Only cash and its not cheap compared to most places in Tulum, take enough cash to eat all the courses, food is amazing and you will be disappointed if your money restricts your choices.

Our dishes are prepares meticulusly as our grandma used to make it. We choose the best ingredients to prepare genuine "mole" sauce in a metate stone (like from prehispanic times), to make sure get to the traditional recipes. Making our mermelade, bread, butter and many more. The best culinary experience in the autentic traditional mexican cuisine.
