I have coffee and Quesadillas. The barbacoa and cheese were my favorite and the coffee was wonderful. Service was great. We sat outside to people watch, but were bombarded with street vendors almost to the point we couldn't eat our meal. After a few refusals...More

This restaurant is right on the main square. This combined with the pleasant decor suggests that it is going to be expensive. In fact it is surprisingly reasonable. Moreover, some of the menu items are more like what you would expect in a cafe; eg....More

This is a great place to try authentic Chiapas cuisine including chipilín soup, quesadilla de Cochinita, a great range of mole (chili sauce) dishes and the house specialty: chicken thighs stuffed with cheese, ham and other goodies! Recommended

We had lunch there: really delicious, we wanted to try everything. We had 'tamales de chipilin' for starters. The chicken with banana filling and 'mole' was beyond superb. The place is in front of the central plaza.

We visit San Cristobal de las Casas at least once a year. The food is great at many restaurants but this one overlooking the parque central is very/very good...Oso Bucco is my favorite dish of theirs but almost everything is especially delicious...mixed tacos too...great!

The frijoles "envenenados" were the best!!! The rest of the food was really average, the mole wasn't that good, the service and attention is really good though.
