A lovely restaurant tucked away in the square to the left of the monastery in Valladolid, it has a shady courtyard, with a number of tables available. When you have tired of the 'standard'' Mexican food of cochinita pibil in small tacos, wander into this...More

We drove from Akumal to spend the day in Valladolid. The colonial town is charming, with its multi-coloured buildings, and not touristy. Visited the chocolate factory and the convent. We were hungry around noon, and went to the restaurant. However, it was closed because Valladolid...More

We went there because we wanted to have a nice dinner. Most of the time we felt ignored in favour of some snobby family just because we didn't nag enough. Food was ok but expensive. Go somewhere else.

Food was good - not as spicy or varied as we would have hoped but nice, clean and tasty. Setting is amazing off the street, quiet. Great experience

We had read several reviews on Trip Advisor and other sites and were expecting an outstanding experience in authentic Yucatecan food. At best I have to say this place is simply average as is the service. The tequila glasses are about the size of a...More
