had the traditional tacos. Going to be more adventurous next time. Glad to see this restaurant as part of the Kensington food scene! JB
So much great energy in the room! Could not have orchestrated a better experience for a first date! Also, our server Andy is basically my new best friend! She was so happy energetic and fun loving!
The service was horrible! Our server was too busy dancing around the restaurant and hanging out with staff than serving anyone. The table side guacamole was flavourless and not made table side-and she forgot the chips. We were given our meals 15 minutes before we were given cutlery-everything was ice cold. Our glasses were always empty for at least 20 minutes before asking for refills...in light of a horrible economy and opening a restaurant mid-pandemic, we would have thought that there would be more effort...
Super awesome experience! The watermelon Marg is amazing and the food is 🔥🔥🔥 check out halfy hour!!
The food was really good, only the jug of margaritas is not quite a jug so not sure it's worth the $60.
I've lived in Kensington for over 20 years and Blanco is a great addition to the neighborhood. Great food, great drink, and great service, I'm confident Blanco will be a staple in the area for many years.
Bartending wasn’t the quickest. Waited for our drinks longer than we should. Vanessa and Alison were amazing!
