We ate breakfast here three times this trip, and our attentive waiter remembered I was the tea drinker and my husband the coffee drinker, so on our third breakfast, he came to the table with a pot of water and tea bags, and a pot of coffee and breakfast menus! A truly lovely touch! You will have a hard time... More

Doña Paca is one of my favorite places to dine. There is no finer traditional food in Pátzcuaro. The professional members of the staff don’t “hover” (thank goodness!), but they are always there when you need them; the restaurant is impeccably clean; the food is always right on; right outside is the famous Plaza Vasco de Quiroga. What else could... More

Patzcuaro doesn't have a lot of good restaurants, but Dona Paca is one of the best. The regional Michoacan cuisine includes several good fish dishes, chiles en nogada, chicken mole and other specialties. Desserts are better than average.

Good regional food, including a great mole sauce. Our room came with full breakfast, which we very much enjoyed. Delicious omelettes, a nice plate of papaya, and a basket of what seemed to be freshly baked rolls and biscuits. Our only complaint was the coffee, which was extremely weak. But Patzcuaro abounds in coffee shops,so finding a good latte, expresso,... More

My wife and I spent two days in Patzcuaro - ate at Dona Paca, Lupita and La Trattoria - and found Dona Paca to be the best one of the three. Very tasty food, a good (somewhat formal compared to the others) atmosphere and reasonable service. Patzcuaro doesn't seem to have any great restaurants, but Dona Paca was good food... More
