This is a nice local place and a littel bit away from the main tourist area. The food was ok. It tasted good, but we had some sore stomache after eating.... Very mexican way of making beef and pork in a jummie way!

This was not a fancy restaurant but the food was excellent. The food was served family style and that made it easy to share with others in our group. We can’t wait to go here again next year.
