This is a great seafood restaurant. If is extremely well priced and the food is fresh and tasty. the staff were extremely attentive. it is a little quirky and rough , not somewhere to dress up for a " fine dining " experience

Thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast and dinner we had El Huachinango! The flavours and freshness of every dish we tried (huevos rancheros, quesadillas, camarone starter & cazuela) were delicious! The atmosphere is lively with locals in every seat, always a good sign and a great people watching experience. The food and beverage prices are very reasonable. Service very friendly.

If you´re in no rush- great since you´ll be here a while! The service is extremely slow and the waiters tend to forget everything. Several tables around me complained before we left. On a positive note, the food is outstanding! The ceviche and octopus is second to none. Pricing is very reasonable and the restaurant is well located. If you... More

It doesn’t fit in that corridor that has been recently revamped to become the smart street in the city of Palenque. The Huachinango Feliz lacks not only of category,... More
