Halach Coffee was amazing. Pair it with the chocolate cake. Pickled chillies and carrots were also good.

Authentic fresh Mexican food in a quaint setting on the main Tulum strip bubbling with good vibes. Great prices for something right on main strip. Quality and portions that make you feel guilty for how little you pay

We make this an annual stop when passing through Tulum. Always excellent and consistent. Reasonably priced and don’t pass on the escabeche! It’s wonderful!

Right on the main avenue and easy to get to, this restaurant served an excellent meal that was fresh and delicious. There are a lot of things to chose from for eating so a second visit (or third) is in order.

Located right on the strip on Hwy 307, this is a great place for authentic food with a singer who is there nightly. The prices are great and the Pico de Gallo is the best! We found this place by accident 2 years ago and...More
