“Favorite bar in Disney!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Let me start of by saying that it is rare for me to have a Disney trip WITHOUT La Cava del Tequila! It is my favorite bar on Disney property, and I think the margaritas are worth every penny. I really enjoy the blood orange and pomegranate margaritas, and my boyfriend (who doesn't care for tequila) gets the avocado one every time. The cucumber margarita is also really different and refreshing.

The atmosphere is great... the perfect place to cool down in the middle of summer, since it's inside, very dark and has A/C. The bar can get very crowded, but if you don't mind waiting, do so.

My one tiny complaint about this bar is the lack of food. I know when they first opened and up until a few years ago, they offered different food options. Now, it seems to be limited to just chips with queso, salsa or guac. I'd like to see more food options on the menu, even if they are simple bar, snacking options.

“I'd go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

I love it for the chips and dip. Boyfriend loves it for the tequila flight! Like others have mentioned, it can get very busy, but we've always been able to snag a table (knock on wood!). The interior is small but beautifully decorated. Service has never been overly friendly, but no one has ever been rude. It's a great place to relax and people watch. The queso and guac are EXCELLENT. The salsa is unique and has a smoky flavor to it. I wasn't too crazy about it, simply because it's not a flavor I enjoy, but the boyfriend raves about it. The prices were a little shocking, but nothing out of place in Disney.

“LOVE this place - a must visit at EPCOT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

I have been fortunate enough to have made 3 visits to this spot in the past 13 months and look forward to it on every Disney trip. Excellent service and delicious margaritas inside the Mexico pyramid. Whether I am sitting in the interior of the bar or walking around browsing the souvenirs, this is always one of my favorite ways to end my day at EPCOT. Do not miss this place for drinks, appetizers, or a pre San Angel Inn cocktail!!!!

“A Must for Anyone Who Enjoys a Drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Even though I live across the country in California, I am a devotee and fan of La Cava Del Tequila, an awesome margarita and tequila (+ mezcal) bar inside the Mexico Pavilion at the Walt Disney World Epcot World Showcase.

There is a wide selection of Margaritas... I don't think I've tried them all, yet, but the many I have had were all spectacular. Also they offer a good selection of Tequilas, along with a few tasting flights. Again, another must do. Even if you are on the fence about tequila, I think the experience warrants a try!

The service has always been friendly. During the food and wine festival things can get a bit hectic. But on regular days, the bartenders are extra friendly and willing to answer any questions or share margarita-making secrets with you.

My brother is a big tequila fan and frequents places that specialize in tastings... he was impressed with the selection and gave his tequila-informed stamp of approval, too.

Mmmmm. One last hint... grab a margarita to enjoy while watching Illuminations.

“The best.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We NEVER miss this place. We have been going since its inception and every single visit- this is no joke- Francisco and Juan always remember what I want. That's pretty darn impressive to me, as a former bartender, that I can visit only 2 to 3 times a year and he knows me and is making my drinks when I walk up to the bar. He remembers my last visit date every time so it isn't a "guessing game" where he is concerned.
The only downside to this place is that it is now very popular- you used to be able to walk in and go up to the bar and have guac and chips with a drink and a quick chat. Now, there is a queue to get in most times, and it has lost its charm and friendliness. It isn't going to stop me from going because hands-down, they have the best service and the best drinks and there is no way I could ever go to Disney and not stop in there to have a cucumber margarita and the hubby have a jalapeno margarita but I do miss my chats with Francisco and the non-hurried appeal it used to have for me. Still give it a 5 though.
