This fits in the intermediate budget category, but service was great, loved the menu choices. The food was fantastic. Nice view of the lagoon. Well worth it.

“NICE SPOT”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We were in Cancun the last week of May, and tryed different places. La Destilleria was very nice. Across from one of the malls and on the lagoon. Very "rustic woody" atmosphere. The staff was very nice and so was the food. We will be returning to La Distilleria on our next Cancun visit.

“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.
