This is one of our favorite restaurants during our annual winter life near Tulum. The tapas are delicious and fun to share, but recently we have ordered paella. Some in our group said it was better than paella they had had in Spain! One of the owners is from Barcelona. Have one or two tapas while the paella is prepared!

We were looking for something off the main street, something less crowded, something less noisy, and something different than the standard mexican fare which gets tiresome after a while. And then we noticed La Gloria. We ordered seafood paella for two. It took the full 30 minutes to prepare which is a good sign. The dish itself was ok, a... More

We tasted meatball, garlic pulpo, queso, egg plants & tortilla de patatas. Everything was perfect. Meatball & pulpo were our favourite dishes. Very friendly staff and excellent food. Great value too. Highly recommended!

This is my favorite restaurant in Tulum. It's a great place to get lots of quality food for cheaper than the restaurants on the main street. I usually get the meatballs and rice.

Can't say enough about this restaurant. Very friendly owners would do anything to make you comfortable. Great service (with genuine smiles) family friendly. Exceptional quality. Best calamari ever, my next fav. the veg terrine, beef in plum sauce outstanding. Tried most of the menu; Fantastic; away from the main street hawkers but very central. Don't miss it.
