I have never been treated so rudely by a waitress. Just walked up to the table and stood there with a pen ready to write. She had a scowl on her face the entire time. We will never go back. Cancun's service is MUCH better.

The atmosphere here is as in most Mexican restaurants, charmingly authentic and pleasant. The wait staff was excellent, friendly but not overbearing. The food was very tasty although the rice was so dry I wondered if it was left over from the previous night.
