Our group stayed in Tulum for five nights and we ate here twice. I enjoyed the barbacoa the first time, which was very good, and the next time I had the coconut fish, which was incredible. We also tried a ceviche for the table and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also had three little ones with us and while they did... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant after checking out the Mayan Ruins in Tulum. We saw a recommendation on Trip Advisor and went with it! Totally worth the 15 minute cab ride (which wasn't terribly expensive). We sat on the beach and it was so relaxing and peaceful. We were staying in Playa del Carmen where the beach is... More

We had dinner at La Zebra on "Salsa Night"! They had a live Salsa Band with tourists and locals dancing on a deck on the beach...it was very cool! Had fresh Grouper for dinner...it was very spicy and very good. The Mayan tortillas were amazing! Service was good as well.

Le Zebra restaurant is located on the sea side in Tulum, where most of the eco hotels and restaurants are. The property is quite large and kid friendly. On Sunday night when we were there, there was a salsa instruction and band happening, which made for a festive atmosphere. The food is delicious and the specialty cocktails are also quite... More

All of the food was great and compared to neighboring restaurants was reasonably priced. I loved the ceviche, shrimp tacos, and the breakfast! Try the reefer madness smoothie and huevos rancheros. Stay way from the Papaya Margarita (in my opinion), but the pina colada was delicoius! Great location too!!

Don't get me wrong this is still a beautiful, ocean front location. They still offer salsa lessons and live music on Sunday which is fun. The drink prices went way up. The menu has changed and prices went way up. It was impossible to contact them by phone to make reservations. When we arrived 60% of the tables were empty... More

La Zebra is pretty far south on the beach road in Tulum. But its definitely worth it to go there. The staff are very friendly and laid-back. While there's a little sign saying you need to spend $500 pesos to use their shaded lounges, they don't hassle you at all. And while the food is kind of expensive, its more... More

Typical deck dining with nice beach in view but we were here in May so it was WINDY which I don't think is so conducive to eating. "Inside" (it is all open-air) cannot be easily protected from the wind, so it was VERY BREEZY. Although there were only a few diners it took a LONG time for our food to... More

Stayed in more remote and private guest house yet found our late afternoon wandering would land us here almost every day. Beautiful stretch of beach with lounge seating, excellent food and drinks. Friendly and attentive service. The perfect spot to spend a few hours in complete appreciation of your vacation experience.

The Salsa band and the people dancing the Salsa were great entertainment. It was the consensus of our eleven diners that the dinner was the best we had on Tulum's restaurant row on the beach road. the short ribs and the lamb shank were excellent. Both the classic white fish ceviche and the octopus ceviche were excellent and the salsa... More
