I thought this restaurant was disgusting, the food is not good at all. And they ask for tips all the time.

We stopped by here after going to Chichen-Itza. It was a good choice as it was convenient and relatively inexpensive. The food was pretty good but not too notch.

This restaurant was part of our tour to Chichen Itza. It is buffet style and the food is delicious. The waiters are very friendly and you also get to enjoy the dancers. The atmosphere is calm and welcoming.

Visited this restaurant for lunch with a small group. The food was served buffet style. Pleasant atmosphere with some local traditional dancing on stage while we ate. Hot and cold food served. Enjoyed the fish and salad and the desserts were tasty.
