Food was interesting for sure. It's all about the tequila at his place with a large menu of different tequila to try.

we had a good meal and good service. only complaint is that they would not let us sit outside since we didn't have reservations (and there were tables open the entire time we were there). good traditional Mexican food. we'd go back!

A nice restaurant in Cancun with a rather extensive menu. The specials marked on the menu were particularly good, quite a bit more so than the other items we tried. Don't go out of your way to eat here, but if you are in the vicinity it is worth a visit. Stick to the specialities and you should leave happy... More

Our best memories of La Destileria are the days (pre-Hurricane Wilma) when there was a dark, candle-lit alcove where we could sample tequila and immerse ourselves into the lovely atmosphere of the place. That area has been converted into more tables and chairs (which we have never seen full). Miss those days. These days? Still OK atmosphere (strolling Mariachi guys... More

We went back several times during our recent trip. Every meal was great! The interior seating area was a bit cold...the patio seating area was very comfortable with a nice view of the back bay and small marina located directly behind the restaurant.

We have been visiting Cancun for close to 20 years and bringing guests to La Destileria since they opened in the Zona Hotelera. The highlight was always the tequila tour. It originally cost $5US and (understandably) went up to $8. This time we brought first time guests for the tour and we were informed that the new management had raised... More

I took a group of 10 people here and I have to say it was our best night out. The food and service were great! They had a traditional Mexican group playing at the table and they were awesome. I would come back in a heart beat. Oh ya don't forget to order dessert, it was the best dessert I... More

Sat on the deck overlooking the lagoon which seemed to enhance the great flavors of the food. The service was great and we will eat there again on a return trip. It was highly recommended to us and we loved it.

We went to this restaurant that sits on the lagoon to have a margarita and dinner. It was so good we went back again the next night. It's so romantic at sunset. My husband had the beef tacos that were so fresh and the hot green tomatillo salsa was a great addition. I had the steamed sea bass that comes... More
