“Squeeze Cheese??”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

The Place is inside Chichén Itzá So i expected high prices - so I wasn't surprised by high prices. I expected Tourist food - which we all got. It is a very nice restaurant but I was very disappointed with the nachos - Yuck. Stale chips with canned chili and Squeeze Cheese for 135.00 mxp. They were gross. The only reason I give this place average is because the waitresses were quick and efficient and the drinks and food came fast. I would go back for a beer to sit around with friends. BUT I don't recommend the nachos. - Nasty!

“I wish I could go back there again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

Oh my gosh! This restaurant is the best one I've tried in my entire life! Their Mexican food is so fresh, so tasty, so Mexican, and I'm saying that having lived in the USA and tried Mexican food all the time while in there.

Even my 2-year-old daughter tried their out-of-this-world advocado, and wouldn't stop eating. The service was amazing even though they were quite crowded that day.

If you don't believe me, ask for their guestbook and read all the wonderful reviews they have got from people all over the world.
