Great thought was given at this special property to design. But the place is riddled with so many flies that you have to spend half your time (if not more) shooing them away from your table. There are lots of waitstaff, and yet incredibly, it can take forever to get their attention. They simply stand there, lost in thought, but when you do manage to get their attention, they are nice people. The Egyptian tea we had was good, as were the shrimp tacos. The lima bean soup was thin and watery for the ridiculously high price. We ordered a number of things, but none of their main dishes, not to try to save money, but because not of them looked remotely appealing. The desserts were not good. The brownie is an offering to stay away from, and the cheesecake, such as it is, is bizarre (they claim it has a chutney topping, but don't be fooled). Still, the grounds themselves surrounding the dining area can be nice and intimate for a couple -- but beware, the young mexicans who flock here on weekends smoke like chimneys, and simply have no idea how to behave in public, and that puts a huge damper on this place.

Ya pasamos sus comentarios al Chef y la gerencia y platicaron con los meseros y el grupo de trabajo para que sean mas ágiles en su servicio, en el comedor como Usted se percato no pueden fumar las personas para ello hay un área de fumadores que utilizan en entera libertad

Pretty much the title says it all. Servers is what save the space and the only good and intersting thing in the menu is the chocolate chilaquiles dessert. Definitely won't be coming back to eat here AT ALL!

La Veladora is a nice quiet restaurant inside the Hotel Fernanda. The service was nice. The food... half and half... we had great Sopes and Flor de Calabaza... however our main meal (enchiladas) were cold and not so tasty. We did have a nice Cesar salad prepared to our taste right at the table. That was good. The serving personnel were great. Friendly and professional.

I am a bit fussy and to be honest this is one of only two restaurants that I know in Tepoztlan that I really enjoy. The food is excellent as is the service. The garden is well kept and a good place to sit and enjoy a coffee and digestif... might not be a bad idea to have a few more seats outside for that.

We were there for a weekend dinner and our experience was way different than the many excellent reviews for La Veladora.

The al fresco dining experience adjacent to the well-kept garden was a plus. It creates a nice atmosphere. Too, the food presentation was a plus, they've obviously put some thought into that.

The food, however, did not meet the expectations we had based on the ratings. The plato del barrio and the enchiladas de huerto were ... just good. I was expecting a wow based on the reviews and that the menu has only a few things on it (generally an indication that a restaurant has things it does well and showcases them in the menu). However, that was not the case.

My biggest issue, however, came at the end of the meal. Our bill with the wine and the appetizer came to 1199mxn. They said their card terminals were not working, so I paid 1500 cash. The waiter (Alan on the ticket) returned with 201 - I didn't recognize that I was 100 short, instead picking up the 200 note and telling him "hay que cambiar esto" as I did not have the right combination of bills to make a tip.

10 minutes later we finally went to the front desk and asked for our change. They called the waiter up, who argued that he had given us the right change and thought the 200 was a tip.

I've been in Latin America for 20 years. My Spanish is perfectly adequate for business issues, day-to-day life, and a host of other things. This was nothing more than a scam the gringo move.

Beware.
