As part of a Yucatan tour we visited this restaurant on the 8th Nov. We were the only customers in at lunch, and no doubt as part of the tour, had a limited choice of menu, fair enough if that's the plan. However, we ordered, and luke warm soup appeared closely followed by cold main course, which could best be... More

They do not charge something like that in other restaurants in Merida. We payed with credit card so we hope that they are not manipulate something with our bill after...we will see... Service...

When you arrive to the restaurant, be sure not to sit near an air conditioned machine. All the machines are set at the maximum so you suffer because of it. On the other hand, food (regional cuisine) is very good. If you are in the neighbourhood you should visit this place.

If you can not trust to get an honest bill then can you trust the food? I've thought about this and I say NO.

Very nice atmosphere, food is good. Try queso relleno is excellent. Is Gouda cheese with ground meat condiments and gravy made out of flour. Poc chuc is very good as well. Sopa the Lima is very good. For dessert flan napolitano the best.

We had walked past this restaurant on the way to the main square and noticed it was never very busy. Still, one day at noon, we decided to try it. Again, there were very few clients. We were greeted at the door by a lovely lady dressed in traditional colonial Yucatecan dress (huipile,etc.) and shown to our table. The plastic... More

The staff is very friendly, the atmosphere is charming, but the food is terrible. With so many wonderful places to eat, and such delicious food all about Merida, don't waste your time or money on this place! We ordered two chaya drinks, two entrees, and one dessert and the bill came to $681 pesos, not including the tip! That is... More
