With a dynamic mixture of seasonal menus, worldwide awarded chefs and the unique fusion of different cultures crowned by delicious Mexican cuisine, the variety of restaurants that coexist in Tulum offer visitors an exciting dining experience, full of color and exotic flavors, surrounded by a natural organic environment, as minimalist as extraordinary.

The gastronomic experience found in Tulum restaurants goes beyond the exercise of feeding the body; it becomes a new way to connect the soul with the natural elements, a connection that is constantly felt while visiting the Magic Village of Tulum. Therefore, eating in Tulum becomes a celebration, where not only the body is fed but the soul and the spirit too.

There’s no good answer to “which is the best restaurant in Tulum?” . For some years now, this paradise of the Mexican Caribbean has been known to break with the established paradigms regarding tourism. The perfect climate, the communion with nature and the lifestyle do not resemble anything you have known before. The same happens with Tulum’s cuisine, which is so unique, so alternative, that we can only recommend you to visit as many restaurants as you can; we’re sure each new place will become your instant favorite.

At Maria del Mar Boutique Hotel we like to consider ourselves gourmet sybarites, but we cannot tell you which will be the place that you’ll like the most. We know about food, how to cook, and we certainly know about providing unforgettable experiences to our guests. For that reason, we came out with this small selection of some of the restaurants in Tulum that you can’t miss, based on what we, as locals, prefer and on their customers’ reviews.
