About Us

The Concept

ARRIBA Cantina brings you the spirit, flavors, and cuisine originating from the Pacific Coast of Mexico in combination with the freshest ingredients, meats, and seafood from the Pacific Northwest. We continue to build a network of food sources with an eye on a commitment to sustainable practices and to procure ingredients of the highest quality. Our menu will not be static, so look forward to variations as the seasons change and ingredients become available.

ARRIBA Cantina's effusive energy is driven by our highly trained and dedicated staff. We look forward to providing you, your friends, and your family with a thoroughly enjoyable Mexican cantina experience. We invite you to visit and allow us to create a flavor-filled meal inspired by our favorite regions in the world!

The Story

Our friendship began at the bar - Kirk Henry behind and Ryan Suddendorf watching him masterfully take care of every guest. Somehow 6 years came and went with Ryan opening multiple restaurant locations around the greater Seattle area. All the while, Ryan and Kirk's friendship continued to grow with conversations centered around their passion for hospitality, restaurants, drinks, their beloved Huskies, and Mexican food. It was when they found themselves both in Puerto Vallarta, together with their families, that they immersed themselves in the extraordinary food and tequila of the region. The seed was planted to explore an entrepreneurial partnership working together to open a restaurant emulating these culinary experiences. Ryan and Kirk recognized this niche was missing from Northeast Seattle and began to devise a plan to offer authentic Pacific Coast Mexican cuisine in a neighborhood gathering place where regulars are remembered and first timers are treated like regulars. ARRIBA Cantina is the culmination of their vision!
