My roommate and I were staying in the area and came here for the beach/restaurant/service 3 days in a row! Our waiter's name was Primo, and he was the absolute best. We became quick friends with him and he took amazing care of us. As soon as we walked up to the bar/beach area his was so helpful. While we... More

We lucked into two for one cocktails at the Mulberry Bar while we had an amazing taco lunch at La Zebra. Really good service and the DJ was a fun addition.

La Zebra serves a delicious dinner and amazingly fresh ceviche. Came here with my sister and we loved it so much, we came back for their Sunday salsa dance party. Great service and a great place to relax and watch the sun go down after a day at the beach.

We were staying at the Alaya next door and decided to try la Zebra one night. We loved it so much we went a second time! Drinks are very good and this is real Mexican food (I'm Mexican). It's a bit expensive but if you have to pick a nice place for a romantic dinner or special occasion this is... More

I was traveling with 2 teenagers and this was the spot they requested for a second visit. I preferred the lunch menu, only because the dinner menu 'tried too hard' in my opinion. All the restaurants in Tulum are competing for hipster foodie celebrity chef status... but I think La Zebra should just go ahead and do their conservative, touristy... More

This restaurant was recommended by us by our B & B in Isla Mujeres and we finally went at the end of our trip. A bit disappointed we didn't come sooner because we loved the food, it was SO good! I had a vegetarian burrito and fries and my husband had a chicken burrito and ceviche and we finished our... More

We got a bad feeling the moment we walked in, but we had a booking & decided to honour it. The beachfront Mulberry Project bar is nice & makes good drinks. And the beach is spectacular (hence why a 1 vs 0 star review). But everything about the restaurant was dire... We ordered wine with our meal - starters arrived... More

Dear guest, I have read with great concern your review about your dinner with us as it is very far from the experience we are known for, as you may see from other reviews here in Trip Advisor. The errors in timing and basic service issues and the quality of the tacos you mention are so unlike us that I... More

Everything was delicious! Ask about the chef's table - with 24 hours notice they should be able to seat you there and the chef takes requests. The staff were all incredibly friendly and they all spoke English.

Beautiful patio seating facing the azure sea along with cloth napkins. The four of us unanimously chose to return for a second lunch while on the same trip. Don't miss out on the Ahi salad. Sliced wafer thin in a vinaigrette dressing. Absolutely melt in your mouth. As for drinks you have to try the refreshing cucumber drink with tequila,... More

We came by to hang out at their beach bar for the afternoon. It had a cool, fun vibe and a really nice set up with the lounges etc. We actually hung out in a boat!! The food was the best lunch we had the entire time in Tulum. Healthy, fresh, creative and flavorful. Service a tad slow, but then... More

Located right on the stunning Tulum beach, La Zebra is dedicated to fresh, delicious modern Mexican beach cuisine. And our bar features fresh juices, smoothies and a range of now famous cocktails (try our fresh sugar cane juice mojitos, or the La Zebra margarita with fresh pineapple juice and a hint of ginger). Sunday nights we have a salsa dance party with live Cuban salsa band....So come dance under the stars with us!
