Our group had 9 people and the two Sirloin steaks were tough and way over done. The lime chicken had to be sent back as there was no lime on it. The staff was friendly and the other dishes were good. Might try again but not the Sirloin.

I have been here twice...certainly the place is packed, noisy and happening, however, the food is not that great and the service is...well, inconsistent and the prices way too high and totally uncalled for.

My friends like it, I don´t. Not my choice. Won´t come back.

We were really disappointed in this place. You'd think after being in business for over 30 years, they would be pretty good. But the food was quite mediocre. The fettuccine carbonara was bland and pretty much tasteless. The Sopa Azteca had a good broth, but way too little of it. There were also way to many corn chips and no avocado or cheese. The salad was okay, but I had to ask for more dressing because there was hardly any. Although there were only a few people here, the service was slow. The dining room is nice, since it is in a courtyard. But the nice ambience doesn't make up for the lousy food.

La Luna Mextli is a unique place in Tepoztlan, right on the main street, across from the market and Tepoz Nieves (ice cream)-- its all close in this village. They serve a type of food unusual here, good hearty meat and vegetables. One of the best steaks in town, not the usually Mexican paper thin cuts, but nice cuts of filet and other steaks.Very tasty sauces. God Mexican food too, really nice arrechera. Generous portions-- you won't go hungry. Br sure to try the simple warm bread with butter and their hot sauce-- delicious while waiting for the main items. Drinks are good, tequila comes with a good sangria chaser and lemón. Choice of decent wines. You'll go away happy and satisfied.

Went to La Luna as the other restaurants we wished to visit were not open (low season, mid week). Restaurant has a bar area next to the street and restaurant seating around a central courtyard. Chose a table far from the loud music in the bar. Complimentary jicama and cucumber with lime juice, bread and butter. Ordered the tomato salad (large quantity), the chicken breast with lime (also large) with baby potatoes, carrots and zucchini plus the chicken crepes (2) with tomato, cream, cheese sauce. Washed the meal down with margaritas (tasty, light on tequila). Credit cards accepted, washroom not tried. One of the few restaurants open in the evening. Decent pricing for the quality and quantity.
