Enjoyed the dinner, but underwhelmed for the price. The beet salad was tasty, but small. The fried oyster was well prepared, but the slaw side had too much vinegar. The lobster entree was very well prepared, tender and perfectly cooked. The chocolate ganache and cheese cake were a nice finish. Overall, for $90 US per person before tip in Tulum,... More

Went to this restaurant while staying at one of its sister hotels down the road. We had visited all of the other sister hotels and had their food and this was our last stop. Let me start by saying that they do the food well at every restaurant at the chain but I believe Unico was my favorite. I am... More

There is some amazing food in Tulum so it is difficult to say this was the best. But the Ambiance was second to none. Located Sea Side in a very beautiful boutique hotel, this restaurant offered a true fine dining experience. Highly recommend. Prices on the high side but worth every penny to enjoy seafood by the sea.

Overall the food is great in Tulum but if you're tired of jungle and mosquitos while you eat, Unico offers a unique fine dining experience in a beautiful setting. We enjoyed everything we ate there and the service was also top notch. Our meal began with complimentary plantains and a mint-rum cocktail. From there we did a few cocktails with... More

When I tell you this is some of the best food I have ever eaten anywhere !!! I wish I had taken pictures. The location is beautiful, the staff is extremely attentive and polite. We ordered the shrimp as the appetizer which was to die for. As our main course we had the tuna, it was so light and delicious.... More

After walking the beach in the late afternoon, it began to rain, so we popped in to the bar and did crosswords for a couple of hours while waiting out the weather. The bathrooms here are really nice, and I was very glad for the actual cloth towels. Good pitcher of Sangria from Carlos -- my husband kept him amused... More

Loved the view of the restaurant by the sea. The food great. I've tried 'salted fish-pescado a la sal', tuna and ceviche! They also have very fresh cocktails.
