We stayed at a cabaña en el Panchan, so we had dinner, lunch & breakfast at Don Muchos. We highly recomend it, even if you are not sleeping in the jungle. Imagine having diner with dim lights and candle in the middle of the jungle and with live latin music band, just perfect! We recommend the pizzas!

I had a good night over here but ended up having really bad food poisoning from the pizza. They had good music and shows, little bit too touristic. I will not come back because of the food poisoning.

If you come here you will not be disappointed. The restaurant is always pretty full, and Hase some amazing good to offer. The Pizza was one of the best once I have eaten in Mexiko, all good is freshly made and definitely worth every penny (it is not even so expensive). A must go while in palenque!

Each food that I have taste is very delicious. Especially soaps and pizzas. Meals are big. There is live music at nights.

We were really surprised to find this place in the jungle. Two live bands played and there was a cool fire show. So we went for dinner and stayed to drink and dance. Be careful if you plan an early start in the morning!

Food was ok maybe some things better than what we had, a bit pricey, but it is in middle of the jungle. Overall would go again as it was nice to hear nature and the music was really good live band.

Music on a stage (salsa), fire dance at 11pm and a great atmosphere. Buzzy & fun. Food surprisingly good. Nice service. Nice mix of locals & tourists. Highly recommended

We had a hard time finding this restaurant after reading reviews here on TA. We had a tablet with us and I kept googling to find a description as to its exact location but we kept turning around at the Palenque ruins toll station without looking to the left right at the toll booth. The food was good the beer... More

We were a table of seven and barely anyone was able to eat what had been served(pizzas, pasta). The dishes were too large, almost over portioned. Their daily live music is entertaining at best. The only plus was the wild setting.
