Review - Cantina Bar and Grill *UPDATED*



Walking along Oxford Street with a powerful thirst, I was tempted back here by an another easy-drinking jug of Margaritas Espana ($35/carafe). The delightful citrus-vanilla flavour comes courtesy of Licor 43 and complements a well-presented Scallop and Prawn Stuffed Piquillo Pepper ($5/piece) rather nicely.

I recall from a previous visit (HERE) that the Jamon Bread ($5) – grilled, garlic-rubbed Sonoma sourdough topped with rocket and jamon - is also a great drinking companion.



The regularly changing specials board produces a generous bowl of nicely cooked Steamed Mussels ($12) with tomato, white wine, saffron and coriander; it could only be improved by a little bread to enjoy the briny liquid.



An interesting Chickpea Salad ($14) with grilled peppers, Manchego, cucumber, mint and onion proves to be a compelling and plentiful foil to the Char Grilled Angus Beef ($20) served with a green Chimichurri sauce.



Keep an eye out for the seasonal Padrón peppers, served up last season with Hummus, Spiced Ground Lamb and Olive Sourdough ($12). Walk-up diners are welcomed in, though often to stool-style seating. After a few selections from their cocktail and wine list (which includes offerings from Argentina, Chile and Spain) you probably won’t care where you’re sitting.
