My family wanted to try some authentic Chiapas cuisine and after reading the reviews for this place we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The staff was extremely attentive and we received various little appetizers as a courtesy from the chef. The food was really good and the presentation was impeccable.

We had a party of 5 for late comida at this wonderful restaurant. The food is truly excellent and beautifully presented. They use organic products and offer a nice variety of drinks with a unique coffee presentation. It is a must for foodies visiting San Cristobal!!

This is the place you go if you want an upscale dining in San Cristobal. Every dish is well thought out using fresh local ingredients to create their own unique version of traditional dishes from the region. Service is Top Notch with waiters taking time to explain each dish and ingredients used. A new way to learn about and experience... More

I would recommend Tierra y Cielo for a special occasion or a group dinner! The staff was very friendly (and we were a Spanish speaking group) and shared all sorts of information about how they source from local cooperatives and farmers. They also support other businesses in San Cristobal and led us to Carajillo coffee roasters (also awesome). THe wine... More

We had a fantastic meal with great service. The wine selection was good but the mignon in three chiles and the chicken breast with mole was outstanding.

We had the degustation menu with paired wines. Excellent dishes and wines. Excellent service. Would not be out of place in Paris or London.

The atmosphere is elegant and pleasant. The service was very good, but the food left something to be desired, in my opinion. I had chicken with two mole sauces which I found a bit bland, although the presentation was very nice. Maybe I just went there on an off day?
