Amazing food and hospitality from a gorgeous friendly couple

Wow, what an evening. Gloria is an incredible host and guided us through the menu perfectly. The paella was an absolute standout and clearly one of the best meals ive had in mexico. Also a fantastic sangria.

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

After spending mucho $$$ at Posada Margerita the night before we were even more impressed at the quality and flavor of the made to order paella with shrimp, clams, mussels and calamari at de Don Pepe. It was the best meal we had on our vacation and only set us back $20 - can't beat that!!!

We had a nice dinner here during our stay in Tulum. Tapas were good, tinto de verano cold and service fast and friendly. There were no free tables when we arrived, but they just arrange one table and chairs from the storage for us to the pavement, that was very nice of them. The reason why it is not five... More

What an unbelievable place... The owners are such a sweet couple, always greeting us with warm hugs and gorgeous bottles of Rioja. The food was absolutely amazing, many many tapas to try (loved the meatballs and calamari), their paellas were scrumptious, and my favourite thing is their authentic spanish fideua (pasta with seafood in squid ink) Mmmmm I can almost...
