The food was pretty good. There were a few flaws that were not asked about. The bartender needs work, and to light a fire... The staff is sweet. It has potential.

Good food, great atmosphere and strong cocktails. Family from Monterrey so I can say the Mexican food was authentic with a very small shack of their own spices. Food will satisfy you.

This was my first visit to Tulum, it certainly will not be the last! I had brunch on Sunday.
Chef Meza has created a Fantastic menu. You should definitely try the Bloody Mary made with tomatillo juice.
That’s right, tomatillo juice made fresh by Chef. Delicious. And the food........WOW!!. I can hardly wait to come in for dinner.

So the place is gorgeous! If you ever been to Tulum then you differently can agree that it is like a mini Tulum restaurant. Drinks are amazing!! Staff is friendly and great! Butttttttttttttttttttttt the portion size of food is ridiculous! We had 2 drinks a piece, shared a salad, and both had entrees with dessert and we still had to get food afterwards! We aren’t greedy or over eaters either! We got like a table spoon for side. The tiniest heart of romaine! This isn’t a cheap place either. Idk why it was really loud too. I am not if we will return! You definitely have to give people their money’s worth! 🤬 also still seemed like a lot of people for 50% capacity

Good strong drinks. Food is nothing out of this world. You would think the food would be amazing for the price, but it was just an ok experience. The establishment itself is beautiful, which is what attracts people to the location. Overall, the food was a 6 and the drinks 8.

This was my second time dining at restaurant. This time I decided to come for anniversaries dinner. The waitress didn’t do a great a job at explaining what was being ordered and how it was cooked. Example we asked about catch of the day and she said it was a whole fish and she really didn’t understand what the definition of whole fish was. Drinks are good ....we ordered lamb chops and for the price I felt like they could have been cooked better.

This was my first time to visit Tulum. We were celebrating a friend's birthday, and were able to experience Tulum's first brunch. The staff was very accommodating as we brought a cake, and they brought it out to the birthday girl after we finished brunch. I was impressed that the chef came to our table to explain the menu and ask if we had any questions. The cocktails were inventive and the food was delicious! A great first experience at Tulum and will definitely come back!

Tulum is a refreshing, contemporary take on Mexican cuisine. The dish that was the most surprising and flavorful was the octopus. Chef José made sure to pay a visit with each patron, and I saw him clear a table of two. It was a great experience, and we plan to go back!
