Description: LA PARRILLADA is a nice place, Is far to the confusion of the main street where you can eat in the garden or in its roomy interior with capacity for more than sixty people. It has the best quality cuts of meat ANGUS since the owner also owns a butcher (located next to the restaurant) that distributes meat imports into the area to wholesale and retail. Bestsellers cuts are ARRACHERA ANGUS (typical Mexican court), the ENTRANA ANGUS (outside skirt), classic cuts RIB EYE, NEW YORK, T-BONE and most are very affordable but exclusive special courts like the RIB STEAK 710grs , COWBOY 644grs and among other highlights the TOMAHAWK 1kg (reservations). To accompany meats and sauces esquisitas chips of the three most famouse CHIPOTLE Mexican chilies, HABANERO and JALAPENO obviously homemade. Prices are affordable to all and offers daily promotions that 2x1 on different dishes. The tiramisu (dessert) classic, strawberry, and pineapple are also delicious homemade. The spaces allow us to offer the possibility to organize birthday parties, events, etc.. Coming soon Opening the huge roof terrace restaurant of the same ...

If you love steaks this is a must go. They offer different cuts eg. flank, strip, filet, t-bone, entrecôte from US Prime Beef and all come with delicious sides. I stayed one week in tulum and came twice trying 4(!) different cuts. Thank you for this!

Got there 8 pm on a Monday. There were two vacant tables in the outdoor seating where the singer/guitarist was. We went to sit at one and the owner came along in a panic and said it was reserved. He offered us a table out in the gravel by the curb or one inside. We chose inside and after we settled in he came over and said the table was reserved for 9:00 but we could sit there as long as we agreed to move at 9:00 (!).
The owner’s English was almost incomprehensible and he seemed to have a poor grasp of Spanish, but fortunately the waitress who brought our drinks knew both and got me the wine I’d ordered.
The rare ribeyes we ordered took forever and were literally almost raw, but with the service we’d had so far we were loathe to send them back. They were very fatty and stringy.
Overall, I would say this place compared unfavorably to Logan’s Roadhouse or similar steak chains in the US, only with animals roaming the floor.

We loved our fillet steak it came with mash and veggies. There was also a great atmosphere with a man singing and playing guitar. If you want steak this is the place to come in Tulum!

We would really recommend this restuarant - the service was great - the guy that owns it really knows his stuff and we had a sharing plate of different types of meat - which were sublime - not only great food though, lovely decor, and setting, and great service - we thought it was the best meal experience we had had on our holiday.
It is all about steak mind you - but if thats what you are looking for this is the best -and we were recommeded a beautiful red wine too - and really not too expensive - we'd have gone back lots had we not discovered it on our last night!!

Took the recommendation from the waiter for the steak combo to share, and it was the best decision we’ve made in a while. I think it was called the Mixed Grill. It was plenty of food for my wife and I to share. The waiter turned out to be the cook as well. He cooked it right behind us and was super friendly. The steaks and sausage we fabulous along with the vegetables and the bread. They actually like chisel their salt off of a huge piece of salt, and everything else seemed to be that fresh too. The restaurant itself has a fantastic atmosphere, and we’d eat there every night if we could.
