Description: Excellent, tasty Mexican food of many types, including authentic Chiapaneca food. This restaurant is run by Zapatistas and there are several tiendas around the eating area selling products from Zapatista villages. Free WiFi, very good music (both live and recorded,) nice ambiance. The NY Times says it has a fixed price meal for $30 --- WRONG!! You can eat well for $ 10 and nearly as well for $ 7.00 USD.

Big room which almost has an outdoor feel to it. Ideal place to try out Mexican food due to the range available but it also does spectacular pizzas. The food is very tasty and reasonable, although pizzas at app 100 pesos are more expensive. Worth it though. Very pleasant wine at 25 pesos. Was very busy the night we were... More

We've come back here three times in two days cause it was too good! Breakfast is lovely and dinner is even better! fantastic flavors. All made with love. Typical and very political. I've adored it and it's personality.

There is a VERY big menu choice here which includes a separate pizza/pasta menu and lots of Mexican and regional specialties The drinks menu is also extensive. The restaurant is one big open space so as such doesn't have any atmosphere of intimacy or even charm but the food more than makes up for that. Live music is often playing... More

Amazing portion sizes, come hungry! Free bread with sauces to start- one is made from seeds called chimina and was the best. The omelettes are delicious and try the cardamom hot chocolate its great. There are nice posters inside and small shops off the side you can purchase crafts and books from. Great experience. Friendly staff.

The attention depends on how often you go and how you dress, the nicest the worst, most of San Cristobal's intellectuals go there, because it's told ythat they support the zapatistas... don't know, but don't thik so... There are better places, with better food and much better attention in San Cristobal

We were a group of five and undecided on where to go for dinner. Very eclectic menu ranging from Italian, Mexican, Vegetarian and Meat options. This was our second night in a row at Tierradentro for this reason.Very reasonably priced..hey, it's hard to complain with a California glass of wine for 24 pesos ($2.00usd)! Service was good despite a busy... More

We were here with some friends and we really enjoyed the place and the atmosphere, it is a cosy, lively and nice place, with a super friendly staff. Food is good but somewhat average, especially if you pick something that is not a Mexican specialty. Worth giving a try knowing what to expect.

Enjoyed a light meal here. The service was good and the food was fresh and tasty. Kept thinking we would get back for a second time, but didn´t make it. Would recommend.
