“Fabulous friendly eaterie on the main road in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Totally wonderful.. We ate lunch and loved it so much we went back for breakfast the next day. Service is a little slow but you realise why when your plate arrives. Wonderful food garnished cleverly. My scrambled eggs came with three large pieces of fruit as well as toast and bacon. Three meals for the price of one. There are some rooms and a small pool for calling off. If you have a rental car it might be a nice place to stay but otherwise far from the good beaches. Wifi available. Only take cash. Cannot fault the hospitality and the chic but understated design.

“cool place , really tasty proper food , strong cocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

for our meal we went to a place on the super san francisco junction , its called 'teetotum' . its got a small pool , a rooftop terrace , and a small attached hotel . got to say even tho we where the only ones there the food and drinks where awesome ! by far the strongest cocktails we had while here , mind blowingly strong margaritas ! and the food was really well cooked too .

they didnt have a few things or drinks on the menu , but wished we had eaten and visited here earlier in our holiday we would definitely go back here . and prices where decent too . i had chicken , mrs had veggie salad - we had eaten most before we photo'd and didnt stop for a breath . worth trying , its just by all the car hire places like america and payless and avis . check it out - they have a great girls toilet with rock star pics n quotes , a dinky pool and a cut up beach bug vw

“Delicious breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I am so happy we happened to have breakfast at Teetotum as we saw it walking by, what a nice place. The food was amazing and the service very good too. The french toast was simply awesome! The dishes are abundant and not expensive.
The restaurant is part of the hotel, which is a small but very nice one, everything here has a friendly feel to it.
I wish I had come back for dinner or breakfast again, sadly it is located kind of far of where we were staying so we couldn´t, but when ever I´m back in Tulum, I´ll certainly eat here again!

“great food and friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

great coffee to start the day (or cappuccino), plates of wonderfully fresh fruit, the best french toast...then a great big cheeseburger with fries-the best! we also tried the guacamole, the black angus rib eye and a shrimp special with chilies and tasty fish tacos. everything we tried over the weekend was delicious! can't wait to return and eat there again and again!

“The Best of Both Worlds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

There really is the best of both worlds to be found here. This is the place to go if you want a hearty (huevos rancheros!) or healthy (fresh fruit and yoghurt! yay!) breakfast. Trust me your stomach will thank me later. It is also the place to go for dinner and drinks in the evening. (Happy hour for the win!) Your liver may curse my name.

The prices were totally reasonable, the food scrumptious and the staff down to earth and chatty. I was able to shoot the breeze with locals, expats, fellow vacationers and the staff. I also found some quiet time basking in the sun on the roof deck with a cold bottle of cerveza. All in all, this joint has the right kind of ambiance, very cool but not too cool for school.

This is also the place to go after you’ve either gorged yourself on roadside tacos or paid an arm and a leg for a run of the mill burger on the beach (I endured both). The value to be found here is tops. Everything I ordered off the menu hit the spot and didn’t dent my wallet.

Lastly I must thank Teetotum for introducing me to the likes of chilaquiles, which is my new hangover remedy of choice. I can’t believe I lived so long without having tasted so incredible a dish. Thanks for everything Teetotum!

hello traveler,
thank you for your positive review of our restaurant and thanks for pointing out our happy hour. our barmen like that period best as they get to really shine, putting their finesse into countless mojitos, margaritas and micheladas! and thank you for the shout out for our chilaquiles which with the green salsa and extra habanero salsa really help out when feeling crudo.
come visit again amigo.
we love you!
