We found this place just wandering around Tulum pueblo side. We sat in the peaceful back patio area and had wonderful coffee and crepes! My parents went back here the next day for another breakfast.

This restaurant is an unexpected find in downtown Tulum. The menu includes escargot which was really delicious. The menu is diverse, the location is right off the main drag and the service was great. We sat out on the patio and ate a delicious meal with wine, appetizers and the main course at a near budget price. Loved Le Bistro... More

This was a nice surprise. A high quality French restaurant with a nice ambience in Tulum Pueblo. I don't know why people pay almost twice as much to eat in the hotels and restaurants along the beach when there are nice places like this, and much less epensive, in Tulum. It's off the main street, so easy to miss if... More

The salads here are very good, the patio in back was a pleasant surprise and the meals are affordable priced. Located in the middle of town this excellent eatery is easy to get to and easier to enjoy. The front patio is great for people watching and the back patio is a garden setting in the middle of town, perfect... More

Good French food for a reasonable price. Would go again, had the pork special for 110 peso. Good deal and the sauces are outstanding. Found the service to be a bit slow, it it is mexico. Next door construction a bit loud and was still going on after 9 pm. Hard working folks.

Great food, great service, great atmosphere!!! We had breakfast and dinner here several times and we loved everything we tried. The owners are usually on the premises and are very friendly and ready to please you. They are open late. They are closed on Saturday. Enjoy!!

You can choose to sit out front on the street or in the back in the garden area. It has a very large menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We went for dinner and the Tuna was very good.

I cannot speak more highly of this restaurant, me and my partner visited here after coming across it on a back road in downtown tulum and it was gorgeous, the food was well priced and the service was great, you were frequently visited to check everything was fine and they were very accommodating. The staff spoke excellent English which made... More

I love this place! Great coffee/espresso, pastries, crepes, and omelets! They have everything you need to get your day going. You won't find traditional Mexican huevos rancheros here. Think French. A great find in a Tulum pueblo!
