Good variety of tapas

We had a great selection of tapas, including a selection of cheeses, tortilla, calamares, mussels, prawns and a salad, all of which were delicious. The lemon cheesecake, also delicious, rounded off a meal reminiscent of Spain. The prices are reasonable, and the service was friendly.

Gloria de Don Pepe is one of my favorite restaurants in Tulum. As a local, that means a lot! The dishes are delicious and very consistent. The paella takes 45 minutes to cook, and is well worth the wait. I and many friends are vegetarian, and although veg paella is definitely not a spanish classic, they do it SO well... More

Having had our fill of mexican food we were delighted to see that we could have spanish tapas. We ordered spanish omelette was really good and cooked like they do it in spain slightly running on the inside. The sausage and the eggplant and red pepper was also really moorish. We washed all that down with some ice cold beers... More

A true hidden gem here in Tulum. The staff was friendly and very personal. We had some summer wine which was very refreshing, the food was served promptly taking in consideration that was prepared as soon as we order it. Needless to say we are waiting to come back to Tulum so we can come here again! P.s. ask for... More

This was our second visit after a year and we were delighted to know that the quality if anything was better. The sausage I had to order twice because it was too good to stop with one. The eggplant and red pepper was also superb. Our two and half year old granddaughter ate all the food and enjoyed it. This... More

We did all the top restaurants down at the coast of Tulum but this restaurant was by far the pick off them all. Located in the township of Tulum this place has Sensational food at very reasonable prices. You've got to have the paella. It was brilliant. Great service from the husband and wife team who had some dishes for... More

Was at Gloria de Don Pepe's again with 6 friends, and after a gorgeous feast decided it's about time I wrote them a review! FANTASTIC food, intense flavors, and ideal for sharing food, wine and good company. We love their pinchos, kept ordering more and more. Soft succulent morsels of pork melting on your tongue, with a mystery sauce that... More

My huband and I frequented this great little neighborhood spot in February of 2014 and 2015. The second trip we brought along our 15-year old daughter and both years we went twice during or 10 day stay in Tulum. We love the authentic, friendly vibe and the camarones with garlic, the potatoe dish and just everything we tasted was consistantly... More
