Valentine's Day Dinner

Had the tasting menu for Valentine's Day. The food was good but not living up to the hype. The best dish was the truffle pasta that my husband had. Perhaps it was an off night with the prix fix menu.

We decided to visit Hechizo while in the Tulum area based on Trip Advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. It is a beautiful small place overlooking the beach. There are a few tables outside but the inside is also terrific with beautiful music and open windows. You don't need to sit outside to enjoy the Oceanside setting. And the food... More

I made the reservation for our family to celebrate my husbands birthday and it was a wonderful experience. My husband said everything from the atmosphere to the dining, the evening was consistently excellent. We had a large group and everyone's meal was beautiful, well executed and memorable. Stephan the chef came to our table to greet us and answer any... More

We went to Hechizo for my wife's birthday last week, and everything about this place was absolutely perfect. The food was gourmet, the service was fantastic, and our table was outside on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean. 2 entrees and several glasses of wine came to about $100 American, which I thought was more than reasonable for...

The chef/owner was trained in Europe but I think his family has owned this beautiful property his entire life. Beautiful dining room, tastefully decorated. The chef comes to each table to discuss the menu and answer questions. Don't miss the linguine with white truffles appetizer. It is small but packed with flavor. The beat and watercress salad had a ridiculously... More

I was going to wait until we got home from Tulum to write all my reviews for the week's vacation, but needed to get the word out on Hechizo. This was hands down the best meal we had in Tulum this week, and would compare to meals we've had at home in SF/Napa. A friend suggested we go, and we... More

We stayed in Tulum for 3 nights and so wish we had come here on our first night rather than the last. This is a top class restaurant with an amazingly friendly chef, my husband liked 2 of the main courses and he offered to do one as a starter which was over and above what most restaurants would do....

If Hechizo would be located in Europe it will be awarded with one or two Michelin stars, the main actor is the food, very good, original recipes, and they also offer excellent service and personal attention of the Chef and owner. The prices are according to the kind of place, but I think that are even cheaper than other places... More

Hechizo is an excellent restaurant. Our dinner was one of the best meals I've ever had in Tulum. Everything was carefully prepared and delicious. My only critique was the ambiance - it's an enclosed restaurant and was quite empty the night we were there. It was quiet and subdued - the lighting was very bright so it didn't feel as... More

The food selection is amazing, both local and overall contemporary cuisine. Nice wine list. Attentive gracious service. Save room for dessert, they are yummy. Beautiful beach environment.
