Hands down the BEST restaurant in San Cristobal De Las Casas. From food, to service, ambience, attention, to decor this restaurant is simply perfection. It is very rare for me to repeat restaurants while on vacation; came here for breakfast, food AND service was so good we just had to come back for dinner! Yes is a bit more pricey... More

This is a true fine dining restaurant in a beautiful design hotel. We had really refined and delicious meal with friends. The chef is very creative. It was a meal that we would have enjoyed in Chicago and been happy to pay double or triple what we paid here. Not traditional Mexican food but chef-driven cuisine based on local ingredients....

My wife and I shared each course. The presentation was beautiful, the service excellent and the food delicious. The wine was one we had never heard of called Skin Barbera. Wonderful.

Don't confuse this restaurant with Casa Lum on the walking street Real de Guadalupe: this is Restaurant Lum. It's wise to email for a dinner reservation on the weekend as the number of tables is limited. Formal, slightly distant, very professional service. Excellent food preparation and presentation. We enjoyed seeing the open gas flames on counter tops: it made us... More

We loved the atmosphere, service and food! Best breakfast in town! Prices are good too. I recommend the huevos Oaxaca or huevos Bo and the fruit platter.

This restaurant was a high-light in our 5 weeks in Mexico. We ate here twice. The food is excellently executed and very interesting. The menu has a mix of Mexican and International food with a Mexican twist. The high quality of the food, the excellent wine list was well supported by the very efficient and courteous wait staff. Highly Recommended!!

I was here with a group last March and as 20+ of us entered the space, we all ventured around with our eyes wide, taking in the spectacular decor and grounds. Candles floating on a floor of water (really!) in the centre dining area was the highlight. It felt like a fairy tale. Luckily, the food and service matched the... More
