The Top Restaurants In Tulum, And What You Should Order
Tulum has become a hot spot over the last year, due to Mexico staying open for tourism while others remained closed. However, if feel that a vacation is not complete without great food, you have come to the right place.
Tulum is filled with both small authentic restaurants, and fine dining. Here are the top restaurants in the area and what we recommend you order.
1. Parole Tulum
Italian food in Tulum? Yes! While you might think this restaurant doesn’t belong, it does. The rustic decor of Tulum fused with the comfort of Italy, Parole Tulum has become a popular dinner choice. Order Recommendation: Fettuccine Alla Carbonara Al Tartufo (Main) , Cheesecake Di Fichi (Dessert), La Dolce Vita (Cocktail).
2. Taboo Tulum
Taboo is the “it” spot during the day, famous for its beach club. The restaurant, which comes alive at night with a firework and light show, is also very sought-after. Order Recommendation: Salmon Tacos (small plate), Rack of Lamb (main plate), Carrot Cake (dessert) and the Mojito Cubano Hookah.
3. Spyder Cafe – Located in Hotel Blanco Tulum
Looking for a late breakfast or a light lunch? Spyder Café, located in the lobby of Hotel Blanco Tulum, is the perfect place. This casual restaurant will make you feel like you are back home, at your favorite bar. It’s also a tattoo shop. Order Recommendations: The Chicken Run, Nachos Con Carne and Amelie Burger.
4. Ziggy’s Beach Club
Whether you decide to dine indoors, or outdoor on a sun-bed in the sand, Ziggy’s will not disappoint. Enjoy the music, fresh coconut water bar and the sound of the ocean while you eat. Order Recommendation: Jamaica Empanadas (starter), Short Rib in prehispanic sauce (main) and Chocolate Coffee Cake (dessert).
5. Rosa Negra
Rosa Negra is a MUST if you are visiting Tulum. This bohemian-themed restaurant is the talk of the town. It’s so popular, you’ll need a reservation to dine there, at least a month prior to visiting. However, when you arrive, you will see exactly why. Order Recommendation: Street Corn on the Cob, Bone-In Rib Eye (to share with the table) and the Branzino.
