“My wife and I have eaten here during...”
Reviewed 26 August 2010

My wife and I have eaten here during several visits to Valladolid

initially itcwas hard to find until you have been ther once as it is 1/2 block off the main square

the food while good does not go to any higher level and is largely yucatec food that you find in most restaurants in town

while the service is sincere and attentive the menu does not offer many choices

we enjoyed watching the Spanish music video on the large screen it was a nice touch

we wish the owner would expand the menu like he said he was originally intending to do ----- but no menu expansion yet

good value / good food but nothing special / attentive service / nice Spanish music videos to watch while you eat but not too loud so you still can talk at your table

give it a try and see what you think?!,!?

“Highly HIGHLY Recommend”
Reviewed 1 August 2009

It took my 3rd visit to Valladolid to finally find a good restraunt and La Chispa was it. I was even traveling with my vegetarian daughter who doesn't like a lot of the vegetables, which makes it extra difficult. Edurado took the time to find out exactly what she does and does not like and then made his recommendations. He hit the nail on the head and it was the best meal she had in our 19 day trip all over the Yucatan.

“best place to eat in Valladolid!”
Reviewed 5 May 2009

i have been travelling around Mexico for 2 weeks with some friends recently and the best place to taste gorgeous Mexican food is La Chispa in Valladolid,
the atmosphere is great and the place is just 2 minutes from the main Plaza,
staff are really friendly there and they will make you love Mexican food,
i highly recommend it and it is affordable too!
if you are lucky enough to find Eduardo there ask for his advise, you will end up eating there every night as we did!
