We always love coming here to eat the delicious food and drink the amazing tequila! We always try something different and have never been disappointed. This time we had the steak, lobster and shrimp platter for 2. It was absolutely mouth watering! We tried the Maestro Anejo tequila and it was so smooth and yummy! The service here is the... More

Visited with a group - on the site of an old distillery, they emphasize traditional food and, yes, tequila! We tried several tequilas and all the food. It was very good - they have a large indoor seating area and outdoor seating. There is also a gift shop with every type and shape bottle of tequila.

La Destilleria has become one of our favorite restaurants in Cancun! We were just there last week and can't say enough about the food, the service, and the atmosphere. If you want a real treat, try the Bull Shot Steak - prepared tableside in a mouth-watering sauce. The Tequila Shrimp is also prepared tableside and is equally as good if... More

We ate here twice it was so nice. Excellent service, terrific view, and the price was very reasonable for one of the better restaurants in Cancun. It is casual, yet much better then a chain restaurant. Good for a date or with the family.

Our family celebrated a birthday with dinner at sunset here. Service was outstanding - not suffocating but appropriately attentive. Kids enjoyed magic tricks from one server. Food was interesting - definitely not boring Mexican fare but not so unusual that it was intimidating. Two of us had different varieties of the molcajete dish - highly recommended. Margaritas were very good... More

La Destileria was a wonderful spot for dinner. We ate on the terrace, enjoyed the lagoon view with yummy margaritas, great service and a mariachi band playing throughout the restaurant. The Molcajete is definitely large enough to share! Although described as a taco in the menu, this is a large stone chalice of Mexican stew with your choice of meat,... More

A good menu; food was average. Excellent drinks. Good appetizers. Really good table-side prepared guacamole.

We love going to La Destileria each year. The food is delicious, the wait staff is always attentive and entertaining. The destileria soup is always a favorite and the flambe steak is great. Definitely worth trying. We never have room for dessert.

We came here for dinner based on recommendation for concierge at hotel. Took the bus and dropped us off right across the street by the fire department. We were seated right away even though we arrived 15min before our reservation. We sat outside on the patio and it's right on top of the lagoon so it had a great view.... More
