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!

Good, fresh food. Wonderful service! The place is right on the beach and allows you to sit inside or out.

We ate here for both lunch and dinner during our stay at Casa Dorada. The views were absolutely perfect, and service by both Cesar and Antonio was great! The food was fantastic and at a very reasonable price. Highly recommend!

The restaurant looks nice. Service is slow and the food is really not particularly good, particularly when other nearby restaurants are much better for the money

For an in-formal in resort top restaurant we found this good enough to go there twice during our stay. Themed nights but always open menu as well with lots of local, specialty dishes. Very reasonably priced as well for being right at resort. Enjoyed both dinners but suggest trying some of local gourmet plates. Would go back there even if... More

We ate at 12 Tribes two times and thoroughly enjoyed the food each time. The wait staff, especially Cruz Antonio, was very attentive and friendly. The view of the water and rock formations is outstanding!
