Good Place to Watch Soccer

This place was pretty touristy and kind of over priced. The food was decent especially the queso fundido but there are better places out there. We went to watch the World Cup and it has many TV's and plenty of seating. They did give free shots of tequila per goal, so that was fun!

So we were skeptical to eat at this place because all we saw in there were tourists and the big hats gave it a "sprint break" feel that made us think the food would suck. But it didn't! It was really good and staff was awesome! Would eat here again!

I took my special half to see the ruins in Tulum and then into Tulum Pueblo. We were hungry and where advised by the cab driver that El Mariachi was really goo food. He was right, our waiter, Adrian was happy, met us with a smile, and gave us really good service. We had The fried Grouper and Tacos El... More

This is not a place that I would recommend if you want authentic or good Mexican food, food was terrible, bad service, we had to chase the waiter to ask to bring plates and forks, or to ask for water, The do make sure to ask you for the tip regardless of the bad service.

We dined in this restaurant while in Tulum. We ordered a serving of Shrimp tortillas and Grilled Fish. Food tasted great! For dessert, we decided to share home-made Cacao ice cream. It was served on a Cacao half-shell. Two words: Heavenly and Awesome! It was not sugary sweet like a lot of cheap ice creams in Canada and in the... More

Friends recommended this for the drink in the hollowed-out coconut. They took us for the fresh pina colada in the coconut. It was pulpy and just okay. Not memorable in a positive way. Okay place for nachos and fajitas. The pescado was nice and light. Not very busy even on a Friday night. This is downtown Tulum on a main... More

This restaurant was within waking distance of our hotel. The food was very good, but the highlight of the meal was the ice cream/ They advertise home made ice cream. We each ordered the pineapple. Imagine our surprise when we each got a hollowed out frozen pineapple filled with the best ice cream I have ever eaten. It was pineapple... More
