Fodor's Review

This "Tavern of the Monks" sits above Cenote Sis Ha and overlooks the ancient stonework of Convent of San Bernardino de Siena dating from 1552. Despite its historic location, the restaurant is equally known for its extraordinary Mayan cuisine and Yucatecan dishes like tikin xic (grilled snapper in annatto sauce), pavo en relleno negro (turkey medallions stuffed with pork and hard boiled egg in Mayan pepper sauce), and pechuga en pipian (roasted chicken

in pumpkin-seed sauce). For something light, try the grilled watermelon salad or sikil pak, a dip made from roasted pumpkin seeds, tomatoes, and Mayan spices. The three separate dining areas—garden lounge, stone cocktail bar, and palapa dining room—give the place an elegant and modern feel while still adhering to traditional Mayan architecture.
