The staff here is professional. The restaurant is clean. The food is very flavorful and delicious! They were fast at getting the food out and the prices are reasonable. Located near Martha's Guesthouse now.

Just off the main strip, this restaurant is well worth the visit. One of us had the special of the night, the cilantro chicken, and really enjoyed it. The other dishes were great as well. Good drinks and fantastic prices!

Great service, but the food was just okay. Not terrible or terrific. 4 of us ate lunch and drank bottled waters and the bill was exactly $20 US dollars.

We had been recommended to Cenaida's. It is very inexpensive and the food was fresh. There was nothing special...Dinner ran about $5 . I would rather pay $8 and eat at Han - nah's

Nice low key place across from Maxims Chinese restaurant. Friendly, inquisitive, and helpful servers. Simple menu. Coconut fish with rice, plantains, stewed beans, and salad was very good. Daughter's chicken burrito was good also. Unfortunately do not serve desserts. Very reasonably priced.

Cenaida's was definitely on my list to visit, and happy to hear they rebuilt after a fire a while back. Really great Mexican food in a relaxed family-friendly atmosphere, at super affordable prices.
