“Ariba!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

It has been several years since I've been to La Destileria, but it was the best Mexican Food anywhere - anytime! Great food, great atmosphere, great service. If you are in Cancun this is like a getting in the ocean. A No Brainer!

“Expensive”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The atmosphere, food, and services are excellent, but is overpriced. They take advantage of tourists and I do not like it.

I will never go back to La Destileria.

“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.
