 Good atmosphere
and exellent service. Also waiters seem to be quite the performers when they where carring big margaritas on top of their heads to the tables! Also food was very good.

 Authentic Mexican Cuisine
Loved this restaurant. This is the location in downtown Cancun. I think they have another one in the Hotel Zone. Having been to many parts of Mexico, I can tell you that this is the real deal. We took a taxi from our hotel. I think it cost about 200 pesos, or $12.00. It was lively inside with strolling mariachis that were pretty good. The wait staff was all young men, well groomed and very professional. They gave us chips and salsa and my partner ordered Lime soup for a starter. Be aware that most restaurants in the Yucatan will use Chili Habanero in their salsas and it's VERY hot.We both had Cochinita Pibil, a Yucatanian specialty of pork, slow roasted in banana leaves. It was deliciosa, served in a clay pot with a heavenly sauce. We had this dish years ago in another restaurant and have tried it many times since. This was, by far, the best. Leave you're snooty pretensions behind and experience the real Mexico.

 Yummy!
I ate here while vacationing in Cancun, this restaurant was recommended by a bar tendender at the resort I was staying at. The food was excellent, authentic Mexican cuisine. The portions were large and it was priced nicely! The highlight of the evening, the mariachi band! It cost $10 for 1 song and it was well worth it!

 Worth the trip to town
There are plenty of restaurants along the Hotel Zone strip in Cancun, there's even a La Parilla right across the avenue from our hotel, but I'm so glad we strayed a bit to this one in downtown Cancun. Do not miss out on the grilled octopus. It was simply the best we ever had, very tender, not chewy, with such satisfying flavor.

 Had a great time
I understand there are other locations but we visited the one downtown Cancun. If you drive there watch out for the biggest speed bumps I have ever seen which are mostly unmarked. This location is not air-conditioned but felt pleasant because of the breeze. The atmosphere is very festive, almost all the tables were taken and the mariachi music was great to listen to although I'm happy somebody else was paying for it because our waiter told us it costs an unbelievable $7.50 a song. The margaritas and rum punches ordered before the meal were all very good. All four of us ordered different dishes and everyone was happy. Mine was the taco sampler with four different types of meat and it was delicious. Prices are reasonable and the service was very good. We got a kick out of the waiters carrying drinks on top of their heads and pouring flaming liquor in the coffee of the ladies sitting next to us.

Had such a good time. Food was delicious I had the Combo fajitas my best friend had the Lobster. Both were excellent. But the best thing was the flaming Tequila coffee. Nice show and very good drink well worth the price.

 Authentic and Amazing Service!
The restaurant is located on a narrow street with little or no parking... but they have valet service! I would definitely recommend using it since it is free. We entered the restuarant and soon realized that everyone only spoke Spanish but don't be fooled by it as the service was amazing and they made every effort in helping you with the ordering. We ordered bunch of dishes (along with the recommended list below) and were amazed by the deliciousness!! We had live music played at our table and since it was my nephew's 5th birthday, they sang Happy Birthday in Spanish as well (recommend tipping). We had a great time and my nephew loved each minute of it.My parents, my sister and family all were thoroughly impressed by the quality and authencity of food. It was definitely in the top 3 Mexican foods I have ever had!!

 delightful dishes with a side of entertainment from the waiters
Second time to eat here. The first was two years ago, at the downtown, on our first trip to Cancun. This time it is by the boardwalk at La Isla Mall. It is a different location, but same quality of food... delightful. We ordered guacamole and grilled cactus for appetizer; and I had the grilled octopus for main entree. Outstanding meal I would say. The Octopus is soft, and with a delicious taste of their marinate. I was full as we left the place.The best part is the surprised entertainment from waiters as they carry the drinks on their head- that was really awesome!!! Great job there!The price is reasonable; service is great. Location is also great. Come in an early dinner and watch the sunset from the sea when you eat outside.

