More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Families with children, Local cuisine
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast, Dinner, Lunch, 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.

“Favourite Restaurant/Cafe in San Cristobal”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The atmosphere here is the best, you sit in a covered posada, surrounded by co-operative shops. The service is excellent, attentitive and friendly, the menu has tonnes of options, and everything is tasty and very well-priced. Coffee is good, but try the frappuccino! The bathrooms have toilet seats. There are vegetarian options - vegan could be difficult, but probably not impossible.

“A Varied Selection at Good Prices”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years and always an enjoyable place. It is very popular and can be very busy. Its a great spot to bring your laptop and browse the internet while enjoying a coffee or something from the large menu. You will never feel rushed even if you spend hours at a table, which many do . I dont find their comida corrida to be a great value but I find many other good items on their varied menu. Good value, good food, nice atmosphere.

“Loved the place, though service is tad slow on the second visit”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

There is a great selection of food in this restaurant that is fitted into a large, covered courtyard. We had the comida corrida (set menu) the first time and it worked out well. Portions were just nice, and food came out quickly. However, the second time all we ordered was a soup and a salad, and they must have forgotten our order because it took quite long (didn't help that we had to go back to hotel to catch a flight). But overall service is nice. The pizza by the slice we thought was average.

It is surrounded by artisan shops that support the EZLN cause. Even if you are not into the revolutionary stuff, they have nice handicraft for you to pick up.

“Okay place to eat”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We ate here one of our three nights in town. The food was adequate but nothing special. We had the pasta Adentro and bruschetta. Both were okay but nothing special. There are better places in town.

“Delicious food in a very nice environment”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We liked the food and the service, there is a large of variety of dishes with very good prices, they have breakfat, meal and dinner, the waitress are very nice and they include the tip in the ticket with a small note saying that if you dont want to paid the tip to remove it, but frankly they deserve the tip
