Santo Nahual

Top choice fusion in San Cristóbal de las Casas

Even before you've tasted the food, this wonderful new venture impresses with its glass-roofed courtyard dining area filled with worn timbers, smooth pebbles, glossy-leafed banana plants and even a day-glo piano. And when the food, which is best described as modern fusion Mexican, does come you'll find it every bit as unexpected and imaginative as the decor.

Try the scallop with pesto and tomato or the Thai chicken and follow up with a pavlova of forest fruits.
