Enjoyed our breakfast here. Wonderful atmosphere and excellent service. We were looking for the more traditional American breakfast and that is not what is offered but the cuisine is very tasty and wonderfully prepared. I had the smoked salmon on homemade bread and a tasty green salad. Also a big glass of freshly juiced carrots. Not what I would normally... More

I really don't like to speak in those superlatives as in "best meal" but hands down LUM was amazing! My wife and I came here for a valentines dinner - we started with some well mixed cocktails at the bar and enjoyed the design of the place, modern, contemporary, yet with a nod to Mexico/Chiapas and its heritage. This vibe... More

My wife and I went for a Wedding Anniversary celebration dinner and it was our 1st time in San Cristobal. I choose this place based on TripAdvisor recommendations. I made a reservation in advanced and asked the hotel staff to decorate our table with rose petals and a roses bouquet. When we arrived that night, we both were surprised. The... More

Hands down the BEST restaurant in San Cristobal De Las Casas. From food, to service, ambience, attention, to decor this restaurant is simply perfection. It is very rare for me to repeat restaurants while on vacation; came here for breakfast, food AND service was so good we just had to come back for dinner! Yes is a bit more pricey... More

This is a true fine dining restaurant in a beautiful design hotel. We had really refined and delicious meal with friends. The chef is very creative. It was a meal that we would have enjoyed in Chicago and been happy to pay double or triple what we paid here. Not traditional Mexican food but chef-driven cuisine based on local ingredients....

Don't confuse this restaurant with Casa Lum on the walking street Real de Guadalupe: this is Restaurant Lum. It's wise to email for a dinner reservation on the weekend as the number of tables is limited. Formal, slightly distant, very professional service. Excellent food preparation and presentation. We enjoyed seeing the open gas flames on counter tops: it made us... More
