The tone is casual, but the menu interesting and varied, very well prepared by a versatile chef. The high old ceiling, rough room, broken-tile table tops are charming, as is the wall decoration. We had a wonderful young waiter who, having lived in the US,...More

Just across the plaza and a few meters away from church you will find Los Placeres. The restaurant is medium size, very nice decoration, very good service but most importantly the food is extremely well prepared, with various alternatives and very nice flavor. It is...More

Right across from the Zocalo and the impressive Augustinian church sits this great little restaurant. Go into the way back to sit under the arbor and dine al fresco on the outdoor patio. Cobblestones can be a little tricky for the chair legs, so be...More

My partner and I enjoy eating here. They have delicious trout dishes prepared fresh. It's a nice place to enjoy a meal and drinks either in their garden seating area or inside the cafe where you can look out into the zocalo.

The place looks charming and the food (mexican) is delicious. If possible ask for a table outside, at the garden. Very romantic!

Malinalco seems to be open only at weekends. On a Thursday night all the restaurants close at 6 or 7 pm, so we had to eat early. Los Placeres is an attractive restaurant on the main square (Zocalo) and has an attentive and well trained...More

We went to have lunch yesterday. Busy, but mistakes and lack of quality are inexcusable. My son and I have food intoxication, the doctor said it was lack of hygiene when handling food. Also, they served other tables that arrived well over 30 minutes later...More

Situated in the main plaza with a magnificent view of the archeological site this is a relaxed easy going (dogs welcomed, kids menu) restaurant. The menu celebrates Mexican flavors with international flair e.g Nopales (edible cacti) with hibiscus fand zuccini flower. Don't miss the seasonal "chiles en nogada". Decor persues to preserve it's old house setting creatively. Great music, attentive service. Los Placeres also has a gallery with art exhibitions.Opened from thursday to sunday. We offer catering service for weddings and special events.
