What they fail to advertise is the minimum amounts you must spend to dine in the birds nest ($500-$1000 minimum). We got (4) drinks, an app, and (2) main entrees and our meal was $250.00. You’re really paying for the experience. The food was good (not the best meal I’ve ever had, but good), portions are EXTREMELY small (I was still hungry after dinner) but I find it disturbing the truffle fettuccine was $57.00 and the 4oz. Ribeye was $40.00. We paid for my birthday dessert and the waiter kept pushing us to order when we were trying to enjoy ourselves. There were two girls in front of us that did not have a reservation and had to pay $60.00 USD to just get into Kin Toh, that didn’t include their over priced drinks. Overall, we took great pictures, basically dined in the dark for the last hour and a half of our meal and left hungry.

Definitely in the pricier side but totally worth it in my opinion. Eating at this restaurant is definitely an experience. The food was amazing, but the ambiance is what really makes this restaurant special. How many others can you think of located in the tops of trees?

Amazing all round the only downer was the charge to watch the sunset on the roof even though we were eating there. Only bleamish of the evening. Not many places to watch the sunset in Tulum and would have made the evening perfect. £25 each for one drink and nibbles which we didn’t want as we had dinner booked 15 minutes after . We could however sit int he bar we can’t watch the sun set for free and buy cocktails. Would have been 5* for a birthday if this would have been accommodated

I recommend Kin Toh, the launch with hookah , the Azulik resort and the sunset experience to everyone visiting Tulum and Reviera Maya. It as amazing and romantic eco-chic experience.
The staff was super friendly, hookah was amazing...Food was over the top...I live in NYC and can claim the qulity was top chef one.. Thank you for the great experience. The staff was very helpful trough the process of making reservation as well. Great job! #JointheTribe

Celebrated my boyfriends’s birthday at Kin Toh. We had a romantic and private dinner with outdoor seating. The food was delicious, the views while dinner were great as we got to see the sunset. Our waiter Juan was amazing, he had great good recommendations and was very attentive and kind.

I would recomendable for special occasion as it is very pricey.

Amazing structure and amazing food. Hookah way overpriced for the lack of flavor and upkeep per say. No one offered anything to drink aside from water, but neither here nor there. Definitely lives up to the hype though.

Very nice and beautiful place. We did not have the chance to see the nest because they were under remodelling but the restaurant itself is very pretty in the middle of the jungle.
The cocktails are good, the staff is nice and efficient.
It gets a bit too dark when the sun goes down, hard to see the dishes. Also, big difference between the quality of the place, of the food, of the presentation of the dishes and the cuttlery (basic and ugly)/ paper towels. The wine glasses are pretty, the table is cute, towels in the toilet ... Weird contrast!
And too bad that the lady who came to make the payment with our credit card did not crack a word (hello, thank you, goodbye : NOTHING!!) A bit sad as a last impression.
But overall experience: NICE and i RECOMMEND the place!

This restaurant was overhyped and believe it is only a social media marketing scheme. Though the architecture is different from most restaurants, I think that is all this restaurant has to offer. The food was ok but we expected that walking into the restaurant and sadly our experience confirmed it. Our server was professional and kind. However, while exploring the restaurant some of the employees were really rude when we asked for them to take a picture. Note to those employees, you work in a high tourist area and restaurant that will attract tourist who will want pictures... if you get annoyed with people asking you to take their pictures then this is not the place for you to work. For the managers, please train your employees to offer excellent customer service and me more particular in who you hire. Those employees will make or break the impression of Kin ToH. Based on my experience , will I return? Nope. Do I recommend this restaurant, hell no. If you are curious about this place, stick to the bar area only. You are restricted to go anywhere else if you have dinning reservations anyway. Food was not worth it.

The design of this place is amazing, but the food does not live up to the expectations. Overpriced, without good taste. I also felt the waiter was pressing us to order, while wanted to go with the flow. It made me feel as if they wanted to make sure we ordered enough food to pay for the experience (which we would have paid for anyway). I actually felt discriminated.

It is unfortunate that some employees are dishonest and announce that you have to pay 2,000 USD to take pictures. This is unacceptable. In spite of that the place is very beautiful and we eats well. The service was excellent with Alvaro. He is very professional. The 5 star is for him.

Mucha inconsistencia en la experiencia. La presentación del lugar y los platillos, estupendos, sin embargo el servicio, la comida y la presentación de la mesa muy regulares. Por el precio que se paga, esperarías que los servicios en la mesa, estuvieran a la altura. Una servilleta de papel, falta de cubiertos y mucha obscuridad lo cual no te permite disfrutar de la presentación de la comida.

We had an exceptional time at Kin Toh. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were fascinated by the ambiance, food, and staff. Our server went above and beyond for us, we arrived just prior to sunset and he went out of his way to show us some of the best viewing points of the restaurant. Also took the time to list every ingredient in our dishes as well as recommended what was most popular. Couldn’t have had a better experience and would highly recommend Kin Toh if visiting tulum.

came here at 5:30pm on a Tuesday night, specifically asked for a window seat but was seated in the middle of the restaurant and very far from the windows because we were not staying at the hotel. Most of the window seats were empty by the time we finished our meal. Food was okay but overpriced. If you are not staying at the hotel and want to come here for the views, please think twice - simply not worth it.

Alright, so I had mixed feelings about actually eating at this restaurant because of all the conflicting reviews. I knew I HAD to go simply to get pictures and see the view and design of the restaurant because I had seen pictures on Instagram of how beautiful it was. We decided to stay and eat with my reservation instead of just getting drinks and WOW. The cocktails were so good and the food was very tasty. Small portions but with all the bread I was actually stuffed and couldn’t even finish my dinner. I think the 4 course menu option is the way to go it’s about 118usd. Two apps a main and dessert. Our waiter said it would be too small to share so my boyfriend and I got that and just added on another main dish and it was perfect. It’s definitely an expensive dinner and the food was really tasty but honestly it’s probably not worth the $100 but you know you’re paying for the atmosphere and experience. I read bad reviews about service but our waiter was truly phenomenal and so attentive. The best service we got our entire trip In Tulum besides at Gitano. He even told us about the wine cellar and said it was great for photos at the end of our meal. I highly recommend Kin Toh. Was way better than I expected!
