We had a very nice time at Cenzontle. The catch of the day was perfectly cooked and the vegetables tasty. We even tried a good Mexican pinot noir.

This is the perfect place for a quick drink and some tasty local food to snack on. We sat at the bar and everyone was very friendly and the valladolid barbecue tacos where fantastic. Cool music and nice people.

We love experimenting with mexican flavors and rest of the world cuisine, twist's in conventional mexican dishes, or mexican twist's into traditional world known recipes. Freshly cut, muddle on the spot fruit are the main contents of our cocktailery. We focus in a full Tulum experience, great food, drinks, service and ambiance. Fundado en 2013.
