Very good place for a breakfast. In front of the main Valladolid Plaza. Very pleasant seats at the internal patio.

We went here to have lunch. Our waiter was super friendly. I had the salmon which was actually quite good. My wife had a lava stone with some veggies. Her meal was not so great at all, it included onions and tomatoes. Not worth 250 pesos. The atmosphere is quite nice in a hacienda setting.

We enjoyed an early dinner here after journeying back from Chichen Itza. Atmosphere was casual yet elegant. The restaurant is situated within open-air courtyard of historic building. Menu includes variety of delicious, local cuisine options as well as salads & pasta. Guacamole was made fresh at our table! Desserts were great - we sampled a few - all great.

We had lunch here yesterday on our return journey to Tulum from Chichen Itza as recommended by JC, our driver the the day. It was fantastic! Order the Plato typico, essentially the equivalent of an antipasti, all the local tastes on one plate, we also had the local steak with guacamole and the other Mexican sides, delicious! Great friendly service,... More

A beautiful setting at night - tables arranged around a central fountain. Waiters very busy, so a bit of a wait to get served, but once ordered, food arrived quickly. Staff were more about getting the job done than about being charming. The ceviche was tasty with plenty of fish and seafood. The 'buried' chicken (sorry, can't remember the dishes... More

This is a charming restaurant. We were seating at a table surrounding the garden and fountain and had a great view. This is a good restaurant in a colonial setting. The food was good, though not as plentiful as you can get elsewhere in town. It is popular with tourists and is priced as such.

We ate at El Meson del Marques and had a delicious dinner. The restaurant is in a lovely courtyard and the building looks like an old castle. Try their specialty, chochinita pibil.

Great food, nice setting and amazing service. Had cochinita pibil and a pork steak both delicious. They prepare the guacamole in front of you which is very nice. Service was very good, polite and attentive. Would definitely return, we were scared of the prices but 2 main dishes, guacamole on a side and drinks for 550 pesos or 28 usd.

Such a charming place and great value. The restaurant was amazing-- great food and service. The building and rooms are really, really nice. Didn't want to go out, just sit by the pool and in the restaurant.
