Small very casual restaurant where you sit out on the sidewalk. It is cooler than inside and only 6 tables out there so don't go during the rush. The paella and the meatballs were excellent. This is cAsh only as is most places in Tulum.

This is a small restaurant that is a true hidden gem. Best paella and tapas served by friendly staff, so good we had to go back to sample more of their delicious food.

Been coming here a few times and I really like this small family style restaurant. The food is very typical and genuine Catalan. Of my favorites I would mention the pulpo, papa frita and Paella.

The smell & sight of a mixed paella as I passed a tiny "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant near Mama's Home Hostal on Calle Orion stopped me in my tracks! Unfortunately, the Barcelona Expat owner said a minimum order was 2 portions (2 x Pesos 165 - near US$17). But tbe tapa menu was extensive and reasonable: toasted bread (included), Escalivada (grilled eggplant... More

I've been coming to Tulum for over the years and none of these visits can't be completed without having a Paella at La Gloria de Don Pepe. With exquisite Spanish dishes and tapas, along with the warm and friendly staff, having having lunch / dinner here is an incredible experience anytime. The paella is perfectly cooked and yummy, and it's... More

I went here for dinner with some friends. We treated ourselves to several deliciously mouthwatering entres then shared an enormous pan of paella. And to be honest the paella was even better than the entres! All this was brought to us by our lovely waitress Adiee, who seemed to always be smiling and had no problems understanding my terrible spanish.

A great place for spanish food. The chiken "croquetas" are delicious, and the paella is one of the best I have always tasted. Very recomendable!

We were recommended this place by our hotel and it didn't disappoint. It's own by a guy from Barcelona so you can expect the tapa's and paella to be great...and they were. We opted for a couple of tapa's and then a shared mixed paella. Was superb. Would recommend!
