I still think of this restaurant. We were on our way back from Chichen Itza and stopped in here for lunch. If I were to visit Chichen Itza again, I would plan on spending a night here. We loved the restaurant. My daughter still wants to go back just for the soup. My favorite part was the art and architecture.... More

The inviting courtyard lured us in and the lonely planet claims that it's the best restaurant in town, but it was a little expensive and the food was nothing special. The chayitas were delicious but the papadzules fairly flavourless - we'd had better for less money the day before elsewhere. The worst part was when all the fans in our... More

Eaten at the restaurant twice in the last 2 evenings. First night service was okay and food was not too bad. They added something onto the bill which we did not have and it took a lot of time to have it removed. The waiter was checking with numerous different people which made us feel a little bit like frauds.... More

We decided to visit Valladolid for a late lunch after visiting Chichen Itza in a hire car. We stumbled across this restaurant by chance and we were very happy with our choice. The seating is arranged around a delightful colonial courtyard, and offers a perfect cooling setting to escape the midday sun. We chose simple traditional dishes such as fajitas... More

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
