Great place to get away from crowds and good food.

Charlie's has been here in Tulum forever!! Nice garden area in back, good food, reasonably priced. You can spend an evening talking and drinking and enjoying yourself. No one is going to rush you off.

Hands down the BEST margarita I've had in a very long time. Coconut margarita so good we had more than one! Good hot sauces. Great chips. Cool spot in town owned by a super groovy dude who takes credit cards! Win.

Went to Charlie's after a day at Tulum ruins and the beach. We went in because the back garden looked really inviting, and weren't disappointed. We ordered a mango margarita (tasted like it was made with real mangoes), guacamole, chicken lime soup, grapefruit jicama salad, tinga de pollo,, and tres leches cake. All of the dishes were delicious, though tinga... More

We stopped into Charlie's for an early dinner on a Sunday after visiting Valladolid for the day. It is a casual, laid back restaurant in town, with good food and prices, as well as cute decor. The service was excellent and we overall enjoyed our meal overlooking the main street in Tulum. Also, fyi, they take credit cards. Overall, I... More

Discovered Charlie's the day we arrived in Tulum. It had cold beer and made a good margarita - great location to enjoy my last two cuban cigars and watch the world go by. Service was exceptional and the food was good enough to bring us back a couple of times during our stay in Tulum. They serve a large portion... More

A large spacious place, a great place to stop for a bite to eat, or just a drink. Their walled garden interior space is a gallery and also has a large number of used books for sale, a great place to find a beach read. The owner is a very nice guy and quite a local character. Worth giving a... More

Charlie's was our first eating out experience in Tulum town. It was recommended by our hotel manager for a good lunch at a nearby location. We had a good meal, good service and it has a a great location along the main street. Based on this restaurant's ranking, I would never have tried it had the hotel manager not recommended... More
