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.

Great food with authentic flavor. Great service and be sure to sample tequilas in tasting room. Drinks were amazing and right on the water. Best molcajet that I've ever had. They flavor was amazing. A must go to restaurant in Cancun that isn't a chain from US.

Really great fajitas, tacos and desserts. Ask to sit out on the balcony/deck. They make the guacamole in front of you. There is a Mexican duo that comes around to play songs on request too

I am writing this because I was looking at Yelp and Trip Advisor to find a restaurant near the hotel zone in Cancun. Me, my husband and our friends (in our 50s and 60s) had a sunset dinner here. It was great. Sure, it was 'touristy', but I really wonder what people dining in the HOTEL zone of Cancun are... More

La Destileria is one of the restaurants on the lagoon side of the boulevard and has a lovely view. The food was good for the price, quite reasonable. The service was good too. We had a window table which made it very pleasant. This area of the boulevard is out of the area where they have water sports, so it... More

Had a wonderful lunch at La Destillera. We had the sea food tacos and they were awwwesome! The waiter asked us whether we wanted a business or vacation size Margarita. We took the business size because it was still early in the day 😄🍸well...two generous ounces of Tequilla and one of Grand Manier, a little lime juice and we were... More

Visited this Resturant on recommendation from our host where we were staying. I truly believe it was the best meal I had during my stay in Cancun. Great service and an excellent value. We sat on the outside deck for lunch and it was gorgeous!

We requested a table outside and it was beautiful, lots of actions as several mariachi groups came through during our time there. Tried Herradura Ultra Tequila, pretty smooth. Not as smooth as Don Julio 70! Entrees of Chicken Skewers, and Chicken, Shrimp & Steak were delicious. Aracherra steak had great flavor but was way too chewy, wouldn't recommend! Apple Tart... More
