Found this while trying to escape the pushy sellers! Loved the chicken and vegetable tacos. Great prices and nice cold beers. They even have little stands next to each table for your bags - brilliant! Make your way here.

We went with friends for a celebration dinner, we had never eaten here before, and were very pleased! The hostess and wait staff is amazing, and seemed to anticipate our every need! We had plenty of bread made available, constantly checking on us! The food was amazing! We had lobster, surf/turf, and ribs, it was all very, very good! Also... More

We had breakfast here. Everything, we had, was just delicious. Waffle with Nutella and banana; breakfast burrito and migas - GREAT! The cappuccino was amazing and the orange juice, too. Fast and nice service. Perfect start into our day!

We walked in and 2 servers stopped by and said thank you so much for dining with us tonight. When does anyone ever say that? We thought that was awesome. They continued to provide excellent service. The margaritas were delicious. My husband had the mayan fish and loved it. They have many options for vegetarians also. There are 2 locations... More

We spped in regularly for breakfast when we stayed in PDC nearby. Like it so much, I bought a coffee cup from them to remember them by! We walked by frequently at all hours of the day and night and they were always busy so lunch and diner must be pretty good too. Reasonable price and good Mexican food.

Order the Fresh Fish Fillet "Mayan Style". It is exquisite. The fish is served on a bed of mashed plantain with black recado sauce, which is made from blackened habanero peppers. But don't be put off; it's not a scorcher. The full flavor of the pepper without the heat does not overpower but accentuates the plantain and white fish. A... More

We begin our day with breakfast here and the food, service and atmosphere can't be beat. Got back into town late one night and decided to go there for a late night dinner. They out did themselves. Truly the attention, presentation, flavors and service are superb. Abraham was our waiter and all are great.

The menu is basic. The orange juice is watered down. The food has taste but does't move you with the rise of the sun. Its a hotel kickback resteraunt that has elitist forms of who can order off what menu. At your own risk.,
