A charming place, though it can be crowded; the food is fresh and excellent, the service could be more attentive. Cash only, but they have an ATM in the premises, very convenient!!!

There are few words that can ultimately describe the meal that we had here. To start, the atmosphere of the restaurant is great. The ambiance is private, and intimate. The services was great, very attentive. Then the food came. I don't believe a word was uttered during our meal other than how delicious the food was. The fish my wife... More

Seriously, this may have been the best Italian food we have ever had. My husband is a "foodie" and not only did he love it, but we even went back again for lunch! The restaurant itself, looks like something out of Pottery Barn. it's absolutely beautiful, open to the ocean breeze.

Out of the four nights we spent in Tulum, we ended up eating here three of the four nights (embarrassing, maybe. but it was that great!). The ambiance is like nothing else I've experienced. Ocean views, and a cute decor of weathered doors and windows in muted pastels. It's cute beyond words. Everything is delicious, but the fish dish cooked... More

location is nice, we could call it in Italy a "trattoria" simple restaurant with no fancy service but good food.Pasta homemade was really good but almost 20 pound for it is too much, even at the shard in London is cheaper.

I love this restaurant and the owner. He never changes and neither does the menu and food quality. It can be pricy and they only take cash, but the ambiance is quite nice and the pasta is freshly homemade. We go here twice when we stay longer than one week in Tulum. Always satisfied!

We had a wonderful meal at Posada Margherita - we had the spinach spaghetti with shrimp, zucchini and pine nuts and the snapper with rice and potatoes. The fish was extremely tender and delicious, and the spaghetti dish was well balanced and yummy. Absolutely no complaints on that front! We also ordered some white wine with our meal, which was...

Gorgeous setting, good Italian wine, delicious and simple food. Dinners here were easily the best part of our trip to Tulum! Loved the presence of two old doggies hanging around on the beach near the tables, too. Totally mellow and authentic.

This place was great, out group of 16 showed up with no prior announcement and we were accommodated pretty quickly. Although you did not come to Mexico to eat Italian food, the quality of the food here is higher than many places in Italy. We tried a bit of everything, pasta and the fish. In particular the aquapazza was one... More

Super fresh food, great location. It was a little expensive and note that it is cash only. The ambience was ideal and the location perfect.
