It is spacious and half outside, with a good menu, Mexican food, and a good wine selection and service. Simple place, it was the most lively we could find during a quiet evening in Tepoztlan.

A little pricier than other restaurants in town, but definitely worth a visit! The restaurant has a patio offering a nice setting at any time of the day. Good food and service.

Delicious food and friendly staff with an amazing view of the Tepozteco. Try escamoles (ant eggs) with guacamole, coupled with a tequila.

I would not think that typically reservations are needed on Fridays. It's really the best strategy you go there either as early as 1pm or - if you are before in Tepoztlan - you pass once by and make a reservation.
