We had lunch here and found the food very fresh and flavorful. Many traditional favorites and attentive service. The garden is beautiful and I would have liked to have been able to linger there longer, but we had to press on. The portion size was very large, and the prices reasonable. Overall, it was a very fine experience.

We are here for dinner last night and were thoroughly impressed. The appearance of the restaurant is beautiful, set in a well lit and well presented courtyard. The menu was extensive and everything was good value. We shared the nachos to begin with topped with local sausage and cheese. Next we shared the Poc Chuc and Cochinita Pibil two typical... More

We loved the beauty of this ancient house and the patio is fantastic. Really nice atmosphere. But the food is not that good. We ate much better in other small restaurants for a lot less. My cocktail was not good, a lot of ice and water, no taste. The guacamole prepared at our table was good and fun to watch.... More

Borders the main square. Nice semi outdoor style seating in a courtyard setting. Had Yucatan pork meal, no regrets. Spanish coffees get made table side by a specialist with lots of flair. One of the nicer more spendy restaurants in the city but coming from Portland OR I thought it was still inexpensive but not street taco price level if... More

Ate here twice, we enjoyed it so much! Many of the restaurants in Valladolid get inundated with tour groups on their way back from Chichen Itza, however El Meson del Marques was mercifully an oasis of calm. We had a traditional Mexican meal in the evening, and good old chicken and chips as a late lunch the next day after... More

We'd just seen the ruins at El Balam and El Meson del Marques had been recommended as the best place to stop for lunch in Valladolid. I couldn't agree more. The location on the Plaza Principal was perfect for a walk after lunch. The historic building was a fantastic setting for a sunny luncheon, and the food itself was simple... More
