We love this place. Non pretentious, great tapas and great service by the owner. Try the Jamon Serrano and accompany it with a glass wine. Everything we have tried is great.

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and fancied a break from Mexican / Italian. It is a real treat, tasty fresh dishes and great service. An earlier review that we read mentioned the waitress and how welcoming she is, we can only echo this - she is fantastic and so friendly. The food is authenticity Spanish and as good... More

We have been twice on our trip and may even go back for paella. Our favourites were the meat balls in a delicious tomato sauce, the garlic chicken, the pork sticks and the chorizo. But we ate much much more! The waitress is extremely smiley and friendly! Great restaurant.

Had to go back to my favourite restaurant in Tulum again this year, and visited 4 times, each visit was excellent. The staff are all so friendly and the service and food is superb. We always order the patas bravas as they are so delicious. Husband always opts for the meat dishes and seafood and I always choose the vegetarian... More

Just finished my delicious vegetable paella for breakfast, the morning after a great meal at Don Pepe's. Located right downtown in Tulum, the outdoor tables provide a great venue for people watching, but we chose to sit at a booth inside, under the corrugated steel roof, beneath a Picasso style soccer poster. We chose two tapas and shared a paella,... More

So good I went here twice. I had been in Mexico for five weeks by the time I found this spot, so I was craving something different than Mexican food. This place really hit the spot, and reminded me of Spain. It's an intimate little joint off the main drag with indoor and outdoor seating. Perfect for couples or small... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants during our annual winter life near Tulum. The tapas are delicious and fun to share, but recently we have ordered paella. Some in our group said it was better than paella they had had in Spain! One of the owners is from Barcelona. Have one or two tapas while the paella is prepared!

We were looking for something off the main street, something less crowded, something less noisy, and something different than the standard mexican fare which gets tiresome after a while. And then we noticed La Gloria. We ordered seafood paella for two. It took the full 30 minutes to prepare which is a good sign. The dish itself was ok, a... More
