We went here for dinner and had a good meal. The waiter was very friendly (although did not speak any English). We sat upstairs with the AC. Prices were OK and food quality was good. I would recommend.

Found this place looking for lunch in the village. The waiters and waitresses were super friendly and the food surprisingly good. The seating is partly close to the street but the many plants around make this a cosy place.

Visited here on a stormy night, sheltering from the rain and we weren’t disappointed. Bright and cheery cafe with friendly service and a varied menu. We had the burritos and tamales which were tasty. Reasonably priced too!

Headed to Cafe de Yara for brunch in Palenque and was left pretty disappointed. The waitress, while not rude, was anything but pleasant. Portion sizes were large but the food was very average. Will not be rushing back any time soon.

It was very nice that I immediately got a new knife when I dropped mine on the ground. Very good service and we got our food very quickly.
