Yaxche Review

One of Playa's top tourist spots has reproductions of stelae (stone slabs with carved inscriptions) from the region's ruins. Mayan dishes such as cochinita pibil (roasted pork wrapped in a banana leaf) are superb, and you can finish your meal with a Café Maya (made from Kahlúa, brandy, vanilla, and Xtabentun, the local liqueur flavored with anise and honey). Watching the waiter pour and light a Café Maya from its silver demitasse is almost as seductive as the drink itself. For a meal with a view, request a table on the second floor.
