If you are staying at Uxmal some of the hotels charge excessive prices for meals. This restaurant provides great Mexican food at a fraction of cost.

We stayed two nights at Pickled Onion. We simply love the place. Lovely cabins and berry nice pool. All perfectly clean. Just 10 min drive from Uxmal and 5 min from Kabah. Nice breakfast (included) and restaurant (restaurant not included). Very delicious food

We had a lunch and dinner here. Same menu, but the food was good and a fair price. The grounds look lush. We were not permitted to walk beyond the restaurant for the security of the guests. We would consider staying here the next time we are in the area. The only drawback is no a.c. Not a problem in... More

We ate both lunch and dinner at the Pickled Onion during our trip to Uxmal and the Ruta Puuc. We loved everything about this place: their simple but delicious food made from fresh ingredients, the patio seating with beautiful garden views, and their friendly waitstaff. Prices are very reasonable and the portions are huge, so it's a great value! There... More

Several years ago my husband and I stayed overnight at the Pickled Onion while visiting Uxmal. We decided to have lunch there last week as we were in the area. The grounds have been beautifully landscaped and the setting is lovely. I ordered the gazpacho soup and the presentation was gorgeous! However, the taste left a lot to be desired.... More

We've traveled in this area each of the past three winters and can say, unequivocally, that the Pickled Onion is *the* place to eat in and around Santa Elena/Uxmal. There is a real (and very, very good) chef, who turns out amazing dishes all day, and a full & well-tended bar that serves great margaritas. In addition to traditional Yucatan... More

A nice atmosphere and delicious food. Good service and tasty beverages. It's a good place to meet other travelers, since it is part of a hotel.

We came here for a late lunch with a large group. There was ample parking, and the place had an easy ambiance. As with many of these places, the dining room is more of an open porch - which was not a problem. There were a several other couples having lunch as well - but there was very little delay... More

A great welcome, and delicious. Sadly, I ordered fries to go with my salad which was rather lost in translation, but they arrived very quickly when I 're-ordered' and were proper home cooked chips! Staff were very efficient and friendly. Worth a trip.
