Cargo Cantina

Unit 15, Cargo 2, Wapping Wharf, Bristol, BS1 6ZA
Cargo Cantina bar


Cargo Cantina has re-opened, subject to Government restrictions. Please check directly on their website and/or social media channels for the latest updates.​​​​​​

CARGO Cantina is inspired by the authentic Cantinas of Mexico, traditionally forbidden to women, children and men in police or military uniform, where hombres used to drink around the bar and have some botanas (bar snacks).

The menu is complemented with tacos- an amazing street food the owners and staff enjoyed so much on their travels. Their take is fresh and made with carefully sources ingredients using free range and organic meat, homemade salsa’s and no GM tortilla’s.

And in true Bristol fashion, everyone is welcome. 

Located in the Wapping Warf, the restaurant offers al fresco dining and casual walk-in seating, suitable for people passing by for a quick snack or for groups wanting to spend several hours catching up over some margaritas and tacos. As you step through the door at Cantina you are greeted by the smell of fresh spices, the shaking of ice in the cocktail shaker and of course the biggest welcome from staff. 

Keeping with the true roots of Cantinas, you don’t need to make a reservation, just pop in they’ll we’ll make space for you, and in the meantime, there is no harm in having a beer from a frozen glass in the bustling atmosphere whilst you wait. 

If you can’t decide what to have to eat, why not try the Tacos Todos, a tasting experience of all the tacos, salsas and sides; a perfect sharing meal. The tricky bit is then deciding frozen margarita, straight up mezcal or maybe a homemade soda?

    Came for a Saturday lunch but the service was disappointing. The server (blond curly hair) was all over the place. Raised her voice on the other two girls as well. Read full review
