Probably our most amazing meal of our entire trip. It's a little more expensive than your regular spot in Mexico but worth it a thousand times. The cochinita was to die for and the space they have is beautiful.

Nice setting and good help and food. About twice as expensive as elsewhere. I don't need to repeat that experience.

This place was recommended to us and we were not sorry! The food was all really good, lots of typical dishes from the area that are great! Service was great, but we were also there at off hours. Nice setting too! Highly recommend trying this place!

Stupendous food. The "Cream of Mayan Greens" is wonderful and the "Maya Pork Filets" too. Great service and very good price.

Expect exotic gourmet names on the menu, expensive prices for lame food. Frozen vegetables, deep fried food, no bread or anything while you wait at least 40 min for your food. I returned my food and my son's food . Chicken was raw! My veggies were frozen and plain! I cannot recomend this. That's the risk of trying new places.... More

We stopped for a vegetarian lunch on our way to tour the nearby convent. The setting was lovely. The service was good, not overly attentive but we didn't need that. :) The food was very good and there were many vegetarian options for a relatively reasonable price. We tried the grilled watermelon, the stuffed squash, and another dish whose name... More

It would be a shame to miss eating here if you're in Valladolid. Tentacion de Valladolid is simple, but not like anything i've had. I ate there alone, but would be a nice place for a date. Three courses for $25-$35 usd.

My husband and I were lucky enough to eat here while on a culinary and cultural tour. Not only was the food unbelievably delicious but it was by far some of the most exquisitely, beautifully plated food I've ever had the pleasure to encounter! No matter what else you may order, do not miss the grilled watermelon starter--it is truly... More
