Found inside the Venetian along side the canal. Reasonable Tex-Mex food with good sangria. Large serving sizes suitable for two people. A bit expensive for typical Mexican but to be expected inside a major hotel.

We had dinner with family on June 11, 2017 and we did not think the food or service was very good. Not fresh. Daughter ordered Fajitas and could not eat them because the meat was so tough and under cooked. It was a big disappointment.

How far is the walk from the entrance to the hotel? My fiance can not walk very far.

For an able bodied person, it's not that bad of a walk. For someone who cannot walk very far, it can be a little trying in both distance and time. You have to meander through quite a bit of people, shops, etc. I think the... More

Bringing to mind the authentic taquerias of the legendary marketplaces of Mexico, Chef Donna Willey brings you Canonita. This casual and exciting Mexican dining experience features an authentic, rustic menu of "Mexico-City Soul Food" with delectable tacos, ceviches and mouth watering barbacoa made with savory fire-roasted meats, grilled vegetables and the freshest seafood. Hand-made tortillas, refreshing salsas and fresh-juice Star Margaritas provide guests with an unforgettable "true taste of Mexico." The bustling open-air kitchen adds to the home-style warmth and energy of Canonita as do the patio festoon lighting and umbrellas with lively Salsa and Tejano music. Behind the bar many imported cervezas are featured alongside old-world Sangria and many premium Mexican tequilas, perfect for relaxed sipping.
