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.

Service was very good and ambiance was nice. We were seated under an umbrella next to the Gondola rides. Not an authentic Mexican Restaurant by any means. Had breakfast and eggs tasted fake, beans tasted like they were from a can and the potatoes were what you would get in a TV dinner. We had the bottomless mimosas and bloody marys which were very good.

It is lovely to be seated outside along the canal. My husband's beer braised short ribs were delicious. My enchiladas good but a little spicy. Could not stop eating the chips and queso.

Had high expectations but was really bummed out by the overall experience. Service was slow & unattentive even though it was not super busy. Food came out first then our drinks so we finished eating by the time we starting drinking. Not my favorite place by any means. Very okay.

The service was fair at best waited a long time when we were first seated to be greeted. The food was sub par enchiladas covered in bitter red sauce margaritas so strong and had no flavor. Food was ridiculously overpriced for the quality of food. Could have saved a lot of money and went to chilpolte.

I have food allergies and they were AMAZING about not only accommodating but the chef delivered our food and ensured us none of the allergens were in or had come in contact with our food - which was DELICIOUS 😋. Literally the best meal I’ve had in some time. Wonderful service, very attentive, and our new go-to on the strip.

The food was very good. Loved that we could watch the gondolas go by while we ate dinner. Service was awful. We made a reservation, then still had to wait to be seated. After we were sat it took our server 35 minutes to come get our drink orders and he pretty much ignored us until we found a manager to help us order food.
Also our server didn’t acknowledge that we were there for a special occasion.

Seemed to be so confusion as to who was doing what as far as the staff maybe because they had only been open for 30 minutes . Was never really sure who my server was. The food was good though so can overlook all the confusion. Had the Mexico City enchiladas (chicken). The rice and beans served with it were flavorful and complemented the dish.

My husband and I have lunch here on our anniversary. My reservation request was honored and we were seated right by the canal. The server was attentive and we never felt ignored. I ordered the salmon and quinoa which was amazing. My husband’s enchiladas were tasty but didn’t compare to the salmon. We ordered the prickly pear margarita which was divine! just do yourself a favor and order the pitcher. get it with the sugar rum. The sugar compliments the tartness of the prickly pear. I would eat here again when I return to Vegas.
