Taberna De Los Frailes In Valladolid
Posted 04 February 2011 - 03:16 PM
We checked into my favorite little boutique (I love that word "boutique") hotel, Casa Quetzal. It is run by a lovely woman named Judith who is the perfect hostess. I love going there. Please check out the website: www.casa-quetzal.com they serve a lovely breakfast made to order.
After checking in we wondered across the street to view the San Bernardino de Siena Ex-convent. It was the time of day where the shadows were long and a photographers dream. My friend is a photographer and was in her glory. The pictures are stunning.
My buddy old pal, Coyote-Man had recommended a restaurant to dine at: Taberna de los Frailes. It is across the street from San Bernadino. Every thing (the hotel, convent, restaurant) is within walking distance of each other.
Memorize the name Taberna de los Frailes. Burn it into your mind. Tattoo it on your arms. Remember it and GET THERE! It was without a doubt the very best dining experience I (and my friends) have had in the Yucatan. From the incredible location, atmosphere, presentation, table settings, as well as the perfect service, not to mention THE FOOD. Ah, Senora was transported to Paradise. We ordered two rounds of mojitos and each ordered a different appetizer. Who knew grilled watermelon with melted cheese was sooo good? Everyone at our table was rolling their eyes in uncontrollable ecstasy. Main courses were served. Not a morsel left on anyones plates. Usually I have no room for desert, but everything was so delicious, we HAD to try the deserts! Again, ecstacy. Everything was topped off with coffe or cappuchino's. After over 2 1/2 hours we managed to roll ourselves past the cenote fenced in across from the pretty bar onto the beautifully landscaped terrace. I can't zip my capri's and I have no regrets. I highly recommend this establishment and look forward to hear what anyone else has to say about it. I would drive out there for the day just to eat there. Next time I will buy one size up in capri's to be better prepared for a meal there. If I'm lying may lightning strike me!
Thanks C-Man for the recommendation. Tell your Chichen friends we love the new place! If our paths cross in Valladolid we will gladly treat you at Taberna de los Frailes!
