This is a quaint little place, but definitely worth the visit. The fettuccini alone merits several visits! A simple menu, non-pretentious, and filled with little gems. Locally sourced fish. Excellent service by the owners and their staff, along with impecable presentation. Please order the fettuccini!...More

We went to eat here from the reviews. We had a large red snapper whole fish with bruschetta and vegetables. The fish melted in your mouth. The waiter was friendly, however the women whom we think owned the restaraunt was not overly friendly.

Simple yet exquisite food and as fresh as it gets. It's fine dining offered in a small cozy place and a great price. A place that can offer quality to its clients. Very satisfied and a must if you are in tulum.

Doesn't look like much from the sidewalk, but best quality seafood we had in Tulum. Went to a fancy restaurant in the resort/beach area the night before and spent twice as much and the service was half as good. El Paz Nativo is a 5*...More
