Best Mexican Meal Ever

Visited on advice of Westin resort - was the best Mexican meal ever - and we are Mexican food aficionados! Was well worth the visit. The special for the evening was lobster, shrimp, steak, cactus, rice, vegetables and tortillas for two. Simply the best meal - exactly what we were looking for and... read more

enjoyed sitting outside on the deck next to the water. Ordered steak which was okay. The Tortilla soup and presentation was excellent! Great desserts and drinks choices.

La Destileria was recommended by our hotel and was easily accessible via the local bus. Both the food and service were very good. I recommend the guacamole appetizer made tableside, and a local beef entrée that came in a bowl. We ate on the patio overlooking the ocean which was very romantic especially with the roving mariachi band. I would... More

Our group of 6 went here for a Tequila tasting at the bar and had a great time! Did not eat here so I can't speak to the food. The bartender had limited English skills and we had basic Spanish skills but we worked it out - learned a lot about the differences in Tequila. The bar tender treated us... More

They still tried to sell you stuff but were not overly pushy. The food was really great and the atmosphere as well. I would eat here again.

The food was very good, but you do pay for the "real" Mexican expierance. They had people walking around singing at your table, which was nice once, but it keep happening the whole time we were there. Take lots of small bills to pay every time they come around. It was also very loud if you wanted to have a... More

This is a fun place to go and the food is good. Great drinks and a really fun mariachi band. Saw lots of kids here. There is a separate bar if you want to sample some of their tequilas.

We had lunch there as a recommendation from our hotel staff. We sat outside overlooking the lagoon while our waiter served us great margaritas! The food was fantastic! Pick one of the specials served in a hot stone pot as the flavors were incredible! Great food, service and price!
