View of the courtyard at El Meson del Marques


This restaurant is in the hotel in the main square in Valladolid, The hotel is a nice place to stay as well, but this is a review of the restaurant. You enter the restaurant from main square in Valladolid. It is in an open air courtyard. And the menu is mainly Yucatecan fare, and it is delicious.


Our Visit

Whenever we go to Valladolid, we usually have at least one meal at El Meson del Marques. Last time, we stayed there as well. The rooms are comfortable. Nothing super fancy, but centrally located right on the main square in Valladolid. (You actually get to the parking and check-in behind the hotel.) The restaurant is accessed from the main square in Valladolid and it opens to a central courtyard, with seating around the outside.

Poc Chuc

The menu is Yucatecan, we had Poc Chuc pork and one of the specialties of the area Longaniza. The area has loads of smoked meat shops. And the town of Temozón between Valladolid and Ek Balam has dozens of smoked meat shops, as well as lots of furniture stores as well.
