Very nice setting . Nice waiter. And the food was good . Pollo en mole deliss el quesillo double milk deliss. The tortillas come right out of the "fogon" , El pollo en cacahuate not good! For dessert we had chayote with Dulce de leche mmmmmmmm . I would definitely recommend it.

The best food in San Cristobal. The environment, service and experience were top in my trip. We came back more than once. Comer y visitar este lugar es una experiencia especial.

Great local cuisine, waiter dressed authentic Mexican Clothes, food was average but service was good, they also had a children's play area for our son with a young girl watching him, the nanny appreciated that so she could enjoy her meal as well. I will return for the fresh corn tortilla and traditional flavors

I did not like this restaurant. Service was really bad and the food was not good. There are many options at San Cristobal de las Casas, so do not make my mistake and try another restaurant.

The restaurant is just off cathedral square. The dinner was very good with a varied menu of local dishes. We had been advised to request a special desert by our guide and although not on the menu it was made available. We found the food quite delicious and the staff very attentive. Happy to recommend it.

Not all dishes in the menu were available. The food was not tasty at all, in terms of flavor and presentation. The atmosphere was ok, with local music and folkloric dances. I would not recommend it.
