Great and cool high-end restaurant

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

If this restaurant was in any other part of the world it would've be an award winning and Michelin star rated restaurant. Stefan and his group of tireless workers really do make an excellent culinary experience into an absolute stunner!! All the dishes we ordered were perfectly cooked and Stefan himself walks around the restaurant talking to the patrons and... More

We were nervous that we wouldn't find Hechizo--it is the a the end of the hotel strip in Tulum. It was worth the drive however. Gorgeous setting on the water. We were at a table inside--but since we were by one of the large open windows, we felt like we were on the beach. By Tulum standards, the restaurant was... More

My wife and I had an excellent meal at Hechizo a few nights ago. We opted for the fixed price menu, and all of the plates were delicious and as advertised. The best dish was probably the truffle pasta -- the truffle was definitely prominent but not overpowering. The ice cream (with a chocolate cake) was also quite delicious. The... More
