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.

Thanksgiving menu was wonderful. We sat right on the water so it was a bit loud, but that was expected. Loved it.

That 16$ ceviche was definitely not worth the money. Maybe 8$ .... maybe. Definitely drop the price on that.

My boyfriend and I have never had such a authentic Mexico City dining experience like this in the US. It really made my boyfriend who is from CDMX feel so at home for his special birthday dinner. The food was so amazing, the drinks were delicious and the service was such a delight.

A must when we visit Las Vegas. We have been going for many years. The food is excellent and the raspberry mojitos a must. A flight is even better.
Javier took great care of us and did a special desert for our friends Birthday.
We will be back!!!

We came here for my husband’s 40th birthday lunch, and everything was awesome. The server was very attentive and helpful. The ambiance was beautiful, with a direct view of the canal and gondolas. The food and drinks were delicious! We had chips, salsa, guacamole, and flautas. And then the server surprised my husband with complimentary birthday churros, which were so fresh and amazing! They put a candle on them too, which was perfect. We had such a wonderful experience!

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!
