Four of us ate here on Tuesday night. It's an inauspicious location, a dark street one block back from the main road, but the reputation of this place obviously brings the punters in. Modern decor, relaxed atmosphere. Pricey but good. Ceviche starter was outstanding-with a Mexican spicy twist on the traditional dish. Mains were good too (three of us had fish, the other a salad). Glad we made the effort.

Our friend saw a review for this restaurant and we decided to try . First it was hard to find, we ended up asking some cabbies on the main drag and they pointed us in the right direction. When we arrived we were the only ones there. This had us a bit concerned... We were waited on by a very nice young man and we asked him some questions and he steered our choices in the right directioN. I had my mama's salsa steak ( I think that is what they called it). I was not disappointed! By the time our order came the place was packed.
We were also entertained by the chef's wife and a guitarist with American cover songs. It was a really nice night and I was so glad we decided to try this out of the way family owned restaurant !

The decor is modern and a bit stark, but go for the food, which is delicious. I especially recommend the spinach salad, but everything we had was good. The basic ingredients are traditional, but the preparation is not. The chef is creative and all the staff friendly. I am recommending this place to others.

We found this restaurant while wondering the side streets of downtown Tulum. The Staff was very friendly, the decor charming and the food was delicious. The service from the waiter and the Chef was amazing!

Nice, friendly staff at this small, out of the way restaurant in town. We had a little trouble finding it, but we were glad we did. They have a small menu, but the food was very good and the drinks were too. They have some out of the ordinary options and they were tasty with healthy options.
