Description: At Simple we know and respect each ingredient we use, that’s why our menu turns out to be original, simple, and unique. In it we gather the taste of the Pacific, preparing grilled and roasted fish, seafood and vegetables; meat and poultry, cooked in their own juices with the preparation of your choice. We offer portions by the weight designed to be shared (we also offer individual portions), as well as natural and buzzing beverages, in the middle of a cozy atmosphere where you will feel treated just like home. Simple is a family-owned and family-operated restaurant where you will find trust, kindness, happiness, party, music and dancing.

We went there 3 times during our 10 days in Tulum! It's (a the name suggests) very simple, but genuine and very good food! The service is excellent and friendly! Try their ceviche for a starter and for main course there are lots of fish to choose between to be put on their grill! Yes, this is a very nice place!

We hosted our wedding dinner at Simple last Sunday evening. The food was absolutely delicious. They served plenty of food for everyone. Service was great and everyone had a wonderful time. It was not cheap compared to another dinner we hosted for the group the night before, but it was definitely outstanding food and atmosphere.

A small group of of us stumbled upon (and perhaps stumbled in as we were celebrating my birthday!) this awesome little restaurant in the jungle. As the name implies, the food was relatively simple in its preparation, but the flavors we're were incredible. We asked the chef to prepare whatever she wanted for our group and we were blown away. Truly one of our best meals in Tulum!

A group of friends and I stayed in the room above simple for the weekend and Richie and his crew are top notch. When on vacation in tulum I couldn't imagine a better place to eat and relax. Richie is one fantastic chef and a wonderfully warm hearted individual and has a serious passion for creating awsome dishes while having fun and enjoying life. He's passionate about good eats and living. One of the best dining experiences I have ever had, I'm a chef professionally and notoriously a hard person to please and Richie and the staff there are truly a gem. I look forward to going back and hopefully hoping into the kirchen!!

...this is your place. We had a ceviche appetizer (Habanegro) that was not as spicy as I thought it would be (I like a bit of pepper!) and needed more lime, but there were lime wedges at the table, so it was not a problem. My more timid-palated mother loved it and it was her 1st time trying ceviche.

The grilled fish was to die for. The fish we chose was a good size for 2 (but we probably didn't need the ceviche) and the Mazatlan -style preparation is sooooo good (you can get a different preparation on each side if you like--we also had Rosemary and garlic, which was great, but the Mazatlan style is sublime).

We were eating with a baby and the staff was very attentive and helpful. Like all Tulum Zona hotellera places it is not cheap, but would be a reasonable nice meal in your home town. Just go there.
