Cantinflas is one of the few Mexican restaurants in downtown Greenville. They have great Sangria and pretty good food. It is relaxing to eat outside on the patio in the summertime!

The food was great! I loved the salsa. All of the veggies were fresh and the service was A plus. We will definitely be returning.

My husband and I visited here a few weeks ago and it was great. The black bean soup and my portobello quesadilla were delicious. Our waitress was attentive and our glasses were never more than half empty for long.

Pros: Healthy, Black Bean Soup is Yummy

Cons: None

The food was okay not the best. We had the chicken and mushroom dish the chicken was thin and very small for the price of the dish you would think the chicken would be a good size. When we ask for the manager, she told us she didn't see a problem with the protion or the price since we where downtown. The Manager could careless the waitress wasn't much better. I would not recommend this place at all! If you are looking for a good place with great food, Go to the resturant next door if you want good food and service.

I attempted managing this place for just a few short months . During this time , servers stole from the registered and came in whenever they felt like it and on top of that , the owner took this money out of MY CHECK. Terrible place.

I thought it was a total waste of money. Food was sub par, also extremely overpriced. Our waitress was not busy, but it seemed like it. As we rarely saw her. I had guest in from out of town. They loved downtown Greenville. They were less than excited about their dining experience as well. Maybe we caught them on a bad day. I would say they were the least enjoyable experience I've had at a downtown establishment.

With a prime downtown location, Cantinflas offers yummy margaritas as large as your dinner plate and has some delicious items on it's menu. Enjoy your meal on the patio and watch people stroll by on the sidewalk.

I have now had two bad experiences at this place, and I won't be going back to try it out for a third time. When I was there most recently, I went with my husband and mother when she was visiting. Our waiter, from the moment he showed up, was extremely inattentive and bordering on rude. He didn't come back to check on us, we couldn't get a straight answer when we asked him a few questions, and the weirdest thing was he kept walking outside of the restaurant and down the street, like he was waiting for a hot date down there, it was really strange. The overpriced margarita was possibly the worst I've ever had, and the food, while it could be worse, is far from outstanding. There are some great places to eat downtown, and there are some much better Mexican places around Greenville. Please don't waste your time and money here until they start caring about their customers.

I went to Cantiflas today to celebrate Cinco De Mayo however I was sorely disappointed by the poor service. Obviously, they are hiring new help as I noticed by the sign in the window but we had three different waiters helping us and no one came to refill our drinks unless we caught someone and asked. The food was not very tasty. I had the Mayan Quesadilla and it was adequate however the beans tasted like they came from a can and the rice was dry. No one came back to ask us if we were finished eating even though we sat with finished plates for 10+ minutes. We had to grab a passing waiter to request our check. I enjoy eating at Mexican restaurants and have been to many here in the Greenville Area. I was very disappointed as I work on Main St. and was hoping that this could be one of the restaurants that I could frequent.

Pros: None to speak of

Cons: Service, Food

I am going to totally disagree with the other reviews. I love this place. I work downtown and eat here often. Apparently it's shocking to people that someone might go to a Mexican restaurant and... GASP, actually want to eat healthy. They have many great items on the menu and most of them are healthier and fresher than what you'd get in a typical Americanized Mexican restaurant. My favorites are the Azteca Chicken Soup, the chicken quesadilla, the black bean soup, the portabella mushroom pizza, the chips, queso dip and the salsa. The salsa is so good, I could eat it with a spoon. The service I've received has always been great. As for the restaurant looking old, well... the building is old!!! What do you expect?

The food is ok, but like it was mentioned in another review, its health oriented and I feel like if I'm going to a mexican restaraunt, I'm not thinking about having health conscience meal. Some of the servers are great, but they seem to have such a high turnover that most of the time there are new servers who are either poorly trained or just plain stupid. I mean, come on, how hard is it to serve burritos? The building itself is old and decrepit, the floors are uneven and the tables wobble. If you sit at the bar to drink and/or eat, it smells like the sewer is backed up in the bar sink or something. During the summer it seems like its hotter inside the restaraunt than outside. I've heard from many employees that the owner is sexist, cheap , greedy and very difficult to work for. Maybe thats why the service isn't so great and the restaraunt looks like caca. Oh yeah, and the drinks are ridiculously over priced and they still use mini bottles so its not like the drinks are something special and original.
I give this restaraunt a "NO BUENO".

Pros: Some of the servers are pleasant, the current management is also good.

Cons: Old and decrepit, smelly, mostly bad service, bad air conditioning, bad owner, average food and drink thats overpriced.

"This is quite possibly the WORST restaurant I have ever been to in my life. And I am quite well-traveled. The service was AWFUL, our orders were wrong, and when we complained to the manager, he insulted us, told us it was the waitstaffs fault, not his, and asked us to leave. I will personally make it my mission to tell everyone in town what a horrible establishment this restaurant is. AND the margaritas taste like gatorade."
