This place has a great view and the service is good. They serve abundant food that is ok. Probably the best thing to do it to get some drinks and appetizers

The food is not that amazing, average. The service is a little bit slow but it doesn't matter when you have such an amazing view. It is real calm if you ask a table at the terrace. Enjoy the wind, the far music and the café de olla.

The best view of La peña while you eat a great mexican food plate at an awsome price. Close to the center square of the small town

Happened to be walking by and wandered in. Ordered a gordita, thinking I was not really hungry, and then ordered about four more. They were soooo delicious! Place is very eclectic and great view of the monolith. Worth a visit.

The food left room for improvement. It was really busy with over 50 bikers so it must have been a mess at the kitchen. Our main course came first and cold. Our soups came after and also cold. But it was tasty. Their mole enchilada is much better than their local enchilada at this place. Everyone at the table truly... More
