Good Mexican food in Tulum

We had lunch here after walking through the ruins nearby. The service was excellent and the food was very good - Filete Veracruz and Chili Relleno. Cheap too. I'd definitely go back.

Recommended by a tourist advisor we took the advise and were glad we did. We were seated quickly, offered service with a smile and great food, prepared quickly, nice environment, outside umbrella, dining al fresco, and hot tasty food. We had brunch, consisting of guacamole, chicken tacos, one breakfast egg, pancake, protein selection and fajitas beef with onion and green... More

You know a restaurant is good when it's full of locals and you stare at the food as you walk past the tables...at least that is what I did. The guacamole, nachos and pickled vegetables for starter were really tasty. My main was delicious and also generous quantity of food. The service is fast and they are very friendly. There... More

Ate at Don Cafeto while staying in Tulum and had a great fish soup. It was really closer to the bar-b-que shrimp at New Orlean's Pascal's Manale, a la Mexico. It was more of a stew than the soup described in the menu. We also had the whole fish, Red Snapper. Very good and very filling.

Our tour guide brought us to this small restaurant on the main drag in Tulum town. The setting is like a sidewalk cafe. It has an open kitchen, modest prices and the best food we had in Mexico.

Great prices, wonderful spicy salsa (use caution), also a great bowl of pickled veggies, also quite spicy, to start every meal (or even if you just stop in for drinks). The seafood dishes are outstanding, and everything else is excellent too. Tried a number of restaurants, and some were quite good, but we kept going back to Don Cafeto. Oh... More

It was the only restaurant I tried at the town in Tulum. I had dinner on a Sunday, the place was 80% capacity, this speaks well of a restaurant so I went and checked it out, I can only say: DELICIOUS! Everything was fresh, home made taste, a good variety of plates to choose from. I had the Moke Enchiladas,... More

Absolutely loved the mole in this place. The arrachera was great too. Served with a massive bowl of pickled vegetables, I felt really bad we couldn't even make a dent in them with the massive food serves including corn chips. Highly recommended.
