“What a GREAT dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Who would have thought you would find a place like this a block off the main street in downtown Tulum?
The menu has selections to please everyone. Filet, veal, pasta and sandwiches were ordered and NOTHING was left on the plates.Crepes were the choice for dessert and they were awesome! Try to get a table closer to the kitchen as the aroumas are wonderful.
Very friendly atmosphere, great attentive service and excellent food. Highly recommend!

Tried snails for the first time they were great! A little hard to find and not much parking but the breakfast baguettes are good!

“Excellent and very affordable French restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

family enjoyed very much eating there oan a couple of occasion . Food is very good, truly French ( we are French so we can vouch for it ) , with a mix of very simple classics along with more elaborate dishes. Desserts are particularly great. Prices were actually in line or lower than many other restaurants in Tulum which was a nice surprise. Laurent, the owner is super friendly , taking the time to chat with his customers, offer advices on things to do and places to go. Nice patio in the back. Decor is laid back. Definitely recommend if you are in Tulum.
