We actually visited for lunch and dinner since at lunch we had an awesome margarita. Unfortunately, the same bartender was not on at dinner as lunch... read more

What a great place for authentic Mexican food. We went there 3 times during our 2 week stay. Great ambience, service and food. The molcajetes are superb. Had the shrimp, chicken, and shrimp again. Definitely the highlight of our dinners in Cancun. At dinner time they actually have a strolling mariachi band that will play at your table. The only... More

Outside dining, great food, great waiters, and live music. It's a nice happy place to eat! You can have your picture taken with a sombrero and your margarita or watch a magic trick be performed.

After our first full day in Cancun, we chose to eat at La Destileria...the restaurant was so authentic inside, the service was impeccable, and the food...several of our party chose to get the molcajetes-muy delicioso! I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want genuine mexican food!

We enjoyed La Destilleria twice during our trip to Cancun. Each time the food, ambience and service were excellent ! Its close to all major hotels and beautifully nestled atop a small little hill overlooking a small river ! highly recommended !!

We enjoyed a nice family dinner in the porch and watched the sun go down over the lagoon. The servers were very attentive and helpful. There were also a few roaming groups of musicians playing traditional Mexican songs which was very fun and festive. It was a cool decor because of the tequila distillery but unfortunately we did not sample... More

Try a real Mexican treat. The arrachera molcajete is a spicy steak dish cooked in a volcanic rock plate, drenched in hot sauce, with onions, nopal (cactus) and spicy sausage. Absolutely delicious.
