Went on a party of 12, we had to be seated outside, cause there were no big tables inside. It was a little bit cold, but the good food compensated it. Mexican plates were really good, at an average price. Recommend.

It's reasonably priced. I... More

Loved the food here but most of all lived sitting outside in afternoons when it would rain to watch the rain and sipping some delicious hot chocolate

This is an interesting restaurant, which still serves as a grocery. It has several tables on the main square and several dining rooms inside. The food is simple and tasty, very reasonably priced and the location, especially if you are seating outside is unbeatable.

We spent part of a Sunday afternoon on the sidewalk cafe watching the square. Good appetizers and margarita. Raspberry cake was good, too.

The Surtidora restaurant in Patzcuaro is located right at the main plaza by the tasty ice cream and pastries vendors. I really enjoyed the family atmosphere and food here; We visited it almost daily! It is housed in a colonial big house over four hundred years old. Their hot chocolate is awesome and their meat dishes are delicious, pricing is... More

A nice place, it has an amazing brakefast, it's clean and also great service. The best part was dinner, i ate the best enchiladas and molletes. If you prefer you can ask for a cofee and enjoy the view of "la plaza de Don Vasco"
