This is the BEST Restaurant in San Cristobal. Terrace is adorable, nice ambience and music. Service was friendly and attentive. The Mole Coleto, was one of the BEST I've ever eaten. We even bought it. Returned the next day to have enmoladas for breakfast. Tasacalate bread was tempting. Congratulations to the Chef Martha Zepeda.

All things that the reviews said was true! A beautiful restaurant, with an attentive service. The waiter was always helping us to understand what was each vegetable, different colors of tortilla, etc. Was a pleasure time with the local food.

Amazing, atmosphere. Decent prices. Great service. Away from center chaos. Delicious food. Can't remember the name of that desert. It was the highlight of the night. Main course was delicious but cold.

With a touch of new cuisine but keeping traditional ingredients, this restaurant achieves a lovely simplicity in its dishes, the cheese plate and chinquelguajes were really nice. Great service and a pleasant center patio created a very enjoyable experience.

Food, service, the place, everything is outstanding! I've never tried better quesadillas than "Quesadillitas Tierra y Cielo", definitely recommended! By far, the best regional culinary option in San Cristobal
