Benno, the restaurant at Hotel San Cristóbal, serves traditional Mexican fare for breakfast and dinner and they do it in a way that’s authentic and delicious, relying on the best of local produce. Think freshly baked pan dulce with fresh tropical fruits like papaya, mango and piña for breakfast. Whole grilled fish, pulled fresh from the sea for dinner. Spicy sweet potato flautas. Top it all off with a birthday treat of handmade churros and you’ve got yourself a birthday worth celebrating for more than just a day.
