Each year we try to visit La Destileria as one of our faves, especially for the combo of great food, drink, service and sunset. My favorite dish is the pechuga de pollo con tres quesos. it's a chicken breast stuffed with a combo of cheeses. Great taste and prep.

We went with eight people and were delighted at the place. More than the food, it was a fun atmosphere, the band played at our table and the wait staff was great! I would definitely go again and enjoy two more margaritas.

Been dining here for over 20+ years and it never disappoints! Start with their amazing chalupa's and Sopa de Tortilla. The "Love Margarita" has been known to start an impromptu romance .. so watch out.

A chance to have fun and sing along with the mariachi group and to experience authentic Mexican food. Dining is inside or on the patio, and serves good food-- my husband says the very best... More

Family of five. This is more of a high-end tourist mexican meal place so excellent Mexican food but still a little of the fun, tourist vibe if you want a bit of that. They had a live band walking around playing for tips and that added nicely to the fun night experience (they were outstanding). It's on the water if... More
