“Excellent food in a relaxed friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed 5 February 2012

The Altamar was recommended to us by the owner of the Secret Garden hotel where we were staying. This was definitely a great recommendation! We had an excellent meal and service was friendly and professional. On the menu were choices of a variety of fresh local fish as well as meat. Great desserts also especially the chocolate cake. Would definitely eat there again!

“Great fish restaurant in Tulum”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

Good service, excellent presentation, reasonably priced and of course wonderful food. We ate here twice - a nice alternative to all the standard fare Mexican food served up along the main strip.

“Quality all around”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

Good service, amazing food, and at a reasonable price as well. We´ve found most things in Tulum over priced during the tourist season but this restaurant was a pleasant surprise! Definitely go if you can

“Up Close and Cooking with Erik”
Reviewed 10 January 2012

My wife and i were thrilled to see a local chef offering a cooking class. Eric (the Chef) prepared an array of traditional sauces ranging from extremely hot to mild that accompanied the tasty homemade ceviches, empanadas and batter fried shrimps. All made right then with us lending a hand. Eric even went as far as giving us the histories and fun stories to go along with dishes. At the end of the "class" we all ate the prepared food while tasting tequilas and home made margaritas.
All the recipes are printed out for you to keep as well as your own tortilla press to take home.
We highly recommend spending a few hours with Eric and all he has to offer.
