Macario presents an ode to Mexican haute cuisine, reinterpreting its flavors, smells and textures in culinary works of art that will transport you to the indications of a millenary culture that knew how to extract the best that mother earth had to contribute and transform it into sumptuous creations recognized worldwide.

Located in the hotel zone of Tulum, Macario boasts contemporary baroque architecture, inspired by the unique essence of Mexico, a vast country of dogmas and doctrines dating back centuries. Creating the perfect conjunction between the jungle, indigenous culture and chic.

Eating is a biological act; cooking is a cultural act. Our cuisine is a perfect representation of this culture.

    Commercial music kills the place. You should definitely change the music. You will loose the Tulum spirit. Design of the place and the service are great. But the music...very bad.

    My 7 year old Birthday! The host was lovely at the door. They told us to wait but seated us so we can catch the show. After the show they took us to our seat! Our server Tulio greated us, explained the menu! The manager came by a couple times to check up on us if we were good and if the kids were good! We got to enjoy a few shows! It was so much fun! My kids are 7 and 3 and they had so much fun! Food was great! Service was amazing will come back! Tulio was very helpful and patient with us and our kids!

    Not worth driving to. The only road is in a terrible condition and very busy - 2 miles in 30+ minutes! The valet parking was 300 pesos, it's 15USD!!! Why? Good food and great service, but the meals are totally overpriced compared to similar quality and ambient contemporary mexican restaurants you can find all around. Nice venue overall but hard to get to and overpriced.

    Great ambiance with a group of girlfriends. We got mostly appetizers then desserts to share and tried two of the house cocktails each. Party ambiance with sparklers provably every 30 minutes and a fun Mexican themed short show. They brought us free shots and slice of cake for the birthday girl. Total was $1500 pesos each. Valet parking was 100 pesos extra plus if you want to leave a tip.

    We were invited back to Macario after previously having an issue with our first reservation and being quite disappointed at the hostess’s attitude. The manager got in touch with us personally and really wanted us to come back & change our experience. We were reluctant to go to be honest but we are really glad we did. The service from himself and Salvador was excellent - not too much but v attentive and friendly. This seemed genuine, as everyone at the restaurant seemed to be well looked after & being shown attention/fun. The show was amazing, the best one we have seen in Tulum! We had some beautiful salmon & pork belly - highly recommend. They more than made up for our initial first impression & seem like genuinely lovely people. Thank you very much for your generosity! Definitely worth a visit while in Tulum.

    Servers are intimating and always around you to try to get you to order more. Food is alright but overpriced. And music is so loud you cannot say 2 words to each other. The only plus is that the place looks nice. Very hyped up and a disappointment. Not our scene at all.

    The two unpleasant and negative experiences were one, the waiter not understanding our instructions of cash and two cards to cover the bill and then a tip will be provided. The waiter proceeds to inform my friend that $80 US is recommended tip and how he believes he earned it especially as he returned my friends meal when she stated she did not like it. My friends and I were a bit annoyed at this point because just like respect, a tip is earned, and you do not tell patrons what is recommended with our money. I was going to give $40 US additional to make it a $60 tip, but that behavior was off putting. My other friend proceeds to ask is the $80 dollars required or recommended. The waiter stated "recommended" so then my friend proceeds to say well if we are giving $20 tip that is our recommended are you saying that you do not want the tip as you are recommending $80. The waiter says that's not what I am saying and then takes the $20. I still give the $40 and then he wants to refuse it as my other friend goes out her way to make sure she gives him the additional $40. Second, we get to the valet parking, we leave the valet gets our car and we pay $15 and were given $5 US change from the $20 US given. This older man from the valet staff aggressively holds the car door open to the driver side where my friend is sitting and keeps going in and out of English and Spanish about giving a tip. Aggressive and intimidating behavior. I would not return here, bill overpriced, wait staff and valet staff obnoxious and aggressive about tips. A tip for Macario develop a gratuity system if you want recommended tip and then make the valet free to then receive a tip and treat USA/Female patrons with more respect. I would not return nor recommend this restaurant in Tulum. A horrible evening and I should have looked at the google reviews because other patrons have complained about the same thing with wait staff and the bill.

    Don’t waste you time: Pros: • Ambiance Cons: • Food was just ok. In fact the catch of the day was tasteless • No free parking. Valet only = $12 US. Neither valet or wait staff could break a US $100. You better exact change. The valet is a across a side street. Dark, we didn’t feel safe • The waiter pushed into making a tip. Just rude • Here’s the kicker and another reason we do not recommend Macario. While walking from the valet parking to host stand, the manager runs up to my wife & I and just barks at us: DO YOU HAVE RESERVATIONS??!! Scare the hell out of us! We politely said yes, and just thought “what the hell is this dude problem”. The waiter asked my wife if she liked eating crickets??!! We almost left right then, but my wife insisted we stay. • PS: the whole host staff stand around and look at their phones as you ask the password so you can review the menu. • All-N-All: regret we went & wouldn’t recommend it • Oh, and the hookah lady just freaked us out. PSS: this was our 4th trip Tulum. We know what to expect

    Unforgettable experience! They really know how to wow you and I will never forget this amazing night. Leo was our server and he is top notch. The food was delish, but even better was the full experience. The music, sparklers, electric violin player, acrobats, roller skaters, and day of the dead dancers were all magical AF. If you want a fabulous experience, delish food, and a night to remember, you must visit!
