Waited 50 minutes for a waffle that was the Mexican version of a US toaster waffle. Waited 10 more minutes for a crepe and was actually a pancake. Worst meal in almost 15 years of visiting Mexico.

Food was amazing! Adults got steak and seafood and they offered waffles for the kids! Win. Win. Portions were large, everyone had some left on their plate. The kids ordered a lemonade they loved! It's a must do again!
