Cool place for dinner! We enjoyed the food and really liked the atmosphere! Recommend Mateos to anyone in Tulum although we found more summery spots in Tulum. Still a nice place to eat!

Reasonable prices and very nice food. We happen to be at happy hour and 1 margarita = 1 free. They also have some coctails of the day ( pineapple juice with mezcal on the rocks ). There was live music and then dj. Recommended

The cocktails were two for one and really all you need it one because they so bad! The burritos have no flavour - the best thing about the place is the sunset from the top bar and that’s free.

This is a very eclectic restaurant. We went twice. Once to see a NFL game-which didn't quite work the way we had expected, but still had a nice time. The second, because the food was so good the first time. The first time we went,...More
