El ciruelo was a beautiful restaurant with extraordinary cuisine and the best you could have in Tepoztlan. But today that is only a memory. The view is still spectacular, but the food is no longer what it was. The device was slow but kind.

I would not think that typically reservations are needed on Fridays. It's really the best strategy you go there either as early as 1pm or - if you are before in Tepoztlan - you pass once by and make a reservation.
