The restaurant is just at the foot of Paseo Montejo. What is great about that on Sunday is that the Paseo is open to Bici, the bikathon that takes over one side of the avenue and several side streets where families, couples and singles rent...More

Service was excellent. The ambience was very old Mexican style. Menu very assorted. Taco dorados - yummy and not greasy. Fried platanos a bit greasy but good with the rich Mexican cream. Highly recommend a stop and bit to eat. Oh... Bathrooms very clean

Meh meh meh. Such a great location and building. This should be a total social center, but it insists on being mediocre in every way.

The location here makes it a great place to stop after meandering the Paseo De Montejo and still view the goings on as you enjoy your meal. The food is rather expensive, but not out of line with others right on the Paseo. The buffet...More

Maybe it was because they were only two waiters, but the service was slow and when the food did come out we were kind of tired of waiting. Another table walked out after waiting a while. The food was OK with the chicken with rajas...More
