We went here as we could hear bands playing, all of which were excellant. Cocktails good as is the service. Didnt eat in here so can't comment on that.

We went to Puro Corazon twice during our week vacation in Tulum. The wait staff was friendly, and the owner was very welcoming, greeting the table and making sure we were satisfied with our meals. Fresh featured fish were recommended and delicious. Appetizers were creative and filling, especially the Tower of London and the Yucca balls.

The best part of our second visit was that the owner, Guillaume, offered to cook a fish for our diner if we caught one the following day. I think he was surprised that we actually returned with some fresh fish! Once again, staff was friendly, the sides were delicious, and overall, very happy with both of our experiences.

The space is intimate, and the band was setting up as we finished our second visit.

"Wow" is the first word coming in my mind! I rarely ate such a good food. The menu definitely got my interest, but the food was exceptional. It is definitely a gourmet food, balancing all the suitability of the ingredients to perfection. Caribbean fish with passion fruit and guacamole with pineapple were surprising, elegant, excellent! The bonus was to have a great DJ.
I am so sad I discovered that place the last day, otherwise I would have came back again and again.

Ate here for dinner as it was a short walk from our hotel and recommended by our dive guide. Quite quiet on the night we went so the atmosphere was perhaps a little lacking. Setting was very nice like many of the beach restaurants in Tulum, in a small clearing full of native plants. Waitress was fine if a little distracted. Started with deep-fired yucca balls with local cheese. Never seen these before. Tasted like potato balls but with quite a nice molten, local cheese centre. Could have done with a salsa to provide balance.

Both ordered fish cooked in banana leaf with rice. The fish was only just cooked all the way through, sauce was ok until we hit chunks of banana, which didn't really work either in terms of texture or flavour with the rest of the dish. Side order salad was again ok without anything to excite.

Wandered in. I have been to Tulum at least 10 times. 4 of us dined and ALL of us loved our meals. Atmosphere is Tulum esque, our wait staff was professional and friendly.
