Wonderful lunch in a magical garden! We had everything from guacamole to the pork to tamales. It was all delicious. The monastery next door made it perfect. The piña coladas were the best in Mexico!

The restaurant is located in front on the church and next to a Cenote. Which means that the bats are flying around you when leaving the cenote. There was completely empty when we went there, but even then the service was quite slow. Their special dish was not available so we choosed some other traditionel dishes from the region. Fair...

I love the garden and the place used to be cozier, I do not know if the owner, or cheff changed, first they took away the nice and comfortable living room bya... More

Lovely garden spot, there was only four other diners here... not sure why because it's got the most beautiful view of the convent, the food it really fresh and delicious (skewers - beef chicken and shrimp) and the wait staff were so happy to serve us and our six year old daughter. Definitely a great spot if you visit the... More

I enjoyed eating here. My meal was good but I was still hungry afterwards. Great service. They even have a few veggie dishes.

Stopped in here for cocktails followed by dinner. Had the pook chook, which was pretty good, but my friend had the pulled pork and that was even better. Service was great and the place is a gorgeous oasis of calm.

The food here was really good. We had the Pook Chook, which are Mayan pork chops, the Xec salad made of orange, grapefruit, jicama and mint, and the ceviche. Everything was good. The Pook Chook was very good. We found the portions to be very satisfying and would have done well with two out of the three honestly. The service... More

We got there at 7 PM because we had read well on the site. It was completely empty, so we chose only to take a beer and find another place. Maybe it's the time of year? Or maybe there are many visitors in connection with lunch and bus tours. It looks like this in several reviews.

Great food and good service—we enjoyed our lunch at Taverna de los Frailes. My ceviche was outstanding. If you visit, be ready for large servings.

This is a very nice restaurant. More pricy than what we usually do, but it was our anniversary and we splurged a little. As always, I asked the waiter which items he likes best and if it sounds like something I would like, I go for it. I can remember the name (Mayan words) but it was the first item... More
