We had shrimp tacos and a chicken burro and the food was superb. The service was also just as great. We had questions about the menu and all were answered graciously and in perfect English.

When we stay at La Zebra, we end up easting almost all of our meals at the La Zebra Mexican Kitchen. We've tried many other restaurants in Tulum, but keep coming back to La Zebra. Whether in the restaurant, on the deck, or in lounge chairs by the sea, it's consistently provided great food and atmosphere.

We had one night in Tulum, and It was recommended that we check out this place for dinner. Couldn't have been happier with the choice. Food was delicious, and the open air dining room was divine. Nice tequila selection too.

We were staying in Cancun. When we got to La Zebra decided to come back every single day. We drove 2:30 hrs just to get here. Amazing place. Food is great! The Langosta Burrito tastes super special!

The venue is really nice, with a view on the beach and lighted coconut trees. The food is very good too, as they have a ceviche bar with a great selection of ceviche. The cocktails are perfect. Try to go on sunday for dinner as they have a really cool salsa band playing. Totally recommended!

We stopped by in hope to find the Disco party mentioned here on TA, yet it is no more:( We did enjoy cocktails and the setting is very funky and fun. It is a great place to hang out and enjoy drinks and eat. This is on the best stitch of beach so guaranteed a great view!
