We spent some time in the area and we found this little nice and very warm place . And surprise, the enviroment is very friendly, the food and service was exceptional, but the hot and apicy sauces are out of this world. Higly recommended. Do jot miss it.

One night in January, we walked into La Chispa. We hadn't found anything else open, and a local suggested that we check it out. Though it seemed rather unassuming from the outside, we found magic inside, that is, we met Eduardo. Sitting down, we ordered two margaritas and guacamole. The guacamole was incredibly delicious, and as we sipped our drinks,... More

If you like to sing La Chispa it's a good spot for karaoke. The prices are high, the service it's ok. Here, you can meet locals.

We arrived here after spending the whole day in Chichen Itza and cenotes, so our energy and expectations for a "crazy night" was very low; however, we got to La Chispa just for a drink and after meeting Eduardo, the owner, we stayed until 3am, singing, drinking, dancing, and having a lot of fun. He made our night and La... More

I have to say, we were very satisfied by the service and especially by the enthusiasm and friendliness of the owner. He took the time to ask for our plans and advised us on many possibilities. By example how to get easily to chichen itzu and when the best time was to visit, which cenotes in the neighborhood are mainly... More

A group of us recently visited this restaurant while on a service trip to Valladolid. The owner and staff were fantastic! Our first visit was on a Tuesday night. We were able to sit around, have a drink, and sing some karaoke. They were very accommodating and really wanted us to have a good time. We enjoyed it so much... More

This restaurante was recommended by our hotel desk for local food, late evening dinner. The restaurant has been there since 1910, and the building looks like it's been there much much longer. It was quite beautiful and romantic. Many Mexican revolution themed decorations, like a giant Poncho Villa wanted poster... Picture earthy red color walls, small enclosed courtyard area open...
