Beautiful, unique space. But food was bland and disappointing. The performers were good, although the ladies coukd have been more enthusiastic. They looked bored while performing their dances.

We were trying to find a place to eat before going to the Teotihuacan pyramids but all the restaurants on the area were very scary with people almost jumping in your car to make you enter them... So we had kind of given up and stopped trying to decide what to do.. "How do we grab a bite before going... More

A great place to enjoy a meal after a day at Teotihuacan enjoying the Pyramids. After climbing both the Pyramid of the Sun & the Pyramid of the Moon one works up quite an appetite! We visited around 2;30 on a Sunday – it was packed! However, they did find us a table after a short wait of around 15... More

After climbing the Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan this restaurant is the perfect place for a relaxing rest & meal. It is the cutest underground cave which used to be used for storing fruits and now is a restaurant. I only had appetizers, but the quesadillas & Aztec cheese w/chorizo were both great.

This amazing restaurant is located inside a cave, just a block from the pyramids. It serves Mexican food and they make a show of typical mexican dances. I enjoyed it so much.

What a beautiful location! La Gruta is located in the base of a cave and can get very packed on weekends. We went for comida (3 PM) and the place was ghost town. We ordered food and had trouble getting 3 split checks as in most Mexican restaurants. We understand that's not the way people in Mexico do things, but... More

After a long visit to teotihuacan's pyramids, the only place that is worth stopping for a beer or even lunch is this one. It is 50 m or less from entrance number 5. This restaurant is set up in a cave. Quality of food is not bad, service could be better but considering where you are it is ok. It's... More

This place is definitely worth a look. The concept is interesting, but the food is ordinary and expensive (plus surcharge just to be in the cave).

We came here after seeing he yelp reviews. All excellent. Service started out excellent. We ordered drinks and escamoles - Aztec ant caviar. The ant larvae were excellent and worth the adventure. My prickly pear (tuna) margarita didn't have a hint of tequila. For comida my sons ordered the rabbit and lamb in leaves. Both excellent. I had the cecino-... More
