I never thought it was a real cave, but the place is very well conditioned to function as a restaurant. The food is good and the service is excellent. I had to wait for an hour, so I recommend making a reservation.

La Gruta restaurant is located just across from gate 5 of Teotihuacan pyramid. The location is very unique which is in a cave. This place is always busy, full of tourists, so be prepared to wait more than 30 minutes. There is a waiting area...More

Amazing restaurant where you can lunch inside a real cave, live music an presentation of traditional, regional and Aztecs dancers. Price are ok but I was expecting more of the food quality.

The food was great and definitely reflected traditional Mexican fare with plenty of grilled meats and vegetables. If you're feeling adventurous, I definitely recommend trying the chapulines (crickets)... they had...More

The cave was very cool with hundreds of candles illuminating one end of the cave. Food was very good, and the service was good although it was a Thursday later in the afternoon and it wasn't crowded. Don't miss it!

After spending a few hours at Teotihuacan, you’ll get hungry. During your drive to the complex, you’ll pass loads of glorified tents that are now ‘restaurants’. Drive past them and go to La Gruta. It is a bit touristy and a bit busy, but it...More
