After our hot air balloon ride with Flying Pictures Mexico, we enjoyed a traditional Mexican breakfast buffet. The restaurant was decorated for Dia de Muertos. The food and service were both very good.

This is the regular stop whenever you take the Teotihuacan Pyramids tour. I really don't get it. The food is not good at all. They have a buffet, though it includes a wide variety of options, it's hard to choose. None of them are good. The best thing of the buffet is the tacos station, however, you have to wait... More

This is a buffet based restaurant with many artistic presentations while you eat. The food was good, with a great variety of choices. I suggest to offer different kind of drinks, not only Jamaica.

The restaurant is near the Teotihuacan site and is the place that the tourist busses stop for lunch on their way back to Mexico City. Our guide also suggested that we might be interested and so we went. The centrally located buffet has a wide range of dishes which, in some cases needed explaining. However, the food was well cooked... More

Okay, maybe this place is for tourist, but hey, we're tourists and we had some really yummy food here. It's a buffet with a lot of traditional Mexican food. Our guide came with us and explained all the dishes. I ate way too much but everything I tried was delicious. They have free entertainment too.

This is a nice, clean restaurant that you'll visit if you are taking a tour of Teotihuacan with a guided tour. It is meant for tourists only, and is priced accordingly. The service is good and the staff speak at least some English for the most part. The food is of good quality, some of it made fresh on the... More

The restaurant is nice place to enjoy a tasty meal, not too spicy for tourist and great flavor for locals :).. The buffet is a great option for around 10.00USD but drinks are very expensive (and not included of course). I gladly recommend to have a nice meal. Just they are not prepared for too many groups at the same... More

As part of a tour to the Pyramids our guide took us here for lunch. There was a buffet option or a la carte. We chose the a la carte and had a very good red salmon dish and an interesting chicken and banana dish. The buffet looked to be good value and included soup and quesadillas. The staff were... More

We visited as a group of tourists and brought to this restaurant after enjoying very much the historic site of pyramids built by people by a mysterious origin. After climbing one or two we were hungry so we were brought to this restaurant. The food was presented on a long buffet full of delicious food in a very pleasant dining... More
