This restaurant was recommended to us by almost all of the local people we talked to, so my wife and I had to try it. It was a great place to have dinner. Our favorite restaurant in Cancun is La Habichuela. La Habichuela is still my favorite after eating here, but I would also highly recommend this restaurant for Mexican... More

Decent service, but at best medium quality food, mariachis, noise and more noise, humid environment. And when the mariachis rest, recordings keep the Mexican folk mood going.

Really nice place, came here to splash out on our last night. Has 2 starters and a shared combo meat dish for 2 (there were 2 of us dining). Food came out fast and the special nachos and Mexican starter were amazing though quite filling. When the main course arrived we were on the way to being very full -... More

Food here is good what I shared the mixed meat grill served on a grill plate, could have been more tender but tasted freshly cooked. Cocktails were OK tasting, but the atmosphere is what makes this place. Entertaining serving of drinks and the lively music.

LOCATION: It's located in downtown Cancun on a busy street with multiple bars and establishments. You can definitely go on a nice stroll after dinner. RESTAURANT: Upon entering you'll be greeted by the host... More

Even though Cancun offers a great variety of food, I found it somewhat difficult to find real Mexican food, so I asked and asked until someone recommended this place in downtown (yes you can take bus R-1 or R-2.) The food is just the best I have ever had and the service was astonishingly good, the drinks were fresh and... More
