Located in Glebe, ten minutes inner west Sydney suburb.

Hungry American ex-pats craving a Mexican fix have been raving about Baja Cantina. Chef and owner, Robert Comings was one such ex-pat himself, and his longing for the California-influenced Mexican nosh from home was what inspired him to hang up his chef’s whites at the Lowenbrau and open Baja Cantina. The restaurant is a bright and airy space, relatively lacking in the array of tacky Mexican knick-knacks usually associated with a Mexican restaurant: a quick scan reveals only one brightly coloured sombrero, though a collection of Tequila bottles has pride of place along one wall.

Forget about the greasy Mexican food that you’re used to in Sydney, Baja Cantina does it home-style and from scratch which results in flavoursome, authentic dishes. The Baja chipotle prawns go down a treat with an icy beer but if you want to stick to what you know, the nachos are famously good. A slow-baked chicken and cheese enchilada, smothered in a rich cream and fire-roasted chilli sauce, cries out for a slug of sangria after every mouthful. The timale, steamed in banana leaves, are out of this world. Step on through to the back and you’ll discover that Baja Cantina possesses a huge beer garden, which cheerfully beckons you to pull up a pew and settle in with some chips, queso and a few margaritas.

Baja Cantina - User Reviews


Baja Cantina is the best authentic Mexican Restaurant we have ever been to. The atmosphere is very inviting, the food is excellent, the Sangria is great, the staff are very friendly and the new owner Richard goes out of his way to please you. You cannot go wrong if you dine at this  16/10/2011
