Terrible food, unkind service, bad and really overpriced place. The worse experience. Poor menu. I would never go back.

Never again! We were the only table when we came for dinner and yet waited 75 minutes for food that never came. In the meantime two other tables had been occupied and they got their food before us. The waiter just kept repeating that he...is sorry and the food is almost there. Eventually we went to another place nearby where both food and service was great. Don’t bother going to avoid dissatisfactionMore

Uh, $10 dollars for a bowl of soup? We stopped seriously thinking about eating there at that point. Yes, it is next to a major tourist place, but they do not have to have to charge major rip off tourist prices? We drank our overpriced...beers and left. BEWARE!More

We could not eat any of the dishes. It was literally appalling. One of - if not - the worst meal of our life. Stay away by all means...

Caro y Malo Pollo al Pibil not recommended. 10% tips is mandatory. Good service, nice place but the food doesn’t worth its value. Come and have a drink!

So there we were out in the middle of the jungle staying at the lovely Lodge at Uxmal and we had dinner at the restaurant under a large palapa there. Expectations for a buffet aren't high. But guess what? This place was GREAT! We were...pleasantly surprised by the amazing food they had at their buffet - mostly Mayan dishes. Excellent Chicken Pibil, tasty empanadas, fresh tortillas, and much, much more. Eat there - don't miss it!More

The restaurant is in a palapa, but the facilities are modern. Yes, there is Mayan food - my husband loved the chicken and lime soup and liked it so much that he tried it at the next 4 or 5 restaurants he visited in other...cities in the Yucatan. I am vegetarian & in addition to what was on the menu they were willing to adjust to meet my needs. Fantastico!More

The atmosphere at the restaurant is great and the staff is very friendly but the prices are quite high when compared to what I normally pay in Mérida. However, I asked for more vegetarian dishes, they gave me some choices and I paid about US$...12 for food and juice.More

The place looked very inviting, just across from the entrance of Uxmal site, good service and choice of typical Mayan and Mexican dishes, we really enjoyed it

There aren’t many options near the ruins. We went with the buffet for about 25 dollars each. The food was unhealthy and not fresh. The staff were friendly though.

We had dinner there and found it quite enjoyable. It was a buffet dinner and what was quite a treat was that they had actual REAL Yucatecan food. The price was pretty average for a nice place. I would recommend it!
