We were traveling 15 minutes by car every morning to have a breakfast at this restaurant. We could not start the day without having to stop by this restaurant. The food, the coffe, the Staff, the ambiance, just what you need to have a great day.

Just off the main road tucked down a side street is this little gem - really not what we expected to find! Fantastic food with a varied menu, great service, and very reasonably priced to boot. It's definitely on my revisit list - highly recommended.

We had the Moules Marines and the Tournedos, which was both awesome. The meat was perfectly cooked to my liking, medium rare. Sorry to say, many seem to skip this place because its a little more pricey and dont have cheap alcohol like many other places.

We waited 35 minutes for two crepes, which were nothing more then OK. Restaurant was half empty, so the kitchen wasn't super busy. One positive thing was our waiter, who very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, I would not return here.

Although you can sit on the street Bistro style....the back patio was our favourite. Very quite and beautifully done it really added to the ambiance. The food was so uniquely done it really surprised us. I had the chicken in mushrooms sauce with a garlic/cheese crusting and my wife had their crepes...these are exactly what you would expect from a... More

Small place that does things right. Having had the breakfast here several times and always been very happy with it. The other parts of the menu I have only tried tapas dishes, appetizers and small dishes to share and they have all been good. Service is friendly and nice.

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
