We went in for late lunch about 2:00. Only three other tables were seated. Food was very good. Had black bean soup and tequila shrimp. My husband had a great steak. Service was awesome. We'll definitely be back.

From the bean based salsa and chips, to the Tequila cheese everything was delicious. We highly recommend the Destilería Soup, or the Tortilla soup. This was a great place for a light lunch, and next time in Cancun we plan to come here for dinner....More

Visited here when staying at The Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort and Spa - you get discount at this restaurant if you're staying there. The place was large and staff friendly. It had beautiful views and the food very tasty - would recommend and visit again.

If you like strolling Mexican musicians and mediocre food, this is the place for you. Standard American-Mexican dishes.

This is a fun casual dining choice on the lagoon. The restaurant makes its own tequila and its drink menu is full of colorful choices. There are large copper distilling barrels in the main dining area. On the night we were there a mariachi band...More

No. We walked from our hotel (at the Westin Lagunamar) and were immediately seated; with over 700 restaurants there in Cancun, it's not mandatory but if you prefer, they'll take a reservation. We definitely caught the bus... More

Does La Destileria give private tours? We would like to schedule something fun (and unique) for our rehearsal dinner.
