We ate here several times. Service was fantastic, food was excellent. All fresh all good. Out of 6 different meals we were never disappointed. Coffee was flavourful. Price was always reasonable. We will definitely come back the next time we visit Playa.

Ate here 12/6. Had a great plate of huevos rancheros, served with a bread basket to sop the leftover sauce, and coffee. Total? 85 pesos! I'm staying in Club Yebo Hotel next door, so very convenient. Try them...you will be happy you did.

The food and service here is perfect. It's like you going home for a cooked meal. It's away from the touristy places which is what we want. I want to experience this cultural first hand and this place gives it to you!
