Great breakfasts

Excellent good value breakfasts, some of the best we have had in Mexico. Huge portions and very well made. The staff are very friendly. A lovely place to eat on the beach.

The ambiance and the service were very good. It is kind of quiet until happy hour. If you like a palapa or shade, this is not your place. The space is open and the decor very in touch with the Caribbean.

We had guacamole, beers and sometimes even french fries. Reliable food and great service. Pasta dishes are pretty good, and the desserts hit the spot. The server is always attentive. Have even borrowed a book from them to read on the beach.

The lovely bartender, Rosie , from Retiro Maya, recommended La Cocina de Corina as one of the most authentic Mexican spots in Tulum - she was right! While Posada Margherita (the great Italian spot right next door) is always packed, La Cocina de Corina was empty. Nevertheless, the margaritas were awesome and the chicken fajitas spectacular (wonderful peppers included). Not... More

The view is awesome, the beach is intimate, the staff are charming and the menu and the food are amazing. You can drink great wine, margaritas, beers etc and eat wonderful Mexican and European dishes, hand-crafted, just a stone's throw from the beautiful azure Caribbean sea. You can even dine alfresco as the staff will bring your meal to your... More

We came here for lunch and to use their beach club facilities. The place was very welcoming and the staff friendly. It was designed shabby chic which was very cool. We had the ceviche and a few happy hour cocktails and they were yummy. A lovely quiet spot on the beach with a local feel.

Service was prompt and helpful, ocean view was beautiful, food was great! I had the shrimp fajitas which were like none I had ever had before, absolutely wonderful! My husband got steak kabobs, which he says were also very very good! We were very happy with our first stop in Tulum!

The guacamole for starters with the coldest corona around is a great way to sit for a while and just watch the clouds go by. Follow up with the catch of the day with a bit of garlic. Then sip a double expresso with no hurry.

We stayed for 8 days in Tulum town, and on the advice of our B&B owner came to relax at the beach at this wonderful spot! I am quite pleased it's not that easy to find...may it remain a little secret for a bit longer! The staff are just wonderful. Corina herself and the lovely Pas! Thank you so much,... More

Read all the reviews and wanted to try Cocina, but no taxi drivers knew where it was and Tulum's bizarre (non existant) address system did not help. If anyone knows a restarurant or hotel that is easily seen from the road and near Cocina please post that info.....
