We have been enjoying dining at this lovely restaurant for many years, and especially love dining in such a delightful, tropical atmosphere. The food is usually quite tasty, they serve traditional Yucatecan dishes and we have several vegetarian options to choose from. A visit to Izamal isn't complete without a meal at Kinich!

We went here on a recommendation from a friend that grew up in Merida and loved it. Everything was great including the green Chaya juice, my very large michelada, and a dish that looked like enchiladas with hard boiled egg inside and drenched with mole.

We came here even though no one in town mentioned it was a good restaurant. We saw the sign and a place to park and stopped there. Great service, even better food, just incredible Regional Yucatecan food. It was so good and so many options tha we came back the next day before leaving this amazing town. I do not... More

Last Wednesday we arrived to the restaurant; the place is wide, looks very traditional. Waitresses use typical dresses. The restaurant offers regional food; the flavour is unique. You may order a wide variety. We tried 4 different, all of them were delicious!!

Our hotel recommended this restaurant as being the best in town. Food was based around Mayan recipes, however watch for the peppers. Most of the food was very spicey. I had the deer meat and it was a very good, mild dish. The prices were rather high compared to what you paid at other smaller places.

We had lunch here, the setup of this restaurant is quite big. They have done a lot to keep you cool and to keep the flying friends away. The food is decent, not really great. Service is not that great, constantly took quiet some time to get the attention of the waiters.

This is a beautiful restaurant and I loved the artificial rainfall to keep us cool and keep mosquitoes away so that we could eat outside under an authentic thatched Mayan roof structure. The food was authentic and service was friendly and efficient.

We live in Izamal, and often bring our visiting friends to eat in this very nice restaurant. We are vegetarian, and there are several tasty options available. The service is always good, and the atmosphere is tropical and beautiful.

This is the nicest restaurant in a poor town. This restaurant certainly makes its living catering to tour buses but it was clean, the service was good and the food was decent. The tour arranged the lunch so everyone was served the same dishes said to be typical Mayan food. I am not sure what they are capable of if... More

Our tour guide recommended this. We were on a private tour and relied on his knowledge. However, the lunch wasn't as nice as expected and I think overpriced. All the tour guides sit together and order from a different menu. I ordered rice and plantain that was listed under soup. It was simply rice with sliced plantains around the side.... More
