Really, really good food. Cochinita pibil was the best. Great little courtyard. Nice and cool in the heat.

“Exellent Mexican restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

Great typical restaurant in the town square. We had lunch in the patio with a fountain in the center. Cool place and windy (perfect on hot days) very friendly staff and great food.
Gazpacho, guacamole, tortillas and chicken were very good!
Beware of the spicy sauce served with the tacos, it's really hot!

“We got sick eating at El Meson del Marques--I would avoid it”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Toward the end of our trip we decided to "treat ourselves" and splurged at this highly overrated establishment. After eating out all through the Yucatan, we got sick here, on one of our most expensive meals. My son and daughter had traveler's diarrhea and fevers. There was no question as to where it had been contracted because the only other food we had eaten that day had been packaged. We weren't even brushing our teeth in local water. No ice. We are veteran third world travelers. We got sick here without question. Furthermore, the hostess was so incredibly rude, didn't even make eye contact. The entire staff at this hotel is pretentious. We ordered two totally different entrees and they both came swimming in the exact same sauce. There was too much foot traffic through the dining area (it is the only way to get to your room from that side of the block!) We rented a room here as well and had nothing but a miserable experience all around. The price was not as quoted online. The Super Deluxe room looked out on a tarred roof top. The soap dish fell of the wall. The toilet paper couldn't be reached from the toilet. The interior was cheap and pre-fabbed, nothing like the Mexican tile you see in the lobby and restaurant. I could go on and on. Go to the Hotel Aurora. You'll have a much better experience at literally 1/3 the price, and just 2 or 3 blocks from the square.

“Absolutely Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

If you have a chance to visit this restaurant at night it is a must. The restaurant has an incredible atmosphere.... the dining area is centered around a candle lit garden!!!

The cocktails are great!!! Unfortunately we didn't get to eat here but deeply regret it because the food looked great and was half the price of its competition taberna de los frailes and far more atmospheric.

THIS CAN'T BE MISSED!
