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.

My most favorite thing was the rice, it was delicious. I had a vegetarian burrito and it was also great. Really glad we tried this restaurant. Reservations were very easy to book Open Table as well, loved this option.

Have eaten there for the last 10 tears always consistent with good food. Usually get the shrimp and mussels and another side that compliments.

We've been going here for years. This time the food was mediocre. The rice was bland, beans were OK, guacamole needed salt. They don't have the mushroom enchiladas with poblano cream sauce anymore which were wonderful. They blame Covid and lack of staff. Hopefully they can turn things around, we won't be going back for a while.

We went for brunch and the mimosas tasted horrible. I believe it was the champagne used. The server was very gracious and removed them from our table and did not charge us for them.

Food was great especially the guacamole. Service was slow. Took a good 20 minutes to get a glass of wine after order placed. Restaurant wasn’t that full so I think he may have forgotten me.

Both me and my husband ordered chicken fajitas. And ended up having gastroenteritis . I don’t know if it was the chicken or the lettuce and tomatoes, but they definitely need to restock fresh veggies and meat everyday. Bad experience.
