A great welcome, and delicious. Sadly, I ordered fries to go with my salad which was rather lost in translation, but they arrived very quickly when I 're-ordered' and were proper home cooked chips! Staff were very efficient and friendly. Worth a trip.

We only ate here. The food was adequate, lots of choice if you like chicken! My partner had a dry pork dish as was my chicken dish. Our vegetarian friends struggled with choice. Only 1 bottle each of white and red wine which was pleasant.

Also we do have ample vegetarian dishes but one has to realize in Mexico it is mainly meat and it is a struggle to find in this area vegetarian dishes . Also... More

We loved the Chaya dish! Excellent quality food. The soups are all vegetarian, which was awesome. The Greek salad was also excellent. Our boys like the grilled cheese sandwich, which was not on the menu, but they were able to accommodate.

We ate a delicious, fresh meal at Pickled Onion as we drove back from the nearby caves (grutas) to Havienda Uxmal. The food selection was fine and generally tasted very good, with the only disappointment taste-wise being the juice which had lots of water added. Sadly the service was a bit grumpy and monosyllabic with our smiles and niceties being... More

We came across this oasis on the Ruta Puuc by accident, whilst staying at the Lodge at Uxmal . What a lucky find!
