Breakfast has all the basics done well: loads of fresh fruit, good "made-to-order" omelette and antojitos (appetizer?) bar. The huitlacoche and rajas are unusual additions to an omelette that I enjoyed. We found the buffet to be a bargain, but the waffles are worth ordering a la carte. One thing I found strange but I really enjoyed: they had random... More

We are owners and each year this seems to get better. The food is fabulous and the chefs seem to keep adding more and a variety of items each year.

Lots of choices for the breakfast buffet, though only about 20% of the offerings changed each day. Lunches were delicious!

We ate breakfast at 12 Tribes every morning during our stay. There was something for everyone and service was always with a smile.

While staying at Casa Dorada we had access to the 12 Tribes which has an awesome breakfast buffet and the menu items are very good as well. Waiters are very attentive and take care of everything you need. We all had the buffet one morning and egg sandwiched the next time there. Coffee is very good but you cant beat... More

We had a great time eating right at Casa Dorad were we were staying. The 12 Tribes restaurant is right next to the water but up a level. We were seated next to the railing which gave us a fabulous view of the water and all the ships/boats that were out at night. The service was not only great but... More

We stayed at Casa Dorado so this restaurant was on our resort. The breakfast buffet is incredible. The evening meal was also very good but a bit spendy. Would definitely visit here again.

Welcome to 12 TribesCarlos Bonilla Souberbielle, our Executive Chef, would like to welcome you.The creative process applied to our menu will take you through a smorgasbord of flavors, textures and aromas that represent twelve different regions of Mexico; hence, our name. By understanding the local culinary culture of these regions, their ingredients and techniques, our chef creates a different perspective into what we call “Contemporary Mexican Cuisine”. By applying this understanding to his idea of Bohemian Cuisine – an unpretentious composition of different taste profiles – you’ll find a variety of different flavors perfectly balanced in each dish as you move from course to course. Simple appetizers will introduce you to the complexity of our main dishes,where ubiquitous hints of Mexico offer a new perspective on Mexican cooking. Of course, for a perfect ending, our decadent desserts are the perfect way to complement and truly enjoy your 12 Tribes experience.Thank you for joining us on this journey and….Buen provecho!
