“check your bill”
Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

We had heard about La Cava Del Tequila mostly through their own marketing efforts and wanted to give it a shot. Our hopes were to have a great go-to tequila/margarita spot during our Epcot visits. The tequila and margarita selections were the best parts of this location. After the waiter showed us several tequilas, I ended up choosing an under $20 sipping anjeo which was also featured as a bolded tequila on the menu. One bartender also mentioned it was a good deal for that price, even saying the actual price. When we aksed for the bill, our bartender initially rang up the order correctly (you can see the pay terminal clearly as you stand at the bar). I noticed that another bartender that informed us of the different brands motioned to the other that was ringing it up and he made some changes at the terminal. When the bill came, I was presented with a bill including a now alkost $40 tequila. After indicating the error and a brief discussion, they agreed to charge the original price and i handed over my credit card and signed the bill. The next day, i now have 3 charges, including the incorrect price (which i had not even presented my card at that point) and the correct charge twice. This business practice is extremely shady and hope they are not getting over on tourists that may not give a second look while on vacation. I would also like to note that during the process of trying to correct the issue we found out this is not a Disney owned company. We will not return to this location.

“Excellent selection”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Liked selection
Friendly service
Wished they would not assume you want the tequila as a shot; prefer to sip mine. Ordered it neat, but was provided lime, salt and tomato juice as a set up.
Good place to try something new.

“Orlando's only authentic tequila ambassadors”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Love, love, love. As a couple without kids who appreciate places that cater to people like us, we adore La Cava and all the intensely knowledgeable servers, and we stop in every chance we get -- about 4-5 times a month. The guacamole and other appetizers are excellent, and the Mexican beer selection is great, but the tequila is the star. We've learned so much about what makes a good tequila, and why the most authentic of tequilas stand apart. This place is quaint and the service is very personal. We've fallen in love with better tequilas than anything an American restaurant would ordinarily sell, and have rushed to our local Total Wine to buy these amazing premium tequilas. Viva La Cava!

“Fun place! Lovely cocktails!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Really nice place for an adult escape. We went for pre-dinner drinks on our date night. Big selection of cocktails and ours are delicious. Fun atmosphere and good attentive service without being over the top.
We also had the nachos as an appetiser and the salsa was fresh and very tasty, really nice!

“Margaritas in plastic tumblers?”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I am not sure what is up with this Tequila Bar. We were here in February, and enjoyed their Margaritas in real margarita glasses. This time we received the Margaritas in plastic tumbler glasses. Service was lousy. The waiter acted annoyed that we were there. I had the blood orange Margarita that tasted like cough medicine. When a drink costs $13, please serve it in the correct glass.

How could something so right go so wrong eight's months time.
