Go and linger over dinner

I ate very well here. Delicous food in a beautiful courtyard, with attentive (but not pushy) staff. Excellent value for money, and so much better than anything I'd had in Playa Del Carmen.

Look I agree the atmosphere can't be beat, in a colonial style hotel in the beautiful courtyard. But food was just so-so, small portions trying to be artsy but for the price very little food. Also for having a 6 pages menu, they could not accommodate us to make my daughter beef tacos (yes seriously just beef tacos, nothing crazy).... More

We stopped at Meson del Marques for lunch and got a nice table in the courtyard. I asked our server what he recommended and without hesitation he said Cochinita Pibil as it was a specialty of the Yucatan region. He could not have been more right, it was absolutely delicious! The slow cooked, braised and then shredded pork was served... More

This restaurant offers some tasty Mayan dishes at an affordable price point, in a central location (right in the central square of Valladolid), and with a pleasant atmosphere in an interior garden. We ordered two entrees off of the "traditional Mayan" menu and two drinks for a total of around $40USD. The portions were very generous. The menu also offers... More

We stay at Meson del Marques and it totally gives you the feeling of Mexico 100 years ago. A very nice colonial place with a pool (for my little son), a patio in the middle (typical) and a great restaurant with candlelight and very good local food well presented. Just don't go during carnival time, the main square is in... More

On our way to Akumal for our stay we stopped for lunch at this beautiful place. A very good choice. My husband ordered a Mayan dish that looked like a type of stew but he wished he would have ordered what I did after tasting it... the Swiss enchiladas... So good!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel and when we looked at the menu we were happy to see some vegetarian options. Our server spoke english and was able to explain some of the regional dishes and make recommendations. The food was great and reasonably priced. The restaurant is located in an enclosed courtyard and every so often... More

Our family had a really superb lunch, nice service, and enjoyed watching the tortillas get made (& brought directly to our table!) Beautiful setting. Cochinita Pibil was out of this world!
