We had an array of different foods, I was so tired I only ordered soup. Egg soup with garlic! Delicious! The best part of this meal were the fruit juice drinks: cantaloupe , pineapple, lemonade, rice water (horchata).

We had a grilled fish and seafood dish here for our evening meal, which was ok - with tomatoes and onions. Not sure the fish was fresh - had probably been frozen. Cheap dining option. I would have liked to try the taco trolley on the corner opposite - they had just put out a fresh assortment of toppings and... More

We have encountered this restaurant by accident, since its quite close to the bus stop. Before taking night bus to tulum we decided to eat nice dinner. So for 90 pesos (5.6 euros) you get a 3 course meal with a drink included (soup, main meal (u can choose from 3 options, we tried 2 and they were bought super... More

We had breakfast here before heading out to the ruins and it was nothing special. White toast with packet jam and butter and awful coffee. My Spanish omelette was good - flavoursome and well cooked, however husband's heuvos rancheros were bad. Slimy and bland and only came with one overcooked egg. Service was prompt but not particularly friendly. We've had... More

Delicious breakfasts, with hand made tortillas. The lady will be making them just a few minutes before you will be eating them. Coffee was tasty as well. Fast service if you will be catching a bus. We were able to eat there because our bus was delayed, and I am so glad that it was. Great value.

We stayed in Palenque for two nights on our way through Mexico. There's a bunch of restaurants in town. This one's right a the main drag next to the ADO Bus station, so it's hard to miss. There's all the typical mexican meals on the menu. For a starter we had some Guacamole. For the main we chose the chicken... More

If you're looking for a budget option for a traditional Mexican menu (soup, main meal and a dessert), located very close to the bus station. Watch out for the lentil soup if you're vegetarian- it contains meat!
