This Mexican restaurant has one of the best service I experienced in London, both waiters who attended our table were incredibly nice and polite, and the food was really excellent. I recommend the guacamole, very fresh, cooked right in front of you, something totally different from what you buy in supermarkets, and the large portion of delicious pork ribs! Recommended... More

This is the worst restaurant experience I’ve had in London for ages. The service, though friendly, was terrible – I had to get up from my seat FIVE times to find a member of staff to ask for tap water, and then to chase our drinks, and then to ask for cutlery, and then chase our dessert and then to...

Fresh guac, tacos and drinks were really good but overpriced (£40 for three things). Great service/ friendly waiters - better to book in advance.

Having visited Laredo when it first opened and leaving underwhelmed, I can confidently say nothing has changed. The novelty of table-side guacamole preparation has worn off (it's available at other eateries) and actually we had to wait c.20 minutes for this; with staff apologising to us, for the delay. All dishes were uninspiring and lacked any sort of depth; flavours... More

We chose the brunch option with bottomless Margaritas and it was excellent. Great food and you can try every flavour margarita. Our waiter, Luca, was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we made a point of telling the manager how impressed we were with him. Will definitely be going again.

The service we received by our waitress Sonia was phenomenal! She was so lovely and made sure our visit was the best it could be. The atmosphere of the restaurant was also very nice. We ordered tortilla chips with guacamole which was freshly made right it front of us, which was a lovely surprise and it tasted wonderful. The main... More

Went with my family and stopped by on a whim. "Gourmet mexican" on the windows seemed tempting, but it was not very gourmet. Nice that they made the guacamole on the table (but too much white pepper which has a very distinct taste). The fajitas were not gourmet, as the meat was chewy and it wasn't partuculary tasty. The enchiladas... More

We've just been to Cantina Laredo, the food was ok, not as nice as I was expecting. The Churros for dessert were the best part. Service was overly attentive, to the point of annoying. Taking plates away when the other person hasn't finished eating and not replacing used cutlery. Also leaning over the table with hot food and drinks. Also... More

Have always loved the service and food here. The fresh guacamole and fajitas are a fav. The bartender is superb, my all time fav is the classic margarita. The sizzling brownie with agave butter is a must eat.
