Most popular resturant in Chelem. The food is great and there's lots of it! You'll never walk away hungry. The atmosphere and owners are very welcoming. People from afar just to enjoy the food.

We stopped for lunch. Original recipe and blackened fish tacos were outstanding. Very large portions. Impeccable freshness. Just Wow !

Excellent food, friendly, good service; the original fish tacos were the best as well as the blackend fish taco. We liked that gringos and local Yucatecans could mingle and were welcome.

We've has breakfast here twice and loved it both times. Belinda and Trevor do an amazing job! I had the chorizo and eggs the first time and the breakfast burrito the second time. Both were delicious. I'd love to try lunch and may have to go back just for that!

We have been hear several times and for some reason keep ordering the fish taco's. Beacuse the fish tacos are so good we will try other things eventually. Just go and try the fish tacos. The service is excellent and fast and the owners are great Canadians. They close early in the afternoon so get there early
