During our recent stay in Tulum we ate there twice. Whatever we tried was delicious, the red chicken, pork in green mole, stuffed green peppers as starter.. .. up and down the menu. Start with a ginger Mojito when you go there. It is a very relaxed place, romantic when you dine under the stars.. Loved it.

the pear and granola starter was way too sweet and dry, much better for breakfast than a started, but the albondigas were melt in the mouth. Beware, the restaurant runs on a generator and the power cut halfway through, but it was no hardship to finish our meal by candlelight.

We had dinner once last December. The longest service ever and not so nice.
I did not like the ceviche here, too much alcohol in it.
Would not go back.

35 of us ate family style at a Welcome Dinner we had for our wedding guests and it was delicious! Beef, shrimp, soup, vegetables and so much more. The wait staff and bar staff were great.

Even though we were in Tulum almost a year ago, I still salivate when remembering this meal!

The Pear, Brie and Granola alone were brilliant!
The cook even made some grilled vegetables at my daughter's request, which was not on the menu.

The staff took care of us and kindly brought us mosquito ointment (outdoor seating, at dusk..)

If we ever return to Tulum, this will be our 1st meal there!
