It will make you feel fun!

Le Zebra is just fun. Period. The setting is gorgeous, it is laid back, and the service is great... so you may have a few margaritas! The snacks and ceviche were great and the music was good. Everyone there was having a good time and it was just fun. Start to finish fun!

We went here because it had such high reviews. We got to the restaurant around 8, and it seemed pretty quiet. I had some fish with potatoes and a tomato sauce. Of the sauce I'll say that someone worked very hard to make something that ended up tasting just like ketchup. My wife had some fish with coconut rice. Everything... More

We spend a nice day on the beach and had a great late lunch here during our stay in Tulum. It was the best of the beaches we visited and the whole hotel area and the restaurant too was clean, stylish and kind of artist. We liked it a lot for a day visit, but staying at the hotel would... More

We went on a Sunday evening when there was a great live salsa band and a beachside dance floor. The band played until about 10pm. People of all ages and nationalities were out dancing. The food is good, but the live music made the evening.

We've been staying 2 weeks in Tulum next to la zebra and went for dinner expecting perfect food and service as often mentioned in the web. What we found was a very unprofessional service with an strange attitude. What happened? My wife ordered just a main course and myself a starter with an main course. My wife got the main... More

The atmosphere is fun, lively, kid-friendly, and the live music and free anyone can join in Salsa Dancing lessons are awesome. Our six year old son joined in while we danced. There is even a little playground in the sand adjacent to the restaurant. Oh, and of course I forgot to mention the most important thing-the food & service are... More

My Wife and I stayed about three houses down from here and ate here almost every lunch. Excellent ceviche and salsa's. Pitchers of margharita's hit the spot. and sitting, perched on their outside patio watching the waves roll in can't be beat. also the most professional and friendly service we encountered.

We absolutely loved our evening at La Zebra, it was the highlight of our trip. The drinks were fantastic, very inventive and not overly sweet like almost everywhere else. The open-air restaurant and decks are spectacular with great ocean and beach views and that wonderful Tulum breeze. We had empanadas, wonderful ceviche with squid ink, a delicious shrimp stuffed pepper,... More

The setting for meals is just wonderful. The ambiance is great and the attention to detail in the space makes the feeling special. However, the service is not anything to write home about. The food may have been more tasty if it had been served at the right temperature but no it wasn't even warm, not close.... so that really... More
