Excellent fajita and Peruvian Stew. We had the appetizer sampler also. Everything was great. Well spiced but not hot. We sat outside on a cool day with our dog. They had heaters running between the tables.

El tule is a must visit in the Lambertville/New Hope area. Delicious, fresh Peruvian/Mexican food with amazing flavors. You won't find Tex-Mex here.. Great for a date night and a perfect BYOB. Try any of the ceviches--- they are to die for, filled with fresh ingredients (order it SPICY!) You can't go wrong here! Try not to eat Just remember... More

Casual atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating but the food is spectacular!. Amazing Ceviche....many choices for fresh fish served with Tacu Tacu. (look it up!). Friendly knowledgeable servers will help guide you through the menu. Off the main drag of Lambertville which makes parking "slightly" easier.

The positive reviews were right on - great lunch in a pleasant courtyard - loved the 'torta Cubana' and the 'Mexican lasagna' - realistic prices, reasonable portions, and efficient and most pleasant staff - looking forward to a return visit, for sure

I'm definitely going back to this restaurant! Terrific ambiance for both inside and terrace dining and we had a good server. Best of all, all 7 of the people in our party liked their food! It was fresh, had great depth/layers of flavor, was authentic...just terrific! Yes, it was the best guacamole I've EVER had...but it was also so much... More

Start with the guacamole. Terrific. We went for a family dinner. Even our two year old grandson enjoyed the cooking. From lamb stew, shrimp fajitas, seafood chili relanos, to tacos, we were all part of the clean plate club. Next time I'm saving room for dessert. I know it will be a treat.

OK--I have been reviewing many restaurants in Lambertville since buying our home there in August, and this one was truly a five star for our visit Friday night. They honored our request to sit outside (funny, but when you call some of the restaurants and make reservations for outside, when you get there, they say they only have inside...) The... More

If you want high quality, fresh ingredients, great presentation, superb service of a quaint Mexican/Peruvian restaurant do not look anywhere else. Stopped here on a whim of an internet search and glad we did. There is indoor/outdoor seating. We sat outside in a very pleasant courtyard. Prices are more mid-range and the portions are very satisfying. Overall excellent experience, and... More

The love of family, friends and great food is a tradition for the Egoavils.Having relocated to the United States from Peru in 1992, they sought the opportunities their new home offered. They have now realized their family dream of owning and operating their own restaurant. El Tule was previously the home of another restaurant offering Mexican fare. The Egoavil Family has infused the eatery with a vibe all its own. El-Tule’s Mexican-Latin fusion includes traditional Mexican offerings as well as the addition of Peruvian menu items. Peruvian food has been gaining momentum among foodies across the nation, and prior to El Tule was extremely hard to find in the Delaware Valley. El Tule offers both indoor and outdoor dining. Guests may bring their own wine or alcohol of choice. Our patio is dog friendly.Subpages
