“Great setting and service, food good but nothing more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

From the reviews I was expecting extraordinary. I got just good.

We asked for our arrachera steak rare "rojo" we got well done. We returned it and it came back pink. It was tasty and well presented but not rare.

3 of our 6 Tequila shrimps were also overdone, not rubbery but not tender.

The salad and its dressing was delicious. The reataurant and service were a delight and made up for the food quality.

I just expected more...maybe because we went for lunch???

“Yucatan elegance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

A class act by any standard. The Cream of Poblano is outstanding as was the Beet Salad. My Breast of Duck was a bit chewy but cooked perfectly. I had gone for the Sesame Tuna but unfortunately it had sold out. Service was a bit slow even though it was not a busy night. But the Mojitas were cold and perfect and in surroundings such as these, no need to hurry. If you are looking for fine dining, with upscale Yucatan cuisine, don't miss hacienda Xcanatun.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

this great place has a lot to give you in this amazing old city. Hard to find but real good food. we were looking yucatan food and we had it, with great ambient and very good service. The desserts was quite decadent style, but we enjoy our visit.

“Outstanding in every respect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013 via mobile

On a beautiful Saturday in January we decided to leave El Centro of Merida and take a cab north (150 pesos) for lunch. What a good idea. The hacienda is an oasis of beauty surrounded by a desert of poverty. We had our choice of sitting inside with AC or outside with the breath-taking views of the grounds, trees, birds and gardens. The menu is large and varied, with all items in both Spanish and English, with emphasis on traditional yucatecan cuisine, which was what we were after. The highlights: grouper ceviche with avocado was sweet and delicate; the sopa de Lima, an outstanding combination of lime, chicken broth, chicken, bits of tortilla and herbs, unlike anything I'd ever tasted before. Don't miss the salbutes, crisp tortillas with chicken, lettuce, onions and some hearty, spicy sauce.......Beet salad......hanger steak......crispy shrimp over pasta with peppers.
The beer very cold; the margaritas were tangy; the service impeccable and we spent 2-1/2 hours enjoying a world class meal. We even debated getting a room, taking a nap and then staying for dinner. The food and setting are over the top!
