Our cab driver recommended Don Cafeto for a nice place to stop and have lunch as we took a stroll through Tulum today and did some shopping. The service was decent (for Mexico) and the food was very good. A wonderful street band passed by and stopped to play a few songs while we were there having lunch, which was... More

The food and service is always great here. Instead of spending 100 pesos more eating at the beach places, eat here. Fun place, right in town and good selection of things to eat. We also take friends here.

We enjoyed breakfast here during our recent vacation in Tulum. Hotcakes, eggs, bacon and fruit. The cappuccino was especially tasty. Great service and wait staff.

The service was efficient. The food was decent but uninspiring. We had the Mexican Platter which had just too much cheese (used as the filler for each dish except the tacos). The enchilada sauce was tasty. Great for people watching.

But are afraid of some of the locals places, Don Cafetos is great. You will see locals and tourists there. The mole is delicious as are the enchiladas. True to traditional Mexican form chips and salsa and escabeche which is a pickled vegetable salad is served up while you wait. Live music for a Saturday afternoon was a treat.

Stuffed pepper was a really nice vegetarian dish. A place both with local and tourist which is not crowded... The mole was also good in traditional chocolate sauce...

We visited this very casual little cafe/restaurant on a day's tour of the ruins at Coba. It was almost full and very buzzy. A musical trio treated us to some great music whilst we ate. The food is unsophisticated - burgers and fries, plus other Mexican staples. Good pickled vegetables arrive when you are seated but beware of the chillies,... More

Three times traveled to Tulum and every single time, we eat here breakfast, lunch and/or dinner. The food is very authentic, quantity is more than we could ever eat at one meal, margaritas are so well made, and the servce is superb! Thank you Lorenzo and crew!

Great mexican food. Hot! Really nice atmosphere when the band starts playing. Service is ok. It is not trendy or cool but the food is great and local.
