“Everything was AMAZING... except the price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Everything about this place was amazing. Most of the food including the pastas are all hand made, and the drinks/smoothies were unbelievably great. Everything tasted excellent; we had the "Aqua Pazza" and "Fettuccine a la Pomodoro" which were both quite tasty. The bread plates with cauliflower and cheese appetizers were also great. The view towards the beach and sea is breath taking, and walking along the shore was very enjoyable. The staff was very nice, and we had no issues.

The only down side to this place, and I mean THE ONLY down side, was the price. The smoothies can be quite expensive, and for a meal of 11 people, the check came out to around $4,500 pesos, or around $382 dollars.

“Best Italian outside Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Fresh pasta is unbeatable. We had a late lunch this July here at Margerita. The food is incredible. Pasta is made fresh and was perfect. I had the special - combination of pasta with lobster and shrimp. Simply delicious. My wife had the pasta with tomato sauce and, though quite a simple dish, was delicious. Recommend 100%!!

“Candlelit dinner, intimate, beach view, outstanding food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Posada Margherita is an Italian themed restaurant on the beach side of the Tulum-Sian Ka'an road. If you're looking for an elegantly designed, open air restaurant with an intimate atmosphere and superb food, go here.

We visited Posada Margherita on a warm June evening, accompanied by friends who'd recommended it. As we walked up the pathway to the restaurant, we were greeted by hand-crafted candles, more of which lit the tables. The weathered wood and romantic theme of the restaurant, along with the relaxed service and sound of waves nearby, was perfect for our quiet evening meal.

Our order was accompanied by a complimentary appetizer of cheese, bread and vegetables - a nice surprise and delicious too. We had one of our most memorable evenings and will be back!

“Excellent Food, Great Ambience, We Return Year After Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

My wife and I usually vacation in the area (Akumal) at least once a year. We found out about Posada in 2011 through Tripadvisor. We just returned from a 15 day stay and we went to Posada three times for dinner. We especially like how the staff remembers us each year when we return. The head manager/waiter at night is really a nice guy and quite attentive to your needs...I can't remember his name at this time.

We talked about why we keep on returning each year and came up with the following: The food is consistently good, the food is fresh, the food is prepared well and tasty, the staff is attentive, and the location and ambience is intimate and relaxing.

We have never had a bad meal or experience at the restaurant. It is more expensive than a stand on the street in the pueblo, but we have found their prices to be consistent with other restaurants along the Tulum beach road. We also really enjoy the appetizer board that they present to you before your meal. It is just enough to spark your craving for more and not so big that you will spoil your main course.

This is a great restaurant. Go try it, just don't tell too many people about it!

“2 dinners and a breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

We were staying here, and wanted to give the restaurant a try. I'd seen some less than stellar reviews, and have finally decided that perhaps there are some people that just like to be unhappy. This was an amazing meal, from start to finish!
Dinner starts with homemade bread - the most delicious, melt in your mouth bread you've ever had. We had a fish and a pasta dish and both were beyond excellent. We enjoyed it so much we dined here a second time, and we rarely eat at the same place twice in our travels. The atmosphere, funky vibe, and great views really rounded out the experience. I am still dreaming of that fish!!
The breakfast is worth mentioning as well. Lovely fresh fruit, lots of choices. You won't be disappointed here!
