When you can find red Coca Cola plastic furniture you know you're right! :D We had salbutes and panuchos and my mum grilled camarones. Everything was delicious and the woman serving us... More

I enjoyed my shrimp with pepper and onions dish which included rice, beans and fresh guacamole. Fast food made to order - food was prepared fresh and according to my liking. Authentic Mexican food, located across bus terminal.

This restaurant is similar in to other restaurants in Tulum, but their food is absolutely spectacular. If you are anything like me, you want to taste fresh veggies in your Mexican food, and they have the freshest lettuce, onions and tomatos, preserved onions and delicious queso fresco and crema. My boyfriend and I had tacos al pastor, tostadas, and huaraches,... More

If you are looking for inexpensive but good food this is the right place for you. The food is prepared fresh and authentic Mexican food is available. The owners are lovely and very friendly. We ate there quite a few times and never were disappointed. Great value for money.

Very simple, no fuss place in the Main Street of tulum town directly across the bus terminal. Money changer nearby. Shops and taxis everywhere. Lady at the cafe speaks no English but we managed to order with so much laughter. For each person spending 45 or more pesos, you get a fresh juice for free. We ordered 5 dishes -... More

I love this place, the good is delicious and is prepared quickly and with love. The prices are fantastic and they are always willing to make me a vegetarian meal packed with lots of different veggies. Added bonus, they have wifi! The veggie burrito is my favourite. If you're in Tulum you need to go to this place!
