Description: The food in Chiapas represents the fusion of the social history of the original peoples ofMesoamerica and the cultures of other continents. In the Most representative dishes always perceive the fusion of cultures that arises since 1528 and also, in tradition and party where the cultural resistance and the indigenous worldview persist. Among the most representative of the cuisine of San Cristóbal isfind the stuffed chiles in saffron sauce, mole or roasted pigtail, bread soup, chipilín cream, sausages and cold meats in addition to local drinks with chia, pozol or tascalate without missing the organic coffee and delicious Xocolate. Our proposal is recreated in this dance of flavors that have made the preference of diners who visit our Belil Restaurant recognizing the hospitality with which they we receive each client and we foster social interconnection, that is why in each visitor we see him as a tourist in solidarity can be interested in experiences with social meaning

Genuine Chiapas flavour, great hospitality, the service is carefully looked after by the owner itself, he was supervising service at all the tables and suggesting dishes for a best experience (and it was!). A real gem in terms of local food. Try the tamales de chipilin, chipilin cream, and for the drinks the Tazcalate Maya!

We ate dinner here and were very pleased to discover that our waiter knew a lot about the food and also it's history. He also spoke english, which was very helpful for us since we only speak a little bit spanish. The food was delishious. Would visit again.

We truly enjoyed our experience at Belil. The employees were very helpful explaining in detail about the different foods and ingredients as well as having extensive knowledge about the items for sale in their shop. We ordered the Barrio Cokleto, Jovel Antiguo, Ciudad Real and more. All dishes were delicious! We definitely recommend Belil to anyone traveling through San Cristóbal for authentic cuisine. Thank you!

After finding the restaurant next door closed we came here. The food is traditional Chiapas cuisine. There are artesinal curios to buy. We all liked our food. I had the Sopa de Pan and the Chile Rellanos. Pox is served on the house.

Although the service was very warm indeed, the food was just regular. At best. I am actually very confused why is this restaurant a top choice in San Cristobal. If it is top, then I am very concerned about culinary level of the city. Also, the presentation of the food was very weak. The only truly memorable taste was their expresso coffee. Mexican food is so much better than what they serve
