My friend and I ate at this restaurant tonight (Christmas Eve). The food was okay. The service was good. But apparently our waiter believed that two educated, reasonably intelligent females (one American, one Yucatecan) couldn't be trusted to calculate and leave a tip, so he took it upon himself to add it to our bill.

Just got back from one of the worst steak dinners I have ever had. I order the 600 gram Prime Rib which was 300 grams fat grizzle and bone with the rest edible, tough, chewy meat. 350 pesos of garbage!! I wouldn't feed the fat to my dog.

Nice restaurant on prolong Montejo. Not the best décor , but not the worst either. Minimalist in its decoration, not my taste , but not impossible either. Good food and good service, average wine list. Great Caesar salad prepared table side. Good empanadas and steaks. Desserts OK but not exceptional. Overall not a bad experience, but not phenomenal either. A... More

Very attentive staff. The food was excellent and very well prepared. The salads were prepared at our table as well as the Irish coffee. Cudos to our server Rene who not only served well, but did an excellent job considering the language barrier.
