“So good we went back!”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

Such good food, such good prices and such good attentive service.

The stuffed zucchini is delicious, smooth with great cheese. Stuffed potatoes the best we have ever had. (Not vegetarians) Both were served with generous salad. asked for tortillas instead of pan and we did not have to mention it twice! Very relaxed setting close to the attractions and not in the middle of it!

“when you want great chicken.....”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

In my many trips to Chiapas, I always see the vendors roasting chicken by the side of the road, and it looks so good. I asked the owner of the house where to go for this chicken in San Cristobal. She suggested this restaraunt...a lot more pleasant than sitting by the roadside. The food was amazing, everything I had hoped. The place ISNA small restaraunt, maybe 7 tables. It is decorated with local historic photos. The service was great, formless than a similar type dinner at home we fed 3, allnof us full & happy.

“Small restaurant with style and good food in the heart of town”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Whether you want to eat vegetarian, pasta, meat, fish, desinfected salads: here you have a good choice. The owner will also adapt to your wishes. While your meal gets prepared you can and probably will crave for the whole wheat-bread with butter and some sauces. The owner of this restaurant has learned during 17 years in a restaurant run by a Frenchmen, who had been trained in the art of cooking in Paris and Italy.
More is not to say....

“Simple, good value”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Reasonably priced, typical mexican food. My kids had grilled chicken and arranchara. They cut the meat up and ate it with a tortilla like a soft taco. My wife and I both had chicken mole (mole negro) which was very tasty. There was nothing fancy about the place, but the food was good and the price was right.

“Great food, reasonably priced”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

The Maya Pakal is like the restaurants I remember in Mexico from 30 years ago. No themes or glitz, just good quality, good tasting food at half the prices you pay in most hotels and restaurants that cater to tourists. It is conveniently located one-half block off the zocalo on Madero Street. The breakfast menu has great variety and is delicious. The lunch and dinner menu also has lots of choices, including vegetarian selections. Over our week's stay in San Cristobal, we tried a few other places, but kept going back to Maya Pakal. The service is friendly and caring.
