We stopped for a vegetarian lunch on our way to tour the nearby convent. The setting was lovely. The service was good, not overly attentive but we didn't need that. :) The food was very good and there were many vegetarian options for a relatively...More

It would be a shame to miss eating here if you're in Valladolid. Tentacion de Valladolid is simple, but not like anything i've had. I ate there alone, but would be a nice place for a date. Three courses for $25-$35 usd.

This was absolutely a gourmet Mayan restaurant that is both beautiful and unpretentious. It's in a garden setting with both indoor and outdoor (palapa-style) seating. We ended up eating two meals there because we liked it so much. Every dish was delicious, and we loved...More