The Staff here are amazing, the food is out of this world and the entertainment is #1 in my books. The Cancun Margarita is a MUST TRY here. The Manager is always present and they can cook your supper in front of you if you like (on some dishes). Prices are reasonable. Live Mariachi Band every night

My fiancé and I will be returning to Cancun October 25 through 29, 2017. We will be visiting this location all four nights! We were there last year during the American Thanksgiving weekend. We hope to see our friends, Renauldo and Raul. They were our two favorite servers last year. We enjoy the food, the atmosphere and of course, Renauldo brings my drinks to me on his head!

There are a few locations, we ate at the one located near market 23. We went on a Sunday and they offer a buffet. A variety of food to choose from. Everything that we ate was delicious. Service was great. Of course the highlight is watching them bring your drinks stacked on their head. This is the second time we have eaten here and it hasn’t disappointed.

 Delicious and entertaining
My family of six adults went for our last night in Cancun. It was wonderful! The food was great and the device was entertaining and festive. The waiter brought our drinks in his head. He made a shrimp dish table-side with great flair and after dinner coffee drinks were also prepared table-side. This was the most spectacular and involved both fire AND a ladder! The liquor was set on fire and poured down a series of vessels making a water fall from near the ceiling into glasses below. BRAVO!!! We had drinks, appetizers, dessert and fancy dessert coffee...more food than we could eat for about 300usd.

 Best time ever! Plus food
Started with a delightfully musical Mariachi's ambiance and a warm and joyful greeting! Located in a safe tourist area. Loved the service and not to mention the food. Authentic Mexican and clean restaurant. Don't leave without your personalized tequila bottle and picture gram with Mexican hat (34.00 us cash for both). I felt catered to hand and foot. They take all major credit cards. Right across from forever 21! Parking is convenient but you do have to be patient to find a close by spot. We had super nachos (says for 4 but feeds about 3). Fajita mexicana feeds 2 reasonably priced!

We took a group of ten family members here and were not disappointed one bit. The food was fantastic! The entertainment was even better especially when one of the customers started singing with the mariachi band. Wow! Totally authentic and good prices too. This should be on your list when visiting Cancun. It's not close to the beach though. Take Uber or a taxi, if necessary. I highly recommend this place. The waiter brought a beer mug balanced on his head too. Si!!

 Excellent and authentic Mexican food!
This is a very authentic Mexican restaurant near the center of downtown Cancun. To reach it from the hotel zone, "Zona Hotelera" is very easy using the local bus for $1 per person, however there are two things to keep in mind....1-the bus has no air conditioning, and 2-you want to head out around 5ish because from about 6-8pm everyone who works at the hotels is heading home and you are stuck in traffic for quite a while. A taxi ride is about 10-15 dollars depending on which hotel you are staying at.The atmosphere is wonderful, with live mariachis and authentic Mexican decor. The food is even more excellent, and everything we had there was fresh and delicious. The service was extraordinary also, friendly and fast. I highly recommend this location for dining and it has a wide variety of items on the menu for vegetarians and meat eaters alike.

 La Parilla never fails
La Parilla, no matter what time of day or what day of week, never fails. Whether you want the Mayan grill or just appetizers and cold beverages, this is the place for authentic Mexican cuisine. We always make a stop here our first day in town and this trip was no exception. We arrived in the middle of the day and were ready for something cold to drink and some good food. I ordered the Pork Pauchos and my husband had grilled chicken tacos. Both were perfect. The staff is friendly and the food is prepared quickly and served with a flair. This is a "must visit" on your trip to Cancun. We even make a stop here before we board the ferry if we are going to Isla Mujeres. Don't miss out!

 Phenomenal!
This place has the best service we've experienced so far, in Cancun. Alan, was our server, and he was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, professional, personable, and charismatic. The food was also outstanding, from flavors to presentation. The cocktails are strong and the ambiance is warm and inviting. Try the Mexican sampler for an appetizer. We indulged in dessert as well, and were not disappointed. The Mariachi band strolls through nightly, and you can buy a song for 120 pesos. The band is amazing! Don't miss this restaurant!!!

