We had a wonderful table with full view of the bay at sunset. Although it was not the time of year to enjoy any crocodiles swimming nearby we still enjoyed the setting sun. The restaurant was not crowded as we arrived for an early dinner. Consequently, we had relatively quick and attentive service which we had not experienced elsewhere. The... More

The drinks were great. We got Margarita Love which was worth the price! The guacamole is made at your table. The tres lèches was amazing. The gift shop... More

My family visited for lunch on this trip without me, but insisted we head back for dinner our last night in Cancun. I have been here for lunch before and recommended this to many people while in Cancun. We have never been disappointed and the desserts are to die for

La Destileria is the third of our favorite dining destinations when visiting Cancun. Most often we have dined inside however last year we were fortunate to be able to sit outside and it was beautiful. My wife still speaks of how great the table side prepared guacamole was and as always the roving musicians were the best! They are very... More

We ventured to La Destileria upon the recommendation of our concierge and for my birthday and had a terrific time. The staff provided us small welcome margaritas (for special occasion) upon our arrival and they were delicious (and then we had to have a few more large ones of course). The outside dining on the lagoon was relaxing, beautiful and... More

This is a great spot for a authentic, higher quality Mexican dinner. We sat outside, by the waterfront, where the tables were comfortably spaced, a Mariachi band strolled through the area, and we were able to enjoy a great dinner and conversation. Everything was delicious.

Very good Mexican food, with fantastic view of the bay. If you go in the evening you can see the fantastic sunset sitting in the terrace. However we visited for lunch time and it was great by ourself very peaceful and we had great time. Price very reasonable. Ask the waiter to point out where the crocodile is.

Thank Pbacco
