I had the Mexican shrimp. Shrimp with green pepper, tomato and sauce. It came with rice. The size of the dish was good. I read a lot of comments here about the size, but I think it was good for one person. I saw some other dishes coming out, they look bigger. So there is more food in meat and... More

Service was fast and the food we ordered for lunch was all very good with the exception of the hamburger ordered for my 4yo. There were more vegetables in it than beef and therefore was not eaten. Given the cheap price we just paid for it and left it on the plate. Probably not a great place to take a... More

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
