Eat in a cave? And the food's good? Yep, it is. You gotta go. I tried the mole and it was excellent. A trip to the pyramids in Teotihuacan is not complete without La Gruta.

Perfect place for a lunch after visiting Teotihuacan, where there are dozens of big restaurants catering to tourist groups. The setting of La Gruta, in a partially open roof ancient volcano cave is a plus. Typical Mexican food, folkloric music and a mystique atmosphere. Do not miss trying the escamoles (ant eggs), chinicuiles (red worms) and chapulines (grasshoppers): all wonderfully prepared and delicious.

The maggots were delicious, highly recommend them. Do not be afraid to try it. Also the tequila Casa de Dragon was great.

Went there on sunday for dinner time and the lady writing the waiting list said we had to wait for an hour and a half, but in 20 mins got our tabs. The food is not tasty, the waiters made a lots of mistakes, the entrée came out last for example. There was a folk ballet performing for half an hour. That is why I recommend to go there and just have a drink is a bad choice to eat there.

This old cave has been transformed in a restaurant, with more than a siecle of tradition, the restaurant serves mexican food (central Mexico tastes), so if you want to try various plates you should ask for Platon Mexicano, with mole, tamal, taco dorado de pollo, arroz y frijoles. The prices and the amoubt of food by person are fair.
