Macario presents an ode to Mexican haute cuisine, reinterpreting its flavors, smells and textures in culinary works of art that will transport you to the indications of a millenary culture that knew how to extract the best that mother earth had to contribute and transform it into sumptuous creations recognized worldwide.

Located in the hotel zone of Tulum, Macario boasts contemporary baroque architecture, inspired by the unique essence of Mexico, a vast country of dogmas and doctrines dating back centuries. Creating the perfect conjunction between the jungle, indigenous culture and chic.

Eating is a biological act; cooking is a cultural act. Our cuisine is a perfect representation of this culture.

    Was the best place I’ve ever eaten. The service was amazing, and the food sublime. Had the roast cauliflower, and tuna tostada as appetizers, shared a prime filet shank cooked right in front of us, and the cacao volcano all of which were delicious. The mixed drinks were unique and delicious, with plenty of non-alcoholic choices. It ended with a parade and the DJ was really good. The ambiance was super fun!

    Went there for our anniversary since we have visit a couple of Grupo Anderson restaurants (Porfirios in Merida and BAK in Tulum) and have great experiences in both of them. The restaurant is beautiful , the ambient, entertainment and service is really great. Now the things that I find not soo good and of course is my personal opinion; first every restaurant of that quality that i have visit have valet parking but at Macarios Tulum not only you have to pay 200 pesos for parking at the time you park then at the time of pick your vehicle up the person bringing your vehicle back demand a tip even when you already pay to park there. Second was the menu, I can understand the restaurant theme but the sides selection for the main dishes if you don't like asparagus, mushrooms or broccoli good luck (no mashed potatoes or even fries there). The aperitives were good (the quesadilla and the pork chicharron really good and tasty but, my main dish the steak was cook to order but it was warm not even hot and basically half of it was straight fat. There was no way I could eat that piece of fat and the side of mexican rice was horrible. I'm not the kind of person that complain on food establishment to get my food re-make (I seen too many videos about what happen to people food when they do that but when I pay the amount of money we did at that restaurant I definitely expect a better quality of food. Like I say not issues with the music/show, ambient or service but the food got a lot of improvement to do if you want to call yourself The Best Restaurant in Tulum. No where near BAK or Porfirios at Merida.

    The service and attention to detail at Macario was phenomenal. The food was great as well. The dessert was fun and they even got us free tequila shots to celebrate our anniversary. Definitely a place I would like go back in the future.

    This is NOT ‘Fine Dining’ by European standards at least. The staff were delightful if sometimes inappropriately attentive. Although our reservation was at 8pm, we were told the chef had not finished preparing our chosen starter (Duck Fritters) which looked excellent on the menu, and were then advised against our second choice of a carpaccio ‘because that fish is not good at this time of year’. Our third a fourth choices were a tuna plate, large tough chunks, and a smoked cheese - too big, tough and spoiled by a lavish quantity of honey on top. The chosen wine arrived but the wrong year, correct one not available, so had to reorder another choice. The sea bass main was woefully over cooked and unappetising- we both left most of it since the portion was also far too big. Top cap it all, having chosen one of two chocolate desserts, the lava cake, it arrived as a gateaux. We certainly didn’t leave hungry but the replacement wine at 1700 peso was the only thing I could recommend. Please don’t go with high expectations or if you want it to be quiet enough to talk to your dinner partners

    While there are plenty of options for a great dinner in Tulum, Macario has a unique combination of well-made regional Mexican cuisine and personalized mixology with a flowing, open-air boho-Tulum space that makes everything feel right. Their attention to the details of fun and their flexibility of spirit to create an excellent experience for each guest is genuine. From our 9 yr old, who just wanted to twirl a party sparkler and eat a churro with dulce de leche, to the vacationing French family two tables over who ordered the most amazing Mexican seafood dishes, EVERYONE, was smiling, swaying to the beat, and dancing when the mariachi band surprised us all. Memories were made. Suffice it to say, Macario will be on our revisit list next time we’re in Tulum.

    We were at Macario to celebrate my son’s engagement to his fiancé. After reading past reviews, I knew this was where we wanted to celebrate. We were a table of 15 so I contacted Alejandro prior to coming to make sure there were no issues with a large party. From the moment I walked into the restaurant, I felt like I was meeting an old friend. Alejandro and all the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The food was amazing, the ambiance absolutely perfect for a party. The noise level is loud but it seems that is the case with most restaurants in the hotel area. I highly recommend Macario and when we return to Tulum, we will be back!

    Fab experience , my food wasn’t exceptional but others in the party said there’s was. The added entertainment was fab and the vibe and energy of the place made it for me , fair to say Marcario Tulum knows how to party I just wish I was young again to enjoy it fully as I would have done. I have travelled a lot and lived in a lot of different places and I loved the vibe here hip yet unpretentious good combo , no regrets about going loved seeing it ❤️🇲🇽

    More of a bar/club than a restaurant. Service was very good but it felt like they just wanted you to spend more money. The food was average at best and ridiculously overpriced. If you are looking for good food, don't go here. If you want to hang out with "cool" people and party a bit, you'll probably enjoy it
