Not really acquainted with Peruvian food. Got the dinner pork plate for lunch and shared it . It was GREAT ... enough for two .. .and allowed room to share the Tres Leche cake. Am a fan of this ... prefer the vanilla ....and this was to die for. All home made ... and the right "moisture". Bring some home.... More

I went to El Tule on Sat., November 19, 2016 with friends. All three of us were so satisfied. This was one of the best Mexican restaurants we ever ate at. I also tried the civiche from the Peruvian menu which was amazing. So good! I must also mention that the service was great. They were so busy that night,... More

We visited El Tule with friends and my daughter who is a very picky eater. It was an unusually warm November afternoon so we enjoyed sitting in the patio. The waiters were friendly and took their time answering our questions. I'm vegetarian, to my pleasant surprise they had many vegetarian options. We choose Nachos, tacos de ceviche, empanadas de pollo... More

Free Ceviche with Yelp check in!!! And its super savory! Small cozy restaurant with authentic Peruvian and Mexican food. The Red Snapper and Crab Meat Tacu Tacu and Peruvian Sampler were great. The red snapper was melting in the mouth! The three types of complementary salsas' that came with the nachos were so good that you would be asking for... More

Although we live over an hour away from Lambertville, we find excuses to visit our new favorite restaurant. Be it biking along the canals or exploring Bucks County, we always include a lunch stop at El Tule. During our last visit the manager/owner Sylvia spent a lot of time with us describing the history of Peru as well as the... More

Moving to PA from Southern California left me yearning for good Mexican food (and In n Out) for a long time. But El Tule solved the Mexican food problem. Best I've ever had. Make sure to get the Queso Fundido with Chorizo. The Crab/Spinach Enchilada is killer too. The Ceviche is also awesome.

You can taste the prep work and freshness in every bite. Elaborate and deep flavors. Very nice outside garden, with service to match.

I went here on a Thursday night with 3 friends for a casual dinner. This is a Mexican as well as Peruvian restaurant. Don't be fooled by the outside. It is small but clean and neat inside. The place does have some outside seating for nice weather. But, even though it was small, we got seated inside immediately. We felt... More

Even though the facade of this restaurant might make you question going in, the place was very busy, Sampled items from both sides of the menu and we were very pleased. Our favorite was the trio of ceviche served as an appetizer. Fresh and unique flavors in each.

This was not my first time at El Tule and I will be back again! Their ceviche trio is outstanding and not to be missed. We also had tasty guacamole and I had the fish tacos and my husband had the enchiladas. While it was way too much food for the two of us, we did our best to finish... 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
