Breakfast buffet

I recommend Breakfast buffet.. try Tamales de Chipilin, ask for tostones (no mature bananna fried), fried beans, hot chocolate, pitahaya juice, cheese empanadas, etc. After the breakfast, food can be heavy to digest...

The place is incredible there is nothing you can improve, the ambient, decorations and the food is so Mexican, so tasty, delicious. This is one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever been, and saying this as Mexican is so much.

A generally decent buffet, consisting of a few appetisers served at your table followed by a walk-up main course selection. Overall food quality was good, though not excellent. We declined to try the vegetable and salad bar, which was a little too infested with flies for our liking. Wine-drinkers may be slightly disappointed.

We visited here whilst on our business trip. The restaurant serves tasters of Mexican cuisine in a fresh buffet. The restaurant staff are very welcoming and the waitresses are dressed in traditional Tabasco dresses. The restaurant decor is very unique in a Spanish style with garden patio for outdoor eating and indoors is a very well decorated authentic Mexican looking... More

Consistently recommended to us by locals as the best restaurant for typical Tabasco dishes, our lunch there was far more than disappointing. At lunch, they serve only the buffet. The dishes I tried were barely warm. The next day, disaster hit...Montezuma's Revenge with a vengeance. It's now 9 days later and I'm still taking antibiotics. I accept part of the... More
