We went to this restaurant while on a tour through Chiapas and were staying in San Cristobal de las Casas. Other reviewers recommended the duck tacos and we were not disappointed. So delicious. We also would recommend the chef salad with the steak.

San Cristobal isn't one of my highlights from this trip but this restaurant (along with the textile museum) are a good reason to stop off here. Food is excellent, ambience is refined and calm, staff are attentive w/o being over bearing.More
