Close to the road but worth a visit. The food is really good. The limonadas were really big a one of the best we had in Mexico. Our starter was a mix of different thing. Would definitely take the same starter again.

We found the Pickled Onion in a stormy night of August on our way from Merida to Calakmul. We can't sleep there because it was full, but fortunately we had the chance to try the meals of the tipical cuisine. Chimichangas, Burritos, Enchiladas, Chicken Fajitas and Cerdo were Amazing. I suggest to try once this restaurant to anyone who can... More

This is the most expensive restaurant in Santa Elena. I only ate here once and the food was pretty good, but the food at the other restaurants was equally as good (and many times better) and was much cheaper. This restaurant is the most "American" of the restaurants in Santa Elena but not the best in town.

Thank you for your review but I must disagree with you about being "americanized" yes we do have hamburgers which because of children who do not wish to eat local foods but you chose to eat as we remarked that you were looking for some comfort food.... I think visiting once for hamburgers does not warrant that it is not... More

This hillside restaurant and lodge is worth a stop for a nice meal and some friendly conversation with Valerie, the owner. We enjoyed a complete tour of her lovely 'home'. Individual casitas are artfully appointed and cozy. The pool and spa definitely add to the luxury factor. Though we just stopped for lunch, it would have been worth an overnight... More
