La Vita e Bella gets better every time I visit! This is the most beautiful stretch of beach in Tulum. This is where you want to go your first day, and stay all day. Find your beach chair and umbrella, order drinks, lunch, dinner and watch the sun go down. The food is wonderful, and being an Italian American, I... More

I personally think this restaurant is located on the most beautiful beach in the Yucatan. But since the last time I've come, they've upscaled a bit (only a bit, the floor is still sand) and added a whole bunch of palapas that obscure the view from the tables. The service is mediocre, but typical for the region and besides there... More

The service was really slow and it took a really long time til the waitress took our order. They were Non-flexible when we wanted to add whipped cream to the hot coco, it wasnt possible even though they had cream. The food was tasteless and had a really special after taste. The location was really good though. / Lina

This is a beautiful spot to eat lunch and soak up beach vibes. However, the service wasn't great. We were seated before two other 4-top tables. We ordered drinks, then our food, pretty typical at this point. Then after about 25 minutes the tables (both 4 tops) were served lunch. We still had not received our 1st course. Politely, we...

Our hotel in Playa recommended La Vita e Bella for a Tulum beach visit and we LOVED it! Such a peaceful oasis! Benjamin was patient with us as we selected 2 lounge chairs and a thatched umbrella. He recommended the 5 bucket of beer and we were thrilled. It was such a lovely experience, we went back the next day.... More

This is an underrated Tulum beachfront restaurant IMO, perhaps not as well known as others because it is in the north beach area. Superior food, lovely toes in the sand beach-front ambiance, good service, and yes, you pay more than you would pay for good Italian in the pueblo, but definitely worth it for the beautiful, quiet and romantic setting....

Great spot, really all round good cuisine. The risotto is a real pleasure, the pizzas are worthwhile as well. Its a tad expensive for the region but the quality of the food makes it a good deal. The view at sunset is fantastic

Yes, the view is gorgeous. It's pretty laid back, with the sand floor and beach decor. However, when we realized that driving into town would save us about $40 USD, we decided never again! We had a breakfast there one morning. We shared a burrito and each had 2 coffees with Kahula. Our bill was $60! We were stunned and... More

We stop here after visiting the ruins of Tulum. The service was really good and the pizza absolutely delicious. This is one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been, and this place helped to make this visit even better
