This was such an excellent place. The location is suberb (just in San cris Plaza), the service was very good and food excellent. We try some local dishes recommended by the staff and we were delighted. Prices were good, not an expensive place. Also few of the places that accept all type of credit cards (Amex, Visa, etc)

This is a great place to try authentic Chiapas cuisine including chipilín soup, quesadilla de Cochinita, a great range of mole (chili sauce) dishes and the house specialty: chicken thighs stuffed with cheese, ham and other goodies! Recommended

We had lunch there: really delicious, we wanted to try everything. We had 'tamales de chipilin' for starters. The chicken with banana filling and 'mole' was beyond superb. The place is in front of the central plaza.

We visit San Cristobal de las Casas at least once a year. The food is great at many restaurants but this one overlooking the parque central is very/very good...Oso Bucco is my favorite dish of theirs but almost everything is especially delicious...mixed tacos too...great!

The frijoles "envenenados" were the best!!! The rest of the food was really average, the mole wasn't that good, the service and attention is really good though.

Average food. Fancy modern 'nice' clean environment with TV's flashing at you. I speak fluent Spanish as a gringo and was treated notably differently than the native Mexicans next to me by the waitress. I was mixed about posting because I'm not a complainer type. Lo que sea.

Good food. For some reason their regional menu is in Spannish only while their national menu is bilingual. Anyhow, food is plentiful and good.

This restaurant is actually two separate restauants. One is in the patio of the hotel and the other is in a sunny front space. It is right on the main square and thus very convenient. The food was delicious, clean, and very reasonably priced. Great spot for either a group or just one person.
