We went here for lunch yesterday. The food was great but the service was terrible. The waiter was slow and unattentive to our needs and the food took 45 minutes to arrive at our table. We have been here before and just ordered coffee - that always arrived quickly but make sure you have a lot of time if you... More

La frontera is a very nice Restaurant and offers also tables in the colonial yard with beautiful flowers. It invites to spend a relaxed day and staying longer than the meal. They serve a variation of healthy dishes, shakes, smoothies and coffee. Vegetarian alternatives are available and very deliscious.

Frontera is a pretty eclectic place you can either take a coffee, a beer or take a fine breakfast with artisanal bread. The please is very relaxing, it totally worth expending an evening just chilling.

La Frontera offers very good coffee and baked goods in a comfortable atmosphere with couches, easy chairs, board games, books and an airy, sunny patio. However, the soup we tried was insipid and the sandwich on bagel was nothing special. In fact, the bagel served resembled one of those mass-produced ones sold at Sam's Club. Just the same, I wish...

La Frontera has become one of my favorite places for breakfast and lunch in San Cristóbal. With a wide and greatly selected coffee from around the world, healthy juices and salad options, and a lovely garden where to bring your dogs (they're totally dog- friendly), I can spend long hours working or chatting with friends enjoying a cool peaceful environment....

Very good pizzas (I recommend the "5 formaggi") and original swiss fondue! We ended up coming here 3 nights in a row for different reasons, and haven't been deceived at all. Closed on wednesdays.
