“Enjoyable meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Good food, great service and reasonably priced. Had a very nice dinner on the deck overlooking the inlet. A mariachi band moved around the restaurant and provided nice entertainment. I would recommend the tequila cheese appetizer. Talk to your bellman before you leave, ours gave us a coupon for 2 free drinks.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

While most restaurants in Cancun's "Zona Turista" are sub par when it comes to good fit, La Destilleria delivered. We could have done without the mariachi band around our table but loved the food.

“Definitely Go Here!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

La Distileria is our favorite restaurant in Cancun. Every time we are in Cancun we make it a point to come here. The food is delicious and authentic, the atmosphere cannot be beat and the tequilla is awesome! Make sure you ask for Gummer (Goomer). He was our waiter and so very good, he gave us great service. He had us laughing and he even did magic tricks at the table. We had Tequilla Shrimp, that was prepared tableside and beef tenderloin. Magnifico!! The decor is very nice, after some remodeling and there is paintings on the walls and ceilings, very colorful. It is on the lagoon with magnificent views. Definitely a place to enjoy yourself!

“Great food, drinks, service and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Might be a bit touristy, but it was the best spot we hit all week. Ate outside and the sunset was great. Had two young children with us, and the service was awesomely accommodating. The drinks were perfect, mojitos and marguaritas! Shrimp skewers were good, as was the sophas. The best meal of the night was the mixed molcajete, nicely spiced beef and chicken, it was delicious. Only complaint, and it is a small one, is that it does get a little cramped with the marriachi band out on the deck
