We went there with our driver & guide for lunch (after visiting Coba and before visiting Tulum). It was really good and we'd recommend it. We had the grilled fish and the chicken fajitas. If you want our driver/guide's contact information, feel free to contact us. We were HIGHLY satisfied and would gladly provide our recommendation. :) Cheers! :D

This place is a little more polished than the local restaurants, and serves alcohol which is nice. Everything is good, but for real good local food I'd go somewhere a bit less polished.

We're staying in a house a couple towns over and have decided that we like the food here the best. It's really excellent. They have great musicians playing nice,unobtrusive music. Stroll the shops after a nummy dinner.

We loved Don Cafeto - think we went four or five times over two weeks. Amazing value for money, great service and simple, well-cooked meals. The live music gives it a great atmosphere. Really don't miss coming here!

Great! Right on the avenue!! If ur near ...go! Shop...shop more..listen and eat. And by the way... when shopping in with MX vendors always start your price 60% less than listed. If you hold tight you can usually get that low price. NEVER pay over 50% list. They will come down. Promise!! I got great stuff for CHEAP!!

The food was good and fresh. The pickled veggies and garlic were great. Salsa too hot for us. It was fairly inexpensive. However, they overcharge if you pay in America dollars. The bill was $550 pesos, but $35 in American dollars, which is no where close to the current exchange rate. Pay in pesos. No problema.

Great visit with our young family. Live music and friendly atmosphere. Staple foods, not gourmet, well worth the effort to visit
