I visited El Tule May 10, 2016 with my daughter and a friend. My daughter and I are vegans and our friend has a LOT of serious food allergies. Needless to say, the three of us don't usually find a place where we can eat out. We had been wandering around New Hope for a few hours and were starving,... More

We live in New hope, we visited for the first time last week. We parked and followed our noses to the source of the delicious smell. At first glance , it appears as a pizza style place. Ignore the ambiance and go with your smell and taste senses. The food is fresh and authentic. Great Find

We have visited El Tule numerous times and have always had an incredible meal. The freshness, presentation and flavors of the food is a true testament of outstanding and authentic Peruvian cuisine. Service is excellent also. Fausto and his daughter Silvia make you feel as if you are part of the family. Can't wait to return.

We enjoyed our visit to El Tule and had fun selecting our dinner choices from the many options offered. The colorful flash fried ceviche was delicious and one dish was enough for two to share. The Red Snapper and Crab Meat Tacu Tacu was also very good with just a hint of spiciness to enhance the flavor of the dish.... More

Charming BYOB offering both Mexican and Peruvian entrees. The owner happened to be there and recommended different dishes for us to try. Of course we had ceviche and it was delicious.

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

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

Description
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
