We had an enjoyable mid week dinner here and had the place to ourselves.
There is a small parking lot directly in front of the restaurant that is open and airy with a contemporary water feature in it's center and large dated photos from the Areas in the Yucatán. Other decorations are heads of deer. The staff were attentive and the bathrooms clean and attractive. The food was tasty especially the venison. We finished the meal with delicious vanilla pudding sprinkled with cinnamon and flan.

Long time there, it is still the local’s and visitors choice when looking for Yucateca cuisine in Cuernavaca.
Place is big and normally crowded, specially weekends.
Dishes are well prepared and flavor is good.
Menu has other choices for non Yucateca cuisine lovers.

Thoroughly enjoyable restaurant for people with a taste for the foods of Yucatan. The quality and presentation was delightful and the food tasted great, albeit that I am not acquainted with the foods of Yucatan. The ambience is great and it is a place that should not be missed for regional Mexican food.

I loved the food. There are some unusual menu choices, but all are wonderful. I had the venison soup and suckling pig (pulled pork) The staff are welcoming and helpful and can happily recommend this well established restaurant.
