Good food, very good service. The view of the downtown area is fabulous. Just be careful with what they charge for wine bottles.

It is a restura in a long terraza where you may able to see the downtown of tequsquiapan. They offer mexican gourmet and spicy dinner in a relaxed place. They have music on live which creates a romantic atmosphera. Excellentsalmon celery style, good meats and...seafood. Veryy nice wines from the region and excelent cheese fro. Tequisquiapan and surrondings. Price a little big high, but it worth it.More

Absolutely amazing Mexican food. Would highly recommend! The fish tacos were phenomenal! We also got the sandwiches, pork tacos, two orders of nachos and fried plantains and everything was amazing.

On the plus side, the location is great. One flight up, open-air terrace overlooking the plaza. The service was disinterested. The menu sounded good but the execution was not appetizing. I never thought a tampiquena could be boring. This came with plain meat, one little,...tiny, old enchilada and one small nopal on the side. No sauce, no other garnishes. It looked like food at a nursing home. This place should step up it's game.More

One idea would be to have an appetizer and enjoy the view from here, then have the rest of your meal somewhere else. The food doesn't live up to the prices.

Located above the central plaza, with nice views of the gardens and church. The food is delicious and nicely presented. The service is good and friendly. A little more expensive than other restaurants nearby, but understandable.

Thank you very much for your comments We were very glad to have you here. We hope seeing you soon in the near future!

The food and appetizers were really good. The place has a wonderful spot above and overlooking the central plaza with an outdoor grill. It's worth it to order something off the grill and sit and watch the people below, smell your dinner cooking and enjoy...a drink.More

We went there for lunch, we had sangria and soups and a steak. The tortilla soup was better than the mushroom soup or the chicken broth. We ordered goat cheese and crackers and a steak Food was quite condimented therefore it was neither too good...not extremely badMore

Perhaps the best restaurant among those we visited in Tequisquiapan (K'puchinos and Las Brasas were the others), and the only one worth writing about. "Comida casera", tasty, prepared at the moment, excellent service, best prices and a nice atmosphere make of Cilantro & Perejil a...must when dining or just for drinks in the town.More
