Since you arrive the atmosphere and tranquility welcome you, surrounded by the caribbean ocean and a vast tropical forest, this place will just embrace you pleasantly and make you feel that you are part of Turquesa.
The food is fresh and they make it on the spot, the service is excellent, they treat you like a friend and they show you what to do or where to go, good option in Tulum, if you want a relaxing and different holidays, more in contact with nature and in a kindly around, this is the place to be.

I've eaten at Turquesa restaurant many times during my holidays in Tulum and every time I had a great experience. The food is delicious, from chicken tacos to chiles rejenos, guacamole and home made spicy sauce. All food is prepared at the moment with local fresh products.
The service is also brilliant! Eating and staying at Turquesa feels like being part of a family. The owners have an extensive knowledge of the area and the surroundings and were very helpful in arranging my trips to the places I wanted to visit.
The restaurant is located seconds away from the beach in a beautiful spot with lots of palm trees; there are also two lovely dogs (Pupi and Prince) to play with while drinking a Margarita or Mojito. Yep, the cocktails are spot on too.
If you want to enjoy delicious food and cocktails in a friendly atmosphere and lovely spot in Tulum, Turquesa is the place!

First of it is important to take this review as subjective. We travel as a couple and my bf is a chef.

The food was not what we expected. The meat for the fajitas was dry and under seasoned, they said it should be grilled but it was actually fried. Overall tasteless and boring. Service was friendly.

Beautiful little restaurant near the beach in Tulum, the food was excellent, staff super friendly and quick service. And above all - great value! Compared to all the other generously over priced restaurants in the area this one was one of the best with one of the most fair prices.

We decided to have dinner in Turquesa basing on very good reviews. However, both me and my boyfriend were very disappointed because it was significantly below our expectations. Interior: not cozy at all, and tables are standing inside a building (not outside as we expected). Service: veeeeeeery slow! Even though there was only one more couple. Food: even guacamole was not tasty (how they managed to spoil it?) I was having a "rubber" chicken which was very hard to chew.

Dear Оксана Д, first of all i like to say thank you that you choose Turquesa as one of your restaurants in Tulum. I m really sorry that we didnt met your expactations. We are getting really good reviews here and not only in TA even the guest are happy who are leaving. The best comments we are getting for our Guacamole, so thats why i m confused that you dont like it. About our restaurant, yes we are in a palapa building which is totally open to all sides. You never get an information that we are in an open air area. The Palapa is our bonus especially for the days with a lot of rain. Anyway, again i m sorry that we didnt met your expactaion. We wish you all the best and send you regards from Tulum, Oliver, Turquesa
