Popped in for a few drinks on our last day. The guy had asked us to stop in the night before and recognised us and gave us a lovely welcome. It was pleasant, the drinks were 2 for 1 and it was definitely served with a smile.

Service was good and food options were good. Seafood was okay and Mexican options were good. AGAIN Nov Salsa with meal? In Mexico I expect Guacamole and or LOCAL salsa. ONCE again neither were provided. Food was okay.. nothing to go out of your way for.

Excellent choice if you want a good breakfast that locals appreciate for years. Great food, no nonsense staff and service. They carry a big variety that is good for meat eater as well as for vegetarians and even vegans. Fabulous experience for the last 10 years that we visit.

We stumbled across this restaurant on a walk around downtown, Cancun - where we were staying. The lady managing the restaurant, despite a limited understanding of English, went out of her way to make sure we felt welcome. In fact many a morning coffee turned in to a lazy morning watching the world go by over a few cervezzas and... More

Stopped for food on our first night. Very attentive and charismatic staff. Cheap drink seem to permanently do 2 for 1 on drinks though that's pretty standard from what I've seen. Guacamole was our first Mexican guacamole and didn't disappoint. Our mains were large and very filling. The Mayan chicken was a little tasteless but the beef tacos were very... More

Very pleasant and accommodating restaurant. Buffet style with a wide variety of dishes from sea to plains. Be careful or you'll need a siesta, after looking at the lovely grounds and artwork.

We had a nice relaxing meal here and the nice lady running the place even changed the music to mine and my sons request! Good ol' Ranchero music! The prices are average and the food delicious!
