I enjoy the typical Mayan dishes so much here that I keep coming back. I enjoy the homemade tortillas as well. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The staff treats you with respect and are attentive.

Just a few blocks away from Plaza Grande you will find this authentic Yucatec restaurant. It is popular with tourists, but also many locals eat here because the food is authentic and very tasty.
