Loved this place. Go now to the original location in Centro, you won't be disappointed. I have been going there for over 20 years, and this year it celebrated its 40th anniversary.

Was looking forward to returning. Sorry to say they are no longer open. Their other restaurant downtown is open. Just a little further from the Hotel Zone. Rating based on previous visit.

I don't believe they have a children's menu. Menu may be a little spicy for children.

Hello!!! We have an appetizer of 3 small tamales. 1 with lobster, 1 with shrimp and 1 with duck. They are a little different from traditional chicken tamales. But very tasty!!!

La Habichuela Sunset Surpasses your expectations. Welcome: A unforgettable sunset awaits you. They say its a museum turned into a restaurant. Aside from its bold and modern arquitechture, the ambiance is based on the mayan culture with the intent of giving our customers a unique experience surrounded by masks of ancient kings, a 9 meter mayan column from floor to ceiling and a 30 meter hand carved kukulkan wooden snake. Our open garden area next to the lagoon allows you to dine with the stars and the moon. But our biggest pride being our exquisite dishes, from traditional yucatecan recipes to sophisticated caribbean/mexican fusions. We have a vast variety of international wines as well as national. We follow and maintain our founders philosophy of providing prompt and detailed service since 1977. Dont miss our mayan rituals shows during the week that will transport you in time to the ancient mayan civilization.
