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.

Food was good, but lots of waiting - to be seated, to receive menu, to receive utensils, to have order taken, check brought, etc.... they are understaffed

We had reservations and there were open tables and they wouldn't seat us right away. It took 15 minutes.

Also, more menu choices would be nice.

Out of all the places we ate at the Venetian/Pallazo this one was my absolute favorite. From service to portion size, excellent! The food is absolutely savory, the best you can get. You will enjoy every bite while you watch the gondolas go by. The waiter Nicholas we had went over and above, I spilled something on my dress & he brought me some club soda & extra napkins without me even saying anything. He also was very attentive to our drinks and making great food suggestions.
You will enjoy your experience.

I would not recommend this place to anyone. We waited 2 hours for our food after ordering. Also, the food was mediocre at best. I wanted to take my fiance and our family to a place that we would all enjoy and this place was just a let down.

We booked this place for brunch and it was a nice location. It was next to the canals inside of Venetian. It was easy to fine which was great being that it is in the middle of the shoppes. The service was delayed at first but once our orders were in, the food came quickly. The food was great for a brunch place. The greeter was very nice to comp us dessert for the delayed service at the beginning. Overall, everything went well and I would recommend this location to family and friends.

When we arrived for our reservation, we had to wait a little while, which isn’t a huge deal, but considering several tables seemed open was a little confusing. The food was excellent. Both my wife and I agreed, it was amongst the best we had in Vegas. Little loud as it’s next to the Shoppes and canal, but we felt like thats ok as sitting next to and overlooking the water was nice. Would definitely recommend and would go back again.

Service was very good and ambiance was nice. We were seated under an umbrella next to the Gondola rides. Not an authentic Mexican Restaurant by any means. Had breakfast and eggs tasted fake, beans tasted like they were from a can and the potatoes were what you would get in a TV dinner. We had the bottomless mimosas and bloody marys which were very good.

Had high expectations but was really bummed out by the overall experience. Service was slow & unattentive even though it was not super busy. Food came out first then our drinks so we finished eating by the time we starting drinking. Not my favorite place by any means. Very okay.
