The hotel where we were staying recommended this restaurant and we are so happy to have taken his advice. The location is easy to find and to get to and the service is outstanding. I ordered the Poc chuc, which is a Mexican dish of meat, commonly pork, that is prepared in citrus marinade and cooked over a grill. Poc... More

We've been to Izamal three times, so have tried all the restaurants in town, and this is, by far, our favorite. It is appropriately called "cafe": it is informal and you can order as little or as much as you want and sit at your table for as long as you want. We saw lots of locals here, either getting...

We have been based in Izamal for a week and have had lunch and dinner at Los Arcos several times. We have tried Ensaladas, Fajitas, Panuchos, Sopa de Lima, Tortas and Pay de Coco to name a few and all have been well cooked and tasty. The Guacamole is the best my husband has had during 2 months in Mexico!... More

My sister, my one-year-old, and I went to Los Arcos for dinner, at the recommendation of our airbnb host, and I'm so glad we did! It's a sweet little restaurant right on one of the 2 main plazas in Izamal, and the propieter and the server were both so helpful and accommodating to the kiddo and to us adults. We... More

The food was good but not many vegetarian options. The menu is not in English so we guessed at some things, but it was all pretty tasty.

Very surprised with the quality and the flavor. Great taste and fairly priced. The place is very humble but the plaza makes the case for a good place to be.

Izamal is a city certainly worth the trip and this cafe restaurant was a very welcome surprise, during a very hot afternoon. We had only licuados and fruit juice, too bad it was not a good time for lunch because the dishes i saw in other customers' plates seemed really really nice and authentic, for once. Great service and ambiance.

Thank TeoSza

Some of Izamal ... The City: With walls painted in ocher, their carriages and patterned streets, emphasizing its Colonial appearance. Izamal is lived and vibrates in a magical journey through time, by the Yucatan Maya Colonial Yucatan and the Yucatan Current. And there is a place to eat food rich with 100% regional colonial city in the "Los Arcos"
