Le Bistro used to be one of my favorite places for breakfast and lunch in Tulum (I live here). Unfortunately, I went a couple of months ago and had the worse crepes I've ever experienced. They were more like what you see in the many hotels in the area, rather than a true thin french crepe. I'm guessing they changed... More

We are fans of authentic French bistro food which is almost impossible to find in New England. The closest to us would be Montreal or Quebec City. Still testing the waters on our second night in Tulum, we chose Le Bistro. After ordering drinks the waiter brought a plate of bread with a dipping sauce. After one bite, we both... More

Delightful garden setting for savory light meals. The freshest ingredients for fruity margaritas. Friendly and fun staff.

Here you can get a really good cup of coffee and some delicious meals during the whole day to a really fair price. It is a relaxed environment where you can bring your laptop and hangout for hours. It is a bit away from the main road which make the place quiet and the. It is close to other nice... More

Most of their iconic traditional French dishes are based on frozen meats, such as duck, filet mignon , mushrooms, etc....Those imported components are expensive yet can't compete for taste with locally sourced, fresh ingredients....so stick with simpler fare where the chef has the opportunity to be creative with local seafood, fruits and vegetables

This delicious restaurant is not to be missed if you visit Tulum... Breakfast here is sublime as well as dinners... We were in Tulum for 9 days and could not resist coming back here as many as five times. Everything we tried on the menu was excellent and well priced. On our first night there we were pleased to have... More

Had many meals at Le Bistro on this Tulum trip. From the yummy breakfast, the light and healthy lunches, to the lovely dinners, we were always happy! The Baguette Parme was second to none... mmm...
