Our full-service restaurant serves Mexican, European, Indian and British cuisine and well-known in the peninsula. Dinners are cooked slowly to keep in all the flavours. Linen table cloths, cotton napkins, candles, good china and wineglasses decorate your table. Many of our items are vegetarian. We also have daily specials and on request prepare special dietary dishes. Two of the prime concerns of international travelers are pure water and safe food. Our kitchen, pantry, and auxiliary areas are spacious and very clean; we use purified water for all our cooking. We can also provide packed breakfasts and/or lunches on request to make your daytime travel more convenient. If you’re going to spend the day at Calakmul, please place your order the night before to get an early start! Our bar is the focal point of guests' interactions before and after their adventures at Calakmul, the Rio Bec and the Biosphere.
