Got the meal deal here (75-90 pesos for soup, main, dessert and an alcoholic drink) and it was ok - no more. In other towns I'd say this was a great deal, but San Cristobal has lots of deals like this, and its easy to find much better quality. For example, Comedor Susy a couple of blocks north on Belisario... More

Easy to miss -- glad we didn't. Clean restaurant, clean restrooms, clean food [I ate fresh salad], delicious, excellent, excellent, kind service. Delicious bread served with [not tasty] parsley butter in an adorable tiny black bowl that looked like a cauldron for Witch Barbie. Chimichurri sauce and another green sauce were excellent on bread and meat. Quiet enough for conversations,... More

Because of the good recommendations we went down to check out this restaurant. We were the only ones on a Saturday evening which felt a bit odd. We took the menu especial but it wasn't especially good. The margarita was the simplest we ever had and the lasagne is not recommended. The cheese cake afterwards was dry as hell and... More

The best restaurant in San Cristobal de las casas. I ate filete de mignon and especial menu here and both of them were really nice.

We keep trying new restaurants for breakfast, but Maya Pakal remains our favorite. It never disapoints. It's quiet, very clean, and cozy, with interestong phots and regional posters on the walls. Even the background music is enjoyable and not overloud, as in other places. It's just half a block from the Zocalo/ Parque Central, and because it's not on any... More

I frequently returned here for dinner in my recent visit. Unpretentious quality food with a wide array of options. Excellent soups, very good pescado al ajillo, several vegetarian options. The set menu options are excellent value. The service is friendly, the quality is high and in a tourist with an awful lot of pretentious fine dining options, Maya Pakal is... More

This was our best find in town for a delicious dinner. Good food, good prices, attentive service, quiet, and free of vendadores on the two occasions we ate there. It's off the main square and frequented by locals as well as tourists. The chicken soup was excellent.

We stumbled upon this place looking for chilaquiles and eggs before our five hour trip to Palenque ruins. They have numerous breakfast packages including fruit coffee tea or hot chocolate, juice, eggs how you like them. Five of us ate for 257 pesos or about $20. This is a great value! The restaurant was clean and the service was prompt... More
