This is a MUST restaurant if you are in Tepoztlan, not only is the food great but they have an amazing view. Try to go during sunset. Order pastel de elote, chile nogada (in season)

We visited at around 9 pm and may have overstayed our welcome. Their wine list is great and the food is amazing! Even though there was a storm outside, the place felt so calm and at peace. A definite must when in Tepoz!
