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.

Their menu is rather spotty they have some really tasty items and some items that seem rather poor in quality. Their pizzas are really good and they have a vegan pizza on their menu. Also one with eggplant that is quite tasty that can be ordered cheeseless. I also get their calzone with more veggies in place of cheese really... More

Lively place to eat dinner. Livebands every night. The food was good, loads of veggie options, and quick service considering how busy it was!

TierrAdentro is a larger space ringed with interesting little tiendas. It is known as a Zapatista restaurant and has that feel. The menu is extensive, with shrimp perhaps the tastiest meal I've had, but everything is good. This is casual dining, not gourmet, but I like it. Prices are lower-moderate, service is good and friendly. There is often live music,... More

A large friendly room, with many tables-- diners, internet users, musicians, tourists, lots of locals. Good well-prepared large menu, lots of veggie options, good house wine for less, pizzas made to order. Can't beat it...service a bit slow, co-op volunteers I'm guessing, but hey, who's complaining...good sound system as well! Buen Provecho ( on the Guadalupe walking street).

set in a covered courtyard off the pedestrianised Calle de Guadelupe near the Zocalo, this place has a spacious and comfortable ambience. The menu is a mixture of Italian and Mexican. Prices very reasonable - spaghetti dishes about 50-60 pesos (£2.50-3.00), pizzas about 100 pesos. Wine at 160 pesos a bottle. Service and quality very good. One of our group... More

I ate here late yesterday afternoon (Sunday) after walking past it and looking in all week. Maybe the description in the guide book of being a bit hip and cool had put me off until now. Anyway, what a wonderful place. Great background music playing, rich decoration and furniture, lovely high ceiling with glass windows which made it feel like... More

I eat at TA regularly - good breakfasts, good daily meals off the "menu del dia"; complete meals, reasonably priced (actually very economical), very good service, and a roomy and open indoor atmosphere. TA is Zapatista central, not only in decor; the indoor surrounding shops ARE from Zapatista villages and groups. (Forget the older stereotypes of the EZLN; it is... More

We ate here 3 times during our 2 week stay in San Cristobal de Las Casas. It became our favorite place to go for a casual meal. We had excellent soups and good pizza. The large menu also includes Mexican specialties and burgers. There is often live music. The dining area is in a large comfortable covered patio and is... More

We had the shrimp and chicken mole and started with some sopes. This place lived up to every bit of the nice reviews we read to select it and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. As an added plus it is run by supporters of indigenous rights so their good meals and good works go hand in hand.
