In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age
of 38. Now, into their 3rd decade of this
financially independent lifestyle, they invite you

Comitan De Dominguez,
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli
Mexico has grown up over the years we have been visiting her. She has
garnered the covetous title of Pueblo Magico due to her allure and
various offerings to the residents and tourists who come to visit. Beautiful
weather, a clean, family-oriented town,
Plaza, and now, upscale restaurants to compete with other international
Why 500 Nights?
The title of this
restaurant and many restaurants and hotels like it who bear the same name, comes
from a romantic musical tale of unrequited love.
"I loved her so much, that
to forget her took 19 days and 500 nights."
Ungh! Gets you right
there, doesn't it?
500 Noches has a full bar,
a good selection of wines from around the world and various coffee drinks. Flat
screen TVs offer entertainment when there isn't live music being played.
Seating for a cozy group
The Cafe Bar has several
rooms from which to choose to meet your friends and while away the night.
You can have a bar
atmosphere or a cozy couch inside, or romantic seating with the moon and stars
Notice the coffee drink
menu on the chalkboard on the wall.
The Tapas menu
As you can see here, you
can purchase 6 tapas for 100Pesos (about $5.50USD) or 12 pieces for 190Pesos
Some of the choices are
pizza, stuffed croquettes, Portobello mushroom with Parmesan cheese and pesto,
shrimp tempura, a terrine of potatoes, bacon and parsley, and a little stuffed
ball of turkey ham with Gouda cheese and chipotle dressing.
Full meal menu
Listed are Chicken breast
several different ways, Rib eye steak 500 Noches, Arrachera, and Filet mignon.
Notice the Filete 19 Dias, another direct take from the song, 500 Nights.
Prices run from
100-320Pesos or from $5.50 to $18USD.
Chardonnay by the glass
We ordered two glasses of
Chardonnay at 70Pesos each (about $4USD) and decided to take our time ordering
our meal. We people-watched at the Plaza and enjoyed the live music coming from
500 Noches in the background.
Our tapas plate
We went for the tapas and
split them. We both decided that the Portobello mushroom with Parmesan cheese
and pesto was the best one; the tapas on the lower left.
and shrimp salad
We also ordered a grilled
chicken and shrimp salad with a Caesar dressing and split that as well. You can
see the wonderful grilling that was done and the whole salad tasted fresh and
delicious. The price was 120Pesos or almost $7USD.
The music was enchanting
and really filled the backdrop of our dining experience. We were sitting outside
on the Plaza and could hear this man's clear, eager voice through the speakers
they had placed there.
The sign on the mirror
behind him reads: There is no need for wings to take flight.
Everything is listed here
on our bill, with the tip figured in for us. It totals 572Pesos or about $32USD.
Certainly, for a romantic
evening or joining with friends for conversation and delicious food, 500 Noches
has much to offer. When visiting Comitan, make time to stop here.
