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.

    The ambience, location and food is outstanding. I highly recommend this place. I had the mushroom enchiladas which was something I never tried before and they were amazing. They come with a drunken beans which I’m allergic to and the server and the chef went out of their way to accommodate that which was greatly appreciated. We also had the seafood ceviche which had the best calamari I’ve tasted anywhere. And we shared the ahi seared tuna tortilla salad words can not describe the tender tastiness of that tuna. The location on the canal with the gondolas floating by is really great only downside, it is extremely noisy making conversation difficult.

    We always enjoy dinner at Canoñita whenever we come to Vegas. Barbacoa is our favorite entree and it never disappoints. Guacamole is fantastic, too. Wonderful service, and of course, table by the canal is so nice.

    Very nice fresh food with a good twist on Mexican food. We had a table at the water and our server Carlos was very friendly and gave good advice about amount and the food itself. Prices are on the high site but that is to be expected given the location.

    We went to Canonita for my daughters birthday, she didn’t want a big scene for her birthday, so our server brought her a birthday desert making her feel special without the attention. Our server was OUTSTANDING. She was so attentive and very friendly. The entire experience was a night to remember. Our table was close to the water, seeing the gondola rides go by was really nice. The food was great too, we were all happy with what we ordered. We will defiantly go back. 🤍

    We loved the friendly greeting and flexibility with our reservations, due to our ever changing itinerary. We appreciate being accommodated for a later seating and that we got to sit on the terrace Mandy took great care of us and awesome recommendations! We loved the taco sampler, flautas and chips and dip, but most especially enjoyed the bottle of sangria for the table 😁

    Went here with my brother and had a great time! The food was delicious and hot. I had to hold myself back from getting something to go. It was a little over the budget we set out, but it was worth every penny. I can't wait to go back soon.

    We enjoyed our dinner overall. The service was slower then I expected and our drinks took a very very long time to get there. I ordered crab and shrimp cakes, and to be honest they weren’t fabulous but the sauce was very very good. The salsa was very flavorful but the quac was just average. Husband ordered the carnitas and we enjoyed his dish very much.
