Staff very sweet like everyone in Michoacan. Maybe it was due to mid afternoon or maybe it's just how they do things at Dona Paca. Asked for ice in my water but didn't arrive. Asked for milk w. coffee and got cold condensed milk (usually get steamed milk in Mexico). Coffee warm not hot. Soup and salad were OK. Not... More

For no apparent reason, this restaurant ranked surprisingly low, yet turned out to be our best dining experience during our five days in Patzcuaro! We ate at three other top rated restaurants, pretty much disappointed, in that their ingredients, preparation, flavors, all failed to come close to this one. The only complaint, if any, would have been plating which could... More

I have been here many times over many years, particularly for brunch. The food is still good, but used to be excellent. For example, we ordered a light breakfast for our daughter consisting of yoghurt, fruit and cereal, and the cereal was a choice between fruit loops and sugary corn flakes. This would not have been the case in the... More

Thanks for sending your comments about our Restaurant and we appreciate that you like our food, as we understand you had a problem with the variety of cereals. Unfortunately nowadays the variety of cereals individually packed in Mexico is limited. We think is better to have the cereals individually packed than having big boxes open for a lot of time....

I thought it would be a tourist, expat kind of place (like Lupita's). But the food was so much better, it was quiet, service was excellent. I will definitely be back. On the square, too.

This restaurant offers excellent versions of typical Patzcuaro fare served in a beautiful room with first-rate service. I've always enjoyed meals here. And prices are very reasonable. It's part of a hotel but, unlike many hotel restaurants, this one is something to write home about -- in a good way. And it's located on Patzcuaro's Plaza Grande.

Attentive staff, historical setting either inside the Hotel Mansion Iturbide or outside on the Patio facing the Plaza Principal. The Breakfast menu is extensive and is delicious. I really enjoyed the fresh fruit plate each morning and the delicious homemade whole wheat croissant each morning. I wish I had tried a dinner there...I think it would be delicious as well.
