We decided to visit La Coqueta after reading the amazing reviews and it exceeded our expectations. It was a truly wonderful experience and easily one of our favorite restaurants in Tulum. Margaritas were the best we have had - only $60 pesos for a HUGE frozen, delicious drink (we had several and the glasses they are served in are super cool as well). Guacamole was phenomenal. I had the fajitas con pollo - WOW - delicious and way more than I could eat. My fiancé had the octopus special (ask Erica, it was her favorite) - he LOVED it....very unique and certainly worth going off the beaten path. Finally, the dessert. We were stuffed but Erica offered us some traditional Mexican postres on the house - pie de limon - oh my goodness were we ever glad we agreed to try it. One of the best desserts we have had. EVER. All this at beyond reasonable prices. Not only was the food amazing but Erica was one of the friendliest and most attentive servers/owners we have met ANYWHERE. She was truly wonderful and we hope that everyone who visits Tulum also decides to visit this gem of a restaurant. While slightly out of the way, it is more than worth the effort. (Also - I have never written a review before writing this one. That is how much we truly loved this place and Erica).

Our family stopped at this great little roadside restaurant before visiting the Tulum Monkey Sanctuary. We were a bit pressed for time and our lovely server did an amazing job of making sure that we got our food as quickly as possible. Everything we ordered was fantastic! Fresh ingredients and wonderful flavors. Loved the selection of different salsas that come with the home made chips. The green was my favorite, but proceed with caution if you can't handle much heat. Would definitely return on our next trip.

Besides the fact that the restaurant is located at the street, there is nothing disappointing about Coqueta.
Service was GREAT, absolutely nice and the quality of our food was awesome! Try the mixed ceviche, delicious. Spent a very good evening and returned the next day. Get there, food is perfect!
