We had an excellent evening watching Mayan dance displays after enjoying a lovely meal. We eat on an open air balcony and our group were all complementary about their meal choices which were a selection of chicken and steak dishes. Service was great , including for reasons unknown to us a free bucket of local beers.

Our experience is limited to visiting the restaurant. Each time we enjoyed the rooftop terrace's 360-degree views of the entire city. The service is excellent, and the food is delicious.
