In our restaurant you can enjoy genuine dishes, an interesting atmosphere and service with typical warmth of our race.

We asked our taxi driver to take us somewhere we could get authentic Mayan food, so he drove us to this interesting place called Labna. When we arrived we were the only 4 people in the place and the manager treated us like we were royalty. Everything was incredible from the appetizers to the Mayan liquor after dinner drink. We...

When you are looking for a restaurant that offers quiet authentic ambiance, excellent food, and attentive service in Cancun, this is the place! We enjoyed two delicious meals at Labna. The menu focuses on the regional cuisine of the Maya culture, the service from Gabriel and his staff is quiet old world charm. We highly recommend Labna, and will be... More

The lime soup and shredded pork dinner are the best! The margarita is the margarita that ALL margaritas will be judged by! Dinner for two with cocktails and desert came to $43.00. The Mayan coffee and bananas flambé (made table side) were perfect. Excellent presentation of both table side.

The food at Labna is special because it's regional Yucatecan food, but it's exceptional because it's artful cuisine - the cooking of a master chef. The restaurant itself is comfortable and attractive, reflecting the indigenous style (and beside a delightful city park), and the waiters on both of our visits were welcoming and appreciative. If you appreciative fine cuisine at... More

We came to Cancún only to get our flight back to México City. Cancún is a copycat of Miami or Barra da Tijuca in RIo de Janeiro: they all commited the same crime of destroying an incredible landscape by building anti-urban spaces (meaning segregated spaces for cars and rich people). But we spotted a real place in this city, and... More

Will return to this place over and over again. The decor is very nice, the staff very professional and friendly. Food was authentic mexican and delicious. If you want to change from chains, tex-mex, faux-mex and bad/noisy places go to Labna. Apettizer and entree will cost you a little less than $20 US. Well worthed. A jewel in Downtown Cancun.

Take the bus to downtown Cancun to Jardin Las palapas, walk a few blocks to Labna. Staff is great and the food is to die for. They have fish, and meat dishes cooked following strict traditional recipes, if you really know about international cuisine you will appreciate this simple and cozy restaurant.

We arrived around noon, a bit early for the locals. Had the place to our selves. Recommended by our shuttle driver. The Lime soup was as good as it gets. The Turkey dish was savory and the pork delicious. A slice of A candied and dried papaya afterward was a very special treat. Excellent service. Just steps from Hotel Mallorca.

The food was really amazing with authentic Yucatecan and Mexican dishes. My husband lived in Mexico for over 6 years and really liked the Chicken in Mole Sauce. I enjoyed the Lime Soup and a delicious fish dish. The atmosphere was lovely as were the people working in the restaurant. Near by was the Zocalo with a large fair and... More

We are an operator of restaurants we admire the culture, customs and this land, its people and their way of being.

In addition to the flavor of these exotic lands, home to one of the most amazing civilizations of mankind, that for more than 10,000 years ago populate this region and hunting, gathering and agriculture learned to survive giving rise to a unique cuisine that many years later with the influence and contributions of conquerors modern cuisine that is admired is created.
