“Great drinks and finally som Mexican food with a twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2014

During our 4 week stay in Mexico we had a lot of nice meals, but Cenzontle was one of the few places where the food and the drinks had a touch of something different and something thas was closer to a restaurant experience than other places in Tulum. Great drinks with Nordic klinging names as Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman, food that tasted great but with a modern twist, supernice service and a cosy garden setting.

“A true gem in Tulum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Cenzontle is one of my favorite restaurants of the Tulum area. As soon as you enter, the laid back, eclectic ambiance sets the mood for an easygoing dining experience. The menu is mouthwatering with creative accents and the coctails are outrageously delicious.
The owner Ivan is warm and welcoming and the whole staff is great.
Really a top-notch experience, without all the ego.
I definitely will be back.

“Romantic restaurant with great food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014 via mobile

Very good food, romantic location and extremely nice service! Try the brownie as a dessert and the shrimp as a main course! Even though it is not a very big portion it is definitely worth to try - great romantic experience!

“Great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

Was one of the best restaurants we found on Tulum beach. Rustic hippy chic. Awsome food, amazing staff and great atmosphere. Try the Prawn with passion fruit ice-cream! It is delicious. Upon reading another reveiw I see they have said the portion size is small. Anything but, you are totally stuffed when you leave there! Resonably priced compared to the other restaurants on Tulum Beach.
