“Excellent value and good food”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

This has to be one of the best value restaurants where quality food is served. We loved it all three times we came here. It's not in the most pleasant of locations but if you are in town it is a good option. One suggestion to the restaurant is having written menus instead of telling the guests. The Argentinian waitress rattles out unusual dish/food items in Spanish but isn't patient and doesn't slow down when you ask her to repeat or explain. The Italian cook however was very nice.

“Would have been better if the menu items were available.!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

Went for lunch, small menu about 6 or 7 dishes. My first 3 choices were unavailable, so just ordered an apple carrot & ginger juice. After 30 mins got a glass of lemon juice.... I guess they pulled the wrong jug from the fridge. Fortunately we found La hoja verde further up the street.

“Best food in Tulum. MUST SEE !!!!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

We ate there every day for 5 days lunch and dinner and i can truly say this is some of the best food i have ever had. Not only super delicious, healthy and Colorful but also best price. The food on the beach is overpriced and far from good. I highly highly recommend this place. Its a must see.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

This is a great little restaurant in Tulum. I was thrilled to find a vegetarian restaurant in Tulum. There was a wide variety of flavors and textures. It was anything but boring! One of the best meals I had in Tulum.

They also have a variety of drinks such as ginger and apple which are very refreshing in the heat.

“Not bad but nothing special”
Reviewed 26 March 2014 via mobile

The staff and service was wonderful. I was expecting light healthy food but a lot of it was baguettes, pasta and creamy soups. I had the mango ceviche which was mainly cubes of raw beetroot. My husband had an entree, main, dessert and flavoured water (the water is delicious) as a deal for $110, a huge amount of food.
Good value but we preferred more locally influenced food.
