Simple restaurant on a good location in the middle of Tulum town. Good, quick and personal service. Big meny with genuine, mexican food. We tried the guacamole and fajitas and were very satisfied. Prices are good and the atmosphere is busy and nice. Outside the restaurants there were a band playing music during our visit and next to it there are some really popular bars. Good place for dinner in Tulum town.

If you want to be in the 'center if it' - this is your place. And restaurants are never busy by chance, right?
Combine a nice terrasse in a central location (and being on a pedestrian street helps), good food at reasonable prices, nice and efficient service (given the crowd), and you have the recipe for success and a pleasant evening. We enjoyed ours :)

The staff, the swing bar and the location are incredible but only second to the food! Hands down some of the best truly traditional Mexican fare. Please try the ceviche. It's just too good to pass up!!

We were in Tulum for a week, and went to La Malquerida twice. Both times we were very pleased with the food, the timely service, the cozy ambiance. We once had Mexican food, very tasty and authentic, and the second time had the mixed seafood grill (picture attached). Full of great fish, shrimp, octopus. Although they were out of lobster, they made up by cutting the price of the dish by 30% (we asked what discount we would get for lack of lobster), while still adding some more seafood to fill us up- so, great attention to customer satisfaction! Also: fabulous drinks and a rich flan (generous portion!) for desert. Totally recommend this as a great lunch/ dining option in town.

Went there twice. Tacos are ok, but not their strong suit (street tacos are by far better). This is more of a dinner restaurant. I had the shrimp plate while my husband had the octopus plate. Both were delicious, and the octopus was very well prepared and tender. Service was fast, even though the place was at full capacity.
