Looking for a "neat" place to grab a bite - find Taqueria Canonita - inside The Venetian Hotel. Ask for a table next to the canal. As you dine - wide variety of Mexican food & what we had was very good --- you can watch the Gondolas maneuver their ways through the canal. You get the feeling that you... More

We had lunch here and were surprised to see that they accommodate our requests and changed the menu as one of our companions had some dietary restrictions. I ordered the taco sampler which came with 5 different tacos and it was delicious and well served. The fajitas were also very well prepared. As appetizers the queso fundido is always a... More

Stylized Mexican food, okay but not excellent. Overpriced. The chili rellenos are good - but preferred the recipe of several years ago (stuffed with goat cheese which was EXCEPTIONAL).

The place is right on the 'water' of the indoor Venetian hotel. I had the pork barbacoa dish which was muy bueno!. Waitress was attentive, and i would definitely go back.

We stopped here for a quick bite for lunch and had steak and chicken tacos, and a few margaritas. Everything was amazing. Service was fantastic, and the chips and salsa were a great start. Tacos were fresh, and the "beef" tacos were actually steak taco's and my husband said the quality of meat and flavor was WAY better than the... More

Excellent margaritas and good (not great) Mexican food. Service attentive and friendly. The best bit was the view overlooking the gondolas and being serenaded by the gondoliers. Crazy stuff. Vegas.

Had 2 meals here in late October (it had availability.....hmm). Most of the food was uninspired and you could have been in any chain Mexican restaurant anywhere in the world.

We went here for lunch last week. Very good service, good food. The food was really very good and reasonably priced for what you get. We would definitely eat here again. Would recommend this place.

Bringing to mind the authentic taquerias of the legendary marketplaces of Mexico, Chef Donna Willey brings you Canonita. This casual and exciting Mexican dining experience features an authentic, rustic menu of "Mexico-City Soul Food" with delectable tacos, ceviches and mouth watering barbacoa made with savory fire-roasted meats, grilled vegetables and the freshest seafood. Hand-made tortillas, refreshing salsas and fresh-juice Star Margaritas provide guests with an unforgettable "true taste of Mexico." The bustling open-air kitchen adds to the home-style warmth and energy of Canonita as do the patio festoon lighting and umbrellas with lively Salsa and Tejano music. Behind the bar many imported cervezas are featured alongside old-world Sangria and many premium Mexican tequilas, perfect for relaxed sipping.
