We ate at the Kinich in Izamal and we were looking forward to another great meal at the Kinich in Tulum. We were not disappointed. The service again was excellent: friendly and helpful (we struggle with limited Spanish). The dishes are authentic Yucatan. We still...More

We drove down to Tulum for a grocery run and bank stop and decided to have lunch. We drove down the main street looking for a couple of names we have heard. I couldn't help much as the drive at the time we were there...More

We Invite you to stop in for a traditional but sometimes hard to find MAYAN FOOD. Located away from the thumping headache inducing club scene, our Restaurant offers you several Mayan dishes like our delicious Cochinita Pibil, Our Queso Relleno or an exotic Mayan style Venison.
