“A little piece of France in rural Mexico”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

It must be the tiniest restaurant I have ever been to but certainly it has one of the best.
Very inviting and friendly staff and superb food and wine.
I will be going back some time.

We loved this place! It was cosy, but comfortable and the food was delicious!! The beef bourguignon was so tender and tasty! Very attentive service, a little gem!

“Extreemely delicious”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We've had bourguignon and their speciality ... it was "queso fundido". The food tasted delicous and reminded me of European cuisine. I would highly recommend this place for a dinner, if you find yourself in San Cristobal. Morever, it is very near from the central park.

Мы в Чалет попробовали бургиньон их фирменное блюдо "queso fundido". Ужин выдался на славу. Мне очень понравилось, и я советую отведать их блюда другим, уверен, что они вас не разочаруют.

“Best restaurant in town”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We stayed a total of almost 3 weeks in San Cristobal, so we had the chance to try a lot of different restaurants here and El Chalet was hands down the best place.

The food is clean, tasty and affordable. The owners are lovely people, needless to say the service is excellent as well. Our favorite dish was the boeuf bourguignon.

We've been here about 5-6 times and the quality was consistently good. Make sure to visit when in San Cristobal.
