We stayed next door and went here for dinner. The food is great and the Lobster Risotto was a stand out. Service was fantastic and the location right on the beach was very romantic.

We ended up at this little restaurant because a huge rainy storm came in.Beautiful view of the ocean & small beach with hammocks to lay in when you are done eating. We only had appetizers but they were great. The margarita I ordered didn't taste like what I am used to and I didn't like it. The prices were inexpensive.... More

The food was amazing here! ordered the pesto pasta but with lobster. The best food I had in my whole mexico visit. Staff were friendly. The seating outside was beautiful as well. Right on the beach with a candle light setting. Such a relaxing vibe. Can't wait to go back!

Banana beer and ribs what more could you want? Great food, great service, great view and really good drinks. Staff very attentive, on Mexico time of course, but they met and exceeded our expectations.

My wife and I spent 11 days in Tulum and visited Restaurant Piedra Escondida over a dozen times for dinner and/ or lunch. Each and every time was an exceptional experience. Normally I never order beef in the Caribbean as it is usually disappointing. I ordered a blue rare Filet Mignon that was perfectly charred on the exterior, blue rare... More

I recently stayed at Piedra Escondida with my wife (we were on our honeymoon). The food that is prepared there at the restaurant is quite excellent! There are other places to eat in the area, and we did venture out a couple of times, but we found ourselves returning to our Hotel's restaurant more often than not - and not... More

We stopped in this place for a very late lunch at around 4 p.m. Had guacamole and fish tacos. Everything was fresh and totally wonderful. The waiter was charming and view couldn't be beat. I totally recommend this casual place.

The food is absolutely the best food we had during our stay in Tulum! the chef definitely knows his stuff: amazing flavors, balanced, delicious dishes with excellent presentation. We are both chefs ( my husband is Culinary Institute of America grad) and we know the... More

We discovered this restaurant the winter before last on our way to the tip of Punta Allen and the grilled fish, shrimp dinners, vegetables and the desserts were worth the misery we went through going down the peninsula. It was so good, we drove back down from Cancun just for lunch and dessert again in 2015. In 2016 we brought... More
