A great experience and my first introduction to food of the Yucatan. This seems to be a family-owned restaurant that takes a lot of pride in food that is not made ahead of time. A great place to see where local people might eat for a special night out. The beef stew, Chicken Mole I had were both very good.... More

We went to this restaurant the last two nights of our trip and it was superb. The service was amazing and the food was super good. If you are planning to go there, make sure to not miss the Spanish or mayan coffe (maybe others as well). You will experience a show of fire!

This restaurant is located on a narrow street with limited near site parking in downtown Cancun across from the Catholic church and next door to La Habucheula. Service was excellent and the wait staff very attentive, but not overbearing. Good live Spanish guitar music was played in the bar area. The primary food choices are Mayan, Yucatan or Mexican. The...

This area of Cancun is considered "downtown," and not in the Zona Hoteleria. It may take some looking to find it. We discovered it about 30 years ago when we ate at the nearby La Habicuela (The Green Bean), which is still there. Interestingly, our cab driver back then could not understand why we wanted to go to this area,... More

The lunch buffet is perfect for experiencing regional Yucatán cuisine unlike basic Mexican food. The buffet is all you can eat, the variety is huge and the service is very attentive. Even the desserts are different and uniquely Yucatán

My husband and I throughly enjoyed the food and service at Labna. The waiter was very attentive, the live background music was soothing and the food was absolutely fresh. Go to Labna for a real taste of refreshing Mayan cuisine. Chicken mole and the steaks in a trio of sauces are particularly recommended.

We went with a large group and got the waiter's recommendation of appetizers. For a main, I had the pork pibil. I wanted to like this place more, but really I was not inspired by the food.

This is a good restaurant that serves who seen typical of the Yucatán peninsula. That's the only type of food being offered but it's perfectly prepared and presented. This is a very good restaurant of typical cuisine that is worth a visit and better than other ones available in Cancun that offer similar dishes.

We are an operator of restaurants we admire the culture, customs and this land, its people and their way of being. In our restaurant you can enjoy genuine dishes, an interesting atmosphere and service with typical warmth of our race. In addition to the flavor of these exotic lands, home to one of the most amazing civilizations of mankind, that for more than 10,000 years ago populate this region and hunting, gathering and agriculture learned to survive giving rise to a unique cuisine that many years later with the influence and contributions of conquerors modern cuisine that is admired is created. We work with the emerging recipes "vox populi" ie the housewives, from every corner of the peninsula, from which arise the different dishes with different ingredients and flavors.
