Atmosphere, food, service was excellent. A gem in Tulum. You must visit. We drove from Riviera Maya just to experience this restaurant. Will definitely revisit the area on our next trip.

“Always great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This region of Mexico is so fortunate to have Chef Stefan and his family at this wonderful restaurant. My wife and I had the Salmon and the duck along with the suggested starters, along with desert and the recommended wine. Hechizo is not inexpensive, but the presentation and delivery of such wonderful cuisine prepared by such a great Chef and his staff, justify the trip and the expense.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I promised my boyfriend an great birthday dinner on our vacation! I have to say Hechizo was the place! Chef Stefan was awesome, we couldn't have asked for a more perfect dinner. My boyfriend had the fixed price dinner (5 -course - okay 6 with his birthday surprise dessert), I opted to have the Lobster tail and gnocchi. A must try is the Watermelon Goat cheese salad - to die for...so good! All staff was exemplary - and we had the most wonderful evening.

“A great romantic gourmet restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We really enjoyed Hechizo. It's off the beaten path, but worth it. We had the 5 course prix fixe menu, and while all of it was excellent, I'm still thinking about the dark chocolate cake with the passion fruit sauce. Unfortunately I live in Wisconsin, and passion fruit is not something they stock at the local grocery store.

And while the food was amazing, the best part of this place was actually the chef. We asked our waiter for a wine recommendation, and his response was to bring the chef out to recommend something. And the chef just comes out of the kitchen every once in a while to check on everyone. It was just really cool to see his passion for cooking.

We were just at Hechizo for dinner, but the setting was beautiful, and it would have made a great place for a wedding rehearsal dinner or a family get together.
