Went there with a group after visiting the pyramids. Atmosphere and location are great. Service was ok. We ordered Molcajete with meat to share- when we got the dish- which actually looked good, the meat was just warm and it was chewy. In the end...More

This restaurant is situated right behind Teotihuacan. The food was very expensive and tasteless, without salt (beans and guacamole). They brought 4 tortillas for 4 people (very greedy!). My plate was cracked! The best part was home-made salsa. Waiters were impolite, noone wanted to take...More

The location (inside a cave) is over the top amazing. The food is solidly good; it isn’t high end gourmet, but it is tasty, the prices are reasonable, and the wait staff was attentive to my table. I would definitely eat here again, and if...More

Nearly 2 hours to be seated, only to find virtually the entire menu was meat. Ended up ordering cheese quesadillas, guacamole and cactus salad. Everything was great, except the salad. Pretty sure the cactus was old. Incredible location, mediocre service and food.

Ah pun intended. The ambience of eating in the cave is a nice respite from the hot area of the pyramids. Just a short 2 minute walk from gate 5 behind the pyramid of the Sun! Food is nothing special, but the cave, the Mariachi...More

This place probably has the worst service of ALL TIME. The only good thing about it is that it is underground and sort of in a cave. That part is pretty cool. Me and my Mom and sister went after a long day at the...More

La Gruta was recommended to us by a friend who was involved in some of the Infrastructure built to support Teotihuacan. He’s obviously been then on numerous occasions and was quite right to recommend it. This is probably the nicest place in the area and...More

We were visiting the ruins and stopped here for lunch. The food was not very memorable, but it didn't matter because the atmosphere was cool and the wait staff were really nice. The chips and salsas that they give you were really tasty.

Perfect dining place after your visit to the Temple of the Sun! It's in a cave-- how cool!! Love the food, the drinks and the live performance. And there is a little candle lighting ritual for each table after dinner!

To go from the Mexico City, you need to go first to Teotihuacan. For that you can take the bus in the Northern Bus Station or outside the Indios Verdes Metro. Arriving at Teotihuacan, you can take a taxi surrounding the... More
