We had an incredible stay at Tulemar in July 2021 and the TuleCafe was part of that incredible experience. The food was AMAZING. I couldn't believe we had such incredible, gourmet meals in such a remote, beautiful location. I'm not sure how they pulled it...off so impeccably and so beautifully. We liked it so much that we ate almost every meal at or from the cafe. Tulemar gives you area recommended restaurants that you may want to try, but TuleCafe was better! Omar, in particular, was a wonderful help to us several times and was so welcoming and kind. The people, like Omar, made the whole experience for us. We can't wait to go back and have all our meals at TuleCafe :).More

Omar! Omar went above and beyond in his service. He was very accommodating and friendly. I got the beef tenderloin which was good and hit my taste buds in all the right places. Yum. Food was good but Omar made the night.

Amazing restaurant and amazing food, it was storming very heavy while we were here but it just added to the amazing experience. Omar, our waiter, also made the experience much more enjoyable, he recommended a dish for me which I loved and gave us various...travel tips to make our trip more fun, he was also very funny with great jokes. A 5 star experience and would recommend for anyone even if you aren’t staying at the resort, which we weren’t either.More
