We loved the atmosphere. It was colorful and the staff was very helpful with the menu selection. The Turkey Lime Soup was delicious and my husband enjoyed the pork.

There are actually two locations. One on the corner that is a large indoor space. It was really busy and had lots of families, but the service was good and the food was very fresh.

Very good food, homemade and delicious. The staff is very nice, extremely efficient, they serve typical Yucatán food of very good quality. The price is more than right.

You can tell. Simply the best yucatecan food in Merida. Try Chaya water at anytime. Local's best choice. Ideal for families.
