We have just had a great lunch there, fabulous food, great atmosphere and very nice service. The restaurant has a small, supervised play area for children, which allows adults to enjoy a more relaxed meal. We even had a musical trio playing very nice (and discreet) music.

The ambient was really nice, live music and natural environment. The menu was kind of fusionist but really tasty and with an excellent presentation.

For me this is The best restaurant in Tepotzlan! The pipian verde and mole are incredibly tasty, the cilantro soup with almonds delicious! All of the staff here are attentive and it is worth a Saturday drive out from Mexico City for a relaxing lunch!

This was a NICE restaurant, and we were not expecting that. It was the first place I saw wine glasses in the region-since I mostly saw people drinking beer or tequila. Really good band playing, and food mostly good, though the corn flan was truly, honestly vile.
