El Capitan


             From a sunny Tulum, I welcome you on our website.



After 5 years restaurants in Playa del Carmen to have had, we said goodbye to the crowd and we went looking for a quieter spot.

An hour south and approximately 4 kilometer from the beautiful Caribbean beaches, we found the still authentic little village of  Tulum.

That what ten years ago consisted of only a few houses and a petrol station along the Cancun-Chetumal highway has now grown into a charming village.

Right in the center of Tulum on October 15, 2008 we opened for the first time the door of our restaurant “EL CAPITAN” .

As the name suggests, our menu consists mainly of all the goodies that the Caribbean ocean has to offer as lobster, shrimp, octopus and a variety of different fish.

Of course there is our delicious authentic Mexican cuisine including dishes such as tacos, fajitas, nachos and quesadillas.

And for those who don’t like all this exotic food, there are delicious pastas, salads, vegetarian dishes and homemade hamburgers and fries!

As if all this good food is no reason enough for you to come to ’EL CAPITAN” than maybe the coldest Corona’s and 12 different types of tequila on the menu could be !


                                Hasta la vista en Tulum!

                                                 See you in Tulum!
