The setting and the view was good. The only thing we did not like was the food! Have eaten in quite a few restaurants in Tepoztlan and don't think this should be rated as the best.

Had a bit of trouble finding this place but it was definitely worth it. Spectacular view. Don’t plan on rushing the experience. Plan on 2-3 hour for lunch and drinks. Will visit every time I am back in the area.

Entering into this restaurant is already something that I'd recommend if you're visiting Tepoztlán. As we sat, service was outstanding but as food was delivered we found it to be just good. I would have thought that given the reviews and presentation it would be...More

This is a very nice restaurant, in all the tables you can see the mountain “el tepozteco”. All the food is delicious, is Mexican gourmet food. Try enchiladas of cochinita pibil or enchiladas de pato with pipian. If there’s a lot of people, you should...More

One of the bets places in Tepoztlan. Food is amazing. Service is good. But best of all is to be on the terrace with the beautiful view of Tepozteco.

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.
