Service, food, ambiance... all combined make it a must while in Merida. Had cochinita, hand made tortillas and lime soup, beyond amazing. So fresh & traditional you can taste the love in it.

Excellent restaurant in Merida to try the typical food from Yucatan. Try any of the local options in the menu. Pork are the best. Nice service too. Prices are ok.
