A Most Amazing Experience

We went to Hechizo in May 2014 after years of missing their open dates. The experience, from the ambience to the food to the service was impeccable. Chef and co-owner Stefan Schober visited our table more than once and was friendly and very informative regarding each dish. This was for my wife... read more

What a special place! We had a group of 6 and sat on their gorgeous outdoor patio to enjoy the sea view and breeze. All the staff was extremely attentive and friendly; most of all we love that Chef Stefan spent time with us chatting and explaining the menu. We all had the prix fixe which was a great value...

High-end but in a relaxed way - excellent food and service and beautiful view - not inexpensive, but worth the price

Last year while staying in Akumal we made the joinery twice to savor one the best dining experience of my life. Every dish was exquisite. Cheif Stephan take great pride in every aspect of your visit. I am a foodie who has traveled the world seeking out great food and dining experiences. Hechizo is at the top of my list.... More

Just wrapping up an excellent meal outside under the stars but the rolling surf. This setting would be reason enough to return but it was the excellent service and food that will bring us back. Be sure to order the fetuccini with truffle and the frozen nougat dessert. Yum!! Chef Stefan came out to greet which was a special treat.... More

We had heard that this restaurant was a must go to for Tulum. The restaurant was great, the chef/Owner was very accomodating with the kids meals. The menu was a lot of fresh fish and lobster. I would recommend this place, I would have to say that I think this place was a tad expensive

The most gourmet it gets on the beach. Austrian Chef Stefan and Korean wife have been running it for years. If you get sick of Mexican food and want more continental, definitely don't miss this place. The chef will personally take your order and discuss options on the menu, which felt very personal.  Food was exceptional. The setting of the... More

We did the Prix Fixe. Amazing. We were all experienced diners and thought the food and experience was great. Get there early to enjoy drinks outside at the fabulous view. Might want to expand their wine list a bit, but still had a good bottle.

There is a real charm to Hechizo that I have not seen in other restaurants. The dining room is open and spacious, and in the evening you can sit inside and look out to the ocean which is amazing. The food quality was superb, I went with my girlfriend who had scallops followed by cod, I had salmon followed by... More
