Beautiful place!

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...

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

We stopped by Puro Corazon one evening for dessert & cocktails and it was by far the best choice of our trip. We had these amazing sweet plantains w/ a sweet creme and wonderful cocktails prepared with fresh fruits. We lucked out as we were seated, a band had just started to set up. They sounded great and really added... More

My niece and her fiancé held their rehearsal dinner and meet/greet here. The staff was friendly and attentive, food was very good, and there was a very good band playing local music. They even played the jawbones! Fun evening!

We were brought in by the pollo mole on the menu and it was delicious. Just the right spice combinations and velvety texture in your mouth. The sweet potatoes that went along with it were creamy and sweet. Our first course was the ceviche, a must order. Ginger, almonds, carrots, fish all wrapped by thin slices of cucumber. I was...

This place doesn't really fit the bill if you're looking for authentic mexican food, but it has something that most every other place we visited seemed to lack: Super prompt and friendly service. In Tulum, you get used to having to ask for things like napkins or hot sauce. You sometimes have to ask your server twice for your glass... More
