Stopped in here on the recommendation of a staff member from our resort who lives in Tulum pueblo. It was quiet as it was a weekday just before noon. The meal was tasty and economical.

During our 6 day stay in Tulum on the beach we found this little spot on the strip just from driving. We had a rental car so and was about 10min from our resort.

Had great food at decent prices. 2 for 1 drinks are always a good deal. Servers are attentive, music sucked a lil but whatever. Should try it out. Tacos were great! We had chicken, marinated pork, and fish

Check your bill because it will almost certainly be padded. I went in for happy hour, it was 2 for 1 drinks. I was charged for 2 drinks. When I told the guy he said "you should have told me that in the beginning." as if I was responsible for telling him when happy hour was in the establishment he... More

We had an OK meal here, nothing extraordinary but it wasn't too bad either. It is good value for money but not spectacular. The portions were quite substantial. The drinks are good value and being on the high street it is good for people watching. Not a bad restaurant but you can do better.
