Located right on the stunning Tulum beach, La Zebra is dedicated to fresh, delicious modern Mexican beach cuisine. And our bar features fresh juices, smoothies and a range of now famous cocktails (try our fresh sugar cane juice mojitos, or the La Zebra margarita with fresh pineapple juice and a hint of ginger). Sunday nights we have a salsa dance party with live Cuban salsa band....So come dance under the stars with us!

One of the best restaurants

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it did not disappoint! Great location, great setting (beachside), and the food is absolutely amazing. We had dinner there, and it's a must to eat here.

Decided to try La Zebra on the Sunday during our Tulum vacation as the TA write ups on the music and salsa dancing attracted us. And they were the main attraction. The live music and the dancing by both locals and others was great. Especially the music! Fantastic. The Empanadas Pre-hispánicas appetizer was very good. The Filete de Pescado en... More

We always at least make one stop here each trip for a few drinks and snacks. The new addition to the hotel blocks much of the breeze if you sit on the patio and it was very hot. The drinks were still good as was the guacamole.

Surprisingly good food. My wife and I stayed here and ate breakfast and lunch daily. Food was always top notch and healthy choices abound. Coffee was excellent, eggs served piping hot in the am. Lunch of tuna ceviche with avocado was my favorite. Also enjoyed empanadas and their beet salad. Servers and bar staff were all great and took time... More

I went with my husband and daughter to grab a bite to eat and hangout for the day and we really enjoyed their installations and food! Prices were reasonable and the beach and food were good. Next time I would like to try spend my vacation in their villas for sure! They looked great!
