This is the most well-known traditional Yucatán cuisine establishment in the city, that has been around for many years. More recently the quality has suffered a little, since it attracts large groups for meals and they cannot keep up with the necessary quality that they used to have in the past. However items worth trying are the "papatzules" (rolled tacos... More

I had the black turkey dish, and the supa de lima. It was very good. It was nicely priced as well. The service was good and it had free wifi

Slow but nice service. Traditional pork meals were ok / good. For dessert the "poor cowboy something" (lost in translation) was delicious. Had it other places, but it this was the best. Limited bar. Reasonable prices.

We ate here twice, and everyone else appeared to be local. The food was very good and they had a good crowd for lunch. I wouldn't recommend Los Almendros for dinner as there were not many patrons and we felt rushed by the wait staff. Not much atmosphere but I'd recommend it for lunch - it's a nice walk from... More

Definitly, yes, this is a traditional and excelent mayan-yucatecan food restaurant. Prices are fair, the ambiance is very typical and the staff frienly. Menu is big but not to miss Cochinita Pibil, Panuchos or the Poc-Chuc. Try the papaya dessert at the end.

The restaurant is a short walk from the Zocalo down Av 59 @ Av 60 on a beautiful square. The sopa de lima is not to be missed. Cochinita pibil is a delicious yucatan specialty. Try pavo, turkey. It is a brightly lit traditional space with excellent food and service.

I only had dessert and a few drinks here (which the flan was excellent) however, we watching plates of steaming and sizzling meats and tacos and delicious smelling foods that I would definitely eat here the next time I am in town. It was very busy on a Friday afternoon, filled with locals only.

Good service, lots of dishes from Yucatan typical food. If you are close to Paseo Montejo you need to take a taxi to get there.
