A great experience and my first introduction to food of the Yucatan. This seems to be a family-owned restaurant that takes a lot of pride in food that is not made ahead of time. A great place to see where local people might eat for...More

The lunch buffet is perfect for experiencing regional Yucatán cuisine unlike basic Mexican food. The buffet is all you can eat, the variety is huge and the service is very attentive. Even the desserts are different and uniquely Yucatán

We are an operator of restaurants we admire the culture, customs and this land, its people and their way of being. In our restaurant you can enjoy genuine dishes, an interesting atmosphere and service with typical warmth of our race. In addition to the flavor of these exotic lands, home to one of the most amazing civilizations of mankind, that for more than 10,000 years ago populate this region and hunting, gathering and agriculture learned to survive giving rise to a unique cuisine that many years later with the influence and contributions of conquerors modern cuisine that is admired is created. We work with the emerging recipes "vox populi" ie the housewives, from every corner of the peninsula, from which arise the different dishes with different ingredients and flavors.
