“Excellent service/ceviche”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 December 2013 via mobile

Really friendly service; they were very tolerant of my lack of Spanish. I had the guacamole and then the ceviche and both were excellent.

“Best service and food of 3 weeks in Tulum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

We found this place by accident for lunch during a rainstorm.....happy accident!
Went back for dinner...filet de pescado es muy excellente y camarones diablo esta tambien!
But even better our waiter Armando made us feel so welcome and cared for-as though we were dining in his home. We have seen a lot of great service in our 4 weeks here but he takes the cake! He even made a lovely origami rose from a napkin and then comp'd us tequila shots!
A troup of boys came by collecting money for the church- reciting the Christmas story in unison.
Charmed to death.....our favorite spot in Tulum pueblo

“How it should be...!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

We drove by car to this place to have a quick drink. Five hours later we went home walking. We had the best time. Very, very kind owners with a rose for the ladies. The swings are great and the food was very good. After two weeks of Mexico, this was the first tequilla we had and we had a blast. Must go when you're in Tulum!!

“The Bartender Albert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2013

I love a place that has a bartender that is attentive to his patrons. Albert got the job done. Aside from his excellent service, he is also very capable behind a camera. He keeps his margaritas simple and his pours heavy. The other added benefit, aside from feeling welcome and taken care of is that the kitchen can put out some food. The ceviche was very tasty and the green and red sauces served with chips were fantastic. We had a couple shared dishes for breakfast and dinner here, nothing disappointed.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013 via mobile

We only happened to this place because they were advertising they show sports on big screen and we wanted to watch football. Didn't expect anything of the food - and what a pleasant surprise we got! Food was great here, service was super friendly - even though the guy who took care of us spoke no English, we got along just fine. Prices were also unbelievably low, especially for the food that you get. All in all this was one of the best places we ate at during our stay in Tulum.
