My family and I had dinner here while we were on vacation in Playa del Carmen for a couple weeks. Our hotel concierge (at Fairmont Mayacoba) recommended we give Xulam a try for dinner. As a server at a 5 star resort, I was very impressed with the service and food quality we received.
Welcome drinks were presented to us as we marveled over the diverse menu. My brother and I chose "arrows" which were presented on skewers dangling from a natural wood base. All our plates were presented beautifully and the food was amazing! The tortillas were homemade and the meat was savory and grilled in a way that made it tender and juicy.
Upon our arrival, we were greeted warmly by the owner who made us feel right at home. Our server was highly attentive, anticipating our every need. He even wiped up the most minor of food spills throughout our meal (maybe a little overkill). The manager checked in with us regularly to ensure that we were happy.
Xulam's interior is designed to make you feel that you've walked into a cave with spiraling tree roots and branches. The decor is intricate and creates an authentic and unique feel to your dining experience. The outside is not exception to the ornate quality of the restaurant. Colorful parrots perch themselves in the thick trees and rustic cages surrounding Xulam. A mix of lanterns and twinkle lights make for a peaceful atmosphere outside.
I highly recommend checking out Xulam if you're in Playa del Carmen. The attention to detail is apparent in Xulam's service, delicious food, and decor.
