Good food, the waiter was nice but service so so as with every place you will go to in all Eastern and Southern part of Mexico!.... Service on 90% of places will be bad! Also as with a lot of restaurants in Palenque, food was not too much but a little bit Pricy for the area you are in! The... More

Don't come here. We ordered a plate of medium rare steak, it took more than an hour for them to cook this well-done steak. The service was really bad and they even asked for tips afterwards. Nice try🙄🙄 don't ever come to this restaurant. NEVER!

we arrived early so there werent many people and yet the waiter was in a hurry and when we were ordering the waiter put no attention at all, the pozol with cocoa has anything but cocoa, although the dobladas are really tasty and great

We arrived in Palenque early in the morning, and just looked for a place to have breakfast, and Maya was open and looked nice so we decided to eat there. Good decision, the food was really good, with several nice options for breakfast. Their coffee is excellent, one of the few places in Mexico I have had really good coffee... More

Quite a big restaurant, with very few people the Wednesday night we went,on a street by the Zocalo. The welcome was polite, nothing to write home about, and the food we found average. Good Wifi. We didn't return!

As one of the other reviewers said, this review is about the restaurant at the town square, of which a picture is placed by Jeremy M. We had lunch/dinner here twice, at the Mexican time of mid-afternoon. The local dishes were outstanding and the service was great. Prices were a bit higher than at non-touristic places, but you can still... More

We had lunch there this pat weekend (Benito Juarez's birthday). The food was pretty good. My little girl almost finished her plate (the two whole quesadillas). We had just finished our hiking from the national park of Palenque, so we've worked up our appetite!

We ate three meals here, two breakfasts and a lunch. At all three meals, the food was outstanding! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We went there because we wanted to try something different after the fantastic food two nights in a row at El Huachinango Feliz just across the street. We had chicken soup and some pork dish (which was really salty). Way overpriced and the food wasn't great.

Great ambience, as mentioned in several of the other reviews. We had very attentive waiters and used a coupon with a three-course "tourist special" which worked out great. We noticed that we did not have a problem with the mosquitoes here, and the food was delicious!
