Typical buffet with some local choices. Good entertainment as they sing and dance on stage. The service is iffy but it is a buffet so help yourself. Drinks are not included nor are drinks allowed to be brought in.

A no compromise place to buy souvenirs and support the local Mayan culture. Lots of neat items you won’t see anywhere else. And some you will. 😀

I thought this restaurant was disgusting, the food is not good at all. And they ask for tips all the time.

We stopped by here after going to Chichen-Itza. It was a good choice as it was convenient and relatively inexpensive. The food was pretty good but not too notch.

Mayan culture at its best, the Mayan people are wonderful, fantastic cooks, and put on a nice dinner dance.

Our bus driver recommended this place to us on our way back from Chichen Itza, and I'm glad we stopped! The buffet food was excellent, not to mention the hand-rolled pork tacos; they were rolled and made right in front of you, and were amazing....More
