After a long day of transport we arrived at this amazing and romantic place. Do not hesitate going there the food and the breakfast are very good and typical and the host is a lovely lady who know how to make their guest comfortable.

We have been to the Picked Onion many times and we are never dissappointed! The food is excellent, the menu has a good selection of dishes and they serve a variety of traditional Mexican meals and Yucatecan specialties along with salads and other international favourites. The owner Valerie is always friendly and takes the time to say hello to all... More

We ate a delicious, fresh meal at Pickled Onion as we drove back from the nearby caves (grutas) to Havienda Uxmal. The food selection was fine and generally tasted very good, with the only disappointment taste-wise being the juice which had lots of water added. Sadly the service was a bit grumpy and monosyllabic with our smiles and niceties being... More

Came twice, as looked like there were no other alternatives in St. Elena. First night very busy and it took the waiter for ever to take our order.... More

We came across this oasis on the Ruta Puuc by accident, whilst staying at the Lodge at Uxmal . What a lucky find! Had lunch here and came back the 10k for dinner rather than sit in the deserted Lodge Restaurant as we had the previous evening.

The service at this B&B was outstanding, and the food exquisite. The "Onion" is a little jewel in the Puuc hills, with delightful, comfortable casitas for lodging, gorgeous grounds and an inviting pool for those hot days. We've stayed here twice previously, and intend to come back again.

We ate here based on several recommendations from local businesses. The food was all fresh and flavourful but the food service provided by the two male servers was unprecedented. They were both fast, friendly and on top of everything during the entire meal. They set the bar high and to date it hasn't been surpassed. We thank them and management... More
