Sad to see that the quality has degraded so significantly under new management. Tacos were soggy and lacked the flavor that should have been there for the price. Salsa and chips were decent but that's something that is hard to screw up. Lower prices would have made it more palatable. Lowering my rating from 5 to 3 stars. Hopefully things will improve or they were just having an off day...

On the way home from a day on the slopes we grab pick up. We had the fish tacos, duck tacos and Cantina sampler. I was hesitant at first about a “duck” taco but in the end it’s one of the best tacos I’ve ever had. Also the sampler had a dark salsa that was smoky with a hint of sweetness that I wanted more of. Really cool patio and inside - I look forward to visiting when I’m in the North country. Ohh ya- and the waitress knew we had kids eating as well and hooked us up with a couple monster chocolate chip cookies that were perfect end to a great day.

We were visiting charlevoix and stumbled upon this cantina in the side alleys and decided to get takeout. My husband and I got miscellaneous tacos and the sampler dips. Everything was absolutely delicious. We have not one complaint and each item we ordered was amazingly good, above par. The staff was very friendly and happy. Highly recommend this place!

Went here for the first time a few days ago with the family. Mixed reviews among us. Waitress was excellent, atmosphere was "kind of" drab, food was okay - cook did not look like she was happy that night but I do believe they are looking for a new cook. Menu is limited and drinks are small for the price. I wasn't too pleased with the chicken and vegetable quesadilla that I got but my husband and son like the enchiladas. Hopefully once things pick up, maybe things will be better and we may return.

Very tasty, with a decent variety of menu items. It is a bit pricy for what you get though. Service was wonderful.
