This is purportedly one of the best restaurants on the strip. And it mostly lived up to that buzz. We are here on a quiet night. We have the al pastor dumplings and the huitlachoche ravioli for appetizers. The dumplings were juicy and flavorful and...the ravioli had smoke and spice and richness and were simply fantastic. For the main course we had the pork belly and the octopus. Although the pork belly was quite good, the octopus was simply a bit too tough. Unfortunately, at this point in culinary history, there’s no real excuse for tough octopus. And, although the flavors were excellent, the texture suffered. Equally problematic, the churros we had for dessert were simply fried too long, and were too dark, and served barely warm. By contrast, we had had a better churro in a food court Mexican joint in the Denver airport only 48 hours earlier, so when you suffer in comparison to that!... well… Our drinks were highly creative. The bottom line was that *most* of the meal was excellent, but Wild didn’t put forth their “A gem” for every course. I’d give this restaurant another try, but can’t put it on the top of my list given the two items that missed the mark.More

1st time here. Pleasantly impressed. Traditional Tulum feel. Amazing layout within the trees. Simple non confusing menu. Grilled Octopus was amazing. A truffle ravioli dish that I would go back again and again for. Avoid the crowds of many other places and visit this gem...on the south side of Tulum beach.More

Wild has a great creative kitchen with using fresh and local ingredients. The venue is romantic in a lush environment. We had a great prepared pork with all kind of local vegetables. The fish was excellent. This restaurant has good portions in a haute cuisine...style without being pretentiousMore

Crispy fried avocado was one of the best things I’ve ever had. Pork belly and octopus are also fantastic. The food is beautifully plated. Bonus points if you get Javier as your waiter – he’s fantastic too!

I went here for my 40th birthday and boy was it a treat! The plating, flavors and ingredients were next level. Lucas was our waiter and he was very attentive and had great recommendations. The ravioli was to die for. The mezcal shots were divine....We tried the grasshoppers, chocolate and other flavors. The experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend it. Pricey, but definitely worth it for an extraordinary experience.More

We had a fantastic time at Wild recently. Set on the beach road, this elegant restaurant is in a lush jungle garden with tables interspersed amongst the palms. The food matches the gorgeous setting: We had a delicious aguachile and flavorful dumplings al pastor. The...showstopper was the huitlacoche agnollotti: pasta parcels filled with a corn delicacy and served with a corn foam. It was a spectacular dish. Our waiter, Germán, was attentive without being obtrusive and his recommendations were spot on. The cocktails are worth the trip alone. Don't miss Wild set away from the noise of the other end of the strip. Very upscale and memorable evening.More

A few friends and I came to Tulum for my 30th bday. We stumbled across this restaurant while strolling through the beach on a Monday night. The food and the experience were absolutely amazing. Half way through our dinner, Karen (the owner) introduced herself and...proceeded to provide us with all the invaluable local insights (as well as some delicious drinks) that raised our trip from amazing to absolutely unforgettable. A true “can’t miss” location!More

This place is a gem. We happened to stumble upon this restaurant with amazing decor for outside seating. We had the octopus for main entree and ordered several appetizers. The fried avocado, ravioli and dumplings were a must have. The octopus was grilled and delicious....Service was outstanding, only thing is the menu is very limited and for picky eaters you might not find something.More

It doesn't have a kid menu. I'm sure a 10 year old would find something good. Didn't see a "special" but everything we saw was rather special. Just a great atmosphere place.
