We are an operator of restaurants we admire the culture, customs and this land, its people and their way of being. In our restaurant you can enjoy genuine dishes, an interesting atmosphere and service with typical warmth of our race. In addition to the flavor of these exotic lands, home to one of the most amazing civilizations of mankind, that for more than 10,000 years ago populate this region and hunting, gathering and agriculture learned to survive giving rise to a unique cuisine that many years later with the influence and contributions of conquerors modern cuisine that is admired is created. We work with the emerging recipes "vox populi" ie the housewives, from every corner of the peninsula, from which arise the different dishes with different ingredients and flavors.

Yukatan recipes that will surprise you!

Who knew turkey was used in so many ways? Great spices, attentive staff and dishes that will linger on your palate.

We stayed in Cancun centro and this was a great restaurant to taste Yucatanean cuisine without paying exhorbitant touristy prices.

You will enjoy your time at Labna restaurant. The service is excellent as is the atmosphere. The restaurant offers many Yucatan specialties and is quite enjoyable. The prices are reasonable and I believe you will not regret trying this restaurant while in downtown Cancun.

I went on a mission to find a place that served this plus other authentic Yucatan foods. After getting lost and driving for about an hour through Cancun I ended up here. I was craving a Yucatan feast and boy... More

Very close to Parque las Palapas (Palapas Park) if you need a landmark for bus/taxi. The same owner as La Habichuela which is the more famous fusion restaurant. However, we liked the food better at Labna, which serves Yucatan food. The Sopa de Lima is the bomb. Wifey and I kept going back for second and third helpings. The waiters... More
