We were brought in by the pollo mole on the menu and it was delicious. Just the right spice combinations and velvety texture in your mouth. The sweet potatoes that went along with it were creamy and sweet. Our first course was the ceviche, a must order. Ginger, almonds, carrots, fish all wrapped by thin slices of cucumber. I was...

Went for dinner twice! Excellent food, live shows and fantastic customer service, I think the waitress name is Mayela. Good job!

This place doesn't really fit the bill if you're looking for authentic mexican food, but it has something that most every other place we visited seemed to lack: Super prompt and friendly service. In Tulum, you get used to having to ask for things like napkins or hot sauce. You sometimes have to ask your server twice for your glass... More

Very Tulum in style, atmosphere, and staff. Original dishes which at times felt gourmet. Still tourist prices, but better value than other restaurants in the area. Love the live music, pre-recorded house mixes, and decor. Recommend the chocolate cake over the guava cheesecake.

We went to this little bar every night for a drink and entertainment. The service was excellent, as well as the drinks. They had a different band every night, excellent music.

Live acts make the atmosphere of this quirky restaurant very lively, as does the French owner circulating between tables. Great items on the menu making the best of local ingredients with a twist. The drinks are also highly recommended (both alcoholic and non alcoholic). Try the beef with chocolate sauce, somehow it works very well!

We found this restaurant/bar/music club last year and loved it. We went back three times last week and loved it just as much. There was a different traveling musical group each night. (One night it also featured flamenco dancing.) One of the groups was bad, but the other two were excellent, way above the level of some of the hotel/restaurant... More

We never ate here but went twice for the live music and drinks. We walked over after having drinks at Mateo's next door. The band was really fun and each night there were people dancing. We had great drinks and their fresh juice is also delicious. The servers were nice but we really enjoyed their ambiance and live music.

We didn't actually eat a meal at this restaurant. We came in after eating next door, which was a good meal, but we had one of the best experiences of our trip. There was a group of musicians playing and singing Mexican music, very talented and passionate, which we were enthralled by. We had beers and the restaurant served snacks... More

Really disappointing experience. Our lobster was dry, tough and cold, as was their second attempt. Had to end up going with the vegetarian option instead. And to add insult to injury, they tried to charge us for the lobsters we sent back. The vibe was good, but the food and service let it down.
