“Hidden behind the walls”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Hidden behind the walls, here you will find a delightful little friendly restaurant. An open air atmosphere, good food, clean, and live music on specific nights. Not to be missed.

“Try the special avocado pizza!”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

My husband and I went here after reading the reviews on TA. We shared a large special avocado pizza and, even though we were both hungry, we only finished 3/4 (they put the rest in a box for us to take home). It was very tasty with generous toppings. When we arrived around 9pm the courtyard tables were mostly full (of tourists). The service was good, atmosphere nice (including live music) and coffee was great. It was reasonably priced with service charge included in the bill. We would go back - maybe next time we will leave room for one of their flambéed desserts (they make it at your table).

“Great Variety”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

Wide variety of options on the menu - Yucatecan, Mexican, Italian, American, etc. Tons of vegetarian options. Food was fresh and well-cooked. Very nice atmosphere - part of the center of the restaurant is under the open sky. There is often live music later in the evening.

“History, Art and Food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Restaurant serves food in a pleasant courtyard beneath the canopy of a large orchard tree. Yes, there is vegetarian food on the menu, but for your carnivores there is meat and chicken. Mu husband had the Yucatan chicken. It was very tasty. The avocado pizza was a real treat. We did not find the food bland as another reviewer wrote. The restaurant is located on Calle 59 no. 507 interior. They have been in the same location since 1987 which speaks well of the food, service and ambiance. At 8:30 pm...every evening they have musical entertainment. Really a nice quite place to sit, relax, and just enjoy life.
