Siento que la comida está ocasión estuvo insípida, muy caro y las tortillas se endurecen rápido, ojalá pudieran mejorar eso, es un lugar maravilloso, gracias.

Estuvo muy buena la comida. Todo son muy amables en general, y las órdenes llegan muy rápido. Pero hay tanta gente que a veces no te ponen tanta atención. El costo demasiado elevado, pero vale la pena probarlo al menos una vez.

Definitely the best option if you are visiting the Pyramids, but the food is just average in my opinion. Service was good and beautiful and unique place to have a restaurant.

Gran comida, ordenamos corte de carne y el sabor es delicioso y la ración muy buena, la salsa de xoconostle con guajillo y limón es excelente! ojalá hubiera opciones de jarras de agua y cerveza, ya que solo hay la opción de pedirlas por vaso.
Los precios son altos en general, depende de tu hambre o lo que ordenes , puede costarte alrededor de $600 pesos una comida por persona.
Por otra parte, al parecer hay un problema justo al descender de la escalera de la cocina, ya que en el rato que pasé ahí (90 min), hubo 3 accidentes en donde se cayeron los platos, por lo que es inevitable voltear y ver que los comensales cerca del área estaban incómodos.
En general es una buena experiencia que sí recomiendo.

I was pleasantly surprised by my experience at La Gruta. I had read poor reviews about the food, but really wanted to check out the novel experience of a restaurant inside a cave. The food was flavorful and interesting, but lacked salt (this is an easy fix). The cocktail was also inventive and I was excited to try it, but it turned out to be far too sweet! The space is calm and cool, the chairs are colorful, tucked inside the dim cavern. They have a neat legend and offering, which is how you end your meal. I liked this finishing touch.

Un lugar increíble, con comidas deliciosa y atención muy buena. Entendieron que como turistas no consumimos comida picante y fueron muy claros con los ingredientes de los platos. Además decoraron el plato del postre de cumpleaños.

Got very sick after this, had mutton and crickets which my body isn’t used to which could have contributed to this. Girlfriend is a PA and says this food couldn’t have caused my sickness because of quickly I got sick after eating it (10-20 minutes after eating) but it sort of messed the whole experience up for me. Cave was cool. Service was decent, food was a 4/10 at best. Being sick sucked

The location was beautiful, service was attentive and sweet and the cocktails were great. BUT the food was awful. I’m still mad about the wasted calories.

Since it clearly gave off the gimmicky tourist hot spot vibe when we booked we figured the food wouldn’t be anything fantastic and at least tolerable. However, the dishes ranged from ugh blah to incredibly inedible. Most items were pretty bland (or over salted) and the panuchos yucatecos that my son ordered was one of the worst things I’ve ever put into my mouth (I tasted it after I noticed he hadn’t gotten past the first bite). In the end they cleared a table of full plates. Wish we had just gotten drinks.

Please note that it was Christmas Day, so maybe they had the reserve cook’s brother’s cousin’s friend’s mother-in-law’s new boyfriend’s son who doesn’t cook much on duty.

Un lugar magnífico para la degustación de los deliciosos platillos que se ofertan. además de la ubicacion del lugar que te transporta a otro tiempo y me parece muy buena actividad la entrega de la vela a los visitantes para realizar el ritual prehispanico.
