This place looked pretty good. Not cheap, but decent. The wait staff was quick to get our drinks to us, but after we ordered our food it was a good 25 min before we receive our tacos. Tacos! The place was maybe 1/3 full so not busy at all, so not sure what happened. Not a huge deal as we... More

Took a break from our all inclusive and came here for lunch. We love the tacos and appreciated that out of this tiny bare bones kitchen they produced a good meal for a family of 11.

Nice, relaxed restaurant in Tulum. Food was great and the prices where cheap as well. The only issue we had was the exchange rate they offered, 13:1 on US dollars when everywhere else was at 18:1. If you are eating at El Mariachi Loco, make sure you have pesos. Saying that, we still really enjoyed the food.

We went there for our first dinner in Tulum. We had some excellent tacos with camarones accompanied by the traditional rice, black beans and veggies and... margarita! Our waiter was vey nice and layback. We sat on the first row of their rather large dining room so that we could enjoy the passers by. I like that! But we especially... More

Stopped in here on the recommendation of a staff member from our resort who lives in Tulum pueblo. It was quiet as it was a weekday just before noon. The meal was tasty and economical. We shared a plate of 5 shrimp tacos which was plenty for both of us. The shrimp was deep fried which was a surprise but... More

We stopped off in the town between ruins and wanted to find somewhere to eat that would be genuinely good Mexican food. We chose this place as it looked very chilled our, comfy and cool in the midday heat. The server (who we think was the owner) was so friendly and helpful and not pushy at all! We both had... More

During our 6 day stay in Tulum on the beach we found this little spot on the strip just from driving. We had a rental car so and was about 10min from our resort. We went back twice if that explains it. This place was amazing, the food on point. Now understand something you are in a small town of... More

Had great food at decent prices. 2 for 1 drinks are always a good deal. Servers are attentive, music sucked a lil but whatever. Should try it out. Tacos were great! We had chicken, marinated pork, and fish
