This restaurant is one of the most beautiful colonial restaurants I have visited. They only have a buffet lunch which was a drawback for me as I prefer to order off of a menu, but the other 5 people in our group did not have the same comment.The buffet was good as was the service. I don't think I would... More

Located on the corner of Calle 41 and 44, you would never know what lies behind its grand wooden colonial doors until you enter it. Once you step inside, your first reaction will be, "WOW!", and you will immediately think that you shouldn't be in here as it would seem only reserved for royalties. Don't let that scare you away....

The garden and space of this restaurant are very impressive. There are fountains and an art gallery on the premises. Be sure to check out the huge collection of folk-art masks on the walls. the Yucatecan food is very well prepared and presented. The meals are reasonably priced and the service is excellent.

This place is owned by Xcaret as you can see with large groups of people stopping here for lunch after doing their tour. The buffet is average, service very nice, but if you have the chance there are plenty other places to try out that are excellent.

This is a lunch restaurant with a buffet. The quality is good, the tastes not special. We enjoyed it but found it rather expensive compared to other retaurants. The building and garden are beautiful but can also be visited without lunch.

My Chichen Itza Tour stopped here for lunch, so I was not expecting fun in quality, but I was surprised that I enjoyed this meal and experience. I was lucky that the tour and crowd at the restaurant was not crowded, so I got to enjoy the food as it should be. Not all the offerings was good, some were... More

I've heard good things about the food but so far our experience, over a couple of trips to Valladolid has only been to 'tour' the site. My partner and I have seen it before, on previous trips, and when we returned with friends at New Year's, and again a couple of weeks later, we toured our friends through it to... More

Im not a buffet person, but this buffet was exceptional. Our entire group of 12 (kids included) loved it, and we are some serious foodies!!! The chicken with mole sauce was my favorite. We got there before the tour buses, and I highly advise that you do the same. I think we got there around 12-1230. As we were leaving... More

Buffet style restaurant that offers a wide variety of choice of soup, meal and juices. Some vegetarian options. Located only a few blocks from Valladolid main square and church Take some time to look at the back courtyard and the fountain – amazing! Mexican cuisine is a declared intangible heritage of Humanity by UNESCO and we love it!
