Now, the quiet entry may be related to the time we were there, a week night at dinner. It has the appearance of a place the might really get going on the weekend. The food was good, not great, the price were good. It is a bar/restaurant. For those who have been to Habaneros in Puerto Morelos, it is nothing... More

Small terrace outside with a few tables but because of the heat and that the road in front is busy and dusty we chose to go inside. There are about 10 small tables very close together with the backs of chairs touching each other. I chose... More

The food here was ok, but the service was a complete chaos. There were several people waiting on us. Due to their poor coordination we got complimentary starters twice, meaning we were half full by the time food arrived. Drinks took ages to arrive. The food was generally ok, but the meat in the pibian dish was dry and hard... More

Super! Cerdo ahumado and sopa de lima - excelente. The made to order salsa was amazing. This place is a five minute walk from the museum and totally worth the visit.

One of the last to have an authentic tortilladora in from making authentic good tasting tortilladoras. Selection of beers and some liquor. The extensive menu is Mexicfan on one side and Yucatecan on the other to help ignorant gringos like me to learn more about the foods here. Everything was attractively served. The table salsa was some of the best... More
