AS mentioned in other reviews, there is not a lot of choice of restaurants in Izamal...Kinich probably being the only one in town....If not, it is certainly the largest, as it endlessly hosts tour groups that come to visit the town. So you're forewarned if you decide to eat there. You're most likely to share the restaurant with hundreds of more or less interested and interesting tourists! Nevertheless, the restaurant itself, a huge palapa under which are the tables and chairs, tries to be as authentic as it can...Whether it succeeds or not is debatable however. Certainly, the waitresses are dressed in typical Yucatecan dress (huipiles) and yes, the tortillas are hand made and cooked on an open fire in the front part of the restaurant...(and they're delicious!) and yes, the menu suggests some unique choices, such as 'venado', which is actually shredded deer meat, marinated in sour orange juice and cooked in banana leaves, then served cold with radishes, onions and coriander. For such a large restaurant, service was excellent and the food more than adequate. Though not inexpensive, we felt the prices to be reasonable.
