We enjoyed traditional regional dishes carried off with remarkable flare, set in a lovely garden setting with a beautiful fountain! The food was delicious with wonderful flavorful contrasts. The staff was delighful and the service top notch. Price was moderate.

Wow - what a fantastic restaurant. The service was 5 stars. The building is amazing and nothing like we have at home in Australia. They have a fantastic menu which will suit anyone's needs. The food was fresh and tasty and good high quality servings. Highly recommend a visit.

I'm surprised that this place has good ratings, so surprised i'm actually begining to doubt about Tripadvisor. The only remarkable thing here, is the building. Really nice. But food is made with no love. It's the way i find to describe it. I won't go into details, my best example is the dish called "molletes" which I usually love to... More

Never been here before and never tried comida Yucateca before, only cochinita pibil a couple of times. We ordered a plate which serves cochinita, lomitos, papadzules, salbutes and panuchos and ordered a plate of poc-chuc, a winner combination!

Came here as a group of 10, we were tired and hungry after a morning at Chichen Itsa and Ik Kil. We were seated straight away and the staff were amazingly polite and helpful. We all ordered starter and main and were blown away by the food. It was absolutely incredible, the taste, the freshness and the sheer amount was... More

We enjoyed an interesting dinner at this restaurant. Reviews within our group varied. My meal was excellent. I had my favourite stuffed cheese dish, a Yucatecan specialty. The sampler appetizer platter included salbutes, panuches etc and was excellent for sharing. It is a beautiful location. Service is good but it was not attentive. It was very busy though.

Located in hotel in this very non-touristy town. Actually felt like real Mexico. Good food, extensive menu, reasonable prices. Abuelita making fresh tortillas.

I ate here two times during my stay in Valladolid, I came the second time not very convinced but decided to give it a second chance. I found a very average Mexican restaurant, the food was good but nothing special, service was good but the prices were very high. I ask for a water glass that costed 30 Mexican pesos... More
