Description: Situated in the main plaza with a magnificent view of the archeological site this is a relaxed easy going (dogs welcomed, kids menu) restaurant. The menu celebrates Mexican flavors with international flair e.g Nopales (edible cacti) with hibiscus fand zuccini flower. Don't miss the seasonal "chiles en nogada". Decor persues to preserve it's old house setting creatively. Great music, attentive service. Los Placeres also has a gallery with art exhibitions.Opened from thursday to sunday. We offer catering service for weddings and special events.

The restaurant is situed right on the zocalo, in front of the monastrery. Well, Malinalco is pretty quite at night, and there are not so many restaurants around. Try the chicken nuggets in appetizer, follow with the curry, tacos de pollo and the falafel. Everything is clean and the small backyard offers a nice and friendly setting in the middle of abundant liane jade. No hesitation, this is a nice place for a lovely dinner in Malinalco.

The decor is strange, like a bombed building inside, probably to look trendy with different tables everywhere (iron, wood, round, square, rectangle, inside, outside on grass, etc.). The service was very slow despite the place not being full. When eventually our dishes arrived we reconciled with the place: very nice presentation and great flavor.
