This is a beautiful restaurant and I loved the artificial rainfall to keep us cool and keep mosquitoes away so that we could eat outside under an authentic thatched Mayan roof structure. The food was authentic and service was friendly and efficient.

We live in Izamal, and often bring our visiting friends to eat in this very nice restaurant. We are vegetarian, and there are several tasty options available. The service is always good, and the atmosphere is tropical and beautiful.

This restaurant is a nice place to stop for lunch, breezy and cool, friendly service, good food. It seems to also be pretty much the ONLY option for lunch in charming but sleepy Izamal. I have been here three times now (in 2008, 2009 and...More

What stands out in this place is the setting. The tables are laid out in a shaded garden-like environment, very pleasant. The food is made from fresh ingredients - you can see them prepare red salsa in the traditional way. It's a very relaxing place,...More

We visited this restaurant as per recommended by most guides. The place is big and has a nice entrance but the interior is quite different, a huge ´palapa´ with traditional chairs. The menu offer some local dishes but in our opinion the quality of the...More