 Authentic Mexican Cuisine
Loved this restaurant. This is the location in downtown Cancun. I think they have another one in the Hotel Zone. Having been to many parts of Mexico, I can tell you that this is the real deal. We took a taxi from our hotel. I think it cost about 200 pesos, or $12.00. It was lively inside with strolling mariachis that were pretty good. The wait staff was all young men, well groomed and very professional. They gave us chips and salsa and my partner ordered Lime soup for a starter. Be aware that most restaurants in the Yucatan will use Chili Habanero in their salsas and it's VERY hot.We both had Cochinita Pibil, a Yucatanian specialty of pork, slow roasted in banana leaves. It was deliciosa, served in a clay pot with a heavenly sauce. We had this dish years ago in another restaurant and have tried it many times since. This was, by far, the best. Leave you're snooty pretensions behind and experience the real Mexico.

 Yummy!
I ate here while vacationing in Cancun, this restaurant was recommended by a bar tendender at the resort I was staying at. The food was excellent, authentic Mexican cuisine. The portions were large and it was priced nicely! The highlight of the evening, the mariachi band! It cost $10 for 1 song and it was well worth it!

 Worth the trip to town
There are plenty of restaurants along the Hotel Zone strip in Cancun, there's even a La Parilla right across the avenue from our hotel, but I'm so glad we strayed a bit to this one in downtown Cancun. Do not miss out on the grilled octopus. It was simply the best we ever had, very tender, not chewy, with such satisfying flavor.

 Had a great time
I understand there are other locations but we visited the one downtown Cancun. If you drive there watch out for the biggest speed bumps I have ever seen which are mostly unmarked. This location is not air-conditioned but felt pleasant because of the breeze. The atmosphere is very festive, almost all the tables were taken and the mariachi music was great to listen to although I'm happy somebody else was paying for it because our waiter told us it costs an unbelievable $7.50 a song. The margaritas and rum punches ordered before the meal were all very good. All four of us ordered different dishes and everyone was happy. Mine was the taco sampler with four different types of meat and it was delicious. Prices are reasonable and the service was very good. We got a kick out of the waiters carrying drinks on top of their heads and pouring flaming liquor in the coffee of the ladies sitting next to us.

 Phenomenal!
This place has the best service we've experienced so far, in Cancun. Alan, was our server, and he was outstanding. He was knowledgeable, professional, personable, and charismatic. The food was also outstanding, from flavors to presentation. The cocktails are strong and the ambiance is warm and inviting. Try the Mexican sampler for an appetizer. We indulged in dessert as well, and were not disappointed. The Mariachi band strolls through nightly, and you can buy a song for 120 pesos. The band is amazing! Don't miss this restaurant!!!

Excellent food , attentive staff and live mariachi bands play while you eat . Little on the pricey side but worth it . Not a place to do every night unless you have deep pockets

 Good Food, Great Sunset
We ate at the La Parilla by the bay in the mall at about kilometer 12. The food was very good, the service was excellent and the staff was friendly and attentive. This is a wonderful place to have dinner at sunset. The Sunset sets the bay an fire and has really good photo ops. The attached mall is full of upscale tourist store if that is your thing. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Great food, great stuff, great atmosphere. We spend 150 dhs for two of us so it's quite expensive. That's why I gave 4 not 5 stars.More

I love this place,REAL Mexican food & vibe. This was my 3rd visit here; we even went to their location at the La Isla mall,which is on the beach. Drinks are real,no funny business here( a lot in the news this week about unsavory alcohol in Mexico!). fajitas are great as are tocos. You can even watch as the tortillas are being made near the rear of this local. I would recommend both sites.

 Good restaurant with buffet until 5 p.m.
This restaurant has buffet until 5 p.m., after that could be expensive but if you order a family pack you can all eat and fill yourselves up, drinks are kinda expensive for sodas, i can just imagine the tequila drinks, it is located in the main street and you can park around the corner , safe and good to park....restaurant carries a lot of tourists. food average prices high, just OK

 The mexican place for tacos and beers you have been looking for.
When in Rome, do like the romans, right? So when you visit other places ask a local for their favorite eateries. La Parilla sits right on front of the Lagoon in quaint La Isla Shopping Mall. Their food is authentic as they come. My waiter quipped that he could sit and eat the Pastor Tacos (the typical ones) everyday if they let him. Everything is fresh. You never had a corn tortilla like at La Parilla. They do have other full entrees, for which I cannot wait to go back and try

 Very good; why no complete listing?
We ate at La Parrilla at La Isla shopping center in June of 2015. We liked it and wanted to return. We found that their website made no mention of the La Isla location, and the most recent Tripadvisor review for the La Isla location was dated 2015. We decided to go to La Isla anyway, and we found the restaurant alive and well. We had a great time. This situation is very confusing and misleading, and both La Parrilla and Tripadvisor should make corrections.

