The Margaritas are fantastic. Food and service are great. This is my third time returning and now is my favorite Mexican Place.

Maka was awesome. One of the most enjoyable experiences.

I finally made it to this place, after all my bellyaching and raving I've heard! The ambiance is what seals the deal! You sit outside, in the breeze and sun, enjoying food, friends, and happy hour. I felt at the beach, despite the lack of sand.

I ordered a shot of Patron, 2 Dos Equis, and some very delicious fish tacos. Even though I wish I had gotten there earlier, luckily the line was gone by the time I did finally arrive. There were a lot of people, but it didn't feel crowded to me, which is good. Our server, Robin, was on point and constantly checking on us to make sure everything was cool. All in all, I love this spot and can't want to go back.

We walk down here from work for lunch sometimes. The po-boys and tacos are delicious; and they have Corona specials on Weds. The atmosphere is flip-flops and shorts, and it's a nice waterfront oasis from the hustle and bustle of DC.

This place is so much fun! The live band on Saturday rocked it with covers from Elton John to Ben Folds. Seriously, sitting outside with a gorgeous breeze drinking strawberry margaritas is paradise in DC. We all picked out the yachts we one day hope to own. The crowd was a crazy mix of old boaters in dock shoes and polos and college kids in flip flops and polos with us landing somewhere in the middle. All I can say is good times!

This is a really fun place. I live nearby and and bring friends here a lot. They always say, "Wow! This doesn't really feel like D.C. It's more like the Bahamas!" It's true, you feel like you're on a little island somewhere. The fish tacos, hamburger, and drinks are all just fine. And the deck is a terrific place to have fun and be seen! Enjoy!

It??s not the beach, or the ocean, but for being a couple minutes from the Metro, it will do. The restaurant deck juts out over the docks; and an impressive panoramic scene of the river, boats and parkland isn??t like anything I??ve found here yet. I tried to pretend it wasn??t the unsavory Potomac, and I succeeded. My dining mate insisted that I get the fish tacos, which come with lime, sour cream and salsa. The two tacos were tasty, but somewhat small, and I thought overpriced at $11. Service was also a little lax (and really sweaty), but I guess that wasn??t a surprise at a really laid-back, outdoor restaurant in the DC summer. Lunch wasn??t as beer-filled as this place seems to get, but I can surely see a great happy hour with a few Tecate beers and a noisy crowd watching the sun go down on the river.

I really liked this place. Joined some Yelpers for a Cinco de Mayo extravaganza and had a great time. I ordered a shot of Patron, 2 Dos Equis, and some very delicious fish tacos. Even though I wish I had gotten there earlier, luckily the line was gone by the time I did finally arrive. There were a lot of people, but it didn't feel crowded to me, which is good.

The atmosphere is terrific here - I really felt like I was transported to a beach bar. Since I have had little time at Florida beach bars, I'll say that it made me feel like I was at one of those Ocean City bars on the bay side. The whole place was on a wooden deck at the end of a dock and had a very festive feel to it. All the staff I encountered were very friendly.
So next time you are looking for a relaxing and fun place to spend a sunset at, this would definitely be the place!

I LOVE Cantina Marina! It's a wonderful place to go in the summer. It's right on the water and just really laid back. It feels like being at the beach. The food is good. But I just love the location!

Casual waterfront dining at it's best!: You can't beat the food the atmosphere or the friendly service at this best-kept-secret on the Southwest Waterfront. Great after work and weekend afternoons. It's also a great place to throw a party--they'll cater everything.

While taking advantage of the warm weather this past week a few friends and I decided to visit Cantina Marina located on the SW waterfront. Although I very rarely visit SW D.C. I have to say my experience at Cantina will have me coming back more often. The cool breeze from the water as we sat out on the deck was the perfect escape from D.C. that I needed after a long week of work. Sitting on the dock on the waterfront while drinking margaritas felt like we had driven out of the city for vacation. The food was excellent (especially their burgers!). I would be careful when ordering the firecracker calamari, they are not lying, it is VERY spicy! After a few margaritas and a few hours of great conversation I realized what an oasis Cantina Marina can be when wanting to escape the stressful city atmosphere.

Pros: outdoor deck, vacation feel

Cons: first come first serve seating
