Lovely place within old and historical building with very nice staff and good food. We had the house plate with different specialties and they were all good and genuine. The outside patio is the best. To be seen.

A nice, friendly and excellent Mayan cooking restaurant in an old Spanish house next to the Valladolid, Yucatan main plaza. Enjoy any of the typical region servings or they have some regular cooking all very tasty and well prepared. Check out the delicious "jugos " natural fruits mixtures along with the "cochinita" spicy bbq pork or the "panuchos" made of... More

Good moment for breakfast in this peaceful restaurant. Had package breakfast 109 pesos each. Not too cheap, really, but you pay the service and the place. Would love to get more scramble eggs in my plate.

Were told by our guide it was the best restaurant/hotel in Valladolid. Looked just beautiful, but very disppointed in our meals, they all came out at different time, forgetting one of the meals completely. Ordered Langosta (lobster) overcooked & overpriced compared to the langosta we'd been eating elsewhere. Delicious guacomole served at the table the only positive. Very friendly staff... More

I stayed a few years ago at this hotel, and when in Valladolid this visit, ate a few meals here. In Valladolid, this is one of the best places to eat. But each time we ate here this time, I felt that the waiting staff were too few for the number of customers. Cochinia Pibil is delicious here, although last... More

Our waiter rRICARDO made our guacamole right in front of us! IT WAS HEAVENLY! He took such great care of us. The actual restaurant is stunning, open and light. My husband's pork dish he said was incredible, I ate a creamy chicken dish which was equally delicious, our daughter enjoyed her burger and fries!! This restaurant is just off the... More

We arrived in Valladolid early evening and hadn't eaten since breakfast so were pretty hungry. After checking in to our hotel and a quick clean up we headed out to find food with some urgency. Being on the main square as it is we found this place fairly quickly and it all looked good, lovely courtyard setting, varied menu, reasonable... More

This place was suggested to us by a few locals. It's situated in Valladolid, a cute Mexican town. The food was good and affordable.

After spending several hours at Chichen Itsa walking the ruins, and before heading back to Playa del Carmen, we wanted to spend some time in the colonial village of Valladolid... and found a very nice restaurant/hotel across from the main square. The service and food were very nicely prepared, reasonably-priced, and a great selection of Mayan entrees! Definitely worth a... More
