It's a bit on the touristy side, and is usually pretty packed. but it is in a cool old building with high ceilings, nice details. Try some of the Mayan specialties.

Located downtown. Regional dishes served the traditional way. A mestiza cooks tortillas to be served at your table. A colonial restored house gives this restaurant the perfect atmosphere to experience Yucatan.

We loved this place! You can have all the typical food of Yucatán. We went for breakfast and lunch and all we tried was so tasty. Plus, the location and prices are perfect.

This restaurant has a good atmosphere and the staff is friendly. The food is just fine. The choches they have are good and the quality is fine, but they can take it a step more. It is really touristic!
