I love Tulum, but as far as the food scene is concerned, it could be better. Therefore it is nice to have something different in town. My Boeuf Bourgignon proved to be a good choice, also the Crêpe Suzette for desert. And if you are not into wine, they also serve Belgian beer! As far as I am concerned, I... More

Le Bistro, is still delicious after all these years. Five years ago we stayed in an apartment for a month just two blocks away and enjoyed several meals here. It hasn't changed all that much; good food, good service and good prices. The Resturants in the area seemed to have grown up in it's shadow. If you're looking to experience... More

I happened upon this place as it was a sweltering hot day and I saw giant fans to keep the guests cool. The waitress was wonderful and the food was superb. I do not really even like french food, but this was still delicious. A broad selection in the menu, but reasonable prices and excellent quality make me proud to... More

I had the steak here and it was outstanding, it was also very reasonably priced. The waiter told me about some extras they add to beer, spices and salt and I had that and it was very good. I wish I would have learned of that sooner. One of the best meals we had in Tulum.

Had 2 wonderful breakfasts there. Everyone in my parties really enjoyed it and it is a quaint place on a cute street. Soft boiled eggs, great bacon, coffee, .... I could go on. Nice service, great food, pleasant little courtyard.

A French restaurant in town near the second stop light when driving in from Cancun. It is run by a French national and has both porch seating adjacent to the street and a garden for dining. We went there for lunch and the cappuccino and mojito were excellent. The french toast was very good though it was made using what... More

Le Bistro is a simple looking place, not much different from its neighbours but the food is exquisite and the coffee is better than most. We had a simple lunch of savoury crepes which were well filled and coffee but continued onto sweet crepes and cakes. We wanted to return for dinner but fell short of time, we did manage... More

We took breakfast here and it was really nice. The Capuccino was delicious! I ordered a gratined sandwich and it was very good it was just that the menu said it was a crossaint! Good flavor, maybe the portions have to be a little bigger. The staff not super nice, they just do their job but nothing more.
