This property was suggested by friends, so we took a look. Restaurant is right in the middle of Aldea Zama, the best and nicest area of Tulum. Open air, Italian and pizza. Our food was delicious and the services was great. What a nice atmosphere...More

Place is certainly everything but italian as advertised, food tastes like...nothing, its tasteless. Flies are freely flying to land ob your food giving it a hint of taste its missing. Certainly not returning.

Hmmm, 9 types of wood-oven pizza made by our chef from Milan, Italy. Lasagna, Shrimp Fettuccine, Eggplant Parmigiana, Mediterranean-style prepared Octopus, Gnocchi in Arrabbiata Sauce and Tiramisu for dessert. Not to mention other great options. I guess we're missing something. ;-(

Chacabar is the place to have a casual, easygoing lunch in Tulum. The octopus is particularly great, but all of the food we had here during our two visits was very good. Pizza doesn’t start until 4pm, so we missed out on that but the...More

My previous experience with Chacabar was for dinner only (and 5 star) on my visit last year. This time I visited for an early morning (ok, mid-morning in tequila time) breakfast. OUTSTANDING. The Canadian bacon omelette with some infused peppers and assortment of salsa was...More

We walked to Chacabar from our house, and had a great dinner. We ordered pizzas, pastas, pulpo (octopus) and everything was great (although the octopus could have been more well-done). Kids had their own table and had fun eating al fresco. Great spot! Would definitely...More

The breakfast was absolutely delicious - one of the best guacamoles I've had in some time with perfectly cooked eggs. We came again later in the trip for dinner and that was also delicious. The staff are super friendly.More
