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).

Awesome day on the beach!

Had an absolutely perfect day with friends at La Zebra. We had the pleasure of having Hebert as our beach waiter and he took great care of us throughout the day. He was so attentive to all our needs, keep the drinks flowing and we had nothing to do but enjoy the day, the beach and his great... read more

I dined at La Zebra with a group of 20 for my 50th birthday. This restaurant cannot handle a large group. Appetizers arrived after 90 minutes and at least 6 of us never even received our food. 45 minutes later entrees arrived and yet again several of us didn't get our entrees or received the wrong entree. The wait staff... More

I came here because I read reviews that the beach here was really nice. So we came here for lunch. There was seaweed on the beach that I didn't expect. The breeze and view from the patio was nice. The prices were US prices: $15 for a burger, $10 for a drink. Food was just ok. Sauces that came with... More

My mother and I came here one night in December 2014 when were in Tulum for a few short days (I'm definitely coming back). We made a reservation on their salsa night as we were down for some entertainment. Unfortunately, it poured rain that night, so the salsa dancing was limited to the latter end of our dinner, but we... More

We were hoping to end our week in Tulum on a high note and after scouring reviews we landed on La Zebra - food sounded interesting/local and it was on the beach, perfect. The restaurant was crowded and it was salsa night, but the hostess was on it - good sign, so we were hopeful. The good: The drinks were... More

We recently visited Tulum for a wedding and spent a few days in this idyllic town. La Zebra is a good spot for both dinner and lunch. The fish is very fresh and superbly cooked. But, don't be in a hurry. Service is leisurely but the staff was very attentive. My only criticism is that the management should tell diners... More

A lovely spacious restaurant on the beach front in Tulum. Although we hadn't reserved a table we were soon shown to one for the 6 of us. I do recommend booking prior to going as this was a Sunday night and with live music the restaurant is full. Through the windows of the restaurant you could see the beach and... More

The kitchen was clean and modern and the food generally good. The wedding dinner was excellent. Service seemed a little slow but that was because the food was prepared from scratch and I don't think Americans are used to that. The staff was very attentive and wanted to be sure we were happy with our meals.

Food is great and views and beach are some of the best in Tulum beach and they have parking which is hard to find. This place is not cheap but definitely worth spending a few hours here having a drink and lunch or just enjoying the beach with a drink. They have expanded a lot recently but the service was...

An awesome spot right on the beach with the ocean steps away. We had a beautiful table out on the deck. The staff was very accommodating. Disappointed that they were having trouble getting red wine? Only had one cabernet sauvignon in the restaurant so we opted to stick with beer. We both had the catch of the day which was... More
