Visited as our lunch stop during a tour of Teotihuacan. It is a typical tourist buffet. I opted for the freshly cooked quesidillas which were tasty, the Bohemia beer was good and the desserts OK. The rest of the buffet didn't appeal to me. Entertainment was laid on but was a bit cheesy.

The food is good, they have traditional Mexican dishes. I went for breakfast and enjoyed the food, and the service was good except the waiter asked about 5 times for the "voluntary tip". It felt a bit too intense.

Honestly I expected better. The food is not bad, but it is not impressive. There is music and dance, but it looks a bit too touristy.

Typical buffet serving international meals (limited selection in their foods). No special Mexican dishes. They have a small entertainment crew outside the restaurant that was fun to watch.

Yes, this is a tourist stop, but fortunately we were in early so only us eight. No queueing for excellent tacos, and the various buffet items piping hot and fresh with a quick explanation of the spiciest of the dishes. Both the fish and the chicken in the cactus sauce were excellent and drinks reasonably priced. Whilst we love music,... More

Average place. Buffet type. The meal was edible but nothing really tasteful exept for the soup. No milk for the coffee, only dry cleaner.

This restaurant has a breakfast extravaganza like no other, in a lovely and pleasant atmosphere with incredible gardens and first class service at moderate prices. Located near the pyramids, you will enjoy a stop here, for sure. Nice gift shop too! :-)

After our hot air balloon ride with Flying Pictures Mexico, we enjoyed a traditional Mexican breakfast buffet. The restaurant was decorated for Dia de Muertos. The food and service were both very good.

This is the regular stop whenever you take the Teotihuacan Pyramids tour. I really don't get it. The food is not good at all. They have a buffet, though it includes a wide variety of options, it's hard to choose. None of them are good. The best thing of the buffet is the tacos station, however, you have to wait... More

This is a buffet based restaurant with many artistic presentations while you eat. The food was good, with a great variety of choices. I suggest to offer different kind of drinks, not only Jamaica.
