Long time there, it is still the local’s and visitors choice when looking for Yucateca cuisine in Cuernavaca. Place is big and normally crowded, specially weekends. Dishes are well prepared and flavor is good. Menu has other choices for non Yucateca cuisine lovers.

I loved the food. There are some unusual menu choices, but all are wonderful. I had the venison soup and suckling pig (pulled pork) The staff are welcoming and helpful and can happily recommend this well established restaurant.
