Another Excellent Dinner at Posada Marcherita

On a recent visit to Tulum, we returned to Posada Margherita for dinner. My wife and I both enjoyed well-prepared seafood dinners, excellent wine, and yummy tiramisu for dessert. This restaurant is right on the beach, for a scenic setting. Seating is a little cramped, and it's noisy, but well... read more

Posada Margherita is amazing. Beautiful decor, sexy beachfront seating, relaxing breeze. The fish marinated in sea water( I know how ridiculous that sounds) is ridiculously good. The pastas are al dente and made to order. The house appetizer of focaccia, pickled cauliflower and sharp cheese is such a delicious gesture and so fun to nibble with a great glass of... More

Cash Only, no C.C That being said, our overall experience was enjoyable. Food quality ranged from good to very good depending on the entree selected. The atmosphere and decor was fun and interesting. The menu variety is fair and limiting, especially for young kids. Not the best pace for parents with younger kids due to limited menu and cost. The... More

Posada Margharita offers an adorable, shabby chic interior. Casualty placed plants, candles and worn( ie. Recycled) wood lends a charming ambience. If only the food was equally delightful. Mind you, it's not bad- just very average. The seafood pasta special was the best item we tried. Shrimp with garlic- a staple of any seaside restaurant on the Med- was below... More

excellent fresh pasta, great tasting fish with mushrooms, forgettable shrimp dish, decent wine list - cute Italian couple working it hard - but look, it's like decor on a dime - the use of found objects really does work in he interior design (and it is a lovely spot), but you get the feeling that the low cost components carry...

I was there for dinner with friends. The place was packed but I liked that it was full of families and people just having a good time. While we waited a server came and explained to us the menu. Simple: 4 pastas, 2-3 Fishes, 3-4 shrimp dishes. We ordered and decided to split everything- that way we could taste more... More

Posada is a wonderful family place with amazing location and delicious home made Ligurian Italian food. The focaccia that is served complimentary with the drinks is the best focaccia I had outside Liguria
