Long time there, it is still the local’s and visitors choice when looking for Yucateca cuisine in Cuernavaca. Place is big and normally crowded, specially weekends. Dishes are well prepared and flavor is good. Menu has other choices for non Yucateca cuisine lovers.

I tasted several items on the menu including sopa de lima, enchiladas in pumpkin seed sauce, and ensalada de palmitos. None were great. And the price would cause one to expect a better dish. I wouldn't come back.

This restaurant is located in the Hotel Rio 1300. I'd heard from some guests that the food isn't good (and they were eating for free - Mexican police academy cadets staying at the hotel). Nevertheless, it was convenient for me to grab a bite there...More
