Good food with entertainment.

Conveniently located inside el panchan. The food here is pretty much the best you can find around in palenque. Not as cheap as other places but its worth it. Nights at don mucho's can get really entertaining. Sometimes they have a nice band and during the weekends they have an awesome fire show.

We had three meals at this restaurant. A Mexican dinner each was delicious, an average breakfast, and terrible Italian pasta. The place is really nice and the prices affordable. Staff is not so available.

What a brilliant evening! The food is incredible for a start, and you can choose from Italian dishes as well as traditional Mexican. All our group loved the food and the service was quick. The entertainment is the highlight - there were two bands until about 10pm and everyone got up and danced and then an amazing fire throwing group... More

What a fun night. Get here early – there were 8 of us and got a good table at 7pm, by 8 there was a queue for tables. There is a big menu which caters for all tastes and purses – among us we had steak, pizzas, fajitas, pasta. All were very good, drinks reasonably priced. Considering the large number... More

Best restaurant I've been to in or around Palenque, and I've been coming here for more than 10 years. Food is plentiful, tasty and safe. They use a special wash on the vegetables, which is nice. There are a few vegetarian options which is a lifesaver, though if you're vegan, try to stock up on some things in the market... More

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

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.

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
