Xaibe

This restaurant offers authentic Mayan food and is located near the entrance to the archeological site at Coba

Reviewed By andztar - Bruxelles, Belgio

We didn't want to go to the other restaurants that seemed too touristic and we felt like this one could be a nice place... yes, we were right!
Before ordering we asked if we could pay in Franks, because we ran out of Pesos and surprisingly they agreed. The food was fantastic, the cochinita pibil tasty and "sabrosa" and the guacamole... the best one we had during all our stay.
I highly suggest it, even the people are incredibly friendly!

Great place to eat just south of parking lot for Coba Ruins

Reviewed By Tcom_Master - Oklahoma

This is a strange restaurant. The Menu is in GERMAN and Spanish, with English subtitles. The food is GREAT. They have some German dishes as well as Mexican food. I LOVE the Chicken Pibil. It's a large hunk of chicken with some kind of Adobo Red sauce wrapped in a banana leaf. Rich and slightly spicy. Everything anyone with me has ever eaten there has received rave reviews so experiment a little.
I like to sit outside on the east side, overlooking the large lake at Coba. If you’re lucky, you might see a crocodile swim by.....Don't go swimming in the lake and avoid the small gift shop just to the north, buy the dock. They tie a dead croc up off the dock then try to charge you to walk out and see it!

La Piramide

Listed in Rough Guide 2011 for Yucatan. We ate here in Nov 2011 on our visit to the Tulum ruins and people deserve to know about it -- a great find right near the ruins.

Reviewed By Bexhazy - Cheshire, UK

We ate here for lunch as part of our day trip to Coba and was included in the price. We sat upstairs where we were presented with a buffet lunch. At the start of lunch there was only our coach trip there but it started to fill up with other coach parties. The lunch was nice - hot dishes to choose from chicken, pork, rice, spaghetti and salad choices. Seem to be the only place to cater for coach parties and a small restaurant downstairs.

Ji-Kanal

Reviewed By salcal73 - Elmhurst, Illinois

Our guide stopped here for lunch before visiting Coba ruins, and it's obviously a tourist stop. We had the buffet on the second floor, which overlooks a lake. The food was ok, typical local dishes. Since it was our first meal out in the countryside, we didn't realize that it could have been much better. For instance, the lime soup was quite watery compared to what we got in Merida.

Restaurante Chile Picante

Reviewed By MGG56 - Chapel Hill, North Carolina

We were staying in a hotel down the road and had dinner at Chile Picante. The restaurant and the town were both very quiet that evening. We had chicken nachos and chicken empanada's and both were very good. The service was above average, our waiter did a good job taking care of us. Overall a very pleasant experience and a good place to eat if you're in Coba.

Ki Hanal

Reviewed By Sally S - Wadsworth, Ohio

After visiting the Coba Maya ruins on a tour, our group had a dinner scheduled at this restaurant. The Seating is very open air. There is a little bar area in the corner. While part of our group swam in a cenote, my husband and I enjoyed a cold Dos Equis. I can't say that the staff were overly friendly but the beer was cold and the food was pretty good, buffet style for our groups. It appears that service is available for anyone so for a bite if visiting the ruins on your own, it's a safe bet. While dining we did get to enjoy a Maya performance of a ceremony and a small example of a "ball game."

El Faisan

Reviewed By Adrian H

Stopped for a quick bite after visiting Coba. My wife had excellent guacamole, the best on our trip while I had the poc chuc which was tasty but a little dry. Simple and clean and fine for a light lunch.

First restaurant on your right as you arrive in the town of Coba before the ruins. Some of the finest ceviche we have ever had & very inexpensive. Very friendly owners.

Hotel Y Restaurante Lol-Ha

Reviewed By moot - Tenbury Wells, United Kingdom

We stopped for a snack and a drink here, up on the second level overlooking the road, and the waiter was incredibly friendly and helpful. We were drawn in by the menu board outside offering Cochinita Pibil, pork marinated in lime, bitter orange and achiote which is a typical Mayan dish, and it was delicious- the waiter assured us it was a good choice as it was cooked over a genuine wood fire- and it was delicious, served with tortillas and avocado and rice too! To drink, we had a fresh coconut each for $25 pesos. A wonderful snack and very filling!

El Cocodrilo

Reviewed By Travel3Trio3 - Toronto, Canada

After the ruins we stopped for a late lunch. They are located just outside the entrance to Coba. Parking right in front. We all had fajita's thought they were excellent. Salsa to start with corn chips and the meals came with rice/beans. The service was also very good, very attentive, excellent English (our Spanish is very limited).
The price was really good for the quantity and quality! Our 3 lunch orders with beverages were less than 2 drinks at the beach bar later that evening!
