Great dinner

We had an exceptional time at La Zebra. The food was as good as you will find and the ambiance was great too. We found the beachside bar more expensive than most. But the food and romantic setting was worth every penny. Highly recommend!

We went to La Zebra purely because it was raining and a lot of the roadside jungle restaurants were shut, reviews on TA were mixed so we weren't expecting much but we were pleasantly surprised. The negative reviews were mainly around very slow service and waiting ages for meals, however both of these things were just right on our visit.... More

Great dinner on a beautiful beach. The food was delightful, from the salsas to the vegetarian mole, and the drinks were absolutely some of the best in Tulum.

Had the beef burrito which was very good. Everything is made fresh which is great, even the deserts so be prepared to wait a while. Nice spot along the beach. Worth checking out if you're Tulum.

Sunday evening they offered free salsa lessons on the stage by the beach. The instructor was fun and informative. Beautiful beach location, energized atmosphere and nice young bartender there from Phoenix who entertained our 20 something kids while we learned to salsa!

We've been here 4 nights and we've been here twice for dinner. The ambiance is informal, under a thatched covered patio, and seats more than many of the restaurants around, you can see the ocean and beach frm inside and it's less windy than their seating on the beach. The first night both my husband and I had the fish... More

What an experience! It was very surreal, as if we were on a movie set or something. You must see the Tulum Ruins if you visit Riviera Maya. We went on our own without a tourguide. We just frolicked around in awe. I suggest going to Villa Pescadore, (which is about a 30 minute walk or u can take a... More

We stopped there for a drink at their cocktail bar while walking down the beach. The African American working the bar was rude and acted as if we were a hassle to him. I guess not everyone is happy living on a beach.. Cheer up man. You bartend on a beach in Tulum!
