We came upon Puro Corazon by chance and are so happy we did! Our whole night was what we had hoped for! To start, the food is amazing - I ordered beef tacos which were delicious and only $14! My husband and one other friend both ordered fish dishes and each thought their dinners were fresh and delicious. Also, the black bean dip was so good that it was eaten with a spoon when we were all out of chips.
The atmosphere was exactly what we were looking - they had live music and a very attentive and welcoming staff. We chatted a lot with chef's husband who was helping out on the floor. It was our friend's birthday so we mentioned it to someone with the band and the band incorporated 'Happy Birthday, Brandy' into the Black Eyed Peas song they were singing. Then a complimentary piece of cake and a personal happy birthday song was sung by the staff all making the birthday girl (and all of us) feel pretty special. In all, a wonderful night - I would highly recommend!

We stayed at Azulik in Tulum and ended up at the neaby Puro Corazon for two nights. Each night there was great live music and we enjoyed freshly caught, grilled fish and seafood. The atmosphere is more rustic than hip, and the drinks were pretty good, especially their signature Mayab mescal cocktail. It's nice to have live music accompanying a meal, where you can also have a conversation with your table-mates.

We visited Puro Corazon twice during a recent holiday to Tulum. The food was solid - try the cactus salad with cheese and semolina or the breaded shrimp with tamarind chutney - but what we loved most was the atmosphere. Puro Corazon has an unpretentious, laid-back beach vibe with friendly service. Each night features a different live music act from Latin jazz to Mexican roots. Puro Corazon helped make our stay in Tulum a special one. Highly recommended!

This place is a treasure!
I went with two friends after a day on the beach for some cocktails here during their happy hours. We got such a great service and decided to stay for dinner. We had several tapas dishes on recommendations and loved it all!
A local band came to play and soon the whole venue was full. The owner and his wife came to our table during the night, and so did the chef. In fact we ended up partying with the chef after the place closed.
All in all an amazing experience, and I wrote about it here too http://thegipsygiraffe.com/2013/10/17/on-a-mission-in-tulum/

We have visited this restaurant many times now, and love the food (tasty, fresh Yucatan dishes including seafood, chicken, and steak), the drinks (great cocktails and fresh fruit beverages), and live music (flamenco, jazz, and more...)! Don't miss this little gem!
