Quaint, tasty, and great service!

Great atmosphere and try the daily "catch" whether it's fish or shrimp, simply awesome. As well, the Chocovino Steak was scrumptious!! P.S. If you like hooka/shisha, they have this available as well. Try the Kiwi tobacco!

Recommend the fish or seafood that is grilled up front. Very fresh. For a place having a "wine bar" a limited selection.

We loved this little jungle side restaurant! So much so we went back twice. Both times they had live music which was fun while enjoying dinner. All the food was delicious- beef tacos, caribbean fish in pineapple sauce, guacamole with pineapple were some of the dishes we tried. So flavourful and generous portions. The cocktails were also delicious- my favourite... More

The restaurant atmosphere is pretty standard for Tulum. They advertised live music but it was already done when we arrived at 8 PM. The Catch of the Day was very expensive and they said it was a type of Red Snapper - it completely lacked flavour so it was probably Grouper - rip off. The service started out solid but... More

Nice restaurant & bar. We didn't eat there because it was last night of our vacation when we found this gem. Margaritas are amazing, best I ever had! Authentic local band is playing there too. We will be back! Thank you for your hospitality.

We had a lunch and a dinner here. There was entertainment with dinner. I'm afraid I don't remember what we had to eat, but all the food was very good, and I love the atmosphere -- both lush and laid back -- and service. his place is a winner.

We loved the mixed grill. We went on a Wednesday night and they had live flamenco. The waitress was very attentive, the food was absolutely delicious and the price is acceptable, a little on the steep side but I can't complain being on vacation and having seafood near the beach... I'd definitely eat there again.

This restaurant is across from hotel Punta Piedra at the beach in Tulum. Nicely lighted, indoor/outdoor feel. Food is fresh with emphasis on seafood. I loved the sesame crusted shrimp and the grilled fish with passion fruit salsa. The salads were fresh and good. Had a nice breakfast here too. They have live music some nights, kind of World music... More

Puro Corazon offer small musical acts most nights. Casual vibe and unique decorations with a friendly staff. Good drinks: no cutting back on booze like other places. They also offer lots of beer including a few local "craft" IPA beers from Playa del Carmen. These brews are very east coast style with heavy malt taste and little hops that us... More
