good food

The quality of food was good but the service was a bit slow. You also enjoyed the music played by street artists. It was a very busy / packed restaurant so you can't do much talking if you want to have a quiet chat. Nonetheless it's a good restaurant to enjoy some meat!

My husband and I had fajitas for 2 here....we really should have just had one order as there was too much food. The food was good, but I have to tell you about the natural limonada Wow!!! That was the best fresh lime juice I have ever had....give it a try.

We somehow got a table even though there was a massive crowd and seemed to be a wait. The food is definitely worth it - must go here. Tulum is filled with vegan vegetarian organic places - which is great, but I needed a steak. Definitely have a meal here.

It's definitely someplace I'd recommend, and I'd come back to in future trips to Tulum. I got their signature steak that comes with a choice of a couple sides, all good.

Great grilled food, including the nopalitas and love the 4 sauces that come with the chips when you sit down. Extraordinary value for the price and lots of choices. We go back there everytime we are in Tulum.

We ate here 2 nights in a row. Service and food are excellent. Margaritas were tasty. We wish we lived closer, we'd go there all the time to eat. We will stop by on our next trip

The best thing about this restaurant is the arrachera - a thin steak, a bit like flank steak. It was beautifully cooked and very tasty. The margaritas were also amazing. We also had a salad with cactus which was a large potion and definitely didn't go away hungry. The safe were attentive and friendly, but I recommend sitting inside the... More

I got the recommended steak, Argentinian style, the one for 200 pesos. It came with chorizo and a few other sides. It was excellent and well worth the visit.

Good food and great value. My fiancé and I ate here our last night in Tulum and we both agree that it was one of our better meals during our trip. We found this place by asking a local for a dinner recommendation and they suggested Asadero. When we arrived at the restaurant we noticed that it had a descent... More
