“Yucatecan food in Cuernavaca”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

This is apparently a very popular place among the locals, and the food showed why. We had a late breakfast, which was prepared to order and was very tasty. The coffee was good too. This is definitely the kind of place you could enjoy on a regular basis if you lived nearby, for an everyday breakfast or lunch experience.

“Deliciously expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

The food was absolutely delicious! The prices are expensive so don't expect economic dining which can be reflected by its "high society" clientele. Be aware as the waiter will offer you "frijolitos" (beans) and other sides to bump up the bill while you think they come included. Other high end restaurants usually bring you snacks while you wait but here they don't. Highly recommended if you want to burn some cash or impress someone!

“The best yucatecan food in Cuernavaca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

Having a yucatecan father, I can tell you several dishes reminded me of eating at my grandmother´s house!

Good service also. I strongly recommend it.

“Fantastic Food and Lovely Attire”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

I did not really notice this place as we drove by but family took us there for a dinner and I am so glad they did. The food is outstanding and the staff is great. The ladies look beautiful in their attire of lace and embroidery and the atmosphere is comfortable and nicely decorated. The staff is very efficient and helpful and quick to bring you whatever you ask for. I look forward to a return visit!

“Authentic Yucateca cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Though a bit noisy and stripped of anything resembling decor, this no-frills restaurant serves authentic Yucateca cuisine including Cochinita Pibil and an excellent green Pipian sauce on chicken. The wait-service, though over-staffed, is often confused and chaotic. It should also be noted that drinks - including water and squash - are extremely over-priced; be warned!
