Due to slow wifi connections the original review stalled in its uploading. We dined here in the evening of Wednesday 8/3/17. We three middle aged British guys are travelling around Quintana Roo and settled in Tulum on a Wednesday afternoon at Weary Traveller Hostel/Mundo Maya Hostel. After a trip to the beach, return for WTH for Caipirinhas we were pretty... More

The Steaks and Margherita's at El Asadero were excellent. I would suggest making a reservation as they were very busy, we did and our table was ready when we arrived. I highly suggest the house special, Arrachera (skirt) steak, very flavorful and cooked to perfection.

we had a good meal here and enjoyed good service but they can be hard to attract attention at times. There is difficulty finding enough quality staff in a small place like Tulum so give them a break.

Great food with great service. Book your table before going or be ready to wait. Tight atmosphere with small tables close to each other. We ate few times here and always left satisfied.

I asked for a thick cut, medium rare. I don't think they have thick cuts, every steak is 1/2 in or 1.2 cm or less, which cooks very quickly. Although tasty meat, but cooked to a medium well (dry), and of course I was starving, I did not send it back. My mistake. My husband asked for the identical steak... More

We had a large party of 16 people and the restaurant accommodated us with ease - both in space and service. The food was really good - great steaks, fajitas and other traditional Mexican food. It was also pretty reasonably priced. All in all, good night out!

Found this gem via TA and could not be more pleased. It's a small and quaint place. We just walked up and had to put our name on a waiting list but just walked around and came back 30min later to get seated. The service was impeccable and the food.... so good. The meat is just mouthwatering. Cooked to perfection.... More

We were there a couple of times for dinner. Had an awesome experience there every time. Food takes minutes to get and the waiters have absolute control. It's very busy at nights though since herds of americans flood the place and because of this the service can be quite stressed. They also take reservations which is ridiculous for a place... More

Highly recommended for everything coming off the grill. The cactus was also delicious and perfectly cooked.
