A great way to end the day with a cocktail in hand as the sunsets over the Mayan jungle. Climb up to the 3rd deck enjoy a margarita and take it all in.

The have excellent craft beer, and the food is good (not amazing but definitely good). The highlight: watching the sunset from its rooftop (5pm to 8pm). There's an amazing DJ set sometimes joined by a Sax player. It's really... More

We visited Mateo's two times during our stay in Tulum. We had breakfast, dinner and watched the sunset from their roof top bar. The staff was very friendly and service minded. The view from the roof top bar is amazing. Good food and good drinks.

We just opted for snacks of kebabs and quesadillas. But they offer a full range of catering options. Management was responsive and payment was easy! We stayed... More

Great casual Mexican food and drink in an unusual setting. You are on the beach road but you can sit 3 stories in a wood/ treehouse like structure for drinks at the bar. Fish tacos were amazing with a mojito. Good band starts playing about 830pm. Very nice atmosphere. The service was great, the waiters so attentive. Great way to... More
