Nice surprise

What a pleasant surprise this was. Both red snapper with a nice cilantro sauce and steak with an avocado sauce were very good. We love the frozen margaritas, especially the peach flavored. Overall a winner.

One of the best Mexican Restaurants in Cancun. Excellent Guacamole, prepared right in front of you very tasty and unique. The drinks are huge, so keep it in mind, and the Arrachera meat is cook to perfection with a sample of fried beans and tortillas.

Excellente! I was afraid this would be a little cheesy, but we had a great time. We missed the tour by just a little bit, but Fernando (and Walter) took great care of us. We did a tequila tasting, and then stayed for dinner, and then we bought tequilas (and sampled more) in their store. Their prices were great when... More

The guacamole is the best in town and is also the best price! Don't even think about going somewhere else to get tableside guacamole! It cost $78 pesos I believe. The other food and service are also very good

Came here 3 times in a week. Do not eat at La Isla, keep walking and eat here. Great service. Great food and drinks. Awesome view. Clean. Everyone in our family loved it. I asked where I could get great Mexican food at our hotel and two people told me to go here. So happy they did. It saved our... More

The food was amazing and portions were very solid. I love the atmosphere and the quality of food, drink and service I would have been willing to pay 25% premium. The competitor down the street from them was impressive on-line, but when we stopped there first to look at the menu, the tables were fine linens and the pricing was... More

Heading to our hotel's Mexican buffet we ran into a fellow hotel guest who recommended La Destileria instead. The hotel was charging $40 per person for our family so we walked over to this restaurant and we are very glad we did. We tried several different entrees, had several drinks and were out for less than $100 with tip. The... More

Had a dinner and drinks at this great traditional restaurant. We had the tacos and their grilled cheese which is amazing. Flan is the best we had in Cancun!

We decided to try it without researching it and it was a wonderful surprise. The décor inside is adorable. The staff was very friendly and engaging. The food was fantastic. I had the Molcajete with shrimp, rice, beans, nopales, and chorizo. The best chorizo I've ever tasted. Another plus -the tequila shots came double the normal size in the US.... More
