“Good Food, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Good food for this region/area. Nothing completely outstanding, but everything was good in a typical way. We ate here twice, so that says something. The service, however, is great! Friendly, accommodating, but not hovering.
If you are looking for a good salad (hard to find in some Latin American areas), El Toro has a good one. I just asked for less rice and more lettuce. The Poc-Chuc is good too.

“My usual choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

The menu is small but the food is typical and well priced. It is well placed and the beer is cold. The bathrooms are clean. It's a good place to eat if you are on foot.

“Authentic mexican food at a fair price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

5 stars not compared with fine gourmet restaurants, but it really outbid expectations. Like most visitors we have been 1 night in Izamal, and the littel restaurant near the monastry looked like a tourist restaurant with few alternatives in town. But food was delicious, more authentic mexican then we got elsewhere in Yucatan, at reasonble prices ... what else did we need and thats good for a 5 star review.

“No haute-cuisine, but appetizing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

Go for the sopa de lima or the poc chuc and give the super-friendly family an extra tip as they're extremely friendly.

“Best Food In Izamal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2013

The food was great and the owner waited on us himself. He was a great host. He sat with us and joked like we were guests in his house. Good value as well.
