Description: Established in 2001 Cafe Capistrano is a family owned restaurant specializing in Mayan cuisine. Using the freshest local fish, meats and produce infused with Mayan flavors results in light, savory combinations.Chef and owner Arturo Mul reigns from the Yucatan peninsula in Mexico. When opening his restaurant, he wanted to introduce the flavors and food from his home town, Akil. Mul brought in family recipes to help create the menu and special items. Mayan cooking shows influences from Mediterranean Europe, the Middle East, and the rest of Mexico as well as North and South America.

Another, very average place, is right next door!!!! I'm wondering if the lower ratings are from there by mistake??? Trip Advisor has not let's down on this vacation.

This place is a home built into a restaurant. We were helped and served really quickly. The food was good, and pricing was decent.

The owner Arturo served us and made us feel completely at home. The dining room is small, intimate and charming. The food is the best of all! Very good. Fresh, fresh fresh! Must check this place out. Best food in Half Moon Bay.
