Recomended by the staff at Bo hotel. This was a good choice. Great tastes from regional Chipas cooking. Good blending of Habaneras in the dishes as we asked for medium to hot.

If you look for regional dishes when traveling, this restaurant (with small courtyard, dining room and small hotel) is one you won't want to miss when in this magical center of the Mayan Highlands. A few block uphill from the main square ("parque"), this is your chance to try state and city ("coleto") specialties. Chef Zepeda is a local, trained... More

We had heard this was the best restaurant in the area so were anxious to try it. We should have reconsidered when we asked the receptionists in the hotel where the bar was and despite the sign saying 'hotel, restaurant and bar' they had no idea what we were talking about. We gave up and found a more accommodating bar... More

This is the best restaurant in San Cristobal de las Casas. Food, service and presentation are all excellent I was in San Cristobal 9 days and ate at Tierra y Cielo six times - that's how much I liked it.

I asked the server captain to clarify if one of the dishes was a type of Carpaccio and he said it was exactly Carpaccio. However, when I received the dish it was something totally different from Carpaccio. It was cooked meat and nothing close. Disappointing. Furthermore, what was brought to me was covered in an overpowering lime flavour and spoiled... More

Tierra y Cielo is a kind of fancy mexican food restaurant. We ordered the "gorditas" which were very good! Also the "cecina", steak "a los 3 chiles" and an "adobo" pork, everything was delicious, and also the service is ok. They tell you in the menu if the dishes are spicy, very spicy or not spicy. The 2-icons spicy IT... More

I was lucky to find this restaurant. I know about Mexican food because I am Mexican and I had tried other places in San Cristobal but nothing has come close to the quality of food I found here. It is clearly a result of the dedication of their chef and all the personal that are clearly committed to the success... More

We were looking forward to unique cuisine from Chiapas after seeing a number of fusion and international options in SCLC. What we ate was pretty generic and seemed no different from average Mexican food I'd had in chain restaurants in Mexico City. We went for brunch, and we got the "paquete," which meant our food came with coffee, bread, fruit,... More
