We found this restaurant after exploring some of the quieter side streets in downtown Tulum. I was drawn to the menu because of the great prices, especially for the papas fritas (french fries) which my husband was craving, but wouldn't pay the high prices being charged at most other places. Being vegetarians, I usually stay away from the places that... More

This restaurant is nothing fancy. Just some tables and chairs. But if you want to eat great fresh fish, other seafood or ceviche..l. this is the place to go. Visited by locals only, you receive the best Mexico has to offer; warm hospitality, cold beer and great food cooked the way you ask for! Cant recommend it enough!!

Tucked away from the throngs of tourists is this little gem of a restaurant! We had fish tacos which were fine, but the superstar of our meal were the ceviche tostadas. An incredible portion size for a small price, fresh and delicious. After eating many delicious batches of ceviche at other local restaurants, I decided this was my favorite. We... More

At lunch you can even get free botanos (free food with drinks). This is just a small locals place and is nothing fancy but it is clean, the seafood was swimming a... More

We went to Don Huacho on our first trip to Tulum in 2007 and really liked it. When we returned to Tulum in 2009 it had moved from its location right on the main avenue and we never did manage to find it. If anyone knows where it is now, please send me a personal message. I would love to... More

If you looking for something more genuine you have to visit this place. Ask for today's specials and order many different dishes to try (it is cheap). I can recommend "mixed ceviche" and Octopus. This is not a luxury restaurant. It is a typical local seafood place with great food and friendly staff.
