We’ve eaten at this restaurant many times and we’ve never been disappointed. Food is freshly made and sooo tasty! Very speedy service. Casual and relaxed atmosphere.

This was our favourite restaurant in Tulum during our first two stays, the last one in 2016. This time, it was an all-around disappointment. Service was very slow, but this I can understand and overlook. The rest--not so much. The drinks, supposedly alcoholic, were hopelessly...More

We had dinner here last night. I rarely write reviews, but felt compelled to due to the low blow that was leveled by an earlier reply about the writer getting sick after eating there. This guy surely is a disgruntled competitor who is envious. Everything...More

Dont be fooled by the long lines of tourists on the waitlist. I got terrible food poisoning after easting a mixed ceviche and octopus plate. Prices are expensive for the taste, which is loaded with lemon and garlic, masking any real flavor. Writing this review...More

This place was packed with mostly locals when we arrived but the wait wasn’t long. Highly recommend their tuna.

This is a really busy restaurant so I had big expectations about it, everything was very fresh and we'll cooked but nothing that you couldn't find in another places in Tulum. The service was great. Gotta go back to eat their speciality.

Fantastic food and great prices. Portions are huge so order light. That will be a challenge as no doubt you will want most of what's on the menu. I also had a margarita, it wasn't amazing, but very decent. I'll be going back for sure.
