Chic and delicious and worthy of the hype

We loved this place. It was if they transported Scarpetta's from NYC or Las Vegas, made it bohemian, and plopped it down on the beach in Tulum. The vibe was as good as the food. We got there at 7:30 and easily found a table. By 8:30, they were bustling, but I don't think there was ever a wait... read more

Went here because of all the good reviews. What a joke this place. 30 euro's for a pasta that isn't even close to anything Italian. The fish I ordered tasted like something from the frozen food department in the supermarket. On top of that we had a terrible waiter - basically saying no to each and every request we had.... More

Since Tulum didnt have any Italian Restaurants, this one is ofc very popular. But not even close to some of the best italian food We have eaten before. The food was good, but nothing special. Though the location and enviroment were really nice and cosy, Next to the beach. It was kind of a loud restaurant with lots of people,... More

Delicious food! We stumbled into this little paradise and had an amazing lunch. The pasta is a real treat and we loved their sake, basil cocktails, and tiramisu! (yes we walked home with food babies) This restaurant was my favorite in Tulum. We came a couple of times. The atmosphere is special. And so many places in Tulum are, but... More

Had late luch at posada M. The place itself has a great beach style decoration with lots of wood, candles, and sea view. Looks like a italian beach vila. Staff is very friendly and approach the table to present you the menu in a square rock, very original. They take a seat and chat with you while explanning the dishes.... More

Posada Magherita has a wonderful restaurant with Ocean view. Very romantic but also super friendly. The Menu was small, but all the options were very good. The pasta with shrimp was elected by our group (of 6) as one of the best in our lives. We celebrated a friends birthday with a delicious Tiramissu and the staff came with candles.... More

We loved this place so much we ate here twice during our stay in Tulum. The food is authentic Italian. The pasta is made fresh to order and the vegetables and seafood are all fresh. Our favorites were the margherita pasta, the bread plate (off the menu order), and the vegetable pasta. The walkway to the restaurant is through a... More

Best to go at lunch time, fills up at night very quickly. Small menu but everything is delicious, the salads as well as their pastas. Make it a point to stay for dessert and coffee.

Everything about this place was pretty perfect but for one exception: service. The room and the food, were amazing, but the service was a bit indifferent and at one point, our waiter was downright dismissive. But the fish poached in seawater and the super fresh pasta brought us back a second time, regardless.

Attentive staff, incredible fresh pasta & fish - sitting by the seashore with the fresh breeze. Small menu but every dish is exceptional.
