We were in Chetumal for the day and stopped here for a late lunch. We tried the empanadas and the aracherra steak, and everything was excellent. Steak was juicy and perfectly marinated! Service was good, and it was a nice place near the waterfront.

Small Place but excellent food. Arrachera (Grilled Steak of 600 gms) for 22 USD one can devour. Meat was succulent and juicy, they do a fantastic job with it. This must be the third or fourth visit, inviting!!!
