Visited for early dinner in October. Fast service but it was quite empty. Staff were friendly. Food was good, not as good as some I had this trip but good enough. I probably didn't help myself by choosing Chicken Fajitas (a bit unimaginative). It was nice and hot though and the tortillas it came with were nice. It is just... More

My friend and I ate here almost a month ago on our trip in Mexico and it was one of our favourite restaurants. The food was delicious! We tried nachos and they were like nothing we've ever eaten before - to die for, and our mains were just as good. The lovely Armando was our waiter for the evening and... More

Our group had arrachera, enchiladas, stuffed peppers and soup. The beef enchiladas or carne was marinated thin sliced carne asada on... More

Pretty good. I had a mojito and a shrimp fajita. I was under the impression they had English menus (from tripadvisor reviews) but the waiter gave us Spanish menus and his English wasn’t the best. We were the only ones at the restaurant for lunch. We were hoping for a view more people. All in all, it was a good... More

We had a seafood platter in La Malquerida and it was amazing! the octopus and the fish fillet was so tasty and yummy. Drinks were also really good probably the best frozen Margarita I had during my stay in Mexico. Staff are nice and friendly.

La Malquerida has the best service of any restaurant we visited in Tulum. The waiters are super attentive and take care of you, constantly making sure you have a full beverage, plenty of napkins and delicious food. The shrimp with garlic butter are really awesome here, the best shrimp I had in Tulum. The nachos were are great appetizer too.... More

Great little Mexican place in the very touristic Tulum. A great place to relax and try out the local dishes. Food was excellent and fresh and the service implacable.

Four of us went to this charming restaurant in Tulum and were greeted with enthusiasm on a very rainy night. They made us all feel comfortable and served great Mexican and seafood dishes which helped us forget about how wet we were! Armando even fashioned a rosebud made from a colorful napkin for each of the women in our party.... More
