Our hotel recommended this restaurant as a pleasant/safe lunch stop on the way back to Mayakoba from Chichen Itza. We were greeted by hospitable hostesses that sat us in the beautiful courtyard. Our lunch and drinks were delicious, served quickly, and the price was very affordable. The courtyard setting is also a peaceful and relaxing respite from the crowds of... More

Rich exquisite soups, authentic Mayan dishes, very attentive service. Loved the guacamole, prepared at the table, and of course the margaritas. Inexpensive for the quality.

I drove my family to Chichen-Itza and then took them to Valladolid on the way back to Playa del Carmen. The city of Valladolid is beautiful and clean. I chose this restaurant because it is located in downtown. The building is beautiful! I wish we had stayed there for at least two nights. The people were so friendly and the... More

My husband & I ventured out from our resort in N.Playa del Carmen to visit Valladolid for the day. We've been coming to Cancun for the past 28 years and enjoy our trips down Riviera Maya. Our trip took us about 1.5 hours. We walked the town for awhile & decided to have lunch here. What a beautiful setting. We... More

to me the meson feels like the restaurant every single colonial town in Mexico has, famous due to its location but lack in flavor and ambiance, just a traditional expirience in a regular place, not saying don't go, food is decent, the place is clean, and the staff are nice and friendly but it's nothing special if you ask me

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

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.
