Ingenio de San Marcos is a historic museum and restaurant

The place has a unique atmosphere. The tables are set around and within a museum of silver mining equipment. The food is freshly prepared from a menu with some variety.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Interesting restaurant located in an old silver refinery nicely restored that makes a pleasant atmosphere. Menu with many choices and food well prepared. The negative aspects are the service inattentive and a bit slow and the freezing temperature, there was only a tiny gas heater by another table, while the stove by our table was fracasada!

And for food: trout with garlic sauce (very good) and... More