 Good but not great
Located on the water in La Isla Shopping Center, this place has a good location but the food was basically average for what we got. We ordered the guacamole and chips first which was ok but did not have a lot of flavor. Same with the combo fajitas regarding the chicken and beef; the shrimp in the dish was flavorful however and there were plenty of veggies. The coconut shrimp was the highlight; big shrimp with a tasty coating. Service very good. Recommend going with dishes that have shrimp.

 Lunch overlooking lagoon
Had lunch here today, 5 of us. Cheese Taco was awful, house salad was huge though and very good, fajitas were also very good. So on balance food is good but not great. Shaded but outside, no aircon just fans circulating hot air. Automatically added a tip of about 15% which waiter told me was mandatory - he removed it when i told him i'd pay cash. I have no problems with tips but won't be told by a waiter. Watch out if you pay by card as they try and stuff you again both on another surcharge and currency conversion - pay in Peso for the best deal. Would I go back - no

 "No I don't want to buy a picture."
Our hotel recommended this place as "the best Mexican food you will find" Sadly we were very disappointed in the food. We both ordered a meal that comes with 5 different tacos, chicken, porkchop, steak, "pastor", and chorizo. The chicken and pork were good the others lacked flavor. Our server was very nice and the entertainment of seeing them balance our drinks on their heads was pretty cool! At one point a young lady came with sombreros asked us to put them on and take a picture. We complied then I asked her to take a picture on my phone please. She told me I had to Take the sombrero off first. Sure no problem. Later she came over with our picture in a frame asking did we want to purchase it for $6. We said no thanks she then left it on the table and told us to think about it. Overall the service was good, the food was disappointing and later upset my stomach, and I could do without the soliciting. Would not go back.

 Tourist trap
I'm pretty sure people get kick backs for recommending this place because they ask at the door if anyone told you about it and 3 different people told us go there. The food was about as average as an OK tex-mex restaurant in the states would be, with very American-ized dishes. The service was great, and they really worked hard on the entertainment value -- Mariachi bands, balancing margaritas on the head, the whole deal. The major downside was the price. I've been to some truly wonderful and far more authentic Mexican restaurants inside and outside of Mexico that cost half the price. Not really worth the trouble, don't recommend.

 There are many BETTER restaurants….
La Parrilla is located in the rear, on the water of the La Isla Shopping Village. The first thing that should have told us this was (in another reviewers words) a tourist trap, were the staff that were calling people in from the sidewalk, and being kind of harassing to get people to come into the restaurant. As you walked past they were very intrusive. We could barely read the menu to make up our mind. Because we were hungry we went in.There isn’t much ambiance other than the "traditional" party piñatas. The table, and menus were sticky. The menu consisted of typical Mexican dishes with nothing out of the ordinary, however, the prices were good however. It also became apparent that the restaurant was known for its cocktails, as waiters delivered drinks stacked on their heads. That was actually the best part of La Parrilla. The food was just OK, The service was so-so and the setting was kind of touristy.Unfortunately I would not recommend La Parrilla.. there are TOO many other restaurants in the area that are probably just as good, if not better. Don’t let the staffers pull you in unless you are looking for a drink delivered on the head of your waiter.

 Pricey compared to other locations in Mexico
We live in the Puerto Vallarta area. This place offers very typical food that you could get in a taco stand or restaurant just about anywhere in Mexico. The price was more than double than what we would have paid in PV or Sayulita and triple than what you would pay in a non-coastal city. Food was ok but nothing special. Servers were very attentive. We were not drinking so can't really review the drinks. For its sake, Cancun in general is much more expensive than PV or anywhere else we have traveled. The restaurant's location is not in a tourist area and is far from the ocean.
