Went with 4 friends for dinner and we tried their salad, ice cream, chocolate dessert and fish. We were very disappointed with the food, not tasty, not fresh and expensive. Go away, there are much better places to go for a nice lunch or dinner.

This restaurant is located right on the main square. It is very well run with experienced waiters and the food is very good. They keep it very clean too.

Went to this restaurant, because it was close to where I was staying, & the previous OK reviews on trip advisor. Only 3 tables occupied. Waiter had poor grasp of english(not his fault) but item photos on menus not what food looked like when delivered....More

The "Camarones al coco" tasted like soap. My gf couldn't eat all. My tacos weren't good at all either. Just avoid this place, the first time we were so disappointed in Yucatan !
