We ate dinner at this restaurant whilst staying a couple of days in Palenque visiting the ruins and Agua Azul. Although wanting a "night out" we weren't expecting much as this is Palenque not Cancun.

Restaurant La Selva is built as if it is a Mayan ruin. Very nice and interesting atmosphere. The food was fabulous. My husband had medallions de robola (sea bass) and I had a camerones brochette. Both were delicious and the best food we've had in Palenque. Highly recommended for "fussy" eaters (my husband).
