I have a soft spot for courtyard hotels in Mexico, and the restaurant here did not disappoint. The service was friendly and attentive, the quality and presentation was excellent and the price matched (mid-high, but not excessively so given the quality of the experience). The house specialty of queso relleno is a large slab of local cheese stuffed with a... More

This restaurant has a beautiful courtyard and artworks. I recommend you to order the guacamole! A waiter cooks guacamole in front of us. It's fresh and tasty!

There is an excellent selection of drinks and fresh juices. We enjoyed guacamole made at the table. Gazpacho was very enjoyable. Everything was very fresh and we enjoyed lunch here very much.

This review is solely for the restaurant (we stayed in the hotel as well): The location and building are fantastic given its historical significance and proximity to the town square. The food is okay. Nowhere near as good as you can find elsewhere in Valladolid. The main issue for my party was the service. We went 45+ minutes without our... More

The combo breakfast with eggs, bacon and pancake is a good choice. Nothing world beating but solid and filling. Coffee is strong and refillable if you think to ask. Service a little slow on our second visit. Price is decent considering the fancy setting (around 130 for the combo option). Recommended.

This restaurant is solid----solid service, solid food, solid location. They have an extensive menu with something for everyone; our youngest enjoyed a cheeseburger while our other kids loved their fish with mango sauce and chile rellenos. My husband and I tried some delicious traditional Mayan dishes. The beer and wine list is long, the dining area is pleasant (if a... More

While visiting the Mayan Riviera for a week, one day we took the 'collectivo' from our time share at the Grand Mayan to just north of Tulum to meet my wife's cousin who has a house there. He gave us a locals tour and drove us to Valladolid, an old city in the Yucatan State. After touring an private estate... More
