Gave it a try after reading about it on here. So glad we did. Truly the best meal I've eaten in a really long time. We stuck with the Peruvian menu and glad we did. We ordered the ceviche trilogy and it was phenomenal. I have never eaten ceviche. I don't really even like fish and this was delicious. I... More

Dinner for 3, late in the evening. we sat inside. The menu is eclectic and we needed some translation. The waiter spoke quickly in non-native English but slowed down when asked. Service was prompt and attentive. The atmosphere was noisy, next time we'll sit outside. Everything we ordered was incredibly delicious and fresh. Not your typical Mexican restaurant. We will...

We sat outside. It was a beautiful evening. Right after we ordered chips and salsa were brought to our table. This is always an indicator of what is to come. The chips were crispy and not oily and the salsas were fresh. For our main courses we ordered the picante de mariscos tacuctacu. This is a medley of shrimp, mussels,... More

Some peeps love this place. For me, mediocre at best. And the second location in Doylestown is even more so. Sorry!

We took one of our best friends here for a birthday dinner and she still raves about it! All the dishes are excellent but the cerviche is simply amazing. The staff is friendly and knowledgable - answered all questions about Peruvian dishes. We look forward to another birthday dinner soon!

Excellent selection of unique authentic Peruvian food. Great service, just loud in dining room so it makes it difficult to have a conversation. But don't let that stop you from going.

There is not a lot of space, and don't always take reservations. There is seating outside in good weather. Food was absolutely delightful, service a little slow, but worth the wait!

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
