We were tired, weary & in great need of sustenance after 3hrs wandering around Chichen Itza. We wanted good, tasty taco's & a cold beer. We found exactly what we wanted here. We both thoroughly enjoyed the 2 versions of pork taco's that they have on the menu - it was just what we needed. Sitting outside under the beautiful... More

My party of 4 enjoyed drinks and snacks here on a late afternoon, and met another couple for the same the next afternoon. I especially enjoyed the cappuccino as well as the lomitos. Service is a bit slow, but no one rushes you from the table either.

As you may have read there have been problems with guest's bills. I have found, on a day when the tour buses are in, and tourists are about, this Restaurant is adding their gratuity on the bill. We are all old enough to know how and when to tip. We do not need, or want, the restaurant to add their... More

Food was average as was the service. Pretty location but nothing special in the food. I've paid a lot less for a lot better

Had 4 drinks at this place. The bill was 240, paid with 500, got back 200. When questioned they informed about a 15 % surcharge for service. During my whole trip in Mexico this is the only place I got ripped of.

We chose this restaurant as it was busy and looked nice and clean. We had three evening meals here. Service was prompt, food was fresh and tasty.

I have eaten there a two times over the years and the food has always been poor or mediocre, and we once waited an hour for our food.

We are not clear at why you keep on coming back! Could it be that you only want to write a bad review? Could it be that you do not know any better? Three times!! For bad service and food, there has to be something wrong with you! Your review top my curiosity, Why would anyone keep on going to... More
