Palenque doesn't offers the best culinary experiences, access to good quality raw Materials is limited The restaurant is super nice, With great vibe and a romantic setting, food is ok Music sucks, might be good to change that subject

We went here based on the recommendation of the owner of the hotel we were staying at nearby. We found the food to be good, although a bit different from that of Italian restaurants we are accustomed to in the US. Like other businesses outside of the town of Palenque, they don't accept credit cards, so remember to bring enough... More

Thank you for your kind opinion. Remarque that for lack of decent internet signal by telmex in this area (company that overshadows the service in Mexico) we unfortunately do not count with payment of credit card. Have a good stay in Messico More

Let me put it this way: I'm a pizza snob and the pizza here is simply excellent. One of the best I've eaten in Mexico. Probably the only difference with pizza from Napoli are the San Marzano tomatoes which are obviously not easy to find around here. The place doesn't look like much from the outside after an bumpy road,... More

They have a nice choice of Pizzas. Other items are limited and no variety in choices. Has a nice touristy setting with a wide selection of wines. Very close to the Mayan ruins and worth a visit.

We wanted a little break from Mexican food and this was just perfect. Pizzas are delicious, wine is good and all the staff is lovely. Plus, the location, in the middle of the jungle, dreamy !

Well, This exactly the reason why I like TripAdvisor, there I was starving with a family of 8, four adults, 4 children with no idea of where to go, and a hundred of possibilities to choose from.
