Traditional Mexican
Carefully crafted from authentic recipes, every meal at Cañonita is a feast for the eyes and adventure for the taste buds.

Heritage and innovation merge with menu selections such as Santa Rosa Barbacoa and Mexico City Enchiladas for lunch, and Carne Asada and Pollo Mole Poblano for dinner. Our bar features a wide variety of beers, wines, cocktails, and fresh margaritas and guests can sample one of more than 50 fine-aged, authentic tequilas.

As the only restaurant located along the canal-front in The Venetian and The Palazzo, Cañonita offers guests a unique opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the Grand Canal, with waterfront views of the resort's famous singing gondoliers. Outside, our Street Taqueria food truck recreates an essential element of Mexico City's culinary and cultural landscape, featuring a variety of street foods and house-infused margaritas.

We went to watch the Dodger game and eat some great Pozole and mushroom enchiladas! The service was phenomenal as were the food and drinks! The pozole was outstanding ! The watermelon cucumber / mint cocktail was so refreshing and delicious! Our server I believe attentive and provided excellent service. We would definitely go back!

We were looking for a special place to enjoy our 40th anniversary and Canonita was perfect in every way!! Located in the Venetian overlooking the Gondola ride the atmosphere was very romantic. Add to that superb food and excellent service! Our server, Javier was excellent and offered great recommendations and also took our picture! We highly recommend it and ask for Javier!

Armondo was the real MVP and was the best part of our trip there. He was an excellent server/ bartender while helping us pick out our best menu options. A great spot for brunch at the Venetian and a great bottomless mimosa bar !!!

We were excited to try this place, but I have to say it was just average. We went for an early brunch, there was no wait. There were not a lot of people in the restaurant, the food took forever to come out. I have to say the crabcakes are amazing, probably the best I’ve ever had. The rest of the food though, not so much. Not really what I expected for Vegas.

Our server was nice, but there was nothing that really stood out for me to say that it was amazing service.

We’ve been to this Mex many many times. Not sure if I should comment on the staff or the margaritas first?! I’ll start with the staff... we generally sit at the bar. The bar staff is bend over backwards accommodating. The Canonita margarita is top shelf no pun intended. My husband and I travel a lot and visit Vegas often and Canonita is a regular for us and it never disappoints!

Food Overpriced
Nothing especial than any other mexican restaurant
The Barbacoa is very sweet and the Beans too salty
Taco sampler no coments
Mussels are delicious but very difficult to eat from the plate onthe top.
The Margaritas it was very sweet
they need to balance the cocktails
