Popped in for a couple of cold beers while in the town and went back in the evening for food, very helpful and friendly staff. Ask about why the restaurant is called its name.

A nice, local, economical place to dine on typical Yucatecan food. My husband and I have eaten there many times, especially when we first moved to Izamal.

Our most expensive & worst experience in Yucatan. Arrived around 9pm in the restaurant, our dinner was rythmed by the 'ding' of our microwaved food. A shame. Tasteless dishes. An insult to mexican gastronomy. Next time please advise your customer when the kitchen is closed.
