Reviews on Latin food in St. Augustine, Florida, United States. Saint Augustine is a luxurious, romantic vacation spot—you’ll find classic hotels and intimate restaurants. Those can be a dime a dozen, though. What sets Saint Augustine apart is its history—it’s the oldest European settlement in the U.S. And nowhere else in the world can you taste the waters of the Fountain of Youth Archeological Park (where Ponce de Leon may have landed). Who knows, if you vacation here, maybe you won’t need that Botox!

Cozy house-turned-restaurant dispatching upmarket Latin dishes inside or on its patio & terrace.
Casa Maya, Saint Augustine Stopped by Casa Maya for a quick lunch on Tuesday, August 27, 2019. We sat in their courtyard and our waiter showed up to take our order. He didnât say his name but was extremely polite, funny and professional. He made a few suggestions. We ordered: chips and salsa, and shared a pulpo nachos. Everything was amazing!!!! The food was super delicious and fresh. Would we go back?? Oh yes!!!!

Today, we went to Cantina Louies to meet a couple who go there regularly. We do not go to Mexican restaurants these day as often as we did when we were younger. So many traditional eateries now offer Tacos, Nachos, and Quesadillas, Burritos, as well as Fajitas on their menus a long side American standards. Many times at a better price and allows people in your party to wander off and have something different than the group. This being so we were looking for something we could not find anywhere else. The interior was simple, but pleasant, and a little noisy, but that is expected with large groups out for office lunches with a lot of laughs. The server come over quickly and we got our drinks and then took our order. Very pleasant young lady. Surprisingly with the place pretty full we got our order quickly. I love tacos so I ordered the grouper and sriracha shrimp taco. I like spicy. The problem is that the grouper could have been any fish, the Peruvian sauce and jalapeno was so intense that I could not taste the fish which I admit was a pretty large piece. The "sriracha shrimp" which I expected to be hot did not let me down, but was more than a drizzle for sure. The shrimp was deep, deep, plus deep fried, leaving no taste of shrimp. My mouth was on fire after these two tacos, not what I expected, but I have never been to Mexico so that might be the way they do it there. Our server spotted my distress and came over quickly with a full glass of water, "my hero". My wife ordered the "California Burrito " which supposedly was a flour tortilla stuffed with "grilled chicken" lettuce, rice, re-fried beans, sour cream, "guacamole" and topped with "queso dip". The chicken was large strips of "boiled" chicken, no grill marks at all, that were very tough and a butter knife could barely get a cut through. I could see my wife was struggling. There was NO guacamole in her burrito at all. I know all this because my wife did not want any more after she ate a third so we took it home. On examination at home I found the flour tortilla very tough, and queso glued to it and tasteless. I did notice that my friends who go there often empty the insides of there veggie burrito onto the plate and toss aside the tortilla and then ate the insides. The re-fried beans were tasty and there was a lot of them. Although large tough pieces and not grilled at all, there was a lot of chicken even though having no taste at all. All this being so, we were looking for something we could not find anywhere else and we DID. I know many, many people like this place, but my first impression was not so.

My husband and I went to La taza to grab a quick sandwich. The cleanliness is so nice. Happy faces and best chicken salad ever. What turned out to be a quick stop ended up being a very pleasant experience. One of our favorite to go places.

After reading other reviews we stopped by for lunch and were not disappointed! This little restaurant is off US 1 near St Augustine Shores. There is adequate parking (hooray, given parking problems in town). The restaurant was immaculate. The owner waited on us and was so patient and considerate. We had the mixed pupusas (cheese, beans, and chicharron). Wonderful! We had not been able to check out the menu online, but were pleased with the variety offered, including vegetarian. So, if you are interested in a clean, local, reasonably priced, authentic restaurant that has outstanding food and service try Mi Carnal out.

We are a trendy Restaurant serving New Peruvian Cuisine, Beer, Wine and featuring an exotic Mimosa Bar. We Provide a different an exciting dinning experience along with exceptional service. Eat. Drink. Discover!
What a pleasant surprise to find this little restaurant with fabulous food, wine and impeccable service. The wines they have are normally not found in liquor stores. The menu changed two weeks ago And itâs difficult to describe but we had the fish special and the surf and turf which were amazing. Definitely a dining experience. Not for someone that is a plain potato, meat person. Parking on the side of the restaurant. I would recommend you make reservations at is it is a very small restaurant and is quite busy.
