Completely candle lit - this place was interesting and beautiful and the food may have been the best we had on our trip.

“Most expensive pasta ever eaten!”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

I think I have found the most expensive pasta in the entire Mexico! We had been recommend to visit this little restaurant and the atmosphere was very nice, right on the beach with candle lights all over the place.

But paying 25-30 USD for a pasta plate is just not worth it!

The pasta is “home made” and portion are large but it’s just pasta. The bread was good and the service as well. ATM in the restaurant did not work and they only accept CASH so make sure you bring Cash only with you!

Wine list nothing cheaper than the pasta so go for a beer or water! Eat Italian in Italy.

But as said the atmosphere was very nice, romantic and cozy but this is an expensive place!

“my birthday lunch!”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

We were in Tulum for my birthday. We did not stay here but had heard from a few people that this was a great place to eat so I picked it for my birthday lunch and I was not disappointed. I loved the atmosphere; on the beach and pretty but casual. We had a pasta and a fish dish, we were both very happy with our selections. There was a menu with more than three choices...so I do not know if lunch is different or the menus are new?
I give it a big thumbs up!

“Fantastic fresh pasta and fish”
Reviewed February 3, 2014 via mobile

This is our second time in Tulum and second visit to Posada Margherita. The restaurant offers a very simple, yet delicious and sophisticated menu. The pasta is perfect. Beautifully fresh, cooked with perfectly complimentary sauces. The fresh fish is sumptuous. Recommend the pasta with zucchini and shrimp and fish cooked Acqua Pazza. The atmosphere is also great - relaxed and cool. Wonderful place.

“Superb restaurant”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

From the minute you enter the grounds of this restaurant, you are charmed by the surrounding and beautiful vegetation. It is like a botanical garden with candles and lanterns. The dining room is rustic and delightful. They make their own pasta, and all ingredients are fresh. The four of us shared two delicious salads, and then we loved our entrees -- pasta with shrimp, enormous shrimp in white wine sauce and red snapper with mushrooms. For dessert, we shared a chocolate mousse and tiramusa. We also ordered an excellent bottle of Chardonnay. We highly recommend this restaurant. It is a little pricey, but it is all worth it. This restaurant only accepts cash.
