We first visited 2 years ago - when we returned this year, it was the same great service and great desserts we remembered. I'm glad to see the consistency in their business. This year I had the chicken with the mole sauce and it was fantastic.

We always finish our stay in Cancun with a visit to this restaurant just 10 minutes walk from Laguna mar. Mention the Westin for a free drink and appetizer.

Ate at La Destileria last night and it was delicious! It's right on the water so the view is amazing. A Mariachi band serenaded us. The drinks, table side guac, and all of our meals were AWESOME! The "Mad Spicy Salmon" was sooo good and soo spicy! I couldn't stop eating it even though my mouth was on fire. Great... More

We went in for late lunch about 2:00. Only three other tables were seated. Food was very good. Had black bean soup and tequila shrimp. My husband had a great steak. Service was awesome. We'll definitely be back.

From the bean based salsa and chips, to the Tequila cheese everything was delicious. We highly recommend the Destilería Soup, or the Tortilla soup. This was a great place for a light lunch, and next time in Cancun we plan to come here for dinner. Great menu of Tequilas also.

We had a great dinner here. 3 of us got different versions of the Molcajetes and we all enjoyed them. The housemade flour tortillas were excellent. We also tried two different flights of tequila. Our "guide" was so knowledgeable, and really gave us a great explanation of tequila in general, as well as the specifics of the tequilas we were... More

We enjoy dining at La Destileria when we are in Cancun. We go early (6-6:30p) so that we can sit outside and watch the sun set. The beef dishes here are quite good as are the margaritas and the dessert crepes. We enjoy the mariachis and the group that plays here is very good! The wait staff here is also... More

This restaurant never disappoints. Friends we come to Cancun with are tequila lovers - La Distilleria serves great margaritas and shots of all different kinds of tequila. The food is very rich - over-ordering is easy. Yes, the mariachis wander through - it is festive and fun. I ordered the chili rellenos - fab! Tres Leches cake good too

Visited here when staying at The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort and Spa - you get discount at this restaurant if you're staying there. The place was large and staff friendly. It had beautiful views and the food very tasty - would recommend and visit again.
