“Could be excellent, but it wasn't”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Went here on a recommendation from a friend. The food choices are small, which says to me that they can do them well!

The food was really good, the portions were a good size and the service was excellent! There was only one problem....I had a hard time getting across to the waiter that I could not have any flour, which is Harina in Spanish. I thought he understood, but then he came back to the table and talked to my husband about his meal and harina....I should have known there was a problem. My fish was definitely dipped in flour in one side. I was sick for the evening after and the next day :(

I understand the problems is with my language barrier, and my lack of good spanish, that is why I am rating it Good, not poor, because the food was really great!

“Best meal of the trip?”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Very reasonably priced elegance a block off the main drag. Excellent wine selection, attentive service and the food was amazing. We ate and drank too much and we had a fantastic experience.

The atmosphere was surprisingly modern for Tulum yet not totally out of place. We didn't much care for the art on the walls (it's hard to just state out loud... lets just say that if you're a fan of a certain NYC abstract artist from the 80s, you'll have a real problem with the paintings) but the rest of the decor and the music more than made up for that.

Have the arrachera and do order the guacamole.

“Beautiful place, and great food.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

A surprisingly clean, "European style" restaurant with a good atmosphere and a smart composed menu. The staff is nice and the food comes quickly at the table. The prices are in the higher price range in the area, but it's well worth it.

“Great food, trendy atmosphere.”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Very creative entrees. Not an elaborate menu but all the entrees we ordered were very presentable and tasty.

The atmosphere was trendy and relaxing. Were tempted to try dessert but were full with the entrees.

“Every dish was a win”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Fillet Mignon was fantastic, as was the fillet of fish with pineapple. Service was prompt and friendly. Would definitely recommend. Great cocktails too - try the ginger mojitos!
