Early dinner

Had early dinner one night with party of 12. Most tried pasta or pizza and all dishes were really good, the pasta perfectly cooked. Good price quality but could improve the wine list.

I would recommend eating here if you are in the Palenque area. There are many options for food and drink, the vibe is fun, and the food & service is very good.

We went to Don Mucho because we wanted Pizza, and our first choice was closed on Wednesdays (!), so we found Don Muchos via TripAdvisor. Food was decent, the portions big. Prices decent, would give 3.5 stars if possible. I did not like my pizza very much, but that´s because of the mix of ingredients, tried another one which was... More

Don Mucho's is the "anchor" restaurant of the Panchan complex. They have a really good variety of food, much of which is Italian, at a decent price. In Mexico you can usually find better prices than at Don Mucho's, but there is only one other restaurant at Panchan to choose from and I saw very few people eating there. Regardless... More

Nice surroundings, great vibe, but the service could be better. Cocktails were good. Toilet completely unacceptabel: durty, no toilet paper and only one for the men in a place with a few hundred customers....

The biggest restaurant in El Panchan caters to tourists. The food is washed in clean water and prepared in sanitary conditions. I was pleased to see that the kitchen staff using the sink, soap & paper towel located just outside the kitchen. The menu is predominantly Italian (pizza/pasta) but you can get some (more kid friendly) cheeseburgers; they even have... More

The setting is attractive and lively, the food is good and pretty cheap for what you're getting. We were treated to a fire show, live music and salsa dancing and had a really fun evening. However unfortunately the service is terrible - so terrible we found it quite funny. Don't be surprised if you have a long wait, and the... More
