On our last day we decided to eat here so that we wouldn't have to go to another ATM machine (most places in Tulum are cash only); So happy to find a place that takes cards. They had a very good band playing music on their sunset deck. Food was decent, nothing to write home about, but we enjoyed good... More

Our concierge at the Palms Hotel in Tulum recommended Mateo's to us for a great place to have dinner after a day at the beach. Mateo's exceeded our expectations. Food outstanding (shrimp tacos, fish tacos, grilled steak on skewerers, and grilled vegetables. Many homemade sauce accompaniments to choose from. Our margaritas were of course outstanding. We ate in the street... More

Great drinks. Super sweet waiter name Octavio.... Had a special with steak, shrimp and chorizo All in a big bowl with a sauce in the middle. Out of this world flavor! Not pretentious... as lots of restaurants have now become in Tulum. Totally great lunch spot to stop on a bike! Been there for years and years!

We came here twice so Im going to write in separate ways: 1. We noticed everyday that this place was always packed, so decided to have dinner here. First, had cocktails in the 2nd floor, a very strong caipirinha and a beer. Then, had dinner downstairs, loved the decorations and the tiki feeling. We had the guacamole, a burguer and,... More

I wish I could upload a video of this place to be able to transport all the readers to the place!! Mateos undoubtedly has the best sundowner experience in TuLum. You see the entire stretch of the mangroves with the beautiful horizon listening to talented local artists singing the most amazing tunes. Would recommend you go early around 5 pm... More

Mateos has a cozy atmosphere and a few different floor levels within the place, 1st Food 2-3 Drinks! Food is good, not great. Highlight is to watch the sunset while enjoying happy hour at the roof top bar!

We ate dinner one night at Mateos, and a second night went to the sports bar since my husband wanted to watch the hockey game. The restaurant is for tourists and loud, so a good place if that appeals to you.
