This place is a little more polished than the local restaurants, and serves alcohol which is nice. Everything is good, but for real good local food I'd go somewhere a bit less polished.

We're staying in a house a couple towns over and have decided that we like the food here the best. It's really excellent. They have great musicians playing nice,unobtrusive music. Stroll the shops after a nummy dinner.

We loved Don Cafeto - think we went four or five times over two weeks. Amazing value for money, great service and simple, well-cooked meals. The live music gives it a great atmosphere. Really don't miss coming here!

Great! Right on the avenue!! If ur near ...go! Shop...shop more..listen and eat. And by the way... when shopping in with MX vendors always start your price 60% less than listed. If you hold tight you can usually get that low price. NEVER pay over 50% list. They will come down. Promise!! I got great stuff for CHEAP!!

The food was good and fresh. The pickled veggies and garlic were great. Salsa too hot for us. It was fairly inexpensive. However, they overcharge if you pay in America dollars. The bill was $550 pesos, but $35 in American dollars, which is no where close to the current exchange rate. Pay in pesos. No problema.

Great visit with our young family. Live music and friendly atmosphere. Staple foods, not gourmet, well worth the effort to visit

I visited this restaurant by recommendation of my taxi driver while in Tulum. It was really good. I had the huevos motuleños, which is a traditional mayan dish and was not dissapointed. My mom had the hotcakes and couldn't get enough of the syrup. The food is affordable and tasty and prepared right in front of you. Service was good... More
