We were visiting the ruins and stopped here for lunch. The food was not very memorable, but it didn't matter because the atmosphere was cool and the wait staff were really nice. The chips and salsas that they give you were really tasty.

Perfect dining place after your visit to the Temple of the Sun! It's in a cave-- how cool!! Love the food, the drinks and the live performance. And there is a little candle lighting ritual for each table after dinner!

I took my family and a couple of friends to La Gruta after we went to the pyramids and it was a great experience. You normally need a reservation but we got early and waited for around 20 mins. We had a great Mexican lunch,...More
