We have been here nearly a week now and have at last found a good restaurant. Delicious authentic Mexican fare in a great setting. Drinks were also great. Also had live Mexican music which was fun. All in all a very positive experience. May be returning this evening!

My family and I went to 3 restaurants in Cancun with Mariachi Bands and La Destileria was by far our favorite. The food is top notch. The service impeccable and the view of the sunset outside puts this restaurant at the top of our experience list. Especially since there is a separate 'tasting' room if you are into tequila. Great...

Bell boy in our hotel recommended this restaurant. The food is excellent. Each one of us ordered different dishes. All of them are good. Mariachi band stopped by and sang the songs at our table. Didn't like the guy who is pushing us to buy photos. Overall good experience

We had a wonderful table with full view of the bay at sunset. Although it was not the time of year to enjoy any crocodiles swimming nearby we still enjoyed the setting sun. The restaurant was not crowded as we arrived for an early dinner. Consequently, we had relatively quick and attentive service which we had not experienced elsewhere. The... More

We really enjoyed La Destileria. You can sit outside on the water. There is a mariachi band that plays. We went twice and both times our servers were extremely friendly and helpful. The drinks were great. We got Margarita Love which was worth the price! The guacamole is made at your table. The tres lèches was amazing. The gift shop... More

My family visited for lunch on this trip without me, but insisted we head back for dinner our last night in Cancun. I have been here for lunch before and recommended this to many people while in Cancun. We have never been disappointed and the desserts are to die for

La Destileria is the third of our favorite dining destinations when visiting Cancun. Most often we have dined inside however last year we were fortunate to be able to sit outside and it was beautiful. My wife still speaks of how great the table side prepared guacamole was and as always the roving musicians were the best! They are very... More

We ventured to La Destileria upon the recommendation of our concierge and for my birthday and had a terrific time. The staff provided us small welcome margaritas (for special occasion) upon our arrival and they were delicious (and then we had to have a few more large ones of course). The outside dining on the lagoon was relaxing, beautiful and... More

Went exploring after checking into our hotel and came acrooss this jewel. Friendly staff- quick service and wow we really enjoyed the food. Read in other reviews the food came too fast- for us it was normal and we ate every bite! Don't miss this place the prices were great too.
