La Habichuela

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by ColettePenland on January 16, 2005

Year after year we return to this authentic Mexican restaurant with a group of about 15. Located in downtown Cancun and a far different outside atmosphere than the resort section of the city, you would never find this place if you weren't looking for it. But just wait until you step inside...

We always request to eat out on the back patio. This place is walled in and covered by a canopy of foliage. White lights keep the place illuminated but not too bright. We sit at iron tables.

My favorite part of the dinner is to watch the skilled and friendly waiters with their presentation of the coffee drinks. Ask for one of the many after dinner/coffee drinks (with alcohol) and they create a fire-fountain while they pour the alcohol in to the cups. It's truly something you have to see performed.
