We had a fantastic night at the Destileria while in Cancun. The meal was absolutely delicious; the outside deck had a lovely view and a nice breeze; and the service and ambiance were excellent. I completely recommend this place.

The food is not great or impressive in any way, no distinguishing flavors or preparation. The service was acceptable but unwilling to accommodate a special dish request.

The guac was good, but everything was overprice. We had guac and two margs and it was over $30. We didn't order dinner.
