Food was ok maybe some things better than what we had, a bit pricey, but it is in middle of the jungle. Overall would go again as it was nice to hear nature and the music was really good live band.

Music on a stage (salsa), fire dance at 11pm and a great atmosphere. Buzzy & fun. Food surprisingly good. Nice service. Nice mix of locals & tourists. Highly recommended

We had a hard time finding this restaurant after reading reviews here on TA. We had a tablet with us and I kept googling to find a description as to its exact location but we kept turning around at the Palenque ruins toll station without looking to the left right at the toll booth. The food was good the beer... More

We were a table of seven and barely anyone was able to eat what had been served(pizzas, pasta). The dishes were too large, almost over portioned. Their daily live music is entertaining at best. The only plus was the wild setting.

This is the best restaurant in El Panchán if you stay in the area and dont want to go to downtown. Good food with cheap price and big portion. Pasta with fresh mushrooms is my favorite, you have to try it! those mushrooms tasted so fresh and delicious!

If staying close to the National park entrance, this is a great place to have a meal. Dinner the best choice as they have live music from 7pm. The restaurant is in a cluster of buildings that you can explore, with cheaper options further into the bush. The food was good, and I'd happily go again, though not stand out.... More

Besides the epic hotel area, this restaurant offers fair prices with excellent quality. Delicious breakfast and very good live music during night hours.

Nice and good vibes in Don Mucho. All the food I tried there was very good (cream of the day (chayote), calzone, fresh pesto pasta!!) Very good option close to the Ruins. Live music starts around 7pm. Quick and very good service. Fresh bread, fresh pasta, a lot of choice on the menu. A bit pricy (especially the cocktails) but... More
