One of the best Steak's in town I went there with my group. The best steak's we ever had. The quality of food is superb and the price range is not high. Their service is very great and fast.
They took only 25 minutes to bring the order on our table. Staff is very kind, nice and helpful.
The environment is very comfortable!! Thanks to Linda's that made our day!! You should also visit there.
I was introduced to Linda's La Cantina through a business associate many years ago. The steak is undoubtedly the best I have ever had. I live in NC and have actually gotten up very early on a Saturday morning and driven to Orlando, just to have dinner at La Cantina...it really is that good. I have recommended La Cantina to many of my friends, and they agree. Try it, you won't be sorry.

Wow! How unfortunate. This place had a good reputation for decades. It's actually hard to believe they're still in business. It's hands-down the worst dining experience I've had in years. The food was undercooked, but tasted charred or burned as if the grill wasn't clean. Going with extended family, we were able to share the meals and try out other dishes. It was a toss-up as to who got the worst meal. The steaks were bad, the seafood was bad, everyone was groaning with disappointment. Simply not worth eating. Forget the price tags, you wouln't make food this poorly in your own home. Sorry, but I can't think of anything positive about this place.

This ""steak house"" falls short.
Food is fair. Dinner consists of a steak and a potato with a little salad. Every thing else is optional. Good service is also optional.
Steaks are over seasoned and over grilled.
They got the restaurant name right. It is a ""LA CANTINA"" and not a ""Steak House"". The atmosphere is dark and damp. The place has a stale moldy aroma. Family atmosphere it is NOT.
My wife commented she could not wait to get home to shower!
The regulars comment on ""it is the best"". They may want to experience something else.
I would NOT recommend Linda's La Cantina.

My wife's parents loved to eat here, and though I've never been overly impressed with the food for the the prices (steaks often over or undercooked), and a very hit and miss wait staff (often found waitresses to be somewhat rude and even once had a young lady who reiked of marijauna and was clearly under the influence of it to my wife and I), the amazing ambiance always kept me from objecting when it came time for one of our family meetups.
In the last year however I have met two separate individuals, with no link to one another, who have both been involved with the family for different reasons. For two people who don't know each other at all their stories of the family and what they know of the restaurant are apallingly similar, too much so to be coincidence.
The family is allegedly made up of pill popping coke users, the daughters work as waitresses and show up for work under the influence of drugs with the parents/owners knowledge (which goes along with our experience, though I must admit that was only one time of many and I don't know which waitresses are the daughters), a my one friend even made mention of one of the daughters throwing a plate at someone while under the influence. The worst is yet to come, both of my aquaintances (again not linked at all) both say they know of occasions where food was spit in or intentionally poorly or incorrectly cooked for unliked customers.
I've gotten similar enough stories to convince me to not go back. They paint the picture of a white trash family who would have amounted to nothing had they not lucked out in inheriting this business and I'd no longer like to support it.

Looked forward to our visit with friends and the food that I remembered. Everything was mediocre for such high prices. The shirmp cocktail was small and unappealing. House salad was not much. My steak was gristle---of course---no one from the restaurant would admit that. And, my steak was cool---not temp. hot even though I ordered ""medium"".
Our waiter was unattentive and we had to track him down for everything---bread, tea, everything. He NEVER attended to our needs and he got the beverage orders wrong. 2 teas--2 waters---how hard was that?
I was SO disappointed as we spent $110 plus $20 tip for a party of 4. Again, the shrimp cocktail was small and not much and our steaks were OK--except for mine.
We won't go back at those prices and quality.
I think this is the one and only steak house that I know of (seeing as I grew up in the Orlando area) that is great for a birthday party young and old with excellent steak, just a nicesit down dinner with excellent steak and/or a romantic dinner with excellent steak. Did I happen to mention the excellent steak?!?!? Othere then that, I don't think I have been to any restaurant in Orlando that I went to when I was 5 and then again when I was 30 and half of the staff is still there and just as friendly now as they were when I was 5. Yes, I have been going to Linda's since I was about 5. My entire family (Grandfather, grandmother, 4 uncles, my mother, and about 4 friends of the family with their family members) and I have been going there every year at least 2xs a year if not more. There are not the perfect and complete words to explain how much my family and my self love Linda's LaCantina. I think that everyone should try it at least once!
Thank you to the family and the staff at Linda's
