Description: Restaurant “La Siesta” is located in Tulum downtown, in the beautiful Riviera Maya. Surrounded by a luxuriant garden, La Siesta is a cozy and romantic place. The wide space can host big groups, organize birthdays and private parties as well business dinners and work groups.Our cuisine is simple but international, using only fresh ingredients and natural products and offering affordable prices. Our “pasta” is daily homemade: lasagna, fettuccine, ravioli and gnocchi. The fish and the local seafood (caught daily): lobsters, shrimps and a wide range of seafood that you can also taste in our famous “paella”.And the meat in the typical Mexican and Argentinean cuts, naturally grilled or tasted with the peculiar recipes of our menu.Last but not least the great pizza, obviously cooked in the wood stove. All the menu can match with our varied wine cellar, a refreshing beer or a special cocktail.We also offer the home delivery service from 1 pm to 11 pm; no extra charge in downtown and 20 pesos for each delivery for the hotels located on Tulum beach.

Best Italian food in Tulum. We have eaten here year after year. Great wine selection for the region. The brochette is to die for. Wear bug spray, lots of mosquitoes. Great atmosphere for supper off the main strip. Above average service for the region.

Good place to have a good meal, especially if you feel like eating pizza or pasta. It is downtown and prices are good.

Good pizza, good services and a very nice hand made pasta. I have decided to try the Fettuccine al Pesto with shrimps sauce. Very good option, although the taste could be strong.

We drove past this restaurant several times before stopping for a drink. A beautiful corner lot with lots of trees which provide privacy We went back the next night for dinner. We split a Very large Calzone and Caesar salad. Both were delicious. We will definately go back

Nice relaxed atmosphere just a block off the main drag. Plenty of shade, trees, space. We ordered some spinach raviolis and a mushroom and salami pizza. The raviolis were cooked to perfection and well spiced. I like a lot of raviolis and this plate came with just 8. Hey, maybe I eat too much but it seemed to me there... More

We stopped by to check this restaurant late afternoon and almost passed tiny because of the average atmosphere and lack of other patrons...usually a red flag for us. My kids saw pizza on the menu, so we decided to stay. The service was outstanding - friendly, very accommodating, attentive without being overbearing. Prices were more reasonable than the main strip... More

We stopped in for some pizza and sat in the garden. There was only one other table of people there, so it felt very empty, and they were playing terrible music. The service was also pretty bad, even for Tulum. However, the pizza was really good, and we really enjoyed the meal.

I liked the setting of this restaurant and the lovely lights at night. We both had pizza and they were delicious but I couldn't finish mine it was too big but it was very tasty, lovely thin crust base with a wide variety of toppings. Excellent service and the staff are very friendly.
