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.

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.
