Being from Yucatan, I can say that the food has the authentic Yucatan flavor, you can also appreciate that hygiene with food preparation. The staff is very friendly and the prices are affordable. The motuleños eggs are very tasty!

Out of the 6 days in tulum, we ate here 5 times. Tons of options of delicious foods. All super fresh and great presentation. The folks that work here are super sweet as well. Very glad we found them.

Drawn to this place by the women cooking away in the open and the simple and cheap menu. As vegetarians we wouldn't eat most of the food but quesadillas and empanadas con queso were delicious, and the simple delight of tasty chilequiles con huevos. After...More
