We had a nice lunch here. Shrimp fajitas and stuffed avocado. They were like tuna salad only with salad shrimp. The food was fresh but the mayonnaise didn't set well on my stomach after a long day in the hot sun.

Great food. Excellent service. Charming atmosphere. Terrific guacamole and ceviche. Mariachis in the evening. Had both lunch and dinner there and both were excellent.

Very reasonably priced. Food is good. We had fish tacos, grilled grouper. Excellent guacamole. Close to Akumal beach and lots of little stores. Mojitos and margaritas were great.

My husband and I shared the grilled seafood platter, and it was truly delicious - among the best meals we had on the trip.

We ate here twice mostly for the delicious brochettes. They didn't have the lobster when we were there but we did enjoy the chicken and the shrimp & steak. We also enjoyed the dessert of coconut ice cream. Get a pitcher of margaritias. Very inexpensive and there were a lot of locals so that tells you something

We have eaten here a couple times. Always have the lobster. It is good, but very small and we always go away hungry. I'd go to La Buena Vida instead.

Mediocre food and service plus mosquitoes based on dinner for 6 on December 27. Inferior to a half dozen other dinners we had in the Tulum
