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.

I went here with my girlfriend, to have some lunch. We were recommended by the hotel, I don't see why they did this. At first they were welcoming, and the food tasted ok, but when we got the bill the service not included part was circled and underlined, which I already didn't like, so I only gave a little. When...

If you want an amazing authentic Margarita in downtown Tulum, go to La Malquerida. Food was really good, totally satisfied my cravings for authentic mexican food.

Menu had so many options it was hard to choose -- Pollo Loco was insanely delicious. Restaurant is a favorite to tourists and locals alike; drinks abound and the atmosphere off the main street is a nice break from the traffic along the main drag. Servers were attentive and often a free shot of tequila is offered to cap your... More

Great service and food! Our first night in Tulum, we took a table outside to check out the Mayan music and dance being performed on the street. The enchiladas were crispy and the ingredients were delicious! Artful plating and good portion, but not too much.

Had a couple of dinners, a breakfast and a few drinks and everything was first class. Was my wife's first meal in Mexico for many years and it was great. Atmosphere was fantastic, staff were attentive and good at their jobs. As other people have mentioned the waiter made my wife a rose out of her napkin and we got... More

Another great find on TripAdvisor! The food was great! Everyone in our party very much enjoyed their dinner. However, they do not have any menus in English. Lucky for us, my husband is fluent in Spanish. Also be warned, they do not take credit cards and they do not have A/C. Since it was hot outside, I decided to try... More

On our last night in Tulum we decided to dine here for dinner. It's off the main street so gets less foot traffic so we decided to eat outside. We ordered the usual cocktails and then dinner. We always try to eat as local as we can and we ordered what we thought were traditional Mexican dishes. The serves were... More

We were looking for a restaurant serving both Mexican and Fish dishes, this came recommended. The shrimp in garlic butter was fantastic, as was the octopus. The service was polite and friendly. Prices were very reasonable, would recommend. Don't expect English food or menu although the staff we had spoke good English

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of our condo manager when we asked for Mexican cuisine. Food quality and presentation very good, the grilled octopus I had was the best of the 4 meals we sampled during our stay. Overall, ambiance is good, on a smaller side street from the main stretch, so quieter. The wait staff was very... More
