La CabaA+/-a is proud to say it has been in business since 1963. What was once the National Plumbing and heating Co. and then a small thrift shop was remodeled into a thatched roof hut or cabaA+/-a which marked the beginning of the restaurants history, Soon after opening, the restaurant began making hand made tortillas on the premises. In fact, we were the first Mexican restaurant on the Westside to offer hand-made tortillas with its dishes. We were also one of the first to serve authentic Mexican platillos and continue with this tradition. Our Carnitas for example, are prepared in the style found in Michoacan, Mexico while other dishes like our Carne Adobada, are prepared from recipes found in Jalisco Mexico.
I loved it! Great drinks and the food was wonderful. Since I'm from Texas I love my TexMex and this is as close as I can get to good TexMex in CA when we visit LA. I will be back. We had to wait 45 minutes but we did have a party of 8. Well worth the wait. We had a blast.
The food is always good. I've been to this restaurant many times and the service has been unwavering. There are even live guitarists on certain nights. They stay open until 3 a.m. It doesn't get any better than that. If you love good Mexican food, La Cabana is the place for you!!!
Been there a few times now and the story is always the same... The food is mostly unremarkable, but I expect that from a Mexican restaraunt. The waiters and hosts/managers there are largely bitter and behave as though you are bothering them with your presence. Two out of my four visits have started in the worst table in the house, followed by an forced request for a less drafty, lower traffic location. Each time my request was greeted with sighs and shared looks of contempt. I'm a generous tipper and a low maintence customer. I also won't be back. The prices aren't low enough and the food isn't good enough to put up with such treatment. Darn shame too, being a local spot I tried to add to my rotation.
La Cabana (738 Rose Ave., Venice - near corner of Lincoln Blvd.) is a moderately sized neighborhood gem that has something for everyone. La Cabana is a family owned business well-known to Santa Monica/Venice locals; it's a great place to take the kids, friends, date (although very romantic, the mariachi group that circle the restaurant could be awkward on a first date) or head to in the wee hours after a night out on the town. La Cabana is open until 3am every night!
The food is wonderful, margarita's strong and the price is beyond reasonable... you may even feel you didn't pay enough! La Cabana features indoor and outdoor seating and the ambience is wonderful. Everything is hot, well prepared, brought quickly and the service is top notch! They have the best guacamole and flan in town, the salsa is fantastic and you can't go wrong with the Chef Specialties. Don't miss their homemade tortillas made right there in the middle of the restaurant. Friday and Saturday nights are very busy, but are worth the wait.
