“How it should be...!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2013

We drove by car to this place to have a quick drink. Five hours later we went home walking. We had the best time. Very, very kind owners with a rose for the ladies. The swings are great and the food was very good. After two weeks of Mexico, this was the first tequilla we had and we had a blast. Must go when you're in Tulum!!

“The Bartender Albert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013

I love a place that has a bartender that is attentive to his patrons. Albert got the job done. Aside from his excellent service, he is also very capable behind a camera. He keeps his margaritas simple and his pours heavy. The other added benefit, aside from feeling welcome and taken care of is that the kitchen can put out some food. The ceviche was very tasty and the green and red sauces served with chips were fantastic. We had a couple shared dishes for breakfast and dinner here, nothing disappointed.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013 via mobile

We only happened to this place because they were advertising they show sports on big screen and we wanted to watch football. Didn't expect anything of the food - and what a pleasant surprise we got! Food was great here, service was super friendly - even though the guy who took care of us spoke no English, we got along just fine. Prices were also unbelievably low, especially for the food that you get. All in all this was one of the best places we ate at during our stay in Tulum.

“Amazing ceviche!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

This place is a gem, on a quiet cool street off the main road in Tulum city. The owner Antonio (?) is very conscious of everybody and a perfect restaurant host. The bartenders make delicious drinks and the food is really amazing. Please try their ceviche!
