We had our last meal in Cancùn in that restaurant with my family! The food was correct, the wine good and they had an enormous choice of tequilas that they serve the right way (with tomato juice or sparkling water depending on the tequila)! The waiters were funny and it wasn't too expensive! Great with friends, family or with your... More

Really liked this place for lots of reasons: the atmosphere, the receptiveness of the waiters, the menu ( I'm veggie and they had great alternatives), the serenades, the food the drinks but mostly the value on top of all that! Not expensive at all. We will def go back.

The food was amazing, prices were fair and the mariachi band was fun. Will definitely go back before we leave for the states. The Chiquihuite on poblana sauce was to die for!

When we're away in a place like Cancun, I personally have a hard time spending money at these fancy places where all the tourist go. I like to support the lesser known places and mingle with the locals. We decided that one night, we would splurge. We choose this restaurant after sticking our head in a few nights earlier to...

We took a tequila tour for the first time. We really enjoyed the tour as our guide, Euelio Garcia, explained how tequila is made and the history behind it. He was very knowledgeable. He gave us tequila tastings and we had an appetizer each. That was one of the best appetizers I've had in Cancun. We are definitely going back... More

We had visited La Destileria back in 2008 and remember it fondly, we were glad to see it's still going strong. The menu has changed a bit but it still offers tasty options, husband ordered the Jamaica fish and said it was the best main he has had all week. Waiters are friendly and entertaining and prices are very reasonable... More

We had a very nice meal on the outside veranda with a lovely view of the sunset. The food was good, staff were attentive and the drinks were flowing. There is a great atmosphere to the venue. Thoroughly enjoyed the flambé steak. We will be going back again.

Went there for pure prenuptial dinner. Nice representation of tequilas. Good presentation of food. Large dinners. The mogahete was awesome. The staff have us a "private " tequila production tour. There was a mariachi band that migrated throughout the restaurant too.

This was one of the best Mexican restaurants I've ever eaten at. Knowledgeable and friendly waiters, good portion size, excellent taste and reasonably priced. Located on the water and attached to a tequila shop. Musicians strolled throughout the restaurant, adding a nice touch. Reservations recommended if you go later in the evening.
