We had a few dishes at the restaurant, and whilst all were good, the Angus arrachera is fantastic. Great for the price, would have paid two to three times that much for a steak that good in Britain.

We visited this place because it was pack. However, it was highly disappointing. There is much better food to be had in Tulum. Just to hit on a few points. The salsas did not combined well with the food. One of them had a taste closer to marinara than a Mexican salsa. The meat was not well seasoned either.

This is a great little restaurant. I had the New York steak with a baked potato and my husband had the salmon burger. Very well presented and cooked to perfection. The service was excellent- attentive but not obtrusive.

Hands down one of the best meals we had in Tulum. The steak and chorizo tacos were amazing. This restaurant is very busy and long line of people waiting. I recommend reservations. A must try while in Tulum. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Found this restaurant on trip advisor, I would definitely recommend this restaurant. The steaks were fantastic as were the natcho starter. The ambience and service was also terrific. We are going back.

The rib eye steak was very hard ( we asked for medium well and got it well done). The tacos were good. The vegetables were just o.k.

This in-town restaurant is worth a taxi ride from the beach. The grilled meats are more Argentine than Mexican and everything was delicious. It's a local place--there were only a handful of tourists. Service is great, portions are huge and prices were very inexpensive.
