    Great value for your money. Tasty food. If you, like us, dumbly decide to chow down on a habañero pepper the staff will gladly help with a glass of milk which shows of the excellent service.

    Very nice place! Typical Mexican food! Hand made tortillas, panuchos, you can order a shark in banana leaves and a lot of different dishes! Recommend to try Vampiros cocktail(for those who like spicy)

    For all the English speakers, this place is excellent. We ate the meal for 2 (back page) with mixed meats - was divine. The people are lovely, service amazing, Chaya margarita delicious!

    Try as many margaritas (Margarita de Chaya and Jamaica with Mezcal to start) as you can. Oh yeah, and the food is amazing too!

    This place totally lived up to its reviews, the food is spectacular. It was full and we had to be put on the waiting list but the service is really fast so we got a table in about 20 min.

    Delicious food at a good price, and really friendly staff. You can see the lady who makes tortillas fresh all night. Me gusta mucho la chaya.

    Very crowded and touristy but place. Interesting menu but a little to "experimental" for me.Ladies dressed up on traditional costume baking tortillas and posing for pics..

    Cocktails are cheap however not very much alcohol is added. Would still return for the food alone!

    I love this place! They have the authentic local food, it reminds me of my grandmas food. I would highly recommend you to try the option of "4 typical dishes" of the menu and drink "Agua de Chaya"

    Service is too fast, so avoid any eye-contact with the waiters if you want to finish your course properly. Food is good, I think...

    Don't know why everybody seems to love this place. We were very disappointed: very touristic (a menu with pictures is always a sign for caution), food isn't that great and neutral service.

    Not worth the wait! Food was just ok, nothing special.
