    Excellent and unique food and service. Ambience is elegant and inviting. Music is at times just a tad loud for a business lunch, but perfect for a meal and drinks with friends and family. Would highly recommend for any occasion.

    4/5 stars is best I can give. Many items tried very good, if note excellent; however as a whole, found underwhelming. Stuck w/ many starters / tapa style to experience more items. Again, many solid but did not leave or go "Wow". Service average at best for associated price / value.

    Wonderful food! If you have spent any time in the Yucatán you know this place brings authentic flavors and well executed. Drinks are another extension of great flavors and Yucatán hospitality make this a very warm and enjoyable experience. You can get the habanero ash oil too which I love! Jose keep slaying the food, you will always have my business!

    Went during happy hour and tried the chips and guacamole and the brisket tacos. The food was okay, I wish the brisket tacos had a better sauce and the guacamole lacked flavor. The service was slow in the beginning but got a little better throughout our time. Ambience is amazing with a really nice bar.

    So this restaurant is a MUST! Incredible food ambiance and people. It’s hidden so it’s a bit tricky to get there but it’s worth it!!! The food! OMG! Incredible!!!! For those who are hay I’ve to southern Mexico this will take you back home. Americans, you’ll miss your chip and queso but this is not your TexMex. This is AUTHENTIC Mexican food. Btw food is based on Quintana Roo area, get sea food. That’s what the area is known for SEA FOOD! You won’t regret coming here at all. I wouldn’t be shock if I come back multiple times!

    It’s a must that I give Tulum a 5 star review. The artistic ambience leaves you in awe. It’s hard to articulate in words how polite, respectful, and pleasant our hostess and waiter were to us. It was my birthday and they made a beautiful memory for my wife and I. Last, but not at all least, the food had an art unique presentation along with a one of a kind exquisite taste that was very fairly priced for this experience.

    The food was pretty good and it was a unique environment. But, we were approached toward the end of our meal saying "we were getting close to the end of our reservation time" and they needed our table for a large party. One of our diners had just recently received her second drink of the evening (after being prompted to order one my the waiter), and we didn't appreciate feeling rushed. After about 5 minutes of two of us trying to finish our drinks, the manager approached again and said they would need to move us to the bar. We were never told about a time limit for dining, and the service was definitely not indicative of trying to move us along. The dining experience was fine up until being rushed out at the end of our meal. When we get our feedback to the manager, she was kind, saying she was new and trying to educate hosts etc. about telling diners about a time limit and that she would give us a discount. We had already paid (which I'm guessing she knew), so we just moved on. Just an odd way to end a dining experience.

    We apologize for this experience and hope you would return for an opportunity of a better one. In the future, our aim is to build on any and all feedback we receive. Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we can better serve our guests.

    We had a nice afternoon brunch. My date had the shrimp fettuccine meal and I had the salmon entree. Overall my salmon meal was very flavorful, for my date she didn’t like her meal at all due to the sauce. Completely understand it was her preference on the meal, so we decided to send it back. The server was very accommodating on switching the meal for another entree or dessert.

    The menu includes a wonderful variety of flavors to choose from and the drinks menu is wonderful with very knowledgeable staff to assist you. While the execution of the meals was overall flawless, there were two basic items they failed on. One dish had a side of rice. However, it was burnt. Not that you could see - but smell it and tase it. It is obvious the bottom of the rice pot was burned, and they tried to shortcut and hope no one would notice. The other was the fish. While it was cooked, it wasn't cook that it fell apart. We actually had to use a knife to cut some sections of the fish. I'd go back for the flavors and give the execution of the dishes another chance.

    Food was really good portions weren't big but nothing to complain about service started out on a good note appetizers and drinks came out really quickly the waiter was attentive polite and personable but our actual entrees took forever. Overall everything was good the place was beautiful and the food and drinks were really good my biggest complaint was the DJ. I was not looking for a club atmosphere when I was looking for places to have dinner. It was so loud we could barely order definitely not a lot of conversation going on at the table and the place was smaller than I expected and it was packed which didn't help the situation so if you're gonna have any kind of sensory issues be prepared for that. Overall I would absolutely revisit but probably much earlier on a weekday

    Super cool vibe, decor. Friendly staff. Delicious food. Loved the drink special. Loved the diversity of people…all ages out on the town the night we went. That said, we are on the older side and laughed that we probably couldn’t dine there with all our friends because they wouldn’t be able to hear any of the conversation. We will be going back for “date” nights!

    The restaurant was great. Our server was amazing. And the aesthetic’s pays for itself. However, I cannot get over how unbearably hot it was the whole time eating in the restaurant. I’m not sure if their AC was off but in the Texas heat. They definitely need to turn the air up a lbit higher.

    What happened to Tulum? The first time I dined was an awesome experience and great service. Their cochinita pivil took me back to my childhood. I decided to celebrate my wife’s birthday here and it was not the best of anything. The main issue was the temperature was unbearably hot. Me and my party were physically sweating. The drinks were then served sporadically and We were not able to toast. Thankfully the grilled octopus and cold ceviche were excellent. It was a shame because I felt like I was at a hole in the wall family owned Mexican restaurant in oak Cliff. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s just that they try to cut corners where they can, such as the a/c. So I felt like I wasn’t getting my value. I paid and we left to enjoy cocktails and dessert somewhere else. It definitely felt like tulum is heading down hill.
