Highly Recommended for using your Al a Carte Visits...

We visited Le Gourmet on our 2nd night at Grand Bahia Principe (Tulum Hotel)... It was outstanding... Nothing more to say other than we returned for a 2nd of our Al a Carte Visits because it was that good & 2nd time round it was, & it'd have been hard to top, but even better...

As with some of the other reviewers, we thought that this restaurant was the best that we had eaten in at the Bahia Principe resort. The service was excellent, Alexander was notable in his service level, and the food was top drawer. Don't know if this is meant to be the best restaurant in the area, but it will take... More

Staff very attentive, food good, seems small portions but we all left full. You need a good 90 minutes for the meal.

Nice dining experience here. Tranquil environment, good food with reasonable choices on each menu course. I had the filet mignon, which was excellent. Service was first class. Truly a fine dining establishment. Wish we had the chance to revisit during our stay.

When I asked which was a good restaurant to have a steak I was advised this one. What great advice. Lovely setting; attentive and friendly staff with great food. It was all free but I would have willingly paid. Best a la carte in Coba.

Le Gourmet is one of the a la carte restaurants at Grand Bahia and was most enjoyable. Compared with Don Pablo, it has a slightly less formal, and certainly less crowded, feel allowing relaxed dining whilst sampling a menu the equal of any other on the resort. The service is attentive but not intrusive and for me it struck the... More

There were no Appetizers and Desserts Buffet, like El Pescador, Tequila and Frutos del Mar Restaurants, but the food was delectable, truly French, and the dessert and Mexican coffee were excellent. Service and ambiance were excellent. My wife and I, coming from Montreal, we had a great time,! Recommended, especially to weight watchers and romantic ladies.

Having stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe resort, we wanted to check out the Le Gourmet restaurant. Unfortunately, I think we chose a bad night for it. We were booked for 7.30pm and arrived about 15 mins before. I kid you not, we did not leave until after 10pm. My partner and I are usually very quick when we go... More
