The restaurant is a short walk from the Zocalo down Av 59 @ Av 60 on a beautiful square. The sopa de lima is not to be missed. Cochinita pibil is a delicious yucatan specialty. Try pavo, turkey. It is a brightly lit traditional space with excellent food and service.

I only had dessert and a few drinks here (which the flan was excellent) however, we watching plates of steaming and sizzling meats and tacos and delicious smelling foods that I would definitely eat here the next time I am in town. It was very busy on a Friday afternoon, filled with locals only.

Good service, lots of dishes from Yucatan typical food. If you are close to Paseo Montejo you need to take a taxi to get there.

We were pointed toward this restaurant as it is supposedly one of the oldest around. The food was very average, read a few reviews talking about the Sopa de Lima... It was disappointing to say the least, a bland chicken broth with a quarter of lime and some dry turkey. Conchinita Pibil was good but the rest of the combination... More

It's a nice local restaurant. I went to the one inside the Fiesta Americana hotel. The atmosphere is too quiet and up to some extent boring. I was surprised that all the waiters ran back and forth all the time and I even heard one argue with a supervisor. Food was good. Something I found distasteful is that when signing... More

I personally found their food OK but not all it was hyped up to be. Service was average by local standards, it was very slow by US standards. They appeared to be understaffed so the waiter would forget drinks, etc. and had to be constantly reminded.

Is yucatecan food, you can try anything from the menu and I am sure it will be good. Prices are ok, friendly and attentive staff. Tortillas are hand made fresh as fresh can be.
