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.

    It is a very nice Mexican restaurant in the Venetian hotel. Staff were very friendly and attentive. The cost of food is quite high… but it’s very expensive in ALL of Las Vegas… ridiculously so!

    This restaurant is a must-try! If you’re visiting The Strip, you have to consider dining with Canonita. The food was delicious and the servers were professional. Not to mention the European aura this place has. Everything was perfect.

    Cañonita is always one of our go-to restaurants when we stay at the Venetian hotel. The service is excellent, the food is delicious and authentic. It’s an added treat to sit on the patio beside the canal and listen to the gondola singers as they row by.

    We enjoyed a pleasant dinner at Canonita “canal-side” in the Venitian. Service was perfect with great info from our server who guided our choices. Portions were large (more than I could possibly eat) but food was tasty. Great people watching opportunities! All in all a nice evening.

    So me and my husband went and we had our jug of Fat Tuesday and (outside drinks aren’t allowed in) so we either had to dump it or chug it. And these drinks are expensive so my husband and I chugged our slushies with 4 shots each as fast as we could, when we finished we were able to get seated and I started to not feel well…. As soon as our food got to our table we asked for it to go :( but when we ate it at our room it was AMAZING! I got the barbaquoa and idk what my husband got but it was Al delicious definitely going again sober!

    Had to wait over 15 minutes for the waitress to come to our table. A woman sitting at the next table was screaming into her phone all during our meal. It would have been nice for someone to ask her to take the call else. She was very disruptive
