Nice little place to go. The owners Belinda and Trevor are very friendly and quite knowledgeable about this quiet area of the Yucatan. Food is very good and the atmosphere very friendly and comfortable. would have rated it higher, but all the food does not come out together. When we stay in Chelem we eat there often.

Thanks for taking the time to review Tacomaya. There are times where our food will not always be delivered to the table at the same time. This is due to the fact our meals are prepared to order and we do not have a big line kitchen as in larger centers. We want meals to go out hot and fresh... More

We tried this place for lunch. As most reviews mentioned this is the gringo place to go. We tried the Cubano sandwich and the original fish taco.

I have been in Chelem 3 days and eaten here twice and will return. The food is very good and plentiful. The bacon is so good and cooked to perfection. The fish tacos were so fresh and the toppings are scrumptious. Order a pitcher of lemonade you won't be sorry. The owners are very friendly and seem to know everyone.

Quality of food quite high, friendly service. Oriented towards gringos -- english-only menus, french toast for breakfast, etc. The most mexican thing on the menu for breakfast is a breakfast burrito, which is about as Yucatecan as I am. You will love it if you want a taste of the US / Tex-Mex , or are perhaps frustrated trying to... More
