I researched this place before coming to Tulum and it didn't disappoint. Very cool, shaded place to eat midday when the heat on the beach is unbearable. The decor is shabby chic and the table seats are hardwood. I loved the small Mayan looking bungalows and rustic bar area which made me feel like I was back in time. The... More

We went on a rainy night in early December for dinner, having stumbled upon the place the day before while at the beach. Seating was limited to under the bar palapa roof because of the rain but their was only one other table occupied. Wait staff were wonderful (and had to wear raincoats to go to and from the tiny...

We enjoyed excellent tuna tataki and grilled squid on more than one occasion... delicious and generous portions. The papardelle of duck was also very savoury although a bit too salty for my taste but this said, I will order it again. On the lighter fare, guacamole and bruschetta were very good. On the lunch menu, we had the burger and... More

Food was overpriced. Menu was limited. Server was very nice. The chef sucked. We saw her kicking some resort guests out of a table because they had some snacks and beers. Keep in mind there are 20+ tables and we were one of two patrons dining that night. Seemed unnecessary and hostile. There was plenty of room, and I'm sure... More

Run by two amazing and beautiful lady's who love what they are doing : authentic homemade Mexican food in the most artistic open air setting by the beach. More than good value for money!

Stumbled upon this on a beach walk. Impossible to get past the incredible aroma without stopping to try it-hungry or not. This is real Mexico, beautiful, rustic setting under the trees, just back from the beach. The waitress was a doll, the food was fresh and fabulous, and so many cute little extra's to complete the picture; the painted skull... More

We had the pleasure to eat quite a few meals at Nuestra Cocina during our recent stay (Oct.30th to Nov.9th 2013) : more than once we had huge portions of fresh savoury octopus, generous portions of very tender filet mignon (cooked rare, as requested, it was easy to tell the meat was of great quality), tasty "loma de puerco" with...

I just had two wonderful dinners and one lunch at Nuestra Cocina located in Playa Esperanza, Tulum. Everything we've had has been amazing. The octopus is very well done and exquisite. The grill they do on Sunday is awesome and their drinks are very refreshing. This restaurant is more expensive than many restaurants in town but compared to El bar... More
