Good Food, Great View

We stopped by here for a snack while walking down the beach. It's a good place to get out of the wind and relax with a beer. And they take credit cards!

This lovely beachside restaurant was recommended to us by one of our guides who told us about the lobster pizza. He wasn't wrong - it was absolutely delicious. What better way to spend a lazy lunch after a session of SUP Yoga; cold beer and pizza in the most lovely setting amongst the ever friendly Mexican waiters.

A few friends and I visited Tulum for the day and spent a few hours having beer and snacks at this very nice restaurant, which is also a beach club and hotel. The location is great and the view gorgeous. Very good choice!

First of all it's the only place I went to that had an authentic margarita. Just right! We had a pizza with shrimp and it was as good as any I've ever had- including in Italy. Everything was fresh and the thin crust baked in a real brick oven had the perfect texture and charred edges. You can eat on... More

This hotel was rated a 8.1/10 in 2013 and a 4.5/5 in 2014. However it was one of the worst hotels I've been to in years. First you have to know that some rooms have air cons and other don't. These rooms are given randomly. They charge the same price for both types of rooms too. When it comes to... More

The quality of the food here is really bad and the internet WiFi is non-functional. There are many other restaurant choices in Tulum and many are less expensive with higher quality. I recommend eating next door at the Mezzanine Hotel that has much better food and is a much nicer restaurant.

Cold beers with grille lobster, mojo the ajo shrimp, guacamole and the spiciest habanero salsa by the beach. Pure bliss!!!

a couple pesky bugs aside, the large sand filled dining room with brisk sea breeze was a nice accompaniment to our infamous seafood platter and pizza. (you're better off waiting until the lobsters are in season). good food, friendly staff. great beach views.

We stopped on a quick recommendation from our hotel as the best place to get an enormous plate of grilled lobster, tuna, grouper, scrimp, and calamari. You are sitting on a most pristine white powder beach, looking at a very blue sea. The food was great, the beer cold.
