“"Simpatico lugar"”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We were offered a round of tequila the two times we went!!! Waiters are super nice- as a present they even made a flower and cricket by hand!!! Perfect casual place to get together with friends; order 4 appetizers to share and a cold beer and have it outside.

“Must visit”
Reviewed 9 June 2014 via mobile

Looking for authentic Mexican. This is it. Great service and atmosphere. Antonio was great with the kids making sure our picky eaters were able to find something to eat. Guacamole was incredible. Best of all didn't break the bank on price.

“Awesome Mexican Food, the best guacamole, fish, pina colada!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

We loved this restaurant and our waiter, Luis, so much that we returned twice in 5 days, both times for lunch. It was child friendly, on a quiet side street off of the main street, had cool swings at the bar, suspended from above. We loved the fish with garlic and butter, and the Guacamole was the best we have ever had in Mexico or the U.S.A. The pina colada was also the best we had during our 10 days in Mexico. Obviously, since we returned twice, we loved it. It should be in the ranking of top 5 restaurants in Tulum.

“Friendly Service and Great Price”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Very friendly servers and managers! We went there twice. It's small but located on a street where lots of tourist go. Nice to sit outside. Warning- Enchiladas in Tulum are not like Enchiladas in the states. It was tasty even though certain meats would be a little tough. Very good prices. And when we were done eating, they offered complimentary tequila shots! And down that street is a little bar with the best Mojito's ever! You'll see a permanent parked volkswagon outside that bar.

“Great food and service, reasonably priced”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner at La Malquerida. I had the fajitas and my parents had the grouper and the pork filet (enchilada on the menu). We all loved our meals, and our waiter Armando was terrific. At the end of dinner he made my mother and me roses out of the napkins. Highly recommend.
