    Worst experience ever, don’t waist your money here. Beware the door security demanded 20$ for tips before even going in. The food was over priced and the drinks were water down I couldn’t believe how much $200 got me here. To top it off the server gave himself a nice tip too and said it was a service charge which was bs. IM all about taking care of staff for their hospitality but can I be the one to determine the amount not the other way around. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!

    This place was not an experience/vibe at all. There was advertisement for gypsy show on Friday nights per their website, that didn’t happen. Our waiter was very polite and informative, but the hosting staff leaves much to be desired. The menu was very limited definitely wasn’t worth the $150usd for 2 drinks and 3 shrimp tacos.

    I was so disappointed to see what has happened to a once wonderful place. The “gypsy disco” night used to be a glamorous and elegant experience that had now turned into a conveyor belt catering to stag and hen parties that used to stay in Cancún and PDC. Times and things change but it’s sadly over for Gitano I’m afraid. Food was still good but the staff kept on getting our order wrong because they couldn’t hear us above the blasting music. But hey who’s eating anymore when you get offered drugs on your way into the toilet every single time.

    Food is good, but not amazing like other restaurants in Tulum. I do think it’s overpriced for just being mediocre. The lobster tostada delicious but not worth $36 for one tostada. I definitely won’t be going back if I visit Tulum again; Arca and Hartwood are much better and not as expensive.

    Dinner was good, food was tasty and a nice atmosphere however the wait staff were rushing us from the start, we had ordered a starter to share and two mains and everything arrived at the same time so the mains were going cold while we ate the starter. Constantly throughout the dinner the wait staff kept interrupting trying to remove plates that we were clearly still eating. This did not change after us telling them many times we weren’t finished. Overall, this disrupted the evening and we felt quite harassed and couldn’t properly enjoy the meal.

    I wish we would have better informed prior that Gitano is more of a club than restaurant. If it is your vibe to eat dinner while club music is going crazy all around you, then go for it! The food was good and the service was great.

    Very good food and excellent service by Andres, our waiter. But then one of the worst things that I have ever seen in a restaurant/bar: 4-6 guys offering COCAINE and other drugs to EVERYONE passing to the toilets. Even man and women. Imagine you with your wife having dinner, she goes to the toilet and someone offers her cocaine, hemp, etc one the way. Certainly with the Gitano staff knowing, because it was no even “hidden”, everybody could see. I don’t know if this is something that “happens” in Tulum, bui I’ve never seen this before in my life, imagine in a so call fancy Tulum restaurant. It’s a shame.

    Food was good. Service was good. We went early so can't speak to the ambiance, but seems like it's more of a party vibe later in the night. Decor and vibe overall super cool, cute, trendy. They did rush us off the table after 90mins even though the place was pretty empty which kind of ruined the experience for me. We probably would have dropped more cash if they would have let us stay.

    Tried to cancel my reservation multiple times and there is no possible way to do it! They only allow you to cancel by calling but the number they give does not work! Any number found I could find online does not work either. I was still charged the fee even though there was no possible way to cancel. No one will answer my messages. Horrible customer service and no way to reach anyone

    The food and ambiance was amazing! However, the drinks were severely overpriced at 390 pesos ($18 USD) per drink and a bottle of water was 190 pesos ( $10 USD)… felt very ripped off. However, the overall experience was great for an occasion.

    Free three trips to Tulum, I’m happy to say that I finally got to experience the original Gitano. I’ve been to NYC Garden of Love and Gitano Miami. Love the vibe and the cocktails! Our service was phenomenal and the music was stellar. Lots of beautiful people, plants and disco balls. What’s not to love?!

    We were offered all kinds of illegal drugs on the way to the bathroom every time. Felt unsafe. We were going to be sat at the far back table even though there were many good tables open and we had reservations months in advance. The liquor menu wasn’t good to match the food.

    Gitano on a Friday night has always been a fun Tulum experience and have done it many times, I probably have been to Tulum 12 times or more in the last 8 years, my first time to Tulum was 17 years ago. But Tulum has changed in the last 3 (most markedly in the past year and half) years so that it is virtually unrecognizable from the hippyish everyone loves everyone, do your own thing, no heels, no designer clothes,relaxed, friendly, amazing music and food town. I’m not sure what has happened, but I feel like I’m in playa del Carmen. Trashy, crowded, insane prices, drugs being offered even to my 18 yo daughter everywhere. She and her friend were aggressively hit on by entitled dirty old men CONSTANTLY. And police of all varieties patrol with machine guns up and down the beach road, are paid privately at some hotels and just randomly at intervals on the street. Interestingly it has the opposite effect of making me feel more safe. Although still a beautiful outdoor venue, Gitano has changed along with everything else. Overly crowded, boring pop dance music, $20 cocktails and so crowded I was literally unable to move on the dance floor. There are no more young people, Tulum is getting an older clientele I believe because of the prices, and this is true for gitano also. And literally every time any one of us went to the bathroom we were asked if we wanted cocaine or any drug by the man outside the restroom. Although food was fast it was definitely a 3.5-4 out of 5 star quality, drinks were good and interesting. The highlight of our night was the tarot card reader who was giving card readings for tips. But he was unaffiliated with gitano. In my estimation it is a travesty what has happened to Tulum, and gitano is no exception. If you like playa del Carmen, you will be happy there, but I won’t be going back.
