Gave this a shot and was really looking forward to it. Great reviews= moderate expectations. Arrived at 8pm on Sunday. Seated immediately. Half full restaurant. Waiter was pleasant. Ceviche was decent... wouldn't get it again. Heard great things about the chips and dips... got chips...More

The mixed grill is highly recommended! Don't eat to much of Nachos or else you'll be too full for you main course. Get any of the fruit juice it's good and has pulp in it. Went twice in the same day lol. It's very hot...More

Hello, to be honest I don't really remember because we speak Spanish also, but I guess they have it . But don't worry the people are very friendly and helpful .

we are a group of 37 volunteers working in the Mayan villages outside of Tulum do you take reservations it would be for one night ...either April 10,11 or 12, 2017 - we usually eat about 6pm can you send a picture of the menu so we can get a feel for prices as we have to budget for each meal.. the team leader pays for food and soda and water - alcoholic beverages are the responsibility of the team members do you have a day that you are closed? thank you in advance for your help...
