On a recent trip to Chichen Itza we decided to spend the afternoon in Villadolid. I saw the reviews on Trip Advisor for Taberna de los Frailes and made a point to have lunch there. This restaurant has so much character and charm. The setting is so relaxing and comfortable but the food was incredible. The menu was filled with very interesting selections that made it very hard to pick. Our group of four shared the grilled watermelon which was delicious. Then the main courses of shrimp, fish, stuffed chicken breast and tamale’s all of which we loved and then desert of lemon cake and coconut cream. The Mayan Yucatecan food was wonderful, the service was top notch, and the setting is just what you need to relax while on vacation. Don’t miss the opportunity to eat at such a unique and wonderful restaurant.

This is a superb restaurant. The ambiance is lovely and the service gracious. Seated in a thatched room built according to ancient Mayan architecture, we enjoyed cuisine imbued with both Spanish Mexican and ancient Mayan influences. Vegetable, fruit and fish ingredients were all delightfully fresh and beautifully presented. Wonderful dishes were prepared with roasted pumpkin seeds, local chiles and ripe avocadoes. Real corn tortillas were warm and succulent. Excellent chocolate ice cream.

As good as it gets for Yucatan cuisine. Long mescal list of rarities---all excellent. Beautiful garden setting with ex-convent across street.

I had a delicious octopus, my friend had great tacos, and we both had good drinks. You can sit outside on their beautiful patio and look at the Convent de San Bernardino de Siena while you eat.

Beautiful setting, easy to walk to from Casa Hama Guesthouse. Perhaps the finest dining in all of Valladolid.
