We had not been here in years and normally don't eat in hotel zone because most are over priced. We were pleasantly surprised by a good meal at a fair price.

Very good Mexican cuisine: food was authentic, service was great, very friendly staff, nice ambience, full bar, amazing "margarita's"! Choose the porch area to enjoy the lagoon view. If you are looking for a fun and authentic Mexican experience, this is the place. Great experience.

Delicious molcajete, great service! Although server tried to interest us in the most expensive tequila on the menu, we resisted his "suggestion" and enjoyed the complementary cocktail from a hotel- provided coupon. The restaurant prepares items such as guacamole and flambé dishes at tableside. We liked this place so much we'll likely eat there twice in one trip!

I love this place and go here every year when I come to Cancun. I always get the majote dish that come in a volcano bowl. It is super good. Sit on the porch and enjoy the great view of the lagoon.

Another late evening dinner after exploring this beautiful Yucatan peninsula. Made to feel at home. At first the mariachi band was grating to my hungry nerves but as soon as the drinks and appetizers arrives I was totally into it. We had the molcajete which is served in volcanic rock bowls. I had the beef and the wife had the... More

Had dinner here last week with good friends. We had heard great things about this place. We got a wonderful table outside. Our servers were wonderful. The Margaritas were the best we have ever had. Got some chips and queso. They were decent but nothing outstanding. Our dinners were good. Once the Mariachi band started so did the fun. Looking... More

This is an outstanding place not too far from the hotel zone. It is worth the taxi ride! The food and service are outstanding! You must do a tequila tasting - very fun and delicious!

On recommendation of Hotel, listed this restaurant. Party of 6 was well disappointed in the quality of the food. Overall atmosphere included a band going from table to table....if you don't up front, they will play and remain at your table until you tip them to leave. Sadly a mild hint to leave doesn't work. Be direct upfront. Food overall... More
