We arrived without a reservation and were well attended. The food was excellent as well as the service. Superb pesto sauce on my ravioli ! Lovely live music. We were there in May which is the low season.

They have a nice choice of Pizzas. Other items are limited and no variety in choices. Has a nice touristy setting with a wide selection of wines. Very close to the Mayan ruins and worth a visit.
