My boyfriend and I ate here our last night in Tulum. After reading TripAdvisor reviews. We arrived before sunset and had a nice table outside. We had three different waitstaff serving us. The chips and different variety of salsa was good. My boyfriend ordered the Arrachera and I ordered the NY strip, meats were cooked to our desired tastes. My... More

Small but mighty, El Asadero serves an amazing steak. I had the Arrachera cooked perfectly medium rare. If I lived in Tulum, I'd eat here once a week.

This is a small eatery away from the main avenida but the staff are pleasant and the food is good. They don't serve alcohol. We've been here a few times as it is a good place to get a bite to eat but I wouldn't recommend it for a special occasion.

The arrachera was amazing, as was the service and atmosphere. This was our second time here and it was even better this time than it was the first. Excellent restaurant, don't miss it.

We ate here a couple of years ago when the place was still relatively new on the Tulum dining scene. We had heard it had gotten very popular which is why on a Fri or Sat night, you now need a reservation or be prepared to wait. The service is top notch and the friendliness extreme. The special skirt steak... More

We had a terrific meal here. Fresh lobster, great tacos, wonderful appetizer (sausage and melted cheese. Friendly service and a good wine list. By 7 pm there was a long waiting line. Will definitely return!

We enjoyed leaving the hotel area and heading to this great restaurant in downtown tulum. The tacos with the steak meat was delicious. Great service not as expensive as other spots. Great fun meal

Went here for dinner for the second time on a recent trip to Tulum and it was as good as I remember. Had the arrachera special again that comes with chorizo, nopales, and either a grilled potato or onion. So delicious! Some of the best steak I've ever had. The atmosphere is fantastic and the staff are extremely attentive and... More
