We've eaten here often over the years. It is always good and fun to watch the people walking by. Their lemonade is especially delicious as is their enchiladas verde. Grilled items like garlic shrimp or arrachera are also tasty

We loved this place for breakfast better than all other restaurants. Great people watching- drive behind the restaurant to see more local views. Easy parking and right near the marketplace for easy shopping. Suggest having breakfast then strolling down both sides of the street to grab gifts or local shopping. Delicious coffee and chilaquiles!

Food was good, service was good, bathrooms very clean. The sauce that is brought to the table was different from anything I've ever seen or tasted. I couldn't get enough of the garlic, potatoes, peppers, and carrots and cinnamon. My husband said I shouldn't worry about any vampires because of all the garlic I ate. Caramel frappuchino was good too!

Really good Mexican food! We stumbled upon this place after our Tulum tour. Warning the salsa is spicy, but that is how I like it. I couldn't get enough of it! We also really enjoyed the guacamole, black beans, and melted cheese. The black beans are vegetarian and they make the nachos with them! Would highly recommend trying this place... More

Great guacamole. The free escabeche is awesome. Prices slightly higher since it's the main drag, but well worth it. I can't wait to go for breakfast.

They seem to have lots of live music at different times of day. A good place to people watch. Love their pot of veggies that they bring to the table, included in the price, featuring carrots, half a garlic bulb and some silly-hot chillies. Yeowww. Good service and large portions. Had fruit, yoghourt and granola and it was an enormous... More

A year ago, I titled my review of this restaurant, "Complimentary pickled vegetables worth it in themselves.” And that's still true. But the food is also good, if not great, and the prices very reasonable--much more so than in the hotel zone. And there was a musical trio (keyboards, bass, and congas, and voices) who were very enjoyable. The staff... More

We had lunch here after walking through the ruins nearby. The service was excellent and the food was very good - Filete Veracruz and Chili Relleno. Cheap too. I'd definitely go back.
