Guacamole was SOOO good!

We came here for dinner based on recommendation for concierge at hotel. Took the bus and dropped us off right across the street by the fire department. We were seated right away even though we arrived 15min before our reservation. We sat outside on the patio and it's right on top of the lagoon so... read more

We had the tequila fried cheese as an appetizer as well as the pepper cream soup. For main courses we had the skewers (great), Chili Rellanos (okay), breaded/fried chicken breast with cheese (good) and chicken with pepper cream sauce (more mushroom and didn't find much chicken for some reason - so okay). Enjoyed some top shelf tequila after dinner!

Had a wonderful dinner here. We sat out on the terrace and had a great view for the sunset. The waiters were excellent. Very friendly and accommodating. The food was very good. The portions were on the large size so go with an appetite. Drinks are good and did I mention that the waiters were excellent.

We recently had dinner at LaDistileria for the first time. We had a reservation and had a nice table on the porch overlooking the water. We had a great sunset view. The waiters were great as was the food. The meals were reasonably priced. During our dinner a mariachi group went around the restaurant and played. They put on a... More

Have been here several times over the past few years of vacationing in Cancun. Food is really good but the entertainment is even better. For food, you have your typical Eastern Mexico lineup but worthy of mention is their flambe dishes that are prepared table side. Very family friendly vibe and great location to take your kids. Not to be... More

Great space for authentic Mexican food. You will feel like a million bucks after eating at this place. The guacamole was off the charts, the mole meal was absolutely delicious and the service was EXCELLENT!

Very authentic Mexican food restaurant in the Zona Hotelera of Cancun. The waiters all seemed to be in a hurry to get us out of the restaurant and with very little follow up with the customers for additional needs,

This place is perfect for a large group. It's clean and nice with a great view of the water and a lovely patio. Really reminded me of a Spaghetti Factory since they have a theme (tequila distillery) and they stick with the theme throughout. The service is solid - we went twice, once to check it out to see if... More
