The place is in a side road, it has not a great location but the people are very welcoming. The food was ok, something good something less good. Anyway a good breakfast in a friendly restaurant in Tulum to start your day. Great service, needs to work on food quality.

Having read excellent reviews about Le Bistro, we headed here on first occasion. Maybe I just had bad luck,, the bread was not fresh and the coffee not good at all, but this visit was certainly a disappointment...
