“A must , when in Tulum”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Our extended family discover the Bistro in Tulum and we were so please we ate there 5 times in 3 days. The owners are great people and found a niche in this very poular tourist destination. The food is not only excellent but the prices are moderate and the outside patio make the whole experience a must go . They also have a croissant and breakfast place call " La Fournée " close to
the water with excellent expresso. Philippe

Real French food in the center of Tulum, excellent drinks and wines, fantastic dishes and sandwiches, and impeccable service, all reasonably priced for the quality!
Highly recommended.

We love this beach club. Excellent food, beautiful beach, nice shady spots with lounges, and killer fish tacos.

“Simple but genually French.”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Quick stop in Tulum for a late lunch, located on a side street .Well worth the detour if you have simple French food craving.
Typical French Bistro menu with plenty of choices plus "plat du jour" at very reasonable price.
Good service even in absence of the French owner.
Great croissant, crepes are not buck weed but still tasty.
Open bar and back yard terrace for quiet times nice , but need a little clean up.

“Excellent omelettes at the Bistro!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Le Bistro specializes in French-style food and for breakfast, they feature a long list of omelettes, which come with coffee, juice and slices of fresh-baked French bread at half the price you'd pay at Tulum beach restaurants. I forget the particular omelette I ordered that morning, but I do remember it was great! Service was rapid and friendly. They even offered to refill my cup, which is rather rare in Mexico. There's both indoor and outdoor seating. They also serve lunch and dinner, both offering typical French specialties.
