El almacén is a hidden gem off the main road. Worth getting there however you do. Great alternative to the classic local food. Super cozy atmosphere and good vibes all around.

This is a little-known place, off the beaten path and worth discovering. Good pizza and Argentine empanadas served by a nice guy. The pizzas are not small, they are sized to share. Excellent value in a homey setting, this humble spot is perfect after feasting on rich, expensive meals for a few days. Empanadas, pizza and beer let you refresh... More

Love the pizza, love the music, love the beer, love the proprietress. Enough said! :) It's a little bit off the beaten track but well worth it if you want a trendy bite or drink away from the crowds on Avenida Tulum.

Quiet restaurant in a quiet neighborhood with excellent pizzas and company. Perfect place to enjoy cold drinks and hot argentinian empanadas after a hard day roasting yourself under the sun on the beach. Recommended!!!

The empanadas are done to perfection and the pizza was awesome. Had the Serrano ham and cherry tomatoes. Prices are great. Highly recommend.

No one seems to know about this. Best pizza served by a nice guy from the other side of Mexico. But don't order a pizza per person as we did. Unless you want pizza for breakie, which is not a bad option

We really wanted to try this place. Unfortunately the map on Trip Advisor was incorrect and we never found it. Sadly this is our last night in Tulum and the restaurant just missed two customers.
