I have been in Chelem 3 days and eaten here twice and will return. The food is very good and plentiful. The bacon is so good and cooked to perfection. The fish tacos were so fresh and the toppings are scrumptious. Order a pitcher of lemonade you won't be sorry. The owners are very friendly and seem to know everyone.

Most popular resturant in Chelem. The food is great and there's lots of it! You'll never walk away hungry. The atmosphere and owners are very welcoming. People from afar just to enjoy the food.

Excellent food, friendly, good service; the original fish tacos were the best as well as the blackend fish taco. We liked that gringos and local Yucatecans could mingle and were welcome.
