We were a party of 12, sat in a big room that was right near a beautiful courtyard. Nice atmosphere, good service. Specialties were very good, service was too. Loved this city.

This is a nice property, well located on the main plaza, in decent repair with a swimming pool and a good restaurant (more conquistador than Mayan or Mexican, if that matters; slow service, good "continental" kitchen). The hang-up is the registration desk, which seems chronically inefficient, not to say passive aggressive. I'm fluent in Spanish but don't fit the stereotype,... More

A group of four of us stopped in for lunch at El Meson del Marques and really enjoyed our experience. The restaurant itself is set within the courtyard of the hotel, this is very pretty and a nice touch. The food was very tasty, reasonably priced for the choices and one of the better meals we have eaten in the... More

Damn it, I miss the food from Meson Marques. 5 days in Valladolid and we were hooked. Clearly, they have a vision about food and execute it beautifully. (I wonder whether the popular Wahaca restaurants in London were not at least partially inspired by them.) We made it a point to eat one meal a day at the restaurant (though... More

Taking on count the small town this restaurant/hotel is in, the place is just great: comfortable, delicious, friendly... the menu has several options but I would definitely recommend the achiote marinated pulled pork or: cochinita pibil. It is so tasty! I've had cochinita pibil in several more places but this one is definitely the number 1! don't forget to accompany... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch in the beautiful restaurant in the centro of Valladolid. The conchinita pibil served with sour orange and chilli powder to enhance the flavours was excellent. Others at our table enjoyed their meals as well which included chile relleno with a meeting stuffing, chicken fajitas and a Lomita dish. No one was disappointed and the prices... More

We had breakfast there several days as part of our hotel stay. They were okay but uninspired. Dinner was disappointing, over-priced and again uninspired. We had chile rellenos and some kind of yucatan pollo dish. Nothing bad, but not that flavourful nor good value for the price. The surroundings are pleasant though and the servers efficient.

Ambiance, great guacamole & steak. Good variety of dishes. Reasonably priced. In a very old colonial house with central courtyard with fountain. Tables are under cloisters and centre is open to the air. This has a good sizeable hotel attached at the back, complete with car parking. There is a car park attendant.

If you're looking for traditional Mayan food in a pleasant atmosphere this is a good bet. It's right on the main square in Valladolid and is fairly large, so they do cater to tour groups. And if a tour group shows up, and you're at a table for two, the service will suffer. The food was well prepared and tasty,... More
