“The best steak in Copán Ruinas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

We stayed in Copán for three nights at the end of January and ate at Mi Tio twice as the first night we had there was incredibly good! We ordered the meat platter for two between three of us after the charming son of the owner very honestly told us a platter for four would be too much for the three of us. He was right as the two person meal was more than enough; there were three steaks, two chicken breast, two sausages and three pork chops along with two baked potatoes, homemade garlic and coriander sauce and homemade chili and garlic oil. It was an amazing meal and the meat was cooked just as requested. It was exactly the same standard when we went back the second night!

The family are very sweet and the son and daughter both speak great English. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable, if you fancy (as my boyfriend did) you can play a game of chess before, during or after dinner.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Copán!

“Delicious Food with a Friendly Family Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Mi Tío specializes in Uruguayan style grilled meats, but they offer dishes for most other tastes as well. Owner Dunia and her two delightful teenagers (who speak good English) have created a social place where you can enjoy more than just eating. The decor is not fancy, but the combination of delicious meals, affordable prices and family atmosphere is unbeatable for us. We travel to Copán Ruinas every year, and find ourselves eating at Mi Tío most evenings. Take-out service is also available.
