We were in Valladolid for only a few nights so wanted to hit the best restaurants. There were only two places that had top reviews and reputation, and this was one of them. After a short 25 pesos taxi ride from the central plaza (I could have done the 15 min walk if I hadn't been trekking round ruins all... More

Wonderful restaurant with very tasty food. Traditional Yucatan dishes were excellent! Located on a charming street. Truly delightful. Amazing value for the money.

Very nice patio setting, with gourmet meals. We enjoyed the beet salad, my wife the chicken, and I the octopus.

Located right next to the San Bernardino Convent. Everything from the setting to the service to the presentation and the taste of the food was top rate. Really nice experience. Was tempted by the seafood items on the menu but ended up ordering the vegetarian Dzotobichay and absolutely not-vegetarian Conchinita Pibil as our main courses with starters of sopa de... More

This place is not a budget restaurant, and it does not pretend to be. I normally like to eat mostly at budget locations when traveling, but I thought I would try this place too. The service was outstanding, and the staff made excellent recommendations. Everyone was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. It was a nice place to splurge on... More

A bit of a walk from the town square, but worth the extra steps. Felt like a posh restaurant for being in Valladolid, but we felt very welcomed. We were the first guests to arrive so initially felt a bit stiff with only us and five waiters in the garden. Needless to say, very attentative service, also after the place... More

We had read such great reviews about this restaurant and we were looking forward to dine here our only night in Valladolid. Our food was just average (chicken with mash, pulled pork and Mexican sausages) to a fairly high price. The worst part was that the person who ate the sausages got food poisoned and spent the whole night throwing... More

Dirested by reviews on TA, we went to this restaurant and we enjoyed it. The scenery was perfect and the service very good. A wide choise of food and all we took was good. Only the typical dish with the melted cheese (forgot the name) was a bit disappointing. The cocktails we took were very good. The icecream we took... More

I echo what another reviewer said - I can't believe this restaurant is not #1. It was truly one of the best meals I have had in my life. I got the Tikin Xic (snapper) and it was one of the most succulent and perfectly-prepared fish dishes I have had in my life. The service was excellent and so were... More

After visiting the convent next door, we stopped at this taberna/restaurant for a drink. What a lovely setting to enjoy drinks with friends. The staff were very friendly and happy to share a laugh. Very clean washroom facilities. Cute restaurant. Definitely will be going back to enjoy a meal.
