The scenery of the being inside a cave beneath the ground is beautiful. The history of the establishment makes that much memorable to see it has been preserved. Food is good. Service is good yet I feel it is a bit rough on the staff....More

This is a great spot to wind down after visiting Teotihuacan. It was alot better than I expected, dining under a cave was quite an experience to begin with; yet this restaurant had delicious food and entertainment.
