The love of family, friends and great food is a tradition for the Egoavils.Having relocated to the United States from Peru in 1992, they sought the opportunities their new home offered. They have now realized their family dream of owning and operating their own restaurant. El Tule was previously the home of another restaurant offering Mexican fare. The Egoavil Family has infused the eatery with a vibe all its own. El-Tule’s Mexican-Latin fusion includes traditional Mexican offerings as well as the addition of Peruvian menu items. Peruvian food has been gaining momentum among foodies across the nation, and prior to El Tule was extremely hard to find in the Delaware Valley. El Tule offers both indoor and outdoor dining. Guests may bring their own wine or alcohol of choice. Our patio is dog friendly.Subpages

Stopped on a busy Saturday night without a reservation and they were able to fit is in. Food was a little slow to come out of the kitchen, but was well worth the wait. I had the snapper and crab special and my husband the skirt steak special. Both were delicious. Will definitely be returning.

We eaten here numerous times and it has always been fantastic! Menu, service, food - just simply outstanding. From the moment you're greeted at the door to the sincerely smiling good-byes as you leave, the staff here looks after every detail with a friendly ease that is rare. The food? Everything on the expansive menu is freshly prepared and comes... More

Our lunch started with Jack uncorking our delicious wine and Evan giving excellent service. With so many options to choose from on the menu, we asked Evan for some recommendations.

Our first experience with Peruvian cuisine. Everything was fresh and really good. Loved the guacamole and the ceviche got raves from my husband.

While the area is blessed with diversity, this has rarely translated into upscale dining options. This (and its sister restaurant in Doylestown) are exceptions. While it looks like a Hole in the wall Mexican joint from the outside, it is anything but! I am a fairly well traveled foodie and the ceviche here ranks among the best I've ever tasted.... More

When it comes to food in Lambertville, El Tule is undoubtedly the best. I have never been a fan of Latin cuisine, but Peruvian is unbelievable. Every dish I have ever had is full of flavors that I have never tasted in any other food. This is one of my favorite places to go. The atmosphere is very cozy and... More

This restaurant was excellent. It is a family run place, the server was the daughter of the owners. She was so knowledgeable and helpful in choosing our meals. Ceviche trilogy is absolutely amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and cannot wait to go back!

Everything was wonderful. 4 of us had dinner together so we were able to try many items. The ceviche appetizer, snapper and steak were my favorites. We sat outside this past Saturday. We had reservations and the entire experience was great! A definite must and street parking was easy to find.
