If you are a foreginer you will be impressed. If you are a Mexican national also! Staff is very friendly and try to explain the dishes if you are not familiar. It is a buffet where drinks are not included neither desserts. They also own a brazilian steak house which is next door. Waitress Sugeydi was amazing with her charm.... More

We arrived an early Thursday evening and were surprised that they were about to close already. We had free buffet and some tacos which were prepared à la minute at our table side. Food was typical Mexican and service was friendly and efficient. Not really a gourmet restaurant but correct dishes and savory tastes. Only recommendable during daytimes.

This is typical food from Tabasco. I love it. I am mexican who lived 7 years abroad in different countries. The first place I ate when I came back after 7 years it was this place. The "platanitos con queso y crema" are delicious. It's a buffet with typical food from here, you won't regret it.

Really nice food and ambient. The perfect place for a tourist. Buffet and service is excellent. They have a show of ladies and gents with their typical outfit and songs. They also sing a song from any tourists origin. Great!! Value for money! Around £12 buffet all inclusive with refill drinks. Taste the tabasquen chocolate... its amazing!!

We were here for lunch and got hooked by the buffet which was very attractive and extensive, there are also a pair of food carts, one of broth and one of tacos, "barbacoa" and "cohinita pibil", the best part for us were the tacos, which we had almost as an afterthought and were truly delicious The service was very good

A very nice restaurant with traditional southern food. An interesting concept where they combine food brought to your table and a buffet set-up, a high end – high quality version of the alll you can eat model. The restaurant seems to be favoured by the locals and it is located in a nice neighborhood in an old Mexican Hacienda with... More

The place is incredible there is nothing you can improve, the ambient, decorations and the food is so Mexican, so tasty, delicious. This is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been, and saying this as Mexican is so much.

A generally decent buffet, consisting of a few appetisers served at your table followed by a walk-up main course selection. Overall food quality was good, though not excellent. We declined to try the vegetable and salad bar, which was a little too infested with flies for our liking. Wine-drinkers may be slightly disappointed.

We visited here whilst on our business trip. The restaurant serves tasters of Mexican cuisine in a fresh buffet. The restaurant staff are very welcoming and the waitresses are dressed in traditional Tabasco dresses. The restaurant decor is very unique in a Spanish style with garden patio for outdoor eating and indoors is a very well decorated authentic Mexican looking... More
