We've been going to this restaurant for years and it remains one of our Cancun favorite's. Cadillac Margaritas are perfecto! If you want Mexican food, this is your place. The guacamole is made fresh table side and is delectable. We love the grilled cheese, shrimp quesadillas, & tacos as appetizers if you want to make that your meal. Also their... More

We came here with the recommendation of Marriott’s concierge when we asked them what's the best Mexican restaurant in Cancun and we were not disappointed. Easy access even with the bus since the station to get off the bus is the same as the Kukulcan Plaza shopping Mall. The first impression you have entering the restaurant is “I’m in Mexico”... More

The ambiance is nice as well as the service. However the food needed more seasoning, it was bland. My husband's steak fajitas was tough. I thought the prices were a little high. We will not return.

The food is really really good and the wait staff is impeccable. The mariachi band was an enjoyable bonus to our dinner. There is a wide range of foods that even children will like.

In a sea of American chain restaurants in the hotel zone, this one stands out. Lavishly decorated in Spanish Colonial style with beautiful tile and iron work, we suddenly felt we were once again in Mexico. We dined on the terrace which overlooks the water below, and at one point there was a large iguana nearby on a rock just... More

The restaurant is in the hotel zone and as a result caterers very specifically to tourists. The food while good is fairly standard Mexican fare. Our waiter was attentive. I ordered the prawns which were prepare table-side which was kind of fun. The tequila menu is not to be missed. They have several high-end tequila's that are well worth giving... More

The food was great, the service was great. Unfortunately there is a photographer that ruined the nigh. Charged $40 for a photo and a bottle of cheap tequila. It is not part of the restaurant, I don't know why they let him in. It was the worst experience, I felt robbed. It is shame.
