It was that good. Fish tacos to die for and guacamole. Caesar salad was delicious along with the tortilla soup. Hamburger was very good and the spaghetti with shrimp delicious with a garlic white wine sauce. My husband's fish in a beurre blanc sauce was to die for and his grilled octopus top notch. Breakfast were delicious.

We ate dinner here every night while visiting Bacalar. It's located right on the lake. The food is good and reasonably priced. We loved the fish tacos and really good guacamole. Most every night our server was Claudio. He was very nice and helped us practice our Spanish. We look forward to returning here next year!

Great place to visit when in the area. One of the best Ceviche we had during our trip with raw prawns (not with cooked prawns we got in so many other places). Good tacos as well and friendly service!

Visiting with friends in Bacalar we were introduced to this treasure hidden within Rancho Encantado Eco-Resort and Spa. (I'm surprised to see such mixed reviews). We ate here several times both for lunch and dinner. The food was fantastic with beautiful presentation, moderate prices and gracious service . Highly recommend.

We were passing thru Bacalar on our way to Xpujil. We actually planned on lunch at another place but they weren't open until 2 pm. We wanted a spot on the lake and had some glowing reports to decide on this place. Beautiful resort and location. Lunch was outstanding. My wife had the Sopa de lima and Hicama salad and... More

this was the worst New Year's Eve dinner experience in my entire life. The 700 pesos menu was a cheap cafeteria level : potatoes not cooked enough, overcooked salmon, spaghetti topped with tomato concentrate, and cheese platter composed with sandwich cheeses slices and Babibel... As it was a buffet, everything was served in the same time : starters, hot plates,... More

Dear visitor, I am sorry to receive your unfortunate review on such a bad experience during your visit for New Year´s dinner. It is important for me to make the following comments: the $ 690 pesos you paid included: a 16% tax and 15% service charge, a great variety of options served buffet style without limitation of any amount, including...

The restaurant is gorgeous and romantic. It has a beautiful view, and it is in a quiet spot. The food was very good, and our waiter was very nice. The problem we had was when we arrived at the hotel. Rather than being greeted in a polite manner, we were told that non-hotel guests were not being seated at the... More

We were told by Steven who lives in Bacalar that this restaurant is the best so we sat on the table where we could enjoy the view and breeze of the Laguna Bacalar. We ordered "Sopa de lima", "Pescado al mojo de ajo" and "Tostadas de pollo". The soup was tasty and very hot and since in Yucatan it is... More

Hands down the best restaurant in the whole of Bacalar. Food and service are first rate. The prices are fair but expect to pay a little more. They have cloth table clothes and nice wood chairs. Not your plastic tables and chairs. You get the idea. I loved the food and ate there many times during my visit. You can... More

I was told by multiple sources that this is the best restaurant in town. That may still be so, because of the setting and the varied menu, but Bacalar isn't exactly a foodie destination. The ceviche was OK, but I've personally made ceviche at home about as good as this. The jicama salad with citrus sounded tasty, but the jicama... More
