We were for dinner, breakfast and dinner again all in one weekend. The food is ok but the menu is quite small. We would love to have more variety and options.

Can't beat the location, but the food in my opinion was about average. Service could of have been better as well as my daughter's plate (a simple hamburger) arrived way after everyone else was served.

Right on Plaza Grande overlooking the plaza. Can eat inside or on the patio. Freshly squeezed orange juice, terrific coffee and a great selection of local breakfast dishes along with the more well known typical Mexican offerings. Very tasty, we’ll served and very reasonably priced....More

I just read another review from another traveler asking why there aren't any good restaurants in Patzcuaro, and we were wondering the same. We had dinner and breakfast in this place because it was the only restaurant in Patzcuaro that looked good. The food is...More
