Food and drink was good but not the cheapest. However, the man who runs it, Guermo, is a great resource to explore the area or take any tours. He is very professional and not pushy at all. Would recommend going for dinner and a drink just to talk to him.

We ordered baby back ribs and lobster. Lobster is very hard (a bit chewy) and the rib is average. The food is on the average side.

We were recently in San Ignacio for two weeks and had the pleasure of eating at Erva's restaurant multiple times. Erva and her son run the restaurant and do all the prep and cooking themselves. The service is excellent and Guermo the host makes sure everyone is looked after. The home-style food is not 'fancy' but is reliably outstanding and... More

Erva's is a local favourite and when we visited I can see why. We ordered the coconut baked lobster tail (and you get 2 big tails, quite a big portion!) as well as the Chaya (which is like a Mayan spinachy garlicky dish with plantain chips) and Vegetable Rice. Definitely check out their specials board as this changes regularly. Note... More

Perhaps they were swamped with people dining, but I think it was probably almost a half hour before we ordered and then again as long to get our food. Food was decent, but it sort of shot our evening.

We ordered a pizza from Ervas to our hotel, Kidas resort. It was amazing! It was the special. And had shrimp and lots of veggies! My husband and I were both impressed. We dined in the next night. I had a seafood curry dish which was excellent. My husband forgets what he had but he remembers enjoying it. It's a... More

As mentioned by some of the other reviewers, while the food was really delicious, don't go there if you're very hungry or want attentive waiters. Also, it's hard to find the place if they're not open - we went there one night and walked right by it. Only after asking a few sets of people, and going on the night... More
