Definitely order the grilled watermelon, which was unexpectedly delicious. The pulled pork was also very good. The tamale, not so much.

we've just got there to drink after visiting the adjacent Convent. So we grab some appetizers and cold Dos XX relaxing in the beautiful patio at sunset. Worth to visit.

We went to the Taberna de los Frailes because it was within walking distance of Casa Quetzal where we were straying. We were not disappointed! Great food and reasonable prices. Tasted a delicious sweet Yucatan liqueur made with anise and honey! Would definitely dine there...More
