Having tried a couple of upscale places decided to change tack. Good job too! A friend recommended this place so I listened. Lunch buffet was really reasonably priced at 190 pesos and included salads, soups, chicken, pork, rice, paella, local Chiapan dishes, spaghetti, vegetables and dessert. My waiter Limberg De Jesús looked after me superbly even checking whether to add... More

We ate at Plaza Real twice; once for lunch with our tour group and then for dinner on our own. Both meals were excellent. One chicken dish had a coffee-flavored sauce that was wonderful. The mushroom soup was one of the best I've ever had. There were enough menu choices, including foods that were flavorful, but not spicy which I... More

We arrived in San Cristobal late in the afternoon after an arduous overland ride from Antigua. Went for dinner early as we hadn't eaten all day. This restaurant hit the spot. I had a squash and corn fungus crepe which was excellent and my less adventuresome husband spaghetti which he declared very good. We both loved the amuse bouche of... More

Beautiful restaurant, attentive staff and delicious food. Romantic location for marriage proposals, anniversaries and birthdays or just to make a day special without breaking the bank.

Quiet, inexpensive and very convenient place to eat right off the pedestrian shopping street. Good Italian and Mexican dishes and friendly service!

The atmosphere was good, but all the service was looking the TV ( Mexico - Usa ). So everytime we had to call them and we felt like we were bother them. The dishes were good and tasting.

Directly in the center of San Cristobal de Las Casas, you find this restaurant in a lovely old, hacienda like building. The atmosphere is really nice and the lunch was one of the better we had during our 2 week circuit of Mexico.

A lovely dining room, attractively decorated with local crafts. Tortillas being made before your eyes. Servers outfitted in Chiapan dress from nearby villages. As you would expect, this is a tourist-heavy restaurant, big on selfies. The food, however, is really only average, mostly because the spice level has been moderated. Also, avoid the flan at all costs: rock solid, without... More

Shared the platter for two based on a friends recommendation. Was a bit overlooked to our tastes, but was interesting. The highlight was the apple and cranberry salad which also seemed to have a sprinkling of a peanut bar. Hose wing quite good. Ambience excellent.
