I have gone each year over the last 5 once to charlie's. Each year the food got a little less tasty, little more poorly prepared. But this year it was awful. All of us in my party swore we would never come again. The chile rellenos were tasteless, the salsa was the same but even less interesting and spicy, the... More

Great margaritas, fun ambience and friendly service. We came here twice for margaritas and once again for a cappuccino. Great spot to kick back some tequila and enjoy the people watching in Tulum.

The food, ambience and service was incredible! I had the Mexican lime soup and my husband had the chicken enchilada with green sauce - they were both outstanding. They have Lassis!!

This restaurant became my favorite spot to eat in Tulum. The food was great, well-prepared and reasonably priced. The location is perfect for those just getting into Tulum from the bus terminal, you will most likely pass right by and if hungry definitely stop to eat. They serve delicious cocktails and desserts also. The atmosphere is like being at the... More

We were starved for vegetables after having meals heavy on meat and tortillas for much of our first week on the peninsula, and entered Charlie's after a glance at the menu revealed a vegetable plate. Our Mexican salad and vegetable plate made the perfect late dinner. The flavors were wonderfully balanced, and the subtle dressing on the salad was a... More

The place is very nice with a large rear courtyard eating area. The food was fine but the whole meal spoilt by the main course being delivered whilst we were still eating the starter.

Had a great lunch at Charlie's the other day in Tulum. We were recommend a visit and it was well worth it. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced Mexican classics. Generous portions and staff were very friendly. They put up with my bad Spanish no problem! The margaritas were delicious too. Highly recommend having a drink here too.... More

My mom and I decided in Charlie's one night for dinner and I have to say it was one of the best meals I've had! First of all the patio in the back of the restaurant is AMAZING! I had originally ordered the Carnitas however they were out so I ordered the stuffed pepper and I was actually glad I... More

We had two wonderful dinners at Charlie's. The food is amazing and reasonably prized. The Margaritas are fresh, strong and very good. Make sure you don't drink more than two :) We even had the opportunity to have a very interesting conversation with Charlie who is an amazing man. He told us lots about the current situation in Mexico and... More

Not a whole lot to say about this place. It was clean, the service was good, and the food was good. Nothing was incredible about the place, but overall a fine experience. The value was definitely good. An easy place to go get a bite to eat right on the main strip of Tulum without spending too much.
