On our 5 day trip we ate 3 meals at Charlie's. Back patio is amazingly cute and the fish tacos were incredible!!! Only issue was we went for breakfast one morning at 11 and breakfast was to be served until 11:30am but they told us it was only lunch. So we had quesadillas for our first meal of the day... More

Nice dinner...nothing unusual....pretty typical. Service was good as was the meal. Wish they offered more vegan options...but we asked for some edits in the menu and they made the changes for us. A nice night out.

Maybe an off night but the service was a little, which wasn't a real problem as we had no where to go. The food was okay but I don't think we will go back to this one. The courtyard garden is kind of cool!

Having been to Charlie's on a number of occasions over the last few years I do enjoy going there when in Tulum. I find the location perfect for watching what is transpiring as the day passes. Both food and beverage are consistently very good and at a reasonable price. Charlie and his staff are very customer focused and display a... More

Very authentic and very good food. The service was Speedy Gonzales and the prices were good. We asked around for the best soups in town and they didn't disappoint. They gave us free home made chips and dip....which was 'muy caliente' even though they said it was just mild, still we ate over half of it because it was that... More

This place has the best ceviche in town. Hands down. Also, the carnitas entree is perfect. Great margaritas and the staff is wonderful. We have been going the the Titeres Tulum puppet shows there on Sundays. Highly recommended!

We've been trying food and drinks in restaurants in the Tulum area and we've been disappointed so many times. We went to Ziggy's on the coast. Beautiful setting but horrible food and drinks. It seems that Tulum restaurants have decided that they don't need to put alcohol in their mixed drinks or even fully juice them with what's requested: I... More

Went for dinner with kids. Food is ok but the restaurant itself is nice with friendly staff. Colourful decor and seemingly everything on the walls for sale. Average prices and whilst not the best in town for food or value, by no means the worst either. A large garden seating area at the back so spacious and good for large... More
