Stumbled into it for a quick dinner. Great cochinita pibil, fast service and good bang for the buck. If you are looking for cheap eats this is the place!

This little island is a great place for a quick lunch. Very sweet atmosphere, GREAT conchinita and don't miss the horchata! The staff was super quick and super friendly. A must for a quick meal in San Cristobal :)
It's cheap as well.

It was so good that I went twice in my 4 days visit to San Cristobal! Salsas are awesome and very spicy! Don't miss de "Tortita de Cochinita", best dish option!

We decided to give this place a shot based on the rave reviews we had read on TripAdvisor. It was close to our hotel, and getting late and we were hungry.

Having lived for years in Merida, Yucatan I have eaten a lot of cochinita. That said, this was fine. It wasn't anywhere near the best I've ever eaten, and was kind of bland actually.

The best thing about it were the spicy salsas they had, those were indeed very tasty.

It was good, but not great.
