Description: 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

“Delicious !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

My husband and I visited El Tule for an early dinner when going for a walk through lambertville, after looking on trip advisor and saw it was rated #1, we figured we'd give it a shot. Being that it was only 4:00 on a weekday we were the only ones in there but we were so pleasantly surprised! The food was amazing. Started out with ceviche which was a special that day and it was delicious, very fresh. Our server was attentive and friendly and we loved the atmosphere. Will definitely go back and BYOB.

“Don't judge this book by it's cover-it's the food that counts.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is one of those places you might overlook in Lambertville since it's not on the main drag and it's a little bit unassuming on the outside. However, this is a favorite of many of us locals due to the very fresh and delicious (and healthy) food, as well as the extremely welcoming owners and staff. They offer two cuisine choices, Mexican and Peruvian. Both are delicious -and I usually avoid Mexican at all costs, but I love theirs. Their ceviche is to die…and they have very good fish dishes as well.
They have a nice outdoor area with heaters, which we prefer to the inside area. They have also just opened a restaurant in Doylestown PA called Quinoa which I can't wait to try.

“Nutritious and delicious! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Indoor and outdoor seating are available during the summer months.

Last August, we visited this restaurant three times - once for lunch and twice for dinner.

Each meal was excellent.
The food was fresh, nutritious and delicious.
The service was attentive.

The overall experience was compelling enough to bring us back for more of the great food that is outstanding both in flavor and texture.

A step above the average Mexican restaurants. Everything was very good and had a great fresh flavor. The salsa Verdi was delicious. Great find in Lambertville.

This restaurant is all about the food! Everything we had was prepared perfectly. The people are proud of their product and it shows. The portions were generous and the flavored were freshly created with lots of herbs and spices.
