My son and I went to this restaurant not knowing anything about it. We did some groceries at Walmart and we noticed it. This restaurant is not an expensive one. When we entered, lots of families were eating there. The menu is very good and...More

Horrible service, over 30 mins waiting and nothing not even an apology for the wait, and I'm just waiting for a refill. If you can avoid this place, just go to Vips or Sanborn if you're looking for this type of restaurant, or better yet...More

Good restaurant. The food was also good. We loved the lemonade. The only one problem was there was only one server who could understand little english

This indoor air conditioned restaurant was right next to Walmart's parking lot in Cancun downtown. They offer Mexican food and others. Menu was in English and Spanish. The place was clean, coffee was great and lots of varieties. Price was inexpensive around 300 pesos for full dinner plus appetizer plus drinks excl tips for 2 people. Location was definitely convenient just walking distance from Walmart.
