This place was so good, went back twice. Four stars dining for a great price. Very fresh ingredients with a creative menu. Loved it.

The atmosphere is elegant and pleasant. The service was very good, but the food left something to be desired, in my opinion. I had chicken with two mole sauces which I found a bit bland, although the presentation was very nice. Maybe I just went there on an off day?

Lunch at Tierra y Cielo is such a pleasure, wonderful food, great service, and very pleasant décor. We ate at Tierra y Cielo on the last day of a 4 day trip to San Cristobal and it was one of the highlights, so glad we did. The food was excellent, presented beautifully, taste and preparation outstanding. Great use of local... More

I liked my first dinner here so much that I came back again and again. The menu is designed to show off Chiapas's wonderful local produce, fish, meats, and cheeses. The staff make a point of explaining where each item originates-- it might be nice to show tourists a map of the state so they can see where everything comes... More

We sat in the outdoor courtyard where there was great music and candles. The wait staff was professional and friendly. Our food was fresh, imaginative, delicious and thoughtfully presented. We started off with homemade flat chippy things with sauces and shared some empanadas both were really delicious and different. My husband had the chicken with two moles - one was... More

The service was excellent, the food was good, but overpriced. This level of prices you get in Mexico City with a better quality of food. My "robalo" fllet could have been a little bit more tender, the soups could have had little bit more taste

Great staff, nice patio. Had the mole and my wife had chipilin soup. Both were outstanding. Get the quesadilla as an appetizer and you will not be disappointed. Flaky shell, seemingly whipped queso seca . . . Incredible. The little extras added to the ,eal as well . . . Some tasty cheeses sent out by the chef before and... More

It was our best meal in San Cristobal and we enjoyed every detail of our dinner. Chef Marta uses local ingredients and re-invents Mexican cuisine in a very original and delicious way. We discovered the tasty simojovel chiles which are available for purchase in the gift shop that also sells home made preserve, local honey and chocolate. I highly recommend... More

I'm from Mexico City and I've lived in the US for more than a decade, so I understand the Mexican cuisine as well as the expectations for most well-traveled americans. This restaurant does not serve the typical fare. It is more like a new- Mexican cuisine that uses local ingredients and recipes with a twist or an improvement. The decor... More
