We went with a large group and got the waiter's recommendation of appetizers. For a main, I had the pork pibil. I wanted to like this place more, but really I was not inspired by the food.

This is a good restaurant that serves who seen typical of the Yucatán peninsula. That's the only type of food being offered but it's perfectly prepared and presented. This is a very good restaurant of typical cuisine that is worth a visit and better than other ones available in Cancun that offer similar dishes.

This restaurant is in downtown Cancun and not in the touristy area... which is to say maybe a little sketchy part of town but my girlfriend and I walked from a nearby hotel about 10 minutes without anyone bothering us. We went for an early dinner at around 4:30 in time for the buffet. My girlfriend chose a fish from... More

Be careful with the habanero salsa or the purple onion with habanero they serve its pretty spicy for amateurs :) Entree I ordered some little corn tostadas with cochinita! Man! Those were really good! They serve them with a bit of black beans... Yum... As main dish I... More

If you want to eat real mexican food from the Yucatan Peninsula this is the place to go. It's nice and warm, nothing fancy. The service and the food are both excellent. I extremely recommend it.

I make a point to eat at Labná every time I travel to Cancún. Excelente dishes typical of the Yucstán Peninsula. Prices are very affordable. You have to take a cab, as it is in downtown Cancún, an area where the local people frequent.

Description
We are an operator of restaurants we admire the culture, customs and this land, its people and their way of being. In our restaurant you can enjoy genuine dishes, an interesting atmosphere and service with typical warmth of our race. In addition to the flavor of these exotic lands, home to one of the most amazing civilizations of mankind, that for more than 10,000 years ago populate this region and hunting, gathering and agriculture learned to survive giving rise to a unique cuisine that many years later with the influence and contributions of conquerors modern cuisine that is admired is created. We work with the emerging recipes "vox populi" ie the housewives, from every corner of the peninsula, from which arise the different dishes with different ingredients and flavors.
