Goodness I've been here over 75 times since 2000 I love the familiarity of the location , the staff, like Octavio and the LOVE MARGARITA . Omigoodness the Love Margarita is why we go . The view of the lagoon , sunsets , marina of yachts and sometime crocodile is why we go so frequently. Plus my husband favors the... More

We have been here many times and it never disappoints. Very authentic Mexican cuisine in a very fun atmosphere. A 7 piece mariachi band strolls to tables and they are wonderful and quite good musicians.

We actually spent two nights having dinner here because it was sooooo good the first time. First time we sat out on the balcony which is beautiful and quiet. Live music and delicious food. The second night we stopped in and sat at the bar. We both ordered their taco soup. So amazing you will go back for more.

The chicken mole was the best we ever had. All the dishes were wonderful. Sit out on the deck for a beautiful sunset. Service was terrific. Our only complaint is the place is expensive.

From the appetizers to desert, everything was delicious. Spicy for my husband, medium for me and NOT spicy for my daughter! They had it all! Live Mariachi Band walking thru and played our favorite song. We also took a silly family photo with large sombreros. They put the photo in a La Destileria frame as a souvenir! It was great!

We actually went two nights in a row. The first night we had a great time. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. Service was quick and the food excellent. The second night, it took 20 minutes for our waiter to show up and the rest of the meal followed suit. The food was still good but the service was disappointing.

The food is exactly what you'd expect in a mid-range family friendly joint on the strip. They delivered on every level! Loved the mariachi band and super friendly, quick service!

Ate out on the back patio. The mariachi band was good. Fun mixed drinks. The fish tacos were not what we expected-looked liked burnt fish sticks on a tortilla. Salmon was good. The stuffed chicken breast super small. We enjoyed trying the different flavored tequilas in the shop. Taxis were dropping people off. They have great prices on tequilas and... More

This is a good Mexican restaurant with delicious offerings. The mole sauce is exquisite and is highly recommended. The margaritas are delicious as well. The wait staff is very friendly and accommodating for any picky eaters. It is a bit cheesy though as they have a photographer that goes around and places sombreros on people's heads and takes pictures. There... More

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!
