“Good food, great service.”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Good regional food, including a great mole sauce. Our room came with full breakfast, which we very much enjoyed. Delicious omelettes, a nice plate of papaya, and a basket of what seemed to be freshly baked rolls and biscuits. Our only complaint was the coffee, which was extremely weak. But Patzcuaro abounds in coffee shops,so finding a good latte, expresso, or mocha is no problem. We also found another great restaurant which I would love to review,but it is not available here. The name is El Primer Piso, and the food is outstanding in every way. Some of the bestwe have ever eaten in Mexico. I would say Dona Paca is a great restaurant,and El Primer Piso is a greatone.

“best restaurant we found in Patzcuaro”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

My wife and I spent two days in Patzcuaro - ate at Dona Paca, Lupita and La Trattoria - and found Dona Paca to be the best one of the three. Very tasty food, a good (somewhat formal compared to the others) atmosphere and reasonable service. Patzcuaro doesn't seem to have any great restaurants, but Dona Paca was good food and a nice dining experience.

“Good service. Good food.”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

The Tarasca soup was average. The trout with macadamia nut sauce was very good and not overcooked at all. Finding fish prepared well can be a challenge in central Mexico. On this Palm Sunday weekend, when Patzcuaro is very busy, this quiet dining room was well appreciated.
