We had a lagoon side table, which was nice. It was a festive atmosphere, so was somewhat noisier than we would have liked. We were meeting with friends we hadn’t seen in years. At 7:30 the mariachis came in, and they were good. The food was tasty. We had mole, cochinita pibil, and two fish dishes featuring red snapper with different sauces. Though the food was great, the margaritas were a disappointment. They tasted like U.S. style margaritas, made with sweet and sour mix rather than to classic margarita of tequila, Cointreau or triple sec, agave and a splash of lime. The real thing is hard to find here.

Went there for a quick dinner on Sunday night. The place was almost closing but they accommodated us. Food was good and the mezcal cocktails were amazing. They even got a dessert as a surprise for my wife’s bday which was much appreciated.

On a family vacation in Cancun and we asked the concierge at our hotel to recommend a good Mexican restaurant. He gave us 3 suggestions and we picked La Destileria. Beautiful outside deck to eat and watch the sunset (also has indoor dining) The staff was attentive and very helpful the food was wonderful. Our son has pork tacos, I had chili rellenos and my spouse had steak with peppers. We were all more than satisfied with our meals. As a matter of fact we went back two nights later for dinner. I would recommend La Destileria to anyone who was in Cancun and wanted a great meal. Also the prices were more than reasonable. Shout out to Ruben (one of our waiters) for great service! Also had a strolling Mariachi band the 2nd night. This was an added bonus and was fun to watch and listen to the live music!

Very nice restaurant with excellent food, ask the waitress for recommendations and you will have a superb Mexican dinner. Drinks are great too. The professional staff was great especially Christian. Mariachi band was fun.

I went to this restaurant on Christmas evening and what a disappointment. The food was bland and had zero taste. The restaurant advertises live music yet the mariachi band wasn’t there. The food is reasonably priced but you can find many other establishments with authentic Mexican. Stay away from this place. Horrible experience.

I really enjoyed the food and service at this restaurant. I had a chicken dish and my mom chile rellinos. She raved about her entree. Guacamole was made tableside. Margaritas were fabulous. Dessert was wonderful too, corncake with eggnog sauce and tres leche cake. Mariachi band came on at 7:30 pm.

We arrived on time for the reservation, but the hostess had no record of it. They offered to seat us but also said that we’d need to leave in 45 min to make room for a private party. This is no way to do business.

I would absolutely recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for very good Mexican food at reasonable prices. Great service, solid selections and Mariachi singers come through at 7:30 each evening. Awesome overall experience!

Always visit LaDisteliria on our visits to Cancun. That visit everything was good except the Skirt Steak was extremely touch, chewy & greasy in the Lava Bowl. The guacamole (prepared table side) was excellent. Was surprised we were charged twice for ordering a side of salsa or pico to go along with the Guac.... Hmmm!! Otherwise Good Experience!

Nice location on the lagoon and walking distance from our hotel. The soups were absolutely outstanding. I ordered the shrimp tacos; they were a bit spicy but so delicious. My partner ordered the beef/meat tacos; he found them dry and substandard. The staff was welcoming and the mariachi duet was a cool bonus to our night.

Food, staff and service was excellent. However, the restaurant reported that we had not dined there and I had to submit proof to Open Table in order to get my points. I was not happy with the extra hoops I was forced to jump through

My wife an I ate at this restaurant about 6 years ago. We were recommended by the hotel and we had a good experience and thought the food was good and authentic. Unfortunately it was not the case this tine. Drinks were awful and somebody hounding you for a picture that cost $32 US. There are way too many places in Cancun to eat that are better.

My boyfriend & I came here because we saw it on our way to the hotel, and we were curious about the tequila tour! David was our guide & he was absolutely amazing he really knows his tequilas and everything he recommended was 10/10! If you have time to visit this place definitely do it & visit David! The tequila & food are to die for!
