A MUST visit in San Cristobal!

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

The food and the service were both outstanding! I was impressed with the uniqueness of the food as well as the taste and the presentation. The service was excellent as well.

They will shove a iPad in your face to rate them at the end; be honest. They do not deserve to be in this business.

Went here for my partners birthday. Had tamales as a starter, and were really nice for such a simple food. Had really nice mains and a nice bottle of wine to suit. Service was great, and they gave my partner a free and nice desert for her birthday, along with a surprise "happy birthday". Would recommend for something nice.

The place is not so bad. Food was ok, we tried tacos - recommend them. I had spinach soup - was nice and tastful, but the traditional soup was a failure. My friends tried it and were dissapointed. Ambient is ok, service was ok too. But the food is SOOO overpriced, so the overall impression of attempt to be classy... More

We came here after reading all the great reviews. The food was good, but not with the money. The place was also a bit up tight trying to be fancy but failing to do so. The tacos were good, the tamales as well but the transitional soup disappointing.

San Cristobal is filled with interesting restaurants but if you want to go upscale this is a very good choice. I had the pork dish and my wife the pasta, and both were very good (though possibly not _quite_ as good as the dinners we had at Restaurante Lum in the Hotel Bo). You won't be disappointed by the food... More
