“Best margarita. Hands down,”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

I've had many margaritas in tulum And they make the best one. I need that recipe. We would take a cab from the beach simply to have a sip of their famous cocktail! My boyfriend and I would sit on the swings at the bar. Great place to start the evening or to end it. Chill place and great service!
We had lunch once, the tacos were good.

“Great food, bar, and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We had the very good, fresh, and large portion ceviche, very good tacos, the pina coladas... Mario was our waiter, he served the food and drinks with a smile, and even taught us how to make roses from napkins. Then we moved to the bar and had more drinks and met cool people. It was a great evening. Thank guys!

“Great breakfast and good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Had a fantastic ( and cheap) breakfast here with my fiancé. I had the chilangos and she had the maya breakfast. Both were tasty and big portions.
Great price and so much better value than the places along the beach. Looks like they have a cool swing bar too. The staff were friendly, I'd recommend this place for sure

“Excellent service/ceviche”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Really friendly service; they were very tolerant of my lack of Spanish. I had the guacamole and then the ceviche and both were excellent.

“Best service and food of 3 weeks in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2013

We found this place by accident for lunch during a rainstorm.....happy accident!
Went back for dinner...filet de pescado es muy excellente y camarones diablo esta tambien!
But even better our waiter Armando made us feel so welcome and cared for-as though we were dining in his home. We have seen a lot of great service in our 4 weeks here but he takes the cake! He even made a lovely origami rose from a napkin and then comp'd us tequila shots!
A troup of boys came by collecting money for the church- reciting the Christmas story in unison.
Charmed to death.....our favorite spot in Tulum pueblo
