Some of the better food I had in Tulum. There are many restaurants but most are just average. This was a nice place for seafood. The staff was very nice and spoke some English. I would go back.

A friendly English speaking taxi driver gave us a flyer for this place when he was giving us a ride so we thought we'd check it out and give it a try. Right when we showed up we should have turned around and left because it was peak dinner time and there was no one in the place. But to avoid an awkward situation we stayed and were seated by the server.
The menu wasn't very diverse to say the least. We took our time and looked at the menu which was a hasty sheet of paper listing their food with no description. Always willing and open to try something new, we went with the server’s suggestions. We had the avocado filled with shrimp for an appetizer, my wife had the pineapple thing filled with seafood and I had the hot bowl thing that is pictured on the flyer and on this site. Each and every one of these items was exactly the same and none of them looked like what was shown in the picture. The shrimp were tiny and they were few and far between all the disgusting other miscellaneous seafood pieces.
Everything tasted horrible and there's no lighter way of saying it. I'm a big fan of seafood (I'm from Maine) and we tried this place because they offer "fresh seafood" I'm telling you, there was nothing fresh about it.
We couldn't even finish our plates they were so disgusting. We were polite and told them we were just too full to finish and we asked for our check. After realizing that I didn't have enough Pesos to cover the bill I asked if they take American dollars, which they did, at 11 peso per dollar. This was another mistake. I just wanted to leave at this point so I left 40 bucks, this was more than enough to cover our food and more than enough for a tip. After we left there was an exchange right down the street give 12.54 peso's per US dollar.
We ended up walking down the street and finding a place that was full of people that had excellent food.
I would never recommend for anyone to eat here.

We spent a week in Tulum. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner on different days. Great food and excellent service. We can't wait to return and see our friends. You must try the Langostino appetizer with drinks. The bisteka special was great. I came close to ordering a second one eventhough I was stuffed from the first one. Owners and staff are friendly and attentive. No matter where you stay in Riviera Maya, makje the drive to Tulum and El Galeon De Guerrero.
