This is a beautiful restaurant and I loved the artificial rainfall to keep us cool and keep mosquitoes away so that we could eat outside under an authentic thatched Mayan roof structure. The food was authentic and service was friendly and efficient.

We live in Izamal, and often bring our visiting friends to eat in this very nice restaurant. We are vegetarian, and there are several tasty options available. The service is always good, and the atmosphere is tropical and beautiful.

This is the nicest restaurant in a poor town. This restaurant certainly makes its living catering to tour buses but it was clean, the service was good and the food was decent. The tour arranged the lunch so everyone was served the same dishes said to be typical Mayan food.

I am not sure what they are capable of if you ordered off the menu.

The restaurant was open air with a palm roof.

It was not a bad meal overall. It also had a well stocked bar.

Our tour guide recommended this. We were on a private tour and relied on his knowledge. However, the lunch wasn't as nice as expected and I think overpriced. All the tour guides sit together and order from a different menu. I ordered rice and plantain that was listed under soup. It was simply rice with sliced plantains around the side. The tostadas and dips were very nice to start but the rest was rather disappointing. I'll try somewhere else for lunch in Izamal next time.

I was very surprised by this restaurant. This restaurant was recommended by a family friend and what a treat. Great Decor, fantastic service, good prices and very good tasting dishes. The Tortillas are hand made and cooked over a open fire pit. We had the Sopa de Lima, The Cochinita Pibil, The Queso Relleno and the Deer Meat. If you are ever looking for a restaurant which deliverers authentic dishes visit this place. Open from 12-8 each day.
