We really enjoyed the Spanish food in this lovely little place run by a friendly Catalan owner. The food was high quality and delicious, and relatively inexpensive.

A wonderful little find - We were looking for something light to finish up the day with, and this place was great. Tapas were very tasty, service was great and it was priced reasonably. It is a very small place and it falls more under the rustic side of things, but that is definitely part of the charm.

We happened upon this restaurant in Tulum and had a great lunch, couscous salad and an Italian salad. The Jamaica juice was amazing too. So for dinner go next day we went back and had an amazing paella that reminded us of Valencia earlier on our travels. The best bit was fighting over the charred bits on the bottom of... More

Me and my girlfriend visited Don Pepe on the last night of our stay in Tulum. We chose the place since we are big fan of tapas and also because we have read ALOT of positive reviews. The restaurant is owned by an old couple which people tends to describe as welcoming and overall nice. Unfortunately we saw none of... More

We go to Tulum many times a year and we always have Gloria and Don Pepe as a must go place on our list. It is very small, in town and maybe hard to find off the main drag but I has the best tapas and paella around. There will be no fancy NYT write ups on this place that... More

Stopped here at random. Restaurant is one block from the main road in the town. Tried the potatoes and calamari with aioli sauce, and it was delicious! Even better was the mixed paella dish we had. It is enough for two people. Keep in mind you do need to order the paella dishes for 2 people or more, and each... More

This place offers tapas and great looking paellas. The ability to have some small tapa dishes to share makes the eating experience more interesting. The flavours were original and the food delectable. Good place with character, slightly off the beaten path but nicely located for Tulum. Wine by the glass was a Spanish selection and not only well priced but... More

We went as a family of six and a little toddler. The setting was idillic on the street and the service was excellent. The food very authentic and tasty. The wines were also surprisingly good. It was a great experience. We ordered the sausage twice. The fish cooked wrapped in "holy leaf" was truly flavorful and tasty. The price was... More
