In few words is a grate place to eat, every dish that we got was amazing , Luis the owner and Giovani( my man )was wonderful in his services. They had a deal with the drinks that work out perfect for my budget. We went back the next night and still have a blast, grate see food, grate margaritas, grate two beers for the price of one (now try to find a better deal), and to make it even better , they were short of desert that night but suggested us to head to the park few feet away and to try Marquesitas!!! they were amazing. In few words , nice place to eat, nice location , the nicest staff, and wonderful food, you will not be disappoint.

“Excellent Traditional Regional Mexican food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Owner Luis has created a a restaurant that provides patrons the ability to choose from a plethora of regional recipies in one place. He employs chef Rodrigo who hails from Mexico City has years of fine cuisine coolking at high end hotels as well as several years ofFrench culinary training. We asked about specific regional foods just to understand the types of ingrediants so both Rodrigo and Luis asked if we would like to try a dish made of one of the ingrediants native to regions outside Cancun. We agreed to a date later in the week in order for them to obtain the ingrediants. Boy what a treat! Rodfrigo master minded a dish of huitlacoche, a Mexican delicacy derived from a corn fungus ( kinda of cross between mushroom and truffle). He conjured up a crepe like omelette that was filled with so much huitalcoche that most other restaurants would use so sparingly they could make at least six of these. The staff is attentive, accommodating and very friendly. I prefer this place more than the over rated Parrilla...too noisy and alot more expensive. Treat yourself to a great meal and where you get a bang for your buck...peso!

“It was such a great food experience we went back again.”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

My family of four found the reviews helpful and decided to try this place out. We all want to thank you for your input! This was the best food experience that we have had while in Cancun. We had guacamole, the shrimp dish that the owner recommended, shrimp tacos, and loaded nachos. Everything was excellent. We went back again today for dinner and had shrimp soup, two orders of guacamole, shrimp tacos, and fish tacos. Today was another great food experience. The only thing that might make this place a little better would be some indoor seating. I completely recommend this place to anyone who is worried about trying new places or if your just interested in good reasonably priced food.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Finding good food is hard in Cancun, especially as a first timer. It's not like travelling in SEAsia, where food is everywhere! We stumbled across this place on Sunday, and came back today, Monday to try it out. Wonderful warm, friendly service, good food prices( that's a rarity in Cancun) and delicious food and Margaritas. They even reminded us that there was a small price difference between 2 different beers my husband ordered which was fantastic! It's down the side street next to Burger King on Ave Tulum, +-3 roads away from he ADO bus station.
A definite must while you're in Cancun, very easy to get the R1 back to the hotel zone as it stops at the top of the road!!!
We will definitely go back!
