I was expecting great things from this place due to all of the positive reviews that I’ve read and was a bit underwhelmed. We ordered several tapas to satisfy our appetite and enjoy with our glasses of wine. I have found tapas to be an excellent way to sample a restaurants cuisine. Our selections arrived in a timely manner but... More

We have eaten here the last 3 nights in Tulum and plan to go back again tomorrow! We've tried several of their tapas and their paella and all were delicious. We tried their garlic chicken wings, their pinchos, their papas bravas, the queso fundido with sausage, and their paella mixta. All were served hot and fresh and delicious! All food... More

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.

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
