Like many of the restaurants in the area, the specialty is Yucatan food, which is pretty good and well prepared. We were particularly impressed with the "grilled watermelon", it was an unusual taste treat. The atmosphere is nice and it is close to the San Bernardino convent. The drinks are good and the staff is very attentive. The outdoor setting... More

Service was fine, food was a fail. One dish arrived cold, another missing a key ingredient. Our server was quick to fix these issues, but the kitchen seemed to be having an off night. We won't be returning.

Really had looked forward to this place. Got all dressed up and read tons of good reviews. Unfortunately, nothing like we hoped being Yucatan foodies. Dont know if we were on an off night but I wouldnt come back here again. Service was just OK. Overpriced and overportioned. Both boyfriend and I felt a bit weird afterwards, and kept thinking...

This was absolutely a gourmet Mayan restaurant that is both beautiful and unpretentious. It's in a garden setting with both indoor and outdoor (palapa-style) seating. We ended up eating two meals there because we liked it so much. Every dish was delicious, and we loved the cocktails too. The service was friendly and attentive. Definitely a sure bet if you're...

I have regularly been happy with food and service here. First went just over a year ago with some other attendees at a workshop I was taking. We went a couple of times in that 5 days. I was back again this year with different attendees of this year's version of the workshop. There were six of us and everybody... More

We went to Taberna de los Frailes for a special evening in support of the Valladolid English Library. The meal was absolutely delicious followed by a wonderful intimate concert by Steve Katz who is a founding member of Blood Sweat and Tears. We have eaten here a few times before and this meal was no exception to the quality we... More

Had our best meal in Mexico here! The restaurant puts a twist on traditional Mexican fare, our lunch was full of flavor and ingredients seemed wonderfully fresh. Open air dining on a veranda by a small but beautifully-tended garden. Refreshing change from a lot of stodgy food we've had elsewhere (loved the fried melon with cheese!). Located on elegant road...

We were able to walk to this quaint establishment from our hotel. It is not what you would expect for a restaurant "in town," as they have done such a good job of making it have a private feel with the layout and landscaping. I felt as if I were out in the countryside. We had a large group and... More

We had an amazing meal with equally perfect cocktails. Odd for us to hear somber Christmas music on the 30th (likely it would play till Epiphany) but once the meal arrived we forgot all about it. I wanted to return the next day and then the morning after that but it was closed for the holidays. I highly recommend it.
