CANTINA WEST

The legendary Cantina West has been renewed!

The Cantina West restaurant is a Mexican-style restaurant located on Kasarminkatu in the centre of Helsinki. We are Finland’s first Tex-Mex saloon and a pioneer in Tex-Mex cuisine, offering our customers fiery and atmospheric experiences since 1990. We have always had a great deal of respect for our customers’ opinions and wishes, which is why we decided to roll up our sleeves and make Cantina West an even more enjoyable and attractive meeting spot.

When you enter the renewed Cantina West, you are greeted with a warm and happy atmosphere. The new foods are fresh, freshly made, rich in taste and hand-crafted. Additionally, social dining has been given special attention as per our customers’ wishes. Cantina West has the largest selection of tequilas and the best strawberry margaritas in Finland. Our selection covers over 40 different tequilas. Our knowledgeable personnel will be glad to help you make a selection. On weekends, our customers’ spirits are lifted by the lively and energetic slammer girls, and we have a troubadour to introduce us to the wonders of Mexican music every Friday.

HISTORY

The Cantina West restaurant was opened on 10 October 1990 as the first Tex-Mex restaurant in Finland. 

Cantina’s predecessor, Gourmet Capitol, was located in the Handelsgillet premises on Kasarminkatu 23.  The Capitol restaurant was in decline by 1990, so something had to be done. Magnus “Manne” Lundström, the owner at that time, travelled to the West Coast of America with his acquaintance Sakke Järvenpää to look for a new restaurant business idea.
