Undoubtedly the best Tapas in Tulum

We have a habit of eating here on our first night and our last night and nights in between every year. So this year, 3 visits to La Gloria de Don Pepe, wish we had more time to go again and again... However, we forgot that they close on a Monday, then the next night we were too late as... read 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...

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
