“Williamsburg vibe in Tulum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Great place, amazing tapas and cocktails. I felt like I was in a hip little bar around the block that the locals hang out in. Lots of europeans and locals..... indie rock music videos playing on a wall in the backyard. House music on the weekends. YAY love this place

“Great cocktails!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

Very cosy bar serving excellent tapas style food in a friendly atmosphere. Cocktails were delicious, especially the Mojito and the Moska Mule! Don't miss out the funky crazy bar top shaped like a huge colourful insect of some sort! The music was also excellent with some cool movies showing on a huge screen.

“Friendly and eccentric at the same time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

Tulum's most eccentric and fun nightclub/restaurant! A terrific mix of locals and travelers stop by for delicious tapas and inventive cocktails. Many nights have cult classic movies or awesome dj's! Be sure to chat with the owners; they are most amazing!

“Eye-candy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

We did a quick fly-by just to check this place out, and WOW! Such a cool space, filled with eye candy (meaning the decor, though the patrons and staff were just as hip and attractive as the interiors). Gorgeous, hip design, quirky murals, weird little objets d'art, and a young hip local crowd (and mostly gay, that night).

There are two main rooms inside that are small-ish and then a courtyard outside.

We didn't eat there, just had a quick drink on our way to dinner at a friend's place, but it was a complete surprise to find something so modern and quirky-chic in the pueblo (pueblo meaning the "town" of Tulum, located on the main highway).

If you love design, you MUST visit La Gran Mosca Verde while you're in Tulum.
