Located in the neighborhood of Roma, this restaurant seemed to be very popular with locals. The food was great especially the Lime soup, and the Margarita's. The service was quick and helpful. We enjoyed our dinner with friends very much. Would definitely return.

Xel-ha looks like a simple restaurant, but it is quite good. Service is prompt, the food is good, the price is right.

This place has old-school waiters, very dedicated. It might not be the cheapest option, but it's worth it to try some of the more traditional Mexican food. Sopa de lima is great here, as well as panuchos de cazón, two of my favourites.

If you like Yucateca food, this is the place for you. It includes Cochinita Pibil. The "sopa de lima" is great. They also serve excellent steaks. I generally have a t-bone steak when we go there. Put this place on your list of places in...More
