Fun restaurant with good food. Ladies dancing (some solo) with the music of a live marimba. It happened to to secretaries day and there were several celebratory parties. Service was good; food was really good. Nice fresh tortillas.

The restaurant is safe for people who aren't locals as far as how safe the food is. I had a salad here and it was very yummy. Licuados were also good. Nice atmosphere, had a little band in there while we ate.

I definitely recommend this restaurant, the food is delicious, great service and atmosphere! You have to try Kack-ik, Suban-ik, the beef is a great one, and the desserts like platanos en mole!
