We went to this restaurant because a Mexican guide told us to. We were afraid at the beginning, as it was really dirty (and when I say dirty, I mean really dirty). However, we stayed to eat and we didn't feel sorry about it: a very friendly staff and by far, the best food we've had in two weeks in... More

Their food today was exceptional. Horchatta was delicioso and the chicken and rice soup was better than we'd heard. Their quesadillas with oaxatta( spelling?) cheese and chicken also were the best. BUT I was very offended that the first menus we received were in English and priced in US dollars. That alone was not a problem. But the prices seemed... More

Had the chorizo with cheese which was awesome! 3 big tacos with veggies for only 45 pesos. Rene was really funny and inviting!

Great food and great service Enjoyed the Mom and Pop feeling of this little gem. Small place with no frills but the food was excellent. Will definitely visit again next time we vacation in Cancun

I had the pleasure of stopping by this little restaurant and returned several times over the course of my stay. They always remembered us and made us feel welcome. Anything that you want, they will make. My daughter said it was the best flan she had ever tasted. Good food, great company - they made us feel at home here.

And my brother had a fish... More

We, (all 9 of us) arrived to his place to eat. He took a great deal of time trying to get our order. The way that he made things right when an order was wrong was GREAT. This is the kind of place you can really feel at home. When I seen the tripadvisor sign on the door, and asked... More

It is a place most people would walk by and not even think to stop to eat. The food was fantastic. We each had garlic shrimp. Their guacamole is some of the best I've eaten. They will make anything you want, just ask.
