La Cava Del Tequila Review
Epcot celebrates the unique qualities of some of the greatest countries in the world, and part of what makes these nations so great is the different flavors they have explored and shared. From food to drinks, our world thrives due to the innate curiosity that has helped us try and explore new ways of preparing basic plants and animals. Well, Mexico has found and established one in particular that has kept people falling off their chairs and shouting in celebration for hundreds of years, and you’ll find it at “La Cava Del Tequila.”
Epcot’s Mexico Pavilion is marked by the giant Aztec pyramid, and from the outside, that’s pretty much all it is. But upon stepping inside, you are enveloped in the sights and sounds of a Mexican marketplace, with everything from sombreros to wooden dolls for sale. There you will find The Three Caballeros’ Gran Fiesta Tour as well as the San Angel Inn. But one attraction specially designed for those Disney-going adults is La Cava Del Tequila, a tequila bar with a wide variety of tequilas, margaritas, mezcal and a few bites to eat.
We found La Cava Del Tequila is so named because, as the name suggests, it is a cave, or at least a very small room, full of tequila and those drinking it. From the look of the menu outside the door, the list of drinks seemed endless, and some of the prices were astounding. But as a wise man once said, you get what you pay for.
Approaching the man behind the bar, it was made clear we needed some recommendations, and the man was happy to oblige. Given our interest in trying the three main types of tequila, he suggested one Blanco, one Repasado, and one Anejo, which he provided for us in a flight for roughly $28. This was cheap compared to some of the tequilas, which ranged from $8 to about $80 for a single shot.
Taking the tray of shots complete with 2 lime wedges, salt, and a shot of tomato juice, we took a seat by a lovely fountain outside the door of the cave, as the place was jam packed with patrons. The first to go down was the Blanco, smooth and un-aged, without a powerful kick, yet holding all the flavor you’d expect from a fine tequila. Next, the Repasado, aged between two months and year, had a bit more of a kick, but was no less smooth than the first. And last, the Anejo, which was aged between one and three years, came with the punch you usually expect from tequila. It was only on this last shot that this experienced drinker needed to suck down a lime.
Whether you are here for the Food and Wine Festival or just visiting with the family, make sure you sneak away to check out La Cava Del Tequila. With over 100 tequilas and mescals, you’re sure to find something you like, and you’re certain to have an experience worth sharing.

Food: As the name suggests, this is truly a “cave of tequila.” With over 100 different tequilas and mezcals, ranging from intense blancos to smooth anejos, you are certain to find the flavor you are looking for. Flights are also available for taste testers and newbies alike, and a few simple tapas are also on the menu if you get the munchies.
Atmosphere: “La Cava Del Tequila” is, once again, very accurate to the atmosphere as the bar is tucked into a small room, giving the illusion of a cave. It’s a bit cramped and crowded (for good reason), but if you ask politely, you can take your drinks and sit just outside the cave where you can get some fresh air and enjoy the Mexican marketplace.
Service: Quick and accommodating, the guys behind the bar of La Cava Del Tequila were more than happy to fulfill special requests, arrange seating, make suggestions, and so on. If you are overwhelmed with the drink menu and aren’t sure what to order, ask these guys and they will be more than happy to make recommendations you are sure to love.
Tips: Bring friends and enjoy La Cava Del Tequila as a group! While it is a small venue, the close quarters and good drinks can make memories you’ll remember forever. And when you’re done, don’t forget to join The Three Caballeros on a nice relaxing boat ride throughout Mexico!
