We asked locals at the ruins for a seafood recommendation, and weren't let down. We had grilled and coconut shrimp, simple but some of the best I've had. The restaurant was busy, but service was great. Flan also good.

We asked our hotelier for the best seafood in town - he directed us to this place. This is where local folks go when they want great seafood at great prices.

We had a very good time... stayed longer than we usually do because there was so much local "life" going on. The place was busy and somewhat crowded, but that just meant it was easy to meet some other travelers and swap stories.

This was one of our best experiences in the Yucatan this trip. Highly recommend you give it a try!

A local taxi took us to the ruins and afterwards we asked him to recommend a good place to eat and he brought us here. As son as we saw the locals queueing up to get in we knew we had the right place. It is seafood - just seafood. I ordered a mixed plate and because I was feeling peckish ordered the medium. When it came I didn't know whether to eat it or climb it! There was so much I invited the driver to come and join us and even he didn't make much of a dent. Everything we ordered was really good. Don't miss this one!

Good fish and seafood, Ceviche was massive and good. The shrimp tacos were not the best choice though. Great atmosphere!

We were recommended here by our hotel secret garden as fresh fresh fish and did it ever deliver! We ate here twice on our three days in tulum. Super friendly staff, who were so patient with our non existent Spanish. Try the super delish seafood soup, full of fresh prawns, calamari, octopus, fish. Also tried the prawns with tortillas and rice and the whole fish fillet any style you like, breaded, grilled, in garlic, in butter. Take the time to trek a little further out of town as we would defiantly go again!
