    Had a great dining experience at F&D Cantina. One of our fav Mexican Restaurants in the area. Food is tasty with nice size portions. Our waitress was very nice. It was only her 5th day on the job and she coukd have known more about the menu and tequilas on hand, but overall she was an attentive server.

    This was one of the best places to eat and get drinks. The bartenders were amazing. Food was phenomenal. Fresh and delicious. Drinks were made with fresh purées or juices. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

    Out of many Mexican restaurants that we have been to at Orlando in the past 3 years, this has been better and desirable, period.

    A neighborhood favorite spot! Our server was excellent, attentive and knowledgeable. We had the bacon jalapeños and trio dip for appetizers. Our entrees did come out at different times, that was the only issue. All food was nicely prepared and presented.

    Loved F&D Cantina. Made reservations for Sunday brunch with ease. We were seated as soon as we arrived. Food was very good, the steak & sweet plantain quesadilla was delicious. The decor is super cute, if you are into photos this is a great spot. Our server was great at the start of brunch but either got overwhelmed with other tables or totally forgot about us. We didn't see much of her after getting our food and had a hard time getting boxes & the check. That is my only complaint.

    I've always loved the colorful warm ambience with unique artwork and light fixtures! To add to that is the more than helpful and pleasant staff including their bartenders (incl Jessica), their manager (Mike) and another gentleman who I suspect is the owner but who denies it !(Mark?) Anyway, lovely times to be had there, food is good too!

    First time there but we’ll be back. The atmosphere is perfect. Our waiter Dave was pleasant and very helpful. I ordered the Steak Fajitas medium rare and it was the best. I’ve been to excellent steak houses that don’t come close. I was tempted to leave with the sombrero that’s perched on top of the cactus in the corner.

    We sat outside, which was great; especially while we were the only ones out there. The ambiance with the greenery and wall murals is really nice. The food and margarita was great. Our favorite was the Trio appetizer, which we added a fourth dip.

    We usually go in before we head to a show at Dr. Phillips Centre. Food is always great, service is great, they get us in and out quickly.

    Cool space, friendly staff, and good food. The meals took a bit longer than expected to come out, but the app (chips and queso) was out immediately and overall it was good experience. I would return again.
