Good for: Local cuisine, Families with children
Dining options: Dinner, Late Night, Lunch, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: Excellent, tasty Mexican food of many types, including authentic Chiapaneca food. This restaurant is run by Zapatistas and there are several tiendas around the eating area selling products from Zapatista villages. Free WiFi, very good music (both live and recorded,) nice ambiance. The NY Times says it has a fixed price meal for $30 --- WRONG!! You can eat well for $ 10 and nearly as well for $ 7.00 USD.

“I loved this place, brilliant atmosphere, zapatista, vegan”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I stumbled upon this place on my first day in san cristobal and ordered the veggie burger, which was amazing, I got a starter of totopes and dip which I hadn't ordered but was complimentary and just sitting in the courtyard with all the artesanía shops around was brilliant, free wifi was available and you can learn lots about the zapatistas in this place. I went back again and again.

“Great ambience, good food”
Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

It's a nice yet simple place, suitable for families and informal dinner.
It's also a cultural centre, with Zapata's mementos. A few shops surround the dining courtyard.
Advice to kids: Zapata makes this a Coca cola free zone!! (don't ask for it, or the waitress will single you out!).
Try the Margarita instead (very good. Not suitable for kids)!

Food is generally good. Good price to quality ratio.
