Nice atmosphere, good food

The grilled meats are very good, we had steaks and chicken with French fries that were above average. Chimichurri sauce was excellent. Nice place to enjoy watching people go by in the animated street. Service was friendly.4

We have been here on two different occasions now. The steaks are incredible and the pasta is some of the best I have ever had. The service is great and the wine is so good. We love just sitting amd watchimg the town drive by and soaking up our enviroment.

A dinner at chimichurri in tiny Puerto Morelos finally proved to me that a great steak can be had in Mexico. My previous steak experiences, a ribeye is my favorite, had been disappointing in my many trips to the Playa delCarmen and Tulum area. One would ask, why order a steak when you're so close to the ocean? My answer... More

No contest, this is the best steak I have eaten since arriving in the region 14 months ago, best value and very friendly service, with good advice on how to best enjoy the cut of your choice. Will definitely go here again, and will bring lots of friends.

Good food (and lots of it) at a reasonable price. The steaks look like small roasts! I'm a bit of a fries snob; if I'm at anything other than a fast food joint I get annoyed when I'm served fries "out of the bag". Not so at Al Chimicurri; they serve nice hand-cut fries that are hot & crispy. I... More

Went there for supper tonight with 4 adults and 2 children. The empanadas were really delicious especially the carne, spinach and margarita ones. The meal went downhill from there except for the plain cheese and tomato sauce pizza which the children thoroughly enjoyed. It is served on a wooden board, cut into squares. It looks like a flatbread pizza but... More

There is good service, better than average food and a good spot go watch people passing by. This is popular spot, with Uruguayan highligts and grilled meats from an open fire. A bit of a break from standard local fare.

Delicious steak. All kinds of cuts. Typical Argentinian cuisine. By far my favorite place in town. Empanadas are a must. Salads and grilled veggies are delightful for vegetarians.

Excellent food. great service. A variety of musicians play and their music is easy to listen to and not over powering. Only annoyance is the beggars who are allowed in and go from table to table asking for $.

In the chilly (by comparison) winter months, secure a table inside by making a reservation ahead of time. Otherwise there is plenty of outside seating. Pizza is great, as are the empenadas.
