Stefan (chef and owner) made an excellent catering for my sister's weeding. The place is beautiful and the staff was nice and helpful. I don't know if you can order the same dishes we had but I can only say everything was delicious and interesting. The watermelon with goat cheese and pine nuts was a thing to remember!

We followed TripAdvisor reviews in picking Hechizo for our wedding rehearsal dinner. I'm really glad we did. It went far and beyond our - and our guests' - expectations, and was a refreshing contrast to some of the experiences we had working with other venues, which were...fine but lacked polish and organization.

Hechizo is a first-rate operation, not to mention a beautiful space with an attentive, detailed staff. It all starts with Stefan, the chef, who ran everything with Swiss watch precision. He was as much chef as organizer, keeping the evening flowing and coordinating to make sure the speeches fell between entrees.

It all equaled an absolutely perfect evening, one that our guests couldn't stop raving about. In many ways, it was the highlight of our time in Tulum. I'd highly recommend anyone who travels to Tulum give Hechizo a try, and if you're looking for a wedding venue, you just can't do better.

So glad that we trusted online reviews and selected Hechizo as the rehearsal dinner venue for our son's wedding in Tulum, Mexico. Stefan and Hui are true professionals in every way, and were very communicative about options and estimates as to what to expect for a group our size. They itemized all costs so there were no surprises and helped us tailor an amazing menu for a group of 50+ that needed to accommodate children and dietary restrictions. The venue itself was amazing! We knew it was going to be a special place, but it was way beyond our expectation. We opted for a pre-dinner appetizer reception out on the beautiful private beach area of the restaurant. So glad we did. Our guests got to enjoy drinks, appetizers and conversation while enjoying the ocean breeze before sitting down to the more formal dinner. Once our group came inside for dinner, Stefan, owner and executive chef, was on top of every aspect from start to finish to make sure this was a memorable occasion for our family and friends. It is obvious he takes great pride in giving patrons well executed menu selections and impeccable service. Compliments to the wait staff. They very very attentive yet never intrusive. Guests are still talking about the ambiance, menu and presentation...a highlight of the 4 day wedding activities. I hope we will visit the beautiful Tulum area again. Our first stop for dinner will be Hechizo.

On a more practical note, if you are hosting a large group, be sure to alert your credit card company to expect a charge. We won't make that mistake again!

We were aware that this restaurant could be tricky to find, having read other reviews on here, but as those reviews were very complementary about the restaurant we thought it would be worth the challenge.

When we eventually found the restaurant (via the beach) at 7.45pm it was all closed up and in darkness, despite the sign by that entrance saying it was open for dinner every day with seatings up to 8.30pm. Very disappointing.

Not many folk on the night we had dinner at Hechizo so the restaurant seemed kind of cavernous. My steak was excellent, a perfect rare. Son's lamb OK and fish dishes nicely done. Service was attentive and not obsequious. Very happy to have been able to order Macallan as this scotch is not ordinarily available at most restaurants in Tulum. The wine selection was however limited. I will certainly dine at Hechizo again.
