“Best margharitas I've EVER had, great food and AMAZING service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

we were staying in Tulum for 5 nights and came here on the 2nd night, we were tempted in by the 2 for 1 cocktails advert outside visible from the beach and were blown away by the quality of them with such great ingredients and they were only 80 pesos for the two (thats SO cheap!), that night we didn't have a lot of small change so she couldn't change it for us but was so trusting that she took most of our payment and had the promise that we would return on good faith with the rest another night.

Well - we returned every single night after that, sometimes just for cocktails but we ate there twice as well and I had my first experience of lobster (with pasta) and I loved it! The lady serving (not sure if it's corina or not?) was so friendly and approachable and while there were only a couple of people in there each time, the place has such a lovely vibe that we had to keep coming back again and again - plus as I said, the cocktails were delicious!

On the 2 for 1 cocktail menu you can choose from daquiris, margharitas, mojitos and more - i tried all 3 of these and just loved them all. Also served lovely tapas with them too.

This place is right down the beach in this lovely boho area and fits in like a dream, it's a great place to do exactly what we did - stop by, have a drink, have dinner and then come back repeatedly!

If I ever happen to be in the area again I would go out of my way to pop in again.

“Wonderful place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We loved walking along Tulum beach to Corinas for our evening cocktails! She makes amazing Mojitos and Margaritas and the food was wonderful too.
The place is quiet, with a view out to the see, the perfect place to relax.

Outstanding food, drinks, desserts, location...can't say much more. Small menu, but the items on it rock.

“Nice place to try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Maybe is not the best place in town but it is good enough to give it a try we went for seafood and things were very good. Service was excellent and maybe a little slow but that comes with the town things are slower here

“Charming and Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This is a very pretty open-air restaurant with good food at (for Tulum beach) reasonable prices. The kitchen is presided over by the talented Corina, from Argentina, but she has trained the staff quite well to turn out good-quality food when she's not around. House-made fettuccini and flavorful pesto (basil or parsley) are exceptionable, and all our meals were good to excellent. Part of the pleasure of dining here is the charming decor, casually pleasing.
