Truly awful food! Really. Unfortunately, Patzcuaro doesn’t have any good restaurants and I can’t figure out why. Four of us ate dinner there and ordered a wide variety of food but none of it was any good.

This one is right on the main square; it's been here over a century! Food is excellent and great value! Good staff/service. We ate here 3 times in 5 days. The pasta is outstanding & less than $5 US! Highly recommend!!!
