Huge portions!

Great food and surprisingly inexpensive! I had the ceviche and my wife had nachos. Both plates were enough for 2 and we spent less than $20 The owner served us and was super friendly. Nice clean location on a safe corner with lots of shops on the block.

The only positive thing about this place was that our waiter was lovely. Everything else was pretty dreadful. We almost passed on it, tipped off by the pictures of food on the menu (always a bad sign) and the stickered-over prices, but we did not want to go back to a place we had been to before. Bad mistake.

Very good adress with very good food...not expensive compared to all the restaurants along poca baila beaches that are mostly touristic places. The restaurant is local,so is the food.we had an amazing lobster a la plancha served with vegetables ,rice and a glass of wine for 250 pesos.you can't expect the wine to be an amazing one for this price...

After trudging up and down the main street, checking out the predictable Mex faire, the two for one all day happy hour appealed. The Pollo Pibil was excellent, slowly cooked to falling apart and tasty. The two icy economical margaritas were great. Not so fond of the Mexican meat plate, reminded me of an Argentinian style mixed grill I had... More

We stopped in for happy hour on our first day in town, and came back for more ceviche the very next day. Friendly staff, 2-for-1 Happy Hour specials, and enormous portions of ceviche. Highly recommend. Ask for Edgar!

This was our favorite meal while in Tulum - Pueblo. We ate all our meals and stayed in the actual Pueblo, the the beach area. Meals were priced great and big portions. Beer was on special. This is on the main drag so you can people watch and enjoy cheap drinks as well.

Stopped here at random. Great location in Tulum, right off the main road, surrounded by other shops. Had the Mexican style fish fillet which was delicious! The agua de piña was also very refreshing...I had to large goblets. Service was great. Would definitely recommend.

We stopped in here on our first night in Tulum while we were still getting our bearings; we re glad we stopped. My husband had the fish tacos which were fantastic and I had the chicken tacos that were very good as well. We each had a couple of beers and our tacos for 220 pesos! It was an excellent... More

This little restaurant in the center of Tulum offers simple traditional dishes at unbeatable prices. The waiter is very friendly and does everything to please you. Perfect place for lunch.

The ceviche here was incredible and huge. We also loved the chicken mole. The prices are ridiculously low compared to anything at any of the resorts. This whole part of town is quite a find but this was our favorite restaurant by far. we have been there 5 times spanning 3 trips over 5 years. Do yourself a favor and... More
