El concepto es excelente. Si nos basamos en calificar los alimentos y bebidas son de excelente calidad y muy buena presentación. Sumado a esto está el excelente servicio y la posibilidad de estar frente al mar

We tried taboo based on a recommendation by a frequent Tulum traveller who was familiar with some of our other preferred restaurants in the area.

Taboo is a beach club with a restaurant and has a lovely setting. Service was one of the most genuine and warm we experienced while in Tulum.

The proportions are huge - so a great place for groups to share. We ordered 3 starters and a dessert to share and we were stuffed!

Overall great food in a nice setting with good service - a safe option for anyone looking for a good experience.

The restaurant is just out of a magazine! Super posh and the ambience was perfect for our last night in Tulum. We had a late dinner here but wished we had came sooner to enjoy the beautiful beach beds and cabanas. Staff were so friendly and had great recommendations. It’s nice when the staff actually has knowledge about the food that is being served. The table starters were soooooooo yummy that we ate every last bite of it. Gespacio was perfect! It is pricey no doubt. Thanks for a great night, valet service was a bonus.

Although the restaurant is very nice, the music was awful for an romantic evening. The service was not good we had to tell another server to help us, because our actual server never came to get our main course order. The actual food was mixed experiences, for appetizer we had shrimp a and they were really good but for the main course we had the ribs on the bone and we could not eat it of how greasy it was. Overall our experience was not good. I would not recommend this restaurant

This is a slick tourist trap. Imported frozen seafood. Pushy wait staff. Very expensive. There is so much better authentic food in Tulum. This is designed to fleece the tourists. Very slick and beautiful. Go for a drink. Skip the food. There is way way better, nearby. Very disappointed we wasted a night here when there are places like Kitchen Table nearby.

Service surpassed my expectations.
Talk about a friendly staff.
Restaurant has the manpower to keep the service flowing. I didnt have to ask for anything they just popped up and offered and made sure we were good. Food took long to come but they offered on the house eats and that did the job. Food was incredibly delicious. Ambieance amazing. Overall experience just top notch.

En varios sitios de internet, leimos que Taboo es considerado el lugar #1 en Tulum. Debido a que estamos celebrando un cumpleaños decidimos elegirlo. Fue una excelente decisión. El lugar per sé es hermoso, con una propuesta de decoración original y adecuada al ambiente de playa. Tuvimos suerte que no había demasiado calor pues creo que al ser un lugar al descubierto, esto puede representar un problema. El menú es variado enfocado en lo mediterráneo. Los meseros son muy amables y nos advirtieron del tamaño generoso de los platillos para evitar que pidiéramos de más, cosa que se agradece pues en otros lugares con tal de vender, suelen servirte de más.
El ambiente es inmejorable con DJ en vivo y un violinista que toca hermoso.
Lo importante que es la comida es inmejorable pedimos ensalada, carne, mariscos y postre. Todo excelente. Definitivamente sí repetiría. Al final nos sorprendieron con un pastel para em festejado, con bengalas y toda la cosa.
No sacamos foto de todo pero fue una grata experiencia.

All around excellent experience dining at Taboo. The food was great, the service was top notch, and the ambiance was cool. They have a random donkey named Sancho that walks around. Was definitely a unique dining experience. They also brought my wife and I a desert with sparklers as we celebrated our honeymoon in Tulum. I highly recommend trying this place out. 5 stars

Taboo has great potential. The ambiance is very good and chill. The setting is great--they are on the beach but up a slight hill, which provides a great view of the ocean. Most importantly, they are on the beach side of the street meaning they get a very pleasant breeze to keep things cool. The food was good and comes in very large portions--too large actually. We would have ordered much less if we had only known... the waitress we had was, sadly, not very good. She didn't know the menu well and she wasn't very knowledgeable about their craft cocktail options. She was very inexperienced, but tried hard.
