Entering into this restaurant is already something that I'd recommend if you're visiting Tepoztlán. As we sat, service was outstanding but as food was delivered we found it to be just good. I would have thought that given the reviews and presentation it would be...More

This is a very nice restaurant, in all the tables you can see the mountain “el tepozteco”. All the food is delicious, is Mexican gourmet food. Try enchiladas of cochinita pibil or enchiladas de pato with pipian. If there’s a lot of people, you should...More

One of the bets places in Tepoztlan. Food is amazing. Service is good. But best of all is to be on the terrace with the beautiful view of Tepozteco.

Very good food and drinks. The place is also very nice and you can have a great view of Tepozteco. Make reservations in advance because it’s always full. The only complaint is the service, slow and not helpful at all.

We recently celebrated an anniversary dinner here. Very attractive outdoor setting. Creative and beautifully presented cuisine (the tower of nopal, huitlacoche, and goat cheese was a favorite). Service was professional, albeit without warmth. Definitely the right choice for special occasions.

An awesome menu, great service and a wonderful location in the center of this magical town called Tepoztlan. All their recipes are very natural and tasteful.

El Ciruelo is by far the best place to eat delicious mexican food while enjoying a majestic view of the Tepozteco mountain. It is located in the heart of the town and it is an undeniable classic to go with friends, family or your partner.

A lovely open courtyard dining area with bright colors/decor, a wonderful view and good service. They do not open until 1pm, so be sure to have a decent breakfast if you're out walking/exploring Tepotzlan. We passed on ordering a dessert, so we could visit Tepotznieves...More

It is spacious and half outside, with a good menu, Mexican food, and a good wine selection and service. Simple place, it was the most lively we could find during a quiet evening in Tepoztlan.

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.
