“Surprise in the forest”
Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

We had not read the reviews on tripadvisor, but this restaurant had a sign near our hotel and we decided to try it. We drove up the dirt road, and thought we were going the wrong way. We persevered, and we were very glad that we did. The restaurant is set in a lovely forest setting and the food was very good. We read the reviews when we got back to the restaurant, and agreed that it deserved a very high rating.

“Ottima cena stile italiano”
Reviewed 23 December 2013 via mobile

We had a Camaron Pizza and Pasta. Everything tasted really good. At 9pm they have also live music. The owner Alessandra, is a really nice and friendly person. The place is not easy to find, it is close to the Palenque ruins, not in city center. Look for the map on Google, street view will help. We'd go there again!

Ciao Stefy, muy amable; Un gracias también de parte de los músicos que, al igual que nosotros gozan de las buenas opiniones. Tal vez habrá ocasión, porque no, de vernos otra vez en otro viaje a México. Buen detalle: la vista de la calle de google maps efectivamente non ubica muy bien. Feliz regreso. hasta la próxima! Ale

“Great Food and Location”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

You have to know where this place is to find it, because you will not just stumble upon it. They have a great mix of Italian with a local flair. Try the Chaya Lemonade. The service was delightful and the staff were fabulous to our party of 11 with 6 kids ages 8 and under!
