La(s) Mestiza(s) Restaurant, Piste (Chichen Itzá) Yucatan, Mexico

The other day the Casual Restaurant Critic found himself in the charming hamlet of Pisté, adjacent to the majestic Mayan ruins of Chichen Itzá, where Sarah Brightman will sing at the end of this month.

Having heard of this restaurant, the Critic stopped for a quick breakfast of huevos con longaniza which seemed to take an inordinate amount of time to arrive. This was, as the Critic later discovered, because the kitchen was taking the trouble to accompany the plate with fresh, thick, hand-made tortillas! A real treat in this age where Maseca cardboard tortillas are the accepted (by some) norm.

Food was good, the tortillas excellent, service fine and the coffee awful.

  1. We ate there a couple of months ago. I thought the food was good, and even though the place had a tour bus load of customers the service didn't suffer.

  2. HI there,

    My husband and I ate there Oct. 4, our last evening at Chichen Itza, and we wanted to eat at a non-hotel location. We really enjoyed it, we sat outside on the front patio and had a very peaceful and tasty dinner.
