Welcome to 12 TribesCarlos Bonilla Souberbielle, our Executive Chef, would like to welcome you.The creative process applied to our menu will take you through a smorgasbord of flavors, textures and aromas that represent twelve different regions of Mexico; hence, our name. By understanding the local culinary culture of these regions, their ingredients and techniques, our chef creates a different perspective into what we call “Contemporary Mexican Cuisine”. By applying this understanding to his idea of Bohemian Cuisine – an unpretentious composition of different taste profiles – you’ll find a variety of different flavors perfectly balanced in each dish as you move from course to course. Simple appetizers will introduce you to the complexity of our main dishes,where ubiquitous hints of Mexico offer a new perspective on Mexican cooking. Of course, for a perfect ending, our decadent desserts are the perfect way to complement and truly enjoy your 12 Tribes experience.Thank you for joining us on this journey and….Buen provecho!

Best authentic Mexican food...

My daughter's wedding party rehearsal dinner was at the Casa Dorada hotel in their Tribes restaurant. It was outside on their patio in the evening. We could see the city lights off in the distance, gas lights for heat and comfort, and a Mariachi band was playing music. The food was served buffet... read more

Dinner was okay but nothing out of this world which you would expect for the price for 2. Go to Edith's or Alexander's for better food and better pricing.

This restaurant is located in the hotel-Casa Dorado and overlooks the bay. Not crowded, a quiet atmosphere with absolutely delicious food. We dined there twice. The grilled lobster was perfectly prepared and the tastiest lobster I had on this trip. Also delicious were the Chicken Mole and Shrimp Festival. The staff was very attentive and professional. Definitely on our list... More

Seven in our party and 7 waiters brought out our food. So we each got served at exactly the same time😃 The heaters sure felt great as the evenings are cool this time of year.

The food, the view, the atmosphere and the staff. 10/10 we went there 3 times for dinner and lunch and were never disappointed, I reckon the duck! And a Miami vice cocktail! But be aware this is not a cheap restaurant prices for mains are between $30-$60 USD but it's worth it if you can afford it.

There was a band the night we were there (Wednesday) and it was great. This is the Casa Dorada restaurant. All outdoors near the beach. The setting was so delightful, we really hardly remember the food. Of course, would have remembered if the food hadn't been good.
