We had a wonderful evening here with chillies filled with cheese that came with a spicy orange sauce. We loved the Mexican wine and the professional service. And the price!

This restaurant is the perfect lunch retreat from a busy day shopping. Menu offers light salads, pizza or Mexican delights. Not crowded, soft music, and great service. Bar available but with altitude best to stay with Water for sipping.

Yum flavors and great service with beautiful presentation. The tamale appetizer with rib meat and mole was tasty if a bit sweet. Aguachiles was unique and had a good amount of shrimp. Recommend the tomato ensalada.

A great place, beautiful surroundings and peaceful atmosphere. Great food, must come to this place if in Chiapas, although not cheap, I would definitely come here again. Service is also worth mentioning, Eduardo helped us decide delicious dishes.

Hello Gourmetde... The Lum Restaurant prices are above average for San Cristobal. Expect to pay more than $300 pesos per person without drinks. I wish you a great experience in San Cristobal.
