I loved it. I went solo, on a Wednesday night around 8. I would recommend going on a weeknight in the evening if possible, because in the afternoons and on weekends, it is overrun with tourists, and I suspect the experience suffers. I ate a...More

Went here based upon the reviews. Ordered several items and they bring you what they want. They replaced skirt steak with bad flank steak.. dry sausage ( and it’s made here) all around bad experience. Would not return or recommend.

Me and my husband had dinner here during our trip to Valladolid. This is a MUST when visiting the city. Not only is the food great, but also the restaurant is filled with history.

I've been coming to this restaurant for years. It's also attached to a nice hotel. The restaurant gardens are beautiful. Tables under cover are arranged around 100 year old trees dangling orchids. The food is Mayan, Mexican, and a few things like hamburgers thrown in....More

We did enjoy our lunch. Good service in a very pleasant courtyard restaurant. May be used by tour groups. Food was good, an excellent dish prepared at the table. Worthwhile
