Visited at the recommendation of Casa Marlene our hotel. What a lovely, appetising and un-complicated place. A little way out of the town centre but well worth the 5 minute walk required. Food was first rate and great value.

We enjoyed our meals at La Selva. It's casual, but nice. A lot of tourists, but also some locals. The food is tasty and the margaritas were rather good. It's also good value. I'd definitely go back.

Came to this restaurant after reading a review of it on a traveller’s blog. It was 8 minutes walk from where we were staying, El Meson del Marques and even in the rain it was definitely worth it. You walk through suburban streets, where you...More

Food was nothing to shout home about but decent and fairly cheap at 12 pesos for tostadas/sopes/panuchos. They missed off the cheese from my order because they were out.
