Excellent meal with live folkloric dancing on Sunday afternoons.

This is a lovely restaurant above the Cenote Zacl. If you eat there, you don't have to pay admission to the Cenote. We had shrimp ceviche which was very fresh and good. A large serving was more than enough for two people. We probably could have split a small one.

We think the main reason to eat here is the view of the cenote and sitting under the large palapa structure. The food is fine with many local dishes.

We did not like the food. We both had the chicken fillet, and it was very greasy and had an odd flavour. Must say, though, that perhaps the typical Mexican food might have been okay.The waiter said everything we asked about was very hot. On the plus side, there was a lovely view down into the cenote, and we did... More

We also had a drink (about the same price or less than admission) and visited the cenote for free. The restaurant was quiet around 4pm when we went and the waiters offered us some snacks for free while we enjoyed our beers and the view. We did not go into the water, just walked around. There were very few people... More

We visited this restaurant after a recommendation from a lady in the tourist office and we were not dissapointed. This was our first full day in Mexico and had not yet tried proper Mexican food - so this was our first taster and it happened to actually be some of the best Mexican Food we had in our whole two...

Went for a swim with the cat fish here on a gif day! It was quite quiet, really beautiful. Water isn't too cold; quite a magical spot to be in the middle of traffic filled streets !

This restaurant is a giant palapa overlooking a giant cenote. The service is pleasant, the food is tasty and the unexpected entertainment was delightful. It overlooks a huge cenote which is surrounded by all sorts of trees and vines. It was a great experience.

From the kind man who took us in to the fish who nibble at your toes, this place was so cool. Really great to cool off on a hot day. It is in the middle of a fairly large city and super clean and pretty magnificent.. Very reasonable entrance fee..

This had the lowest entry fee of the cenotes we visited (30 pesos). It was easy walk from historical center/plaza of town. The restaurant overlooking the cenote was fine. My daughter loved the jumping that was close to 30 ft drop. I enjoyed the little fish that liked nibbling my feet. And the big lizards were cool. I great Cenote... More
