This restaurant is right next to our hotel and we've been there twice already. The Mexican cuisine they offer is very good and it's extremely cheap. What's more, I thought for the price that the portions would be small, but they're actually huge. It's definitely worth visiting if you're in Palenque.

We ate at Las Tinajas twice while visiting Palenque. We were very pleased with the friendly and attentive service, large potions, and good prices.

They're incredible slow and the food quality is not good. I'm mexican and I can tell you I've been to many restaurants like this one and none of them are as bad as these one.

We came by a mexican recommendation, we were more than 1hour waiting just for some quesadillas and a camaron cocktail, basic meals... There was non stop people coming and singing, selling things and very noisy. We were next to another couple that came also from a local recommendation. We beleice its the only one they recommend dispite the poor service.

Awful service The restaurant was nearly empty and it took us half hour to get our drinks and 1 1/2 hr to get our food Poor Taste on the food But there isn't much to choose from. Chiapas is a beautiful place they should really work on the food

People are often rather nasty about Palenque town. I found it very typical of the sort of place that, as the result of hard effort and "development", has managed to pull itself out of the poverty mire, largely of course due to tourisim. There are lots of interesting little shops and the bands play in the square at weekends. Locals... More

Choice in palenque town is pretty limited, so a lot of people end up here. It's nothing special, but it is fine. Just don't go alone, you couldn't possibly finish even one dish!

But very good food. Nice vibe too. Service could be much better. We liked the shrimps, the chicken, the nachos and the lemonade

We decided to try Las Tinajas for breakfast before our trek to the ruins of Palenque and we were really more than satisfied with the service and the portions of the food. My daughter ordered a fruit salad that easily fed both her and myself. I ordered eggs and hot cakes that filled my plate to overflowing. The hot chocolate... More

food portion was huge, my chicken order included a whole bird, impossible to eat it all , each order is at least good for 2 people, service is mediocre and it takes time as they cook everything to order.
