There is no printed or posted menu. The first time we went in I thought we were overcharged but I wasn't sure. The second time we went in I hung back and listed as the server told a local couple the prices. Then I ordered...More

... but since I don't like fish I can't comment. Four of us went for lunch. The menu is very limited: fish, shrimp, lobster, or pork tacos. That's it. I had pork, the others had shrimp or lobster. Lettuce and tomato were fresh and the...More

This tiny "restaurant" with maybe 6 or 7 tables is a good place to go for fresh, no nonsense fish tacos. It's not flashy, definitely not touristy and the owner/staff almost certainly don't speak Spanish. But when we went, and half the tables were already...More

This place is a tiny insignificant looking restaurant with a terriffic reputation for probably the best Yucatecan food you will ever taste. One of the Presidents of Mexico used to send a jet to collect food from here and fly it to Mexico City, it is that good. The most superb tacos you have ever tasted, at a cost of under £5 per person with beers. Typical Yucatecan ambience, friendly waiter, magnificent food. Ask any Meridan. :-)
