Had the garlic grouper it was good but others had average food. Heard it was really good maybe we got an off night.

My husband and I shared the grilled seafood platter, and it was truly delicious - among the best meals we had on the trip.

We ate here twice mostly for the delicious brochettes. They didn't have the lobster when we were there but we did enjoy the chicken and the shrimp & steak. We also enjoyed the dessert of coconut ice cream. Get a pitcher of margaritias. Very inexpensive and there were a lot of locals so that tells you something

We have eaten here a couple times. Always have the lobster. It is good, but very small and we always go away hungry. I'd go to La Buena Vida instead.

Mediocre food and service plus mosquitoes based on dinner for 6 on December 27. Inferior to a half dozen other dinners we had in the Tulum

We were recommended (almost obliged) to go there by Happy Tours which we chose to do snorkeling with. The place is okay, nothing special and prices are not really low but probably lower than on the beach. It wasn't easy to find the toilets and you need to borrow a key from the restaurant.
