The combo breakfast with eggs, bacon and pancake is a good choice. Nothing world beating but solid and filling. Coffee is strong and refillable if you think to ask. Service a little slow on our second visit. Price is decent considering the fancy setting (around 130 for the combo option). Recommended.

This restaurant is solid----solid service, solid food, solid location. They have an extensive menu with something for everyone; our youngest enjoyed a cheeseburger while our other kids loved their fish with mango sauce and chile rellenos. My husband and I tried some delicious traditional Mayan dishes. The beer and wine list is long, the dining area is pleasant (if a... More

While visiting the Mayan Riviera for a week, one day we took the 'collectivo' from our time share at the Grand Mayan to just north of Tulum to meet my wife's cousin who has a house there. He gave us a locals tour and drove us to Valladolid, an old city in the Yucatan State. After touring an private estate... More

For the last 4 years we have been having a bit of a family and friends tradition. When we get to Valladolid we usually stop here for our first Margarita and Lunch. So when we had some family come to town we happily met with other family members to perpetuate the tradition. We were not disappointed at all. The Margaritas... More

Four friends enjoyed a lovely meal there with great service for the prices compared to American. Diablo chicken and stuffed peppers were great! Beautiful atmosphere with an open courtyard.

I was there a couple of weeks ago, and a year ago, for the 'pre-workshop introductory dinner' of a group of 10 or 12 attending a five-day workshop. I've also been there some years ago with friends visiting from Canada [they stayed in the hotel] and for a meal or two with just 2 or 3 of us during last... More

In two weeks, this was one of our best dinners. Seating was al fresco around a plaza and fountain. Service excellent. Prices reasonable. This would be my go-to restaurant in the city, hands down.
