Service was friendly. Food was good. Prices extremely reasonable. These are not necessarily things I expect from a restaurant on the main plaza of a tourist destination, but after reading the reviews I decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised.

One of most popular restaurant in Patzcuaro, good selection of plates, always very busy , service was prompt and efficient. Only negative was the fact they did not take CC, for the volume of business they do I see no justifications beside to save money on the bank charges and not the convenience for tourist not have to carry around...

Went on a party of 12, we had to be seated outside, cause there were no big tables inside. It was a little bit cold, but the good food compensated it. Mexican plates were really good, at an average price. Recommend.

After a sightseeing all day long we stopped at this restaurant for dinner. The service was fast and the food was great. We ordered corundas, tamales typical of Michoacan and they were the best we have eaten. We also had a plate with tacos, gorditas, sopes and guacamole which was o.k. The hot chocolate was excellent. It's reasonably priced. I... More

Loved the food here but most of all lived sitting outside in afternoons when it would rain to watch the rain and sipping some delicious hot chocolate

This is an interesting restaurant, which still serves as a grocery. It has several tables on the main square and several dining rooms inside. The food is simple and tasty, very reasonably priced and the location, especially if you are seating outside is unbeatable.

This popular eatery offers many traditional Mexican choices with good flavor. It's right on the main square so you can people watch as you dine.

We spent part of a Sunday afternoon on the sidewalk cafe watching the square. Good appetizers and margarita. Raspberry cake was good, too.

The Surtidora restaurant in Patzcuaro is located right at the main plaza by the tasty ice cream and pastries vendors. I really enjoyed the family atmosphere and food here; We visited it almost daily! It is housed in a colonial big house over four hundred years old. Their hot chocolate is awesome and their meat dishes are delicious, pricing is... More

The food is fine, could improve like always, service ok, it's a very old store and restaurant, that's very old and has been around for a while, traditional food, good coffee.
