Only a 15-minute walk north of the zócalo, Marco Polo is a favorite of locals and visitors alike. The typical Mexican-style fish and shellfish dishes are attractively presented and reasonably tasty, and if you come expecting decent, albeit not ultra-gourmet, cuisine, you won't be disappointed. Dishes cooked in the adobe oven are especially worthwhile. The setting adds to your dining pleasure. Tables sit in a patio surrounded by a lush, tropical garden, providing a relaxing ambiance for a leisurely afternoon comida. Known also for good breakfasts.
